i like the tone of your trumpet
come on let's spill some paint
       D                           Em
let's raise a glass of milk to the end of another day
and to the kiss that's still intangible
the kids are alright just unmanageable
D                          Em             
 they won't do a damn thing that you say

  G   D         Em        C

Verse 2:
      G                         D
your voice is all detached on a radio-wave breeze 
    Em                        C
we have another caller with a bachelor degree
         G                    D
talkin' alien invasion as the only chance for unity
      Em                                        C                      
well sorry to interrupt you caller but that's a physical impossibility

G   D        Em           C
      that's a physical impossibility
G   D        Em           A            D    A   D (listen for timing)
      that's a physical impossibility

           A              D          A               D
you'd be tossed up or washed up the narrator relates 
       A          D           A                     D
in a spartan antarctican can walk for many days
          A            D    A                  D
meet with emperor penguin devotion to the egg
          A              D         A                 D
and their women are swimming from half an ocean away

G  D  Em  C   x2

Verse 3:
G                        D 
don't sound so detached this is you and me
      Em                      C
just give me your opinion before you turn to leave
      G                             D
your crust is just incredible, the radio was edible
             Em                                C
when you said don't wipe your asses with your sleeves

your're a physical impossibility  

G  D              Em           C         
       your're a physical impossibility
                 F               C         G    F
G  D   It was a physical impossibility

Outro Solo:
C   G   F x 7

End on C
