 A (x8)   C (x8)

 A (x8)                            C (x8)
 How long have we known each other now?    Five, ten years, and I

 A (x4)               C (x4)
 guess we've changed,   and we'd

 A (x4)                     C (x4)
 run into each other in the subterranean

 D (x8)
 world...     With the extras in their fright wigs and fins

 F (x8)
 on their way from funkhole to dugout...       and

 D (x8)
 one night would keel over into another,
 and there never would seem to be a day,  and

 F (x8)
 hey, you used to say you were polishing up on your survival tactics

 D (x8)
 (techinques) for the end of the world...      and

 C (x4)                      A# (x4)
 you, you used to dig your beak into my ear and say "nothing"

 F (x4)             A# (x4)
 like a secret...

 D(Gbass) (x4)    C(Fbass) (x4)     D(Gbass) (x4)   C(Fbass) (x4)
 How long have we known each other now?   Fifteen, twenty years maybe, and

 C (x4)                     A# (x4)
 certainly we've changed...         and we'd

 C (x4)                     A# (x4)
 run into each other in the subterranean

 D (x8)
 world...

 C (x8)
 And before I knew you or before we met
 oh yes, way before then I was

 D (x8)
 itching in the cradle, making my way to the slime pits & the sludge traps

 F (x8)
 looking for love...    and

 D (x8)
 all the bushy brats turned out from the western burgs

 C (x8)
 minced in the powdermills,   noctambulating around

 D (x8)
 nowheresville

 D (x8)
 and some were so desperate for sleep the only retreat was the

 C (x4)                          A# (x4)             F (x4)   A# (x4)
 sad dormitory... yes, one would go for a rest (or a test?)

 D(Gbass) (x4)    C(Fbass) (x4)     D(Gbass) (x4)           C(Fbass) (x4)
 How long have we known each other now?   up to thirty years I guess, and

 C (x4)                     A# (x4)
 maybe we've changed...         and

 C (x4)                          A# (x4)
 didn't we see each other in the subterranean

 D (x8)
 world?

 F (x8)
 You, did you really have your headress?  -  Hmmm.... yes
 I used to dress up

 D (x8)
 like a girl, and how did you ever make it back home?  I... I...

 F (x8)
 I'd leave a trail of pearls.  Did you ever see a doctor - or a priest?

 D (x8)
 oh yeah - a priest

 D (x8)
 do you remember the guy with the sign "the end is nigh"?    That was

 F (x8)
 me (do you remember what was written on the back?)

 D (x8)
                and
 F (x8)
 Do remember the guy with a boxful of wind?  or maybe it was a cassette

 D (x8)
 I don't really... I don't know either - or was it me?

 C (x4)  A# (x4)  F (x4)  A# (x4)

 D (x8)                            F (x8)
 How long have we known each other now?   I've never seen you in my life
                                                          (forty years?)
 D (x8)                            F (x8)
 How long have we known each other now?   I've never seen you in my life
                                                           (fifty years)
 C (x8)                            A# (x8)
 How long have we known each other now?   I've never seen you in my life
                                     (sixty, seventy, eighty three years)

 C (x4)                     A# (x4)
 I hope that we've changed...         and

 C (x4)                             A# (x4)
 we've never seen each other in the subterranean

 A (x8)     C (x8)    D (finish)
 life...
