O Children by Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds
From The Album Lyre of Orpheus


Intro
Dm / F / Dm / C G


Verse 1:						
Dm
   Pass me that lovely little gun
F
   My dear, my darling one		
Dm
   The cleaners are coming, one by one
C            G                   
   You don't even want to let them start

Bridge:
Dm / F / Dm / C G

Verse 2:
Dm
   They are knocking now upon your door			
F
   They measure the room, they know the score		
Dm
   They're mopping up the butcher's floor			
C                 G
   Of your broken little hearts				

Chorus 1:
Dm    F    Dm   C    G
Oooo-oooo-oooo-oooo children						

Verse 3:
Dm
   Forgive us now for what we've done			
F
   It started out as a bit of fun				
Dm
   Here, take these before we run away			
C           G        
   The keys to the gulag					

Chorus 2:
Dm        Fmaj7
   Oooo children						
C               G                      Dm
   Lift up your voice, lift up your voice			
Fmaj7
   Children
C     G        Dm    F    Dm     C  G
   Rejoice, rejoice	

Bridge:
Dm / F / Dm / C G				

Verse 4:
Here comes Frank and poor old Jim			
They're gathering round with all my friends		
We're older now, the light is dim			
And you are only just beginning				

Chorus 1:
Oooo-oooo-oooo-oooo children						

Verse 5:
We have the answer to all your fears			
It's short, it's simple, it's crystal clear		
It's round about, it's somewhere here			
Lost amongst our winnings				

Chorus 2:
Oooo children						
Lift up your voice, lift up your voice			
Children						
Rejoice, rejoice					

Verse 6:
The cleaners have done their job on you			
They're hip to it, man, they're in the groove		
They've hosed you down, you're good as new		
They're lining up to inspect you			

Chorus 1:
Oooo-oooo-oooo-oooo children						

Verse 7:
Poor old Jim's white as a ghost				
He's found the answer that was lost			
We're all weeping now, weeping because			
There ain't nothing we can do to protect you		

Chorus 2:
Oooo children						
Lift up your voice, lift up your voice			
Children						
Rejoice, rejoice					

Verse 8:
Hey little train! We are all jumping on		
The train that goes to the Kingdom			
We're happy, Ma, we're having fun			
And the train ain't even left the station		

Verse 9:
Hey little train! Wait for me!			
I once was blind but now I see				
Have you left a seat for me?				
Is that such a stretch of the imagination?		

Verse 10:
Hey little train! Wait for me!			
I was held in chains but now I'm free			
I'm hanging in there, don't you see			
In this process of elimination				

Verse 11:
Hey little train! We are all jumping on		
The train that goes to the Kingdom			
We're happy, Ma, we're having fun			
It's beyond my wildest expectation			

Verse 12:
Hey little train! We are all jumping on		
The train that goes to the Kingdom			
We're happy, Ma, we're having fun		
And the train ain't even left the station	(Fade Out)
