                             ANONANIMAL  -- Andrew Bird
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: AwesomePants
Email: xander.madsen@gmail.com

Tuning: Standard

I hadn't found the chords anywhere before and decided to figure it out.
Surprisingly easy for such a masterpiece of a song.

  ---Chords---
 Em      022000
 G       320033
 Cmaj7   x32000   //Cmaj7 can easily be livened up by tossing your pinky onto the 
third fret of the high E string
 D       xx0232

Good luck! If you have any questions about it, email me. I'd be glad to respond.
Here goes!


  Em
I see a sea anemone
    G
The enemy
          Cmaj7
See a sea anemone

And that'll be the end of me.
          Em                               G                   Cmaj7
While the vicious fish was caught unawares in the tenderest of tendrils

Underneath her tender gills


Em                 G
I will become this animal
Cmaj7
Perfectly adapted to the music halls
Em                 G
I will become this animal
Cmaj7
Anomalous appendages

A non-animal


G
Hold on just a second
      D
Don't tell me this one you know
  Cmaj7
I know this one I know this song     //This section here is very strange, as far as timing goes.
                                     //You'll want to come in right on the word "tell" for the D
I know this one I love this song     //and right on the word "know" for the 
                                       Cmaj7.  It feels weird at first,
                                     //but once you get it, it'll flow pretty nicely.

G
Hold on just a second
      D
Don't tell me this one you know
  Cmaj7
I know this one I know this song

I know this one I love this song

I know this one


Em G Cmaj7 (x2)


Em
Underneath the stalactites
    G           Cmaj7  
The troglobites lost their sight

Uh oh


Em                      G
The seemingly innocuous plecostomus
       Cmaj7
though posthumus

They talk to us

They talk too much


Em
See a sea anemone
    G
The enemy
          Cmaj7
See a sea anemone

That'll be the end of me
Em

The break w/ weird timing (starts around 2:18) is just in 7/8, easily counted as 1 2 1 2 1 2 3...(at least that's what I do)

Also, the first section of the song (up to the break), while it can work out to 4/4, can also be counted as two 3/4 bars followed by one 2/4 bar...Whichever is easier.

Great tune. Even better live!
