[Verse 1]

G      A#     G      F   F#

G      A#     G      F   F#

      G        A#      G     F   F#
This one time,
      G                    A#      G     F   F#
I was running through the fields
       G              A#        G     F   F#
When I came across a dead guy
       G              A#      G     F   F#
With a letter in his hand,
      G        A#      G     F   F#
So I scanned it,
               G             A#      G     F   F#
And though the grammar was okay,
           G              A#      G     F   F#
There was such a lack of purpose
             G
That it was difficult to care, but anyway

[Chorus]

A#                    C#       F#       D      G
Hidden in the mess of letters lies the awful truth,
           A#                     A        G
Yeah, that Emma's mum and dad use plastic forks.
      A#                        C#       F#      D     G
Yeah, nothing in this world can take her common shame away,
            A#                       A         
Yeah, 'cause Emma's mum and dad use plastic forks.

[Verse 2]

G      A#     G      F   F#

G      A#     G      F   F#
  
     G     A#     G      F   F#
The next day (about ten o'clock)   
       G              A#     G      F   F#
It was playing on my mind (well, I say it was)
      G             A#      G      F   F#
So I edited it for context (good job)
               G
Till there was nothing fit to print, but anyway

[Chorus 2]

A#                    C#       F#       D      G
Hidden in the mess of letters lies the awful truth,
           A#                     A        G
Yeah, that Emma's mum and dad use plastic forks.
          A#                        C#       F#      D     G
Woah, but nothing in this world can take her common shame away,
            A#                       A         
Yeah, 'cause Emma's mum and dad use plastic forks.

[Bridge]

G                                       G
Maybe it's an old cliche, but sometimes things are better left expected.
G                                        G
You let your manatee down and then you drown: that's just the way with nature.
G                                        G
I've been here once or twice before with better hair, and let me tell you,
G                                     G                                  G
Only the good die young, except for when they don't, it's not exactly fair.

[Outro]

                  A#        A#        A   Ab     G
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, it'll never be a kingdom's share.
                  A#        A#        A   Ab     G
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, it'll never be a kingdom's share.
                  A#        A#        A   Ab     G
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, it'll never be a kingdom's share.
                  A#        A#        A   Ab     G
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, it'll never be a kingdom's share.
