Tabbed by David Bédard-Barrette, McGill University, Canada, March 2004

This song is the first single out of the Everything to Everyone CD. If you like
chimps, this is your song! I agree that this is not the best song to play all
by yourself, but if you're a hardcore BNL fan like me, every song is fun to
play at the guitar ! 

No capo and standard tuning. Any corrections are welcome !

Intro
-----

[C#m, A, F#m, B] x 2

C#m, A, Fm


1st Verse
---------
          Esus4                        
You can't imagine so many monkeys in the daily mail

All of them coming anonymously so they leave no trail
        Esus4
I never thought I'd have an admirer from overseas

But someone is sending me stationary filled with chimpanzees.

 
2nd Verse  (you can choose to palm mute those chords if you want)
---------
               E                          Asus2
Some chimps in swimsuits, some chimps are swinging from a vine
               E                           Asus2
Some chimps in jackboots, some chimps that wish they could be mine.
            E                           Asus2
Starsky and Hutch chimps, a chimp who's sitting on the can
          E                           Asus2
A pair of Dutch chimps who send their love from Amsterdam.

 
Chorus
------
        E             Asus2  Bsus4  Asus2
Another postcard with chimpanzees
          E         Asus2     Bsus4  Asus2
And every one is addressed to me.
       E             Asus2  Bsus4  Asus2
Another postcard with chimpanzees
          E         Asus2     Bsus4  Asus2
And every one is addressed to me.

 
3rd Verse
---------
            Esus4
If I had to guess, I'd say the monkey-sender thinks it's great

He's sending me, maybe she's sending me just to see me get irate
           Esus4
I'm losing sleep - and it's gonna be keeping me up all night

I thought it was funny, but now I've got money on a monkey fight.


4th Verse (you can choose to palm mute those chords if you want)
---------
               E                           Asus2
Some chimps in hard hats, chimps a-working on a chain gang
                E                         Asus2
Some chimps who love cats, burning rubber in a Mustang
           E                         Asus2
A birthday-wishing chimp, a chimp in black like a goth
        E                        Asus2
A goin' fishin' chimp, a British chimp in the bath.


Chorus
------
        E             Asus2  Bsus4  Asus2
Another postcard with chimpanzees
          E         Asus2     Bsus4  Asus2
And every one is addressed to me.
       E             Asus2  Bsus4  Asus2
Another postcard with chimpanzees
          E         Asus2     Bsus4  Asus2
And every one is addressed to me.


5th Verse
---------
             Esus4
Somehow they followed me even though I packed and moved my home

No matter what, they come and they come they won't leave me alone
        Esus4
Another monkey in the mail could make me lose my mind

But look at me shuffling through the stack until I finally find


Bridge
------
               E E
Some chimps in swimsuits
               
Some chimps in Jackboots
               E E
Some chimps in hard hats

Some chimps who love cats
              E E
I've got some shaved chimps; that's chimps devoid of any hair
         E E
I've got depraved chimps dressed up in women's underwear.
         C#m          A      F#m   B
Another postcard with chimpanzees
          C#m      A          F#m  B
And every one is addressed to me.
C#m           A             F#m            B
Every one is, every one is, every one is addressed to me.
C#m           A             F#m
Every one is, every one is, every one is addressed to me.

 
Chorus
------
        E             Asus2  Bsus4  Asus2
Another postcard with chimpanzees
          E         Asus2     Bsus4  Asus2
And every one is addressed to me.
       E             Asus2  Bsus4  Asus2
Another postcard with chimpanzees
          E         Asus2     Bsus4  Asus2
And every one is addressed to me.
        E             Asus2  Bsus4  Asus2

          E         Asus2     Bsus4  Asus2
And every one is addressed to me.
       E             Asus2  Bsus4  Asus2

Where you wrote in a B chord, it's actually a Gmaj chord. Apart from that it's pretty close.

na the b is good for me, and instead of the F#m you can just hold the asus and just hit the F# on the E string it goes good on a acoustic
