          D
When the earth was still flat
         D/B
And the clouds made of fire
       Aadd9
And mountains stretched up to the sky
G
 Sometimes higher
G
 Folks roamed the earth like big rolling kegs
          D
They had two sets of arms, they had two sets of legs
          F#m
They had two faces peering out of one giant head
             Em
So they could watch all around them
A
As they talked while they read
           G          A         D
And they never knew nothing of love
             G   A                D     G
It was before     the origin of love
                D    G
The origin of love

                  Bm
And there were three sexes then, one of them looked like two men glued up back to back
                            G
Called the children of the sun
      D
And similar in shape and girth were the children of the earth
                  D                      G
They looked like two girls rolled up in one
          A
And the children of the moon
             Bm
Were like a fork stuck on a spoon
            C#m
They were part sun part earth
                      A
Part daughter part son

     D           G      D    G
The origin of love

         D
Now the gods grew quite scared
        D/B
Of our strength and defiance
            G                          G
And Thor said, "I'm gonna kill 'em all with my hammer
     G            G
Like I killed the giants."
 G
And Zeus said, "No, you'd better let me
        D
Use my lightning like scissors
                D                                      D
Like I cut the legs off the whales, dinosaurs and the lizards
         F#m
Then he grabbed up some bolts
        G
And he let out a laugh
                        Em
Said, "I'll split them right dowm the middle
               A
Gonna cut 'em right up in half."
         G          A            D
And the storm clouds gathered above
                      G
Into great balls of fire

           Bm
And then fire shot down from the sky in bolts
                           G
Like shining blades of a knife
          Bm
And it ripped right through the flesh
                                                G
Of the children of the sun and the moon and the earth
               Bm
And some indian god sewed the wound up to a hole
                                    G
Pulled it around to our belly to remind us the price we paid
      Bm
And Osiris and the gods of the nile
                   G
Gathered up a big storm
               Em
To blow a hurricane
               Bm
To scatter us away
                       G
In a flood of wind and rain
                    Em
And a sea of tidal waves
                Bm
To wash us all away
                  G
And if we don't behave
                     Em
They'll cut us down again
              Ab                      G
And we'll be hopping 'round on one foot
D                          G
and looking through one eye



D
Last time I saw you
      Bm
We'd just split in two
          G
You were looking at me
       A
I was looking at you
               D
And you had a way so familiar
   Bm
I could not recognize
             G
Cuz you had blood on your face
       A
I had blood in my eyes
       D
But I swear by your expression
          Bm
That the pain down in your soul
         G                       A
Was the same as the one down in mine
            D
That's the pain
             Bm                             G
That cuts a straight line down through the heart
            A
We call it love
                D
We wrapped our arms 'round each other
                Bm
Tried to shove ourselves back together
                G              A
We were making love   making love
          D                        Bm
It was a cold dark evening such a long time ago
             G              A
When by the mighty hand of Jove
          D                       Bm
It was a sad story how we became lonely two-legged creatures
     G                       A
The story of the origin of love
                      D     G    D    G    D    G...
That's the origin of love
