[intro]
Am                       F
I am a thoughtful guy; I think about a lot of things
Em                     G
I am a thoughtful guy;  I think a lot of thoughts about a lot of things

[Verse 1]
  Am
I think about space and the vastness of it
  F
I think about cake and how much I love it
  Em
I think about if Wal-Mart is good or evil
  G
I think tattoos are cool... on other people
  Am
I think about the unexplored depths of the ocean
  F
I think about the difference in ointment and lotion
  Em
I think about if I should wax my back
  G
I think a handful of nuts is healthy snack

[Interlude]
Am
I am a thoughtful guy
      F
Right now I'm thinking about the millions of microorganisms living on my body
     Em                
It's like I'm a mothership
G x2
A 100% male mothership

[Verse 2]
  Am
I think about how I could get on the local news
     F
If I strolled into a McDonalds and stripped down nude
  Em
I think about a hotdog while I'm eating it
    G
But then I pause, 'cause I'm thinking about its ingredients
  Am
I think about the first guy who ever shaved
    F
And how many times did he shave before the second guy caved?
  Em                                           G
I think about if a friend were choking on ice

"Just be patient" would the best advice
  Am                                                     F
I think about that moment when I'm drifting off to sleep

And then my body jerks like I'm falling suddenly
  Em
I wonder if that's a defense mechanism for something
                 G
Like when you're sleeping on a cliff, or just top-bunking?
    Am
Sometimes I think how old guys like to whittle
    F
And how if I start now and just whittle a little
             Em
My whittling skills will hone before I get old
         G
And I'll pwn all my friends at the retirement home
  Am
I think of all the places that a penny has been
      F
Like, seriously, think of all the places that a penny's been in
   Em
It could've been in the pocket of the President's suit
         G
But it's probably also been in some toddler's poop
       Am
'cause little kids eat pennies like they're Flintstone Vitamins
  F
Accruing no interest while traveling inside of 'em
   Em
Re-entering circulation might boost the economy
        G
But I'd rather not pay with a penny that's performed a colonoscopy
  Am
I think that our universe is really one of many
     F
With many parallel me's stretching to infinity
Em
Doing activities similarly to me
G
Yet, at the same time, done slightly differently
    Am                                  F
And seemingly, right now, they could be

Thinking this same thought as me
        Em                                               G G
Well, a similar thought, but not the same thought exactly
nc
That's pretty deep

[Interlude]
Am
I am a thoughtful guy
      F
Right now, I'm thinkin about the people who invented words
    Em
Did they just look at stuff and say the first thing that came to their mind?
    G  G   nc
And if so, how do you explain duffel bag?

[Verse 3]
Am                                    F
I think how do I know that you and me

See the same colors the same way when you and me see?
      Em                                             G
Is my red blue for you, or my green your green, too?

Could it be true we see differing hues?
           Am                                        F
And say we do; then how would we discover this fact?

And even if we did, would there even be any impact?
        Em
I don't think this would affect us personally
      G
But I think it would have ripple effects through the interior design industry
  Am
I think about if I was turned into an ant
            F
I'd want my loved ones to know, so I thought of a plan
           Em
I'd gather twigs and leaves and write my name on the ground
         G
Then I'd wait for my family and friends to crowd around
    Am
But now I'm thinking that when they saw it
                 F
They'd think the human me wrote it and an ant was crawling on it
         Em
Then not realizing the ant me was really the real me
     G
In a strange twist of fate I think they'd probably kill me

[Outro]
Am                      F
I - am a thoughtful guy
Em                      G
I - am a thoughtful guy
          Am                                                                   F
And right now, I'm thinking about what if I was abducted by aliens while I had a really bad farmer's tan?
                                                       Em
The aliens might incorrectly conclude that our species was two-toned.
G
That's exactly what I thought.
Am                                    F
And then somehow, through this error, my tan lines saved the human race.
F
I like that thought.
                Em
Yeah, I think a lot of thoughts like that.
G   G
Me, too
