"The Origin of Love" by Hedwig and the Angry Inch (from the movie) Tabbed by Aaron (it's acoustic) D D/B Aadd9 G G/D G6 G D When the earth was still flat D/B And the clouds made of fire Aadd9 And mountains stretched up to the sky G Sometimes higher G Folks roamed the earth like big rolling kegs D They had two sets of arms, they had two sets of legs F#m The had two faces peering out of one giant head Em So they could watch all around them A As they talked while they read G A D And they never knew nothing of love G A D G It was before... the origin of love D G The origin of love Bm And there were three sexes then, One that looked like two men Glued up back to back, G Called the children of the sun. D And similar in shape and girth were the children of the earth. D G They looked like two girls rolled up in one. A And the children of the moon Bm Were like a fork shoved on a spoon. C#m They were part sun, part earth A Part daughter, part son. D G D G The origin of love D Now the gods grew quite scared D/B Of our strength and defiance G G And Thor said, "I'm gonna kill them all with my hammer, G G Like I killed the giants." G And Zeus said, "No,you better let me D Use my lightening, like scissors, D D Like I cut the legs off the whales, dinosaurs and the lizards." F#m Then he grabbed up some bolts G And he let out a laugh, Em Said, "I'll split them right down the middle. A Gonna cut 'em right up in half." G A D And then storm clouds gathered above G Into great balls of fire Bm And then fire shot down from the sky in bolts G Like shining blades of a knife. Bm And it ripped right through the flesh G Of the children of the sun And the moon And the earth. Bm And some Indian god sewed the wound up into a hole G Pulled it round to our belly to remind us of the price we pay. Bm And Osiris and the gods of the Nile G Gathered up a big storm Em To blow a hurricane, Bm To scatter us away, G In a flood of wind and rain, Em And a sea of tidal waves, Bm To wash us all away, G And if we don't behave Em They'll cut us down again Ab G And we'll be hopping round on one foot D G And looking through one eye. D Em G D Last time I saw you Bm We had just split in two. G You were looking at me. A I was looking at you. D You had a way so familiar, Bm But I could not recognize, G 'Cause you had blood on your face; A I had blood in my eyes. D But I swear by your expression Bm That the pain down in your soul G A Was the same as the one down in mine. D That's the pain, Bm G Cuts a straight line down through the heart; A We call it love. D We wrapped our arms around each other, Bm Trying to shove ourselves back together. G We were making love, A Making love. D Bm It was a cold dark evening, such a long time ago, G A When by the mighty hand of Jove, D Bm It was a sad story how we became lonely two-legged creatures, G A It's the story of the origin of love. D G D G D G That's the origin of love.
