...THE MEANING OF LIFE... by Monty Python
-------------------------................

*from 'Monty Python Sings' (1989)*


Intro:

D7

Verse 1:

           G                       Gmaj7
Why are we here? What's life all a-bout?
              G7                     C
Is God really real? Or is there some doubt?
         Cm                    G7   F#7 F7  E7
Well, to-night, we're going to sort it  all out;
       Am               D7         G (n.C)
For to-night, it's 'The Meaning of Life'.

Verse 2:

           G                  Gmaj7
What's the point, of all this hoax?
          G7                                    C
Is it the chicken and the egg time? Are we just yolks?
        Cm                      G7    F#7 F7  E7
Or, per-haps, we're just one of God's lit-tle jokes;
      Am            D7         G  (n.C)
Well, ça c'est; le 'Meaning of Life'.

Chorus 1:

   C                          G           G7
Is life just a game, where me make up the rules,
            D7                         G    G/F#  Em  G/B
While we're searching for something to say?
   C                  G         E7             A7
Or are we just simply spiraling coils, of self-replicating DNA?
D7                              Daug
 (Nay, nay, nay, nay, nay, nay, nay, nay, nay, nay, nay, nay).

Verse 3:

         G                  Gmaj7
In this 'life'; what is our fate?
         G7                     C
Is there Heaven and Hell? Do we reincarnate?
             Cm          G7 F#7 F7  E7
Is mankind e-volving, or is it  too late?
         Am                 D7         G (n.C)
Well, to-night; here's 'The Meaning of Life'.

Chorus 2:

    C                          G           G7
For millions, this 'life' is a sad vale of tears;
         D7                     G   G/F#  Em  G/B
Sitting 'round, with nothing to say.
          C
While the scientists say;
                  G         E7             A7
We're just simply spiraling coils, of self-replicating DNA.
D7                              Daug
 (Nay, nay, nay, nay, nay, nay, nay, nay, nay, nay, nay, nay).

Verse 4:

         G               Gmaj7
So, just why? Why are we here?
         G7                           C
And just what, what, what, what do we fear?
         Cm                          G7  F#7 F7   E7
Well, ce soir, for a change; it will all be  made clear;
    Am            D7         G     E7
For this, is 'The Meaning of Life', c'est le sens, de la vie,
Am            D7         G
 This is 'The Meaning of Life'.

This is great thanks.

Also I find if you transpose this up a whole tone it makes it very easy to do the 12-bar bass run on the verse
