  Em
I see a sea anemone
    G
The enemy
          Cmaj7
See a sea anemone

And that'll be the end of me.
          Em                               G                   Cmaj7
While the vicious fish was caught unawares in the tenderest of tendrils

Underneath her tender gills


Em      G          Cmaj7
I will become this animal
Em         G             Cmaj7
Perfectly adapted to the music halls
Em      G          Cmaj7
I will become this animal
Em           G          
Anomalous appendages

Don't tell me this one you know
  Cmaj7
I know this one I know this song     //This section here is very strange, as far as timing goes.
                                     //You'll want to come in right on the word "tell" for the D
I know this one I love this song     //and right on the word "know" for the 
                                     //Cmaj7.  It feels weird at first,
                                     //but once you get it, it'll flow pretty nicely.

G
Hold on just a second
      D
Don't tell me this one you know
  Cmaj7
I know this one I know this song

I know this one I love this song

I know this one


Em G Cmaj7 (x2)


Em
Underneath the stalactites
    G           Cmaj7  
The troglobites lost their sight

Uh oh


Em                      G
The seemingly innocuous plecostomus
       Cmaj7
though posthumus

They talk to us

They talk too much


Em      
See a sea anemone
    G
The enemy
          Cmaj7
See a sea anemone

That'll be the end of me
Em                   
Vicious fish was caught unawares

In the tenderest tendrils

Underneath her tender gills and

I will become this animal
Em           G          
Anomalous appendages
