Oxford Comma Tab
Oxford Comma
by Vampire Weekend

There isn't any guitar in the verse or pre-chorus, so you either stand around for ages 
sing instead.
To get the rhythm for the solo right just listen to the song n u'll get it.
During the Chorus strum power chords over the top. Tabbing towards the end btw.

Lyrics/Chords

Verse:
G
Who gives a fuck about an Oxford comma?
D                              G          D
I've seen those English dramas too, They're cruel
G                           D
So if there's any other way To spell the word
               G        D
It's fine with me, with me

Pre-Chorus:
C                      D
Why would you speak to me that way
G                 D
Especially when I always said that I
C               D
Haven't got the words for you
G                D
All your diction dripping with disdain
C                  D
Through the pain I always tell the truth

Verse:
G
Who gives a fuck about an Oxford comma?
D                       G   D
I climbed to Dharamsala too I did
G
I met the highest lama
D                       G      D
His accent sounded fine to me, to me

Pre-Chorus:
C                   D
Check your handbook It's no trick
G                  D
Take the chapstick Put it on your lips
C             D
Crack a smile Adjust my tie
G                    D
Know your boyfriend, unlike other guys

Chorus:
C                       D
Why would you lie about how much coal you have?
G                       Am
Why would you lie about something dumb like that?
C                       D
Why would you lie about anything at all?
G                 Am
First the window, then it's to the wall
C            D                G
Lil' Jon, he always tells the truth
