[Verse 1]
A                   E
Got no future and a great big past
D                       E
Little bitty guy on the rim of my glass
A                       E
Gotta meet the plane so I can get my monkey
D                          E
Teach him to be cool but a little bit funky
A                   E
Got no credit and I got no fear
D                    E
Got about a buck, so I can buy a beer

Gotta see a doctor about the words that I said
D                      E
Gotta get a bike and I gotta paint it red

[Chorus]
A      E    
Oh no, we gotta go
D                  E
We're not goin' to live forever
A         E
Why, why, we gotta die
D                   E
You know that we'll be together
A         E 
Hey, hey, we gotta say
D             E
I could never be a saviour

You don't have to be there
           D             E            A

[Verse 2]
A                    E
Three feet deep in a slow motion wreck
      D                          E
I was walkin' the walk an' I was talkin' to the best
      A                           E
I was wrinkled an' shriveled an' steppin' out of line
            D                          E
Playin' the end against the middle an' losin' every time
      A                         E
I was veinious an' heinious an' cripple an' sad
D                               E
Thought I was invincible, the baddest of the bad
       A                        E
Then I woke up one mornin' and stepped out of bed
D                   E
Had to get a bike. Had to paint it red

[Chorus]
A      E    
Oh no, we gotta go
D                  E
We're not goin' to live forever
A         E
Why, why, we gotta die
D                   E
You know that we'll be together
A         E 
Hey, hey, we gotta say
D             E
I could never be a saviour
A                 E
You don't have to be there
           D             E            A            
'Cause I'm never, never, never coming home

[Instrumental]
A A   E E E   D D   E E E

[Bridge]
A            E               D              E
Crazy (I'm crazed, I want to tell you about it) (x4)

[Chorus]
A      E    
Oh no, we gotta go
D                  E
We're not goin' to live forever
A         E
Why, why, we gotta die
D                   E
You know that we'll be together
A         E 
Hey, hey, we gotta say
D             E
I could never be a saviour
A                 E
You don't have to be there
           D             E            A            
'Cause I'm never, never, never coming home

[Instrumental]
A A   E E E   D D   E E E

[Verse 3]
A                    E
Staring at disbelief out at the gloom
      D                      E
I was forced with remorse to learn the bassoon
  A                 E
I got real good in about six years
D                            E
Started playing around for a couple of beers
A                    E
Then one day I was playing at the gig
D                               E
An' in walked the monkey with a couple of funky friends
    A                        E
He came right over an' said "this is what you do"
D                    E
"You're gonna get a bike. You're gonna paint it blue."

[Chorus]
A      E    
Oh no, we gotta go
D                  E
We're not goin' to live forever
A         E
Why, why, we gotta die
D                   E
You know that we'll be together
A         E 
Hey, hey, we gotta say
D             E
I could never be a saviour
A                 E
You don't have to be there
           D             E            A            
'Cause I'm never, never, never coming home

[Outro]
A A   E E E   D D   E E E
