Artist: They Might Be Giants
Song: Certain People I Could Name
Album: Long Tall Weekend
D A D A D A D A
The few surviving samurai survey the battlefield
D A D A D A D A
Count the arms, the legs and heads and then divide by 5
G G G G D A D A
Drenched in blood they move across the screen
G G G G Em Em A
Do I need to point or do you see the one I mean
A D D G
The one in back, the way he acts
G G G Em A D
Is he reminding you of anyone we know
D G G Em A D
Isn't he so like certain people I could name
Fill: Bm E A D G C# F#
Halfway through the thirty minutes
Halfway `round the world
Here's the story on the genocidal overlord
in her palace with her epaulettes
Watch her little gestures as she lights her cigarette
Look at her you must see it too
Is she reminding you of anyone we know?
Isn't she so like certain people I could name?
Fill: Bm E A D G C# F# (x2 slightly different scond time )
Disembodied and detached
A voice describes the scene
As a lizard stalks a helpless creature on tv
The music underscores the tragedy
Eyes with no expression watch the unsuspecting prey
Who is it like?
Doesn't it strike you as the very image of someone we know?
Isn't it so like certain people
How could anybody miss the obvious and the uncanny and the clear resemblance?
Isn't it just like certain people I could name?
Outro: Bm E A D G C# F#
