(*im gonna rock you like a baby…)

(yeah I kinda made up that G# chord, but it sounds great and music is a creation, so f-you)
(sometimes I just use the bottom strings of the A# to give it a strong base feel)

(*oh graces…..oh grace)   ….back to the beginning of the verse, then the end of the world

And that’s pretty much all of it,  throw the stuff around, add some twists is you like,
autonomy, be creative, and be a musician. The end….

(Ahem) Id like to thank the Academy…
