(spoken: one, two) F  G

Am                            F7
Back then, long time ago when grass was green
Am  Am/B C  D7 B                 C            Am  F#dim  G#dim
woke  up in a  daze arrived like strangers in the night
Bb9-5                         C    C/B
fab, long time ago when we was fab,
Bb7 F                         C              F  G
fab, back when income tax was all we had.

Am                          F7
Caresses fleeced you in the morning light,
Am Am/B C  D7 B                   C   Am F#dim  G#dim
casualties at dawn, and we did it all.
Bb9-5                          C
Fab, long time ago when we was fab,
Bb7 F                           C
fab, you're my world you are my only love.

F                Dm      G
And while you're in this world
F              Dm       G     C
the fuzz gonna come and claim you
F               Dm     G
but you're more better wise
F                   Dm       G         C
when the buzz gonna come and take you away,
Cm        Fm C   Cm  F         Ab6  C   F G
take you away,       take you away.

Am                        F7
The microscopes that magnified the tears
Am  Am/B C    D7  B                          C  Am  F#dim  G#dim
studied warts and all, still the life flowed on and on
Bb9-5                          C    C/B
fab, long time ago when we was fab,
Bb7 F                       C
fab, but it's all over now, baby blue,
Bb9-5                          C    C/B
fab, long time ago when we was fab,
Bb7 F                       C
fab, like this pullover you sent to me.
Bb9-5                          C    C/B
Fab,
Bb7 F                       C
     and you really got a hold on me.

Fab, long time ago when we was fab.

It is a BIG BIG irony...plus sarcasm.
If you do not know who is related to this song...you wont get it!
