Here is one of the new songs on the Barenaked Ladies CD; Disc 1: Their greatest
hits 1991-2000. Really cool song; no capo & standard tuning. I'm pretty sure for
this one, but any corrections are welcome ! davidbarrette@videotron.ca

Intro
-----

Em7, Cm9, Dsus, Gadd9 [x4]

VERSE 1
-------

 Em7  Cm9  Dsus Gadd9 
I'm learning
 Em7  Cm9  Dsus Gadd9 
I'm yearning
 Em7  Cm9     B7      Esus
I'm burning all your stuff
    Am          D
But that's not enough

 Em7  Cm9  Dsus Gadd9 
I'm faking
 Em7  Cm9  Dsus Gadd9 
That I'm aching
 Em7  Cm9  B7      Esus 
Mistaking lust for love

CHORUS
------

Am              D
Thanks that was fun
       G           Cm9  Em7
Don't forget, no regrets
Am           D
Except maybe one

VERSE 2
-------

 Em7  Cm9  Dsus Gadd9
Did I scare you?
 Em7  Cm9  Dsus Gadd9
When I dared you
 Em7  Cm9    B7     Esus
I stared you in the eye
     Am         D
And told you goodbye
 Em7  Cm9  Dsus Gadd9
You mocked me
 Em7  Cm9  Dsus Gadd9
It shocked me
 Em7  Cm9          B7     Esus
When you walked me to the bus

CHORUS
------

Am              D
Thanks that was fun
       G           Cm9  Em7
Don't forget, no regrets
Am           D
Except maybe one
        G           Cm9  Em7
Made a deal, not to feel
 Am
God that's dumb

BRIDGE
------

 G        Em7       Dsus      Gadd9
Everybody knows the deal fell through
 G          Em7      Dsus      Gadd9
I was hoping I could just blame you
 G              Em7   Dsus   Gadd9
When was it that I became so soft?
     G              Cadd9
This sentimentality doesn't look good on me
G                           Cadd9
I thought that you would be begging to be with me
G                            Cadd9
But I'm the one on my knees, blubbering
              B7   Esus
Please let me stay

(Slience)
Deflated
And jaded
                   Esus
I hate it when you call
Am             D
Which isn't at all 

VERSE 3
-------

Em7  Cm9  Dsus Gadd9
I've spoken
Em7  Cm9  Dsus Gadd9
Though broken
Em7  Cm9       B7    Esus
Here's a token of my love

CHORUS
------

Am              D
Thanks that was fun
       G           Cm9  Em7
Don't forget, no regrets
Am           D
Except maybe one
        G           Cm9  Em7
Made a deal, not to feel
 Am          D
God that was dumb
         G          Cm9  Em7
Don't forget, no regrets
Am           D
Except maybe one
       G           Cm9  Em7
Made a deal not to feel
Am               D
Thanks, that was fun

OUTRO
-----

G, Gadd9, Em7, Cm9, Em7, Dsus, D, G

Like most of BNL songs, the outro is a wild one. Let the G ring at the end.

The only two problems with this tab are instead of the Esus, there should be an A7 (002020) everywhere you noted an Esus, and the outro is just G Cadd9 G Am D (x3) end on G. Apart from that, this is really accurate.

i agree about the A7 but the tab is amazing

It's great but in the second half of the bridge, the Cm9 should should switch with the G, and the bridge should end with B7 A7 Am D.
