So Serious
Electric Light Orchestra
from "Balance of Power"

Notes: on the "serious, so serious" ending to the chorus, skip the last
bar and immediately start into the next verse with the C-chord.

(triplet feel)        (8th note run)        (16th note run)

Verse:
C             G       (riff 1)
  Night after night
Dm                 Am        F  G
  I try to make it all fit together
C             G       (riff 1)
  Night after night
Dm             Am          F  G
  I see you as someone I remember

Pre-Chorus:
C                   Dm
  You took me by surprise
               Em
  Opened up my eyes
               F              (riff 2)
  Now we gotta talk this over.

Chorus:
Am       F         G      C
  Can it really be so serious?
        Am         F      G     C
  To be all broken up and delirious
C         G            Am          F
  I guess we've really been out of touch
      Am     F         G      C  
  But can it really be so serious?
       Am   F      G
  (Serious, so serious)

Verse (same as first verse):
  Day after day
  I know it's not the way that you wanted it
  Day after day
  I try to find the key, but it don't fit

Pre-Chorus:
  But you know how it is
  No matter what I did
  We gotta talk it over. (riff 3 instead of riff 2)

Chorus:
  Can it really be so serious?
  To be all broken up and delirious
  I guess we've really been out of touch
  But can it really be so serious?
  (Serious, so serious)

Verse:
  Tonight, tonight
  I'm thinking over everything you said to me
  Tonight, tonight
  I'm sorry, but I just didn't see

Pre-Chorus:
  And now it's up to you
  There's nothing else to do
  We've gotta talk it over. (riff 3)

Chorus:
  Can it really be so serious?
  To be all broken up and delirious
  I guess we've really been out of touch
  But can it really be so serious?

Ending (use the Am-F-G-C progression from chorus):
  Serious, so serious
  Serious, so serious...
