                Particle Man (live acoustic version)
They Might Be Giants


This is a great little tune by They Might Be Giants, but I haven't seen any tabs or chords for it out there, 
so I decided to do it myself :).  
This is my first attempt at doing a song--sorry for any mistakes! (but it sounds pretty close when I play it)
This was done from the live acoustic version on 120 Minutes on MTV, but it shouldn't be too different 


C        
Particle man, particle man

C                G 
Doing the things a particle can

F               C 
What's he like? It's not important

C
Particle man


C            F 
Is he a dot, or is he a speck?

G                         C
When he's underwater does he get wet?

F                     G
Or does the water get him instead?

F             C 
Nobody knows, Particle man


(slight pause while acordian plays--guitar holds out C chord)


C
Triangle man, Triangle man

C                  G
Triangle man hates particle man

F                  C
They have a fight, Triangle wins

C
Triangle man



(bridge with acordian solo--the guitar just plays C for a while, then G then C)



C
Universe man, Universe man

C                  G
Size of the entire universe man

F               C
Usually kind to smaller man

C
Universe man


C                       F
He's got a watch with a minute hand,

G                     C
Millenium hand and an eon hand

F                     G
When they meet it's a happy land

F             C
Powerful man, universe man


(slight pause while acordian plays softly strum C)


C
Person man, person man

C                      G
Hit on the head with a frying pan

F                   C
Lives his life in a garbage can

C
Person man


C               F
Is he a mess or is he depressed?

G                    C
Does he feel totally worthless?

F                G
Who came up with person man?

F             C
Degraded man, person man


(slight pause while acordian plays--guitar holds out C chord)


C
Triangle man, triangle man

C                  G
Triangle man hates person man

F                  C
They have a fight, triangle wins

C
Triangle man


(then the same accordian solo plays twice and the song ends)
