The end of the chorus is played differently all 3 times- that's the deal
with the *.

A#dim is an A# diminished chord consisting of the notes A#, C, and E.
Any chord followed by a slash is the chord name followed by the bass
note.  For example, Bm/A is a Bm chord with an A played on the bass.

"Everything You Know Is Wrong" by Al Yankovic


Intro:
D   C   G/B   A   A7 (hold, then two strummed A7s and straight to verse)


Verse (all verses are the same):

D                    G       A      D
I was driving on the freeway in the fast lane with a

      G     A     A#dim Bm Bm/A      E/G#  E
rabid wolverine in my underwear when suddenly a guy

  A                                    G
behind me in the backseat popped right up and cupped

                    D/F#     D               G
his hands across my eyes.  I guessed, "Is it Uncle

A               D                   G      A
Frank or cousin Louie, is it Bob or Joe or Walter,

A#dim    Bm         Bm/A         E/G#      E
could it be Bill or Jim or Ed or Bernie or Steve,

           A                                A7
I probably would have kept on guessing but about

                              Bm
that time we crashed into the truck, and as I'm

       E7                    A       D/F#
laying bleeding there on the asphalt finally I

G     D       Em         G
recognize the face of my hibachi dealer, who

A         A7/G  A/F#     A/E
takes off his prosthetic lips, and tells me:


Chorus:

D     G        A       D
Everything you know is wrong, black is white,

       G       A    A#dim Bm       Bm/A E/G#
up is down and short is long, and everything

     E               A  A7/G      A/F#    A/E
you thought was just so important doesn't matter,

D    G         A       D
Everything you know is wrong, just forget the

C#sus4    F#m   Bm            Bm/A    E/G#   E
words and sing along, all you need to understand is

G              A       *
everything you know is wrong.


*- First time :  F   G
   Second time:  D
   Third time:

G              A        Bm             C#m
Everything you know is (everything you know is)

G              A       D        D
Everything you know is wrong!  (end)

Whoever you are you did an awesome job. Best chords for a complicated song I've seen in a long time.

This song is surprisingly extremely difficult to play. Anyone wanna make a simplified version?
