TRA LA LA

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


  INTRO RIFF:  A - Asus4 - A - Aadd9  (twice)


               E
           I.  I will not speak
                          D      A
               unless I'm spoken to.
                      E          D  A
               tra la la, tra la la la.
                        E
               when the wind is weak,
                    D        A
               I am standing still.
                      E          D  A
               tra la la, tra la la la.
                  E
               in dark of night,
                   D             A  (intro riff)
               you won't see me around.


                 E
          II.  I will not sing
                       D      A
               until I have a song.
                      E          D  A
               tra la la, tra la la la.
                 E
               I will not bring
                         D     A
               what does not belong.
                      E          D  A
               tra la la, tra la la la.
               E
               there's enough
                  D              A  (intro riff)
               pollution in this world.


                        Fmaj7(add-5)
      BRIDGE:  too many words
                    G6
               like fugitive birds
                    Cmaj7
               have spoken themselves
                       Aadd9
               with no source.
                    Fmaj7(add-5)
               they smile at the scarecrows
                   G6
               and pile up in silos
                    Cmaj7
               like Weimar money
                           D6add9   A  (intro riff)
               between the wars.


                 E
         III.  I will not rise
                        D         A
               until specifically called.
                      E          D  A
               tra la la, tra la la la.
                 E
               I won't disguise
                  D       A
               my lead as gold.
                      E          D  A
               tra la la, tra la la la.
                     E
               but I want that prize
                   D              A  (intro riff)
               one day before I'm old.


                      E          D  A
      ENDING:  tra la la, tra la la la.
                      E          D  A
               tra la la, tra la la la.
                      E          D  A
               tra la la, tra la la la.
                      E          D (triplet)  A
               tra la la, tra la la---------  la.
