Mau Mau (Amerikon)
from Blows Against the Empire (1970)

Yeah, I know it's labeled as being by Jefferson Starship but the rendition of JS on 
Against the Empire is much closer to the Airplane and had very little to do with JS other 
Kantner himself.
Anywho, it's a great song in E minor, Paul Kantner played the rhythm part and Peter 
played the lead guitar and he solos in E minor pentatonic throughout the song. I put the 
at the bottom so there's no confusion between the 2 different G chords used in the song.

Dm                            F   Dm
Put your old ladies back into bed
                             F    Dm
Put your old men into their graves
                         F     Dm
Cover their ears so they can't hear us sing
                         F     Dm
Cover their eyes so they can't see us play
F
Get out of the way
        Dm
Let the people play
            Em          F
We're gonna get down on you
F              Dm
Come alive all over you
                            F Dm
Dancin' down into your town

Dm                                 F     Dm
You know Tyrannosaurus Rex was destroyed before
                            F       Dm
By a furry little ball that crawled along
The primeval jungle floor
   F                     Dm
He stole the eggs of the dinosaur
F
close your eyes & create the sound
Dm
open your hands & rebuild the ground
Em                    F
We are egg snatchers, egg snatchers
F
flashin' sunshine children
Dm                       F Dm
Bunch of diamond thieves

Dm
You unleash the dogs
     F     Dm           F  Dm
of a grade-B movie star governor's war
          F
While you sit in the dark -
  Dm                    F Dm
insane with the fear of dying
Dm
we’ll ball in your parks
  F                      Dm
Insane with the flash of living

F
I’m alive, I am human
Dm               Em
i will be alive again
   F
So drop your fuckin' bombs
F
Burn your demon babies
Dm
I will be again
Dm         F Dm
Rabid lover
                           F   Dm
feelin' the starch in your grin

Callin' for acid cocaine and grass
                            F  Dm
And receiving your homemade gin

Dm           F  Dm
Push the button
               F Dm
pull the switch
             F Dm
cut the beam
                   F Dm
c'mon make it march
Sign me up as a diplomat - my only office is the park

Dm             F      Dm           F*
You need to be out before you come in
Dm        F        Dm  F*
After you come you go
Dm              F         Dm              F*
In the midst of Yang is a smaller part of Yin
Dm          F           Dm   F*
And when it happens you know
Dm
the dawn comes

Hey, dick!
Dm
Whatever you think of us is totally irrelevant
Dm
Both to us now and to you
Dm
We are the present
Dm
We are the future
Dm
You are the past
Dm       F            Dm
Pay your dues and get outta the way
            Dm      F       Dm
Cause we're not the way you used to be


     F        F    Em
When you were very young

Dm
We're something new
We don't quite know what it is
Or particularly care
We just do it - You gotta do it
Let the music do it, take you there
Do it, do it, do it - gotta do it
Something new, something new, something new
New, New

Dm
Open your eyes there's a new world a-comin'
Open your eyes there's a new world today
Open your hearts people are lovin'

Open it all we've come to stay

Dm
I said, Open it all we've come to stay

Then play around with this riff:

e|---------------------------|
B|---------------------------|
G|---------------------------|
D|---------------------------|
A|--5-777-5-777-7070-7070----|
E|---------------------------|
Just mess around the E note and throw in some D’s and A’s.

Dm
I said, Open it all we've come to stay
People, hey you people, everybody
Us young people come to stay
I said, people, on relief
We've all come to stay

F         Dm             F           Dm
Open your eyes there's a new world a-comin'
F                 Dm
Open it all we've come to stay
Dm
Yeah, yeah, yeah, open it all

Open it, open it, baby
NOW OPEN THAT DOOR.
