                 ELF'S LAMENT - Barenaked Ladies (Ft. Micheal Bublé)

Standard Tuning, Capo on 2nd fret

Last christmas song, I swear.

Intro:
Dm7   G7    C   Am7
Dm7   G7    C   C7

Verse 1:
Dm7/C        G/D              C/E          Am/C
I'm a man of reason, and they say 'tis the season
       Dm7/C           G/D             C/E            E/B
To be jolly, but it's folly when you volley for position
Dm7         G7                  C           Am7
Never in existence has there been such a resistance
     Dm7             G7                   C                   E7
To ideas meant to free us, if you could see us then you'd listen
Dm7                  G7             C              Am7
Toiling through the ages making toys on garnished wages
            Dm7                 G7               C             E7
There's no union, we're only through when we outdo the competition

Chorus:
Dm7  G7   C                  C7
I   make  toys but I've got aspirations
Dm7   G7    C               C7
Make some noise, use your imagination
Dm7   G7   C                 C7
Girls and boys, before you wish for
           Dm7                G7
What you wish for, there's a list for who's been
Dsus2      Cadd9        G/B       G           C  Csus4  C  N.C.
Naughty or nice, but consider the price to an elf

Verse 2:
  Dm7               G7           C               Am7
A full indentured servitude can reflect on one's attitude
    Dm7            G7                   C               E7
But that silly red hat just makes the fat man look outrageous
  Dm7                G7                  C                   Am7
Absurd though it may seem, you know I've heard there's even been
         Dm7                      G7             C                  E7
Illegal doping, and though we're coping, I just hope it's not contagious
    Dm7             G7                  C             Am7
You try to start a movement and you think you see improvement
            Dm7            G7              C               E7
But when thrown into the moment, we just don't seem so courageous

Chorus:
Dm7  G7   C                  C7
I   make  toys but I've got aspirations
Dm7   G7    C               C7
Make some noise, use your imagination
Dm7   G7   C                 C7
Girls and boys, before you wish for
           Dm7                G7
What you wish for, there's a list for who's been
Dsus2      Cadd9        G/B       G           Cadd9
Naughty or nice, but consider the price to an elf

Bridge:
                   G6/B
You look at yourself, you're an elf
            A#6b5                 A7sus4           Fmaj13
And the shelf is just filled with disappointing memories
Cadd9               G6/B                        A#6b5
  Trends come and go, and your friends wanna know
                     A7sus4        Fmaj13         Em7
Why you aren't just happy making crappy little gizmos
     Dm                         G               Csus4  C  N.C.
Every kid knows they'll just throw this stuff away

Verse 3:
      Dm7          G7             C         Am7
We're used to repetition so we drew up a petition
        Dm7              G7                C              E7
We the undersigned feel undermined, let's redefine employment
   Dm7                   G7                C                  Am7
We know that we've got leverage, so we'll hand the fat man a beverage
           Dm7             G7              C               E7
He'll sit back while we attack the utter lack of our enjoyment
   Dm7                G7              C                    Am7
It may be tough to swallow, but our threats are far from hollow
          Dm7                G7           C   N.C.              E7
He may thunder, but if he blunders he may wonder where the toys went

Chorus:
Dm7  G7   C                  C7
I   make  toys but I've got aspirations
Dm7   G7    C               C7
Make some noise, use your imagination
Dm7   G7   C                 C7
Girls and boys, before you wish for
           Dm7                G7
What you wish for, there's a list for who's been
Dsus2      Cadd9        G/B       G
Naughty or nice, but consider the price
Dsus2      Cadd9        G/B       G
Naughty or nice, but consider the price
Dsus2      Cadd9        G/B       G     N.C.     C7
Naughty or nice, but consider the price to an elf

About the artist behind Elfs Lament Chords:

Barenaked Ladies (often abbreviated BNL or occasionally BnL) is a Juno-winning and Grammy-nominated Canadian alternative rock band. The band is composed of Jim Creeggan, Kevin Hearn, Steven Page, Ed Robertson, Tyler Stewart, and formerly Andy Creeggan. They formed in 1988 in Scarborough, Ontario, at the time a suburb of Toronto.[1] They are best known for their hit singles, "One Week", "Pinch Me", "If I Had $1000000" and "Brian Wilson"[1] and for their light-hearted, comedic performance style. The band's trademark at live shows is humorous banter between songs, and improvised raps/songs, both of which are staples at virtually every concert.[2]
