                ...CITY HALL... by Tenacious D
---------------...............

*from 'Tenacious D' (2001)*


Verse 1:

E                  B
 All you people up there, in City Hall;
E                             B
 You're f**kin' it up for the people that's in the streets.
E
 This is a song for the people,
       B
In the streets; not the people, City Hall.

Bridge 1:

G#   A   G#  A   G#   A    G# A   G#
 All you mot-her-f**k-ers, in the streets;
A     G#   A  G#   A   G#  A   G#
 It's time to rise up, up, up, up,
     G#    A        G#  A       G#
Come along children and f**kin' rise!

Interlude: (Faster Tempo)

A, F  G (x4)

Chorus 1:

A                    F        G
 Lots of times, when me and K-G are watchin';
A                     F            G            A
 All the f**kin' sh*t that's going down at City Hall.
F           G                 A
 We get the feeling we should f**k sh*t up,
                F               G
Yeah, we should f**kin' start a riot.

A  F  G     A  F  G
    A riot!

Chorus 2:

                             A
We have 'em screaming in the streets,
F            G            A
 We have 'em tippin' over sh*t,
                     F          G             A
And breakin' f**kin' windows of small busines-ses,
                    F     G
And settin' f**kin' fires!
A                    F     G
 And settin' f**kin' fires!
A                    F     G
 And settin' f**kin' fires!

Interlude:

A, F  G (x4)

Middle 8: (Slower Tempo)

A                            Amaj7
 And then after the smoke is cleared,
        A7
And the rubble has been swept away,
D                            Dm
 Me and KG will peek out our heads.
           A
We've been watching the riots on a monitor,
Dm                                E7
 Twenty floors below sea level... from a bunker.

A                        Amaj7                          A7
 We did it Rage-Kage; we beat the bastards of City Hall!
D                             Dm
 Hahaha! But now what will we do?
A
 We must rebuild.
    Dm                                         E7
But who will lead us in the rebuilding process?

A                                              Amaj7
 Man, it's got to be someone with the know-how,
                        A7
And the elbow grease to lead us to a new land.
D
 No, not me and KG, we don't have,
    F#m                          G
The cognitive capacity to lead... alright, we'll do it!

      E7                  (n.C)              Amaj7
We'll lead as two kings... we'll lead as two kings.
    Dmaj7                                Amaj7
Aah-haa... (two kings, we'll lead as two kings).
         Dmaj7                  Amaj7
Ah-ha ah-how, we'll lead as two kings.

    Amaj7              Dmaj7
The first decree is to legalize Marijuana.
    Amaj7                                  Dmaj7
The tyranny and the bullsh*t's gone on too long.
                           F#m
You old f**kin' shrivs who blocked it's legalization;
       G
You're banished, from the land!

      E7                  (n.C)              Amaj7
We'll lead as two kings... we'll lead as two kings.
    Dmaj7                                Amaj7
Aah-haa... (two kings, we'll lead as two kings).
         Dmaj7                  Amaj7
Ah-ha ah-how, we'll lead as two kings.

Amaj7              Dmaj7              Amaj7
 The second decree; no more pollution,
                        Dmaj7
No more car exhaust, or ocean dumpage.
F#m                             G
 From now on, we will travel in tubes!

      E7                  (n.C)                      Amaj7
We'll lead as two kings... we'll f**kin' lead as two kings.

        Dmaj7                               Amaj7
Get the scientists working on the tube tech-nology, immediately.
           Dmaj7
(Tube tech-nology). Chop, chop, let's go.

             Amaj7     Dmaj7             Amaj7
Third decree; no more... rich people and poor people.
                                F#m
G
 Umm, I dunno, I gotta think about that...

      E7                  (n.C)              Amaj7
We'll lead as two kings... we'll lead as two kings.

      Dmaj7                                Amaj7
Ha-ha-ho-hee, ha-ha-ho-hee, ha-ha-ho-ho-ho-ho.

            Dmaj7
(JB): Oh my God.
(KG): Aah... what?
                             Amaj7

      Amaj7  Dmaj7
(JB): What?!  No! No f**king way!
(KG): What?
      F#m
(JB): Rage, there's a potato famine in Idaho, you gotta go down there!
G
 (JB): Dude, I gotta stay here!
(KG): Why do I have to go?
E7
 (JB): Please! Please!
(KG): Oh, God, okay.
     (n.C)
(JB): Awesome... is he gone?

   Amaj7                       Dmaj7
Al-right, emergency meeting of Parliament.
          Amaj7
All right Parliament, I know this is f**ked up,
Dmaj7                  Amaj7
 But Rage, he can't be king any more.
       Dmaj7                     Amaj7
Dudes, he's encroaching on my de-crees!
                          Dmaj7
Seriously, let's make him Duke, a kick ass Duke.
F#m                          G
 Or leader formerly known as king, but... uh-oh, he's comin' back...

      E7                   (n.C)                          Amaj7
We'll lead as two kings, oh yes, we'll really lead as two kings.

(JB): Rage.
             Dmaj7
(KG): I went all over Idaho...
