Artist: They Might Be Giants
Song: Metal Detector
Album: Factory Showroom

Intro:   G  C  G  D

Verse 1:
G           C               G                   D                   G  C  G  D
Down at the shore there's a place where there's no one vacationing
                 G            C           G        D
there's just the sound of the call of the wild overcoming the
Em            Ebm
fear of the unknown

Pre Chorus 1:
             C#m     F#m           C#m   F#m
and I've got something to help you understand
          C#m     A       C#m       Ab
something waiting there beneath the sand:
C#m   F#m    C#m    F#m   C#m          F#m        C#m    F#m
  My metal detector         is with me all of the time
E    A     F#m     B        E    A   F#m   B
 I'm the inspector over the mine

Chorus 1:
A
 Look past the volley ball
E
 Look past the squawking gull
Ab           A              A            Ab
  Ignore the mountain of discarded falderal

Pre Chorus:
and I've got something to help you understand
something waiting there beneath the sand:
My metal detector is with me all of the time
I'm the inspector over the mine
E   A    F#m     B        E     A   F#m   B
 Metal detector: watch it shine

Verse 2:
G        C           G        D              G         C  G   D
Every seashell has a story to tell if you're listening
         G           C               G        D
but underneath every shell there's a story as well if you've
Em                  Ebm
heard enough of the sea
G         C             G        D    G        C   G       D
then everything on the top will just suddenly stop seeming interesting
          G          C            G               D
so listen not to the sound of the things that are found underground

Bridge: ( C#m F#m E  A F#m B  E  A  F#m  B ) W/ weird voice sound

Chorus:
Don't need no volley ball
Don't need no squawking gull
Don't need to look at any bathing beauty doll

Pre Chorus :
for I've got something to help you understand
something waiting there beneath the sand:
My metal detector is with me all of the time
I'm the inspector over the mine

Chorus:
Look past the volley ball
Look past the squawking gull
Ignore the mountain of discarded falderal

Pre Chorus:
Cause I've got something to help you understand
something hidden there beneath the sand:
My metal detector is with me all of the time
I'm the inspector over the mine
Metal detector: watch it shine

Chorus:
Don't need no volley ball
Don't need no squawking gull
Metal detector all the time

Ending: C#m
