...CITY HALL... by Tenacious D
---------------...............

*from 'Tenacious D' (2001)*


Verse 1:

E                  B
 All you people up there, in City Hall;
E                             B
 You're fuckin' it up for the people that's in the streets.
E
 This is a song for the people,
       B
In the streets; not the people, City Hall.

Bridge 1:

G#   A   G#  A   G#   A    G# A   G#
 All you mot-her-fuck-ers, in the streets;
A     G#   A  G#   A   G#  A   G#
 It's time to rise up, up, up, up,
     G#    A        G#  A       G#
Come along children and fuckin' rise!

Interlude: (Faster Tempo)

A, F  G (x4)

Chorus 1:

A                    F        G
 Lots of times, when me and K-G are watchin';
A                     F            G            A
 All the fuckin' shit that's going down at City Hall.
F           G                 A
 We get the feeling we should fuck shit up,
                F               G
Yeah, we should fuckin' start a riot.

A  F  G     A  F  G
    A riot!

Chorus 2:

                             A
We have 'em screaming in the streets,
F            G            A
 We have 'em tippin' over shit,
                     F          G             A
And breakin' fuckin' windows of small busines-ses,
                    F     G
And settin' fuckin' fires!
A                    F     G
 And settin' fuckin' fires!
A                    F     G
 And settin' fuckin' fires!

Interlude:

A, F  G (x4)

Middle 8: (Slower Tempo)

A                            Amaj7
 And then after the smoke is cleared,
        A7
And the rubble has been swept away,
D                            Dm
 Me and KG will peek out our heads.
           A
We've been watching the riots on a monitor,
Dm                                E7
 Twenty floors below sea level... from a bunker.

A                        Amaj7                          A7
 We did it Rage-Kage; we beat the bastards of City Hall!
D                             Dm
 Hahaha! But now what will we do?
A
 We must rebuild.
    Dm                                         E7
But who will lead us in the rebuilding process?

A                                              Amaj7
 Man, it's got to be someone with the know-how,
                        A7
And the elbow grease to lead us to a new land.
D
 No, not me and KG, we don't have,
    F#m                          G
The cognitive capacity to lead... alright, we'll do it!

      E7                  (n.C)              Amaj7
We'll lead as two kings... we'll lead as two kings.
    Dmaj7                                Amaj7
Aah-haa... (two kings, we'll lead as two kings).
         Dmaj7                  Amaj7
Ah-ha ah-how, we'll lead as two kings.

    Amaj7              Dmaj7
The first decree is to legalize Marijuana.
    Amaj7                                  Dmaj7
The tyranny and the bullshit's gone on too long.
                           F#m
You old fuckin' shrivs who blocked it's legalization;
       G
You're banished, from the land!

      E7                  (n.C)              Amaj7
We'll lead as two kings... we'll lead as two kings.
    Dmaj7                                Amaj7
Aah-haa... (two kings, we'll lead as two kings).
         Dmaj7                  Amaj7
Ah-ha ah-how, we'll lead as two kings.

Amaj7              Dmaj7              Amaj7
 The second decree; no more pollution,
                        Dmaj7
No more car exhaust, or ocean dumpage.
F#m                             G
 From now on, we will travel in tubes!

      E7                  (n.C)                      Amaj7
We'll lead as two kings... we'll fuckin' lead as two kings.

        Dmaj7                               Amaj7
Get the scientists working on the tube tech-nology, immediately.
           Dmaj7
(Tube tech-nology). Chop, chop, let's go.

             Amaj7     Dmaj7             Amaj7
Third decree; no more... rich people and poor people.
                                F#m
From now on, we will all be the same...
G
 Umm, I dunno, I gotta think about that...

      E7                  (n.C)              Amaj7
We'll lead as two kings... we'll lead as two kings.

      Dmaj7                                Amaj7
Ha-ha-ho-hee, ha-ha-ho-hee, ha-ha-ho-ho-ho-ho.

            Dmaj7
(JB): Oh my God.
(KG): Aah... what?
                             Amaj7
(JB): Dude, the red phone is flashing.
(KG): Oh, yeah.
                                Dmaj7
(JB): Let me scoop that up. Hel-lo? Two Kings.
(KG): Who is it?
      Amaj7  Dmaj7
(JB): What?!  No! No fucking way!
(KG): What?
      F#m
(JB): Rage, there's a potato famine in Idaho, you gotta go down there!
G
 (JB): Dude, I gotta stay here!
(KG): Why do I have to go?
E7
 (JB): Please! Please!
(KG): Oh, God, okay.
     (n.C)
(JB): Awesome... is he gone?

   Amaj7                       Dmaj7
Al-right, emergency meeting of Parliament.
          Amaj7
All right Parliament, I know this is fucked up,
Dmaj7                  Amaj7
 But Rage, he can't be king any more.
       Dmaj7                     Amaj7
Dudes, he's encroaching on my de-crees!
                          Dmaj7
Seriously, let's make him Duke, a kick ass Duke.
F#m                          G
 Or leader formerly known as king, but... uh-oh, he's comin' back...

      E7                   (n.C)                          Amaj7
We'll lead as two kings, oh yes, we'll really lead as two kings.

(JB): Rage.
             Dmaj7
(KG): I went all over Idaho...
(JB): Yeah?
                             Amaj7
(KG): Uh, plenty of potatoes everywhere.
(JB): What? There was no famine?
                                 Dmaj7

(JB): A toast...
        Amaj7
(KG): A toast...
                      Dmaj7
(JB): Long live the D.
(KG): Long live the D.
      Amaj7        Dmaj7                       F#m
(JB): Long live me. I'm sorry; I poisoned your wine.
