REPEATED THROUGH WHOLE SONG BUT JUST PICKED DIFFERNTLY

  Load up on guns and bring your friends.
  It's fun to lose and to pretend.
  She's over bored and self assured.
  Oh no, I know a dirty word.

          Hel-lo,    hel-lo,     hel-lo,   how  low?
         Hel-lo,    hel-lo,     hel-lo,   how  low?
         Hel-lo,    hel-lo,     hel-lo,   how  low?
         Hel-lo,    hel-lo,     hel-lo. With the lights


  Chorus

  out it's less dangerous.
  Here we are now.
  Entertain us.
  I feel stupid.
  and contagious.
  here we are now.
  entertain us.
  A mullato,
  an albino,
  A mosquito,
  my libido.    Yay

  Bridge
                            Yay

  I'm worse at what I do best,
  and for this gift I feel blessed.
  Our little group has always been
  and always will until the end.

  Repeat pre-chorus, chorus, and bridge







  w/ end of solo
  And I forget just what I taste.
  Oh yeah, I guess it makes me smile.
  I found it hard, it was hard to find.
  Oh well whatever, never mind.

  Repeat pre-chorus, then

  out it's less dangerous.
  Here we are now.
  Entertain us.
  I feel stupid.
  and contagious.
  here we are now.
  entertain us.
  A mullato,
  an albino,
  A mosquito,
  my libido,
  A denial,
  A denial,
  A denial,
  A denial,
  A denial!

Lithium

This Tab was written by someone else can't remeber name This Whole Tab is his

There's no bass for the entire first verse.

Bass comes in at the first _chorus_:

G----------------------------------------------------------|
D------------7----5-5-5----5-5-5-5-7-7-7-7-----------------|
A-------4----------------7-----------------2-2-2-2-5-5-5-5-|
E--0--0----0----0------------------------------------------|

Then, the second (and third) verse:

G-----------------------------------------------------|
D----------------------7--7-7-9-9-9-9-----------------|
A--7--7-6--6-4--4---------------------2-2-2-2-5-5-5-5-|
E-----------------5--5--------------------------------|

The last time you play the above (last one before the chorus):

G------------------------------------------------------|
D--------------------------7-------5-------------------| 
A--7--7-6--6-4--4------5-5---5-3-3---3-2-2-2-2-5-5-5-5-|
E-----------------5--5---------------------------------|

Play the chorus again, then the _other chorus_:

G------------------------------------------------------------|
D--------------------------5-7--7-7-5---5--------------------|
A---------3--3-3-----3-5-7------------7---7--7-5-3-0-3-0-3-5-|
E--5--5-5--------5-5-----------------------------------------|

The bridge part, going into the third verse of ending the song:

G---------------------------------||---|
D---------------------------------||---|
A--2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-0-0-0-0-0------||---|
E----------------------------0-3--||-0-|
                                     ^
                                 End of song only.

Oh, and one time, the very last repetition of the _other chorus_ part
during the second time its played, there is a variation that goes like
this:

G----------------------------------------------5-------------|
D--------------------------5--7--7-7-5---5-7-7---7-5---------| Then go into
A---------3--3-3-----3-5-7-------------7-------------7-6-5-3-| the above
G--5--5-5--------5-5-----------------------------------------| bridge part.

Lyrics
  I'm so happy 'cause today I've found my friends.
  They're in my head.
  I'm so ugly, but that's okay, 'cause so are you.
  We've broken our mirr'rs.
  Sunday morning is ev'ry day for all I care.
  And I'm not scared.

  Light my candles in a daze 'cause I've found God.




  I'm so lonely but that's okay I shaved my head.
  And I'm not sad.
  And just maybe I'm to blame for all I've heard.
  But I'm not sure.
  I'm so excited, I can't wait to meet you there.
  But I don't care.
  I'm so horny, but that's okay. My will is good.

  Repeat chorus

[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/n/nirvana/nevermind_btab.html ]
   I like it, I'm not gonna crack.
   I miss you, I'm not gonna crack.
   I love you, I'm not gonna crack.
   I'd kill you, I'm not gonna crack.
   I like it, I'm not gonna crack.
   I miss you, I'm not gonna crack.
   I love you, I'm not gonna crack.
   I'd kill you, I'm not gonna crack.

Lyrics


  Polly wants a cracker,
  I think I should get off of her first.
  I think she wants some water
  to put out the blow torch




  It isn't me.
  We have some seed.
  Let me clip your dirty wings.
  Let me take a ride.
  Don't hurt yourself.
  I want some help
  to please myself.
  I've got some rope
  you have been told.
  I promise you
  I have been true.
  Let me take a ride.
  Don't hurt yourself
  I want some help
  to please myself.


  Polly wants a cracker,
  maybe she would like more food.
  She asks me to untie her.
  A chase would be nice for a few.



  It isn't me.
  We have some seed.
  Let me clip your dirty wings.
  Let me take a ride.
  Don't hurt yourself.
  I want some help
  to help myself.
  I've got some rope
  you have been told.
  I promise you
  I have been true.
  Let me take a ride.
  Don't hurt yourself
  I want some help
  to help myself.




  Polly said

  Polly says her back hurts,
  she's just as bored as me, 
  she caught me off my guard,
  it amazes me the will of instinct.


  It isn't me.
  We have some seed.
  Let me clip your dirty wings.
  Let me take a ride.
  Don't hurt yourself.
  I want some help
  to help myself.
  I've got some rope
  you have been told.
  I promise you
  I have been true.
  Let me take a ride.
  Don't hurt yourself
  I want some help
  to help myself.

Lyrics

  When I was an alien
  cultures weren't opinions

  Gotta find a way
  to find a way
  when I'm there
  Gotta find a way
  a better way
  I had better wait... (etc.)

  Never met a wise men,
  if so it's a woman
  Gotta find a way
  to find a way
  when I'm there

  Gotta find a way
  a better way
  I had better wait... (etc.)



  Just because you're paranoid,
  doesn't mean they're
  not after you.

  Gotta find a way     (etc.)

Lyrics

  One baby to another says I'm lucky to meet you.
  I don't care what you think unless it is about me.
  It is now my duty to completely drain you.
  A travel through a tube and end up in your infection.



  Chew meat for you,
  pass it back and forth.
  In a passionate kiss,
  from my mouth to yours

  'cause I   like     you

  With eyes so dilated I've become your pupil.
  You've thaught me everything without a poison apple.
  The water is so yellow, I'm a healthy student.
  Indebted and so greatful.Vacuum out the fluids.

  Chew meat for you,
  pass it back and forth.
  In a passionate kiss,
  from my mouth to yours

  'cause I   like     you,           you,   you,
                or


  One baby to another says I'm lucky to meet you.
  I don't care what you think unless it is about me.
  It is now my duty to completely drain you.
  A travel through a tube and end up in your infection.

  Chew meat for you,
  pass it back and forth.
  In a passionate kiss,
  from my mouth to yours
  sloppy lips to lips,
  you're my vitamins

  'cause I   like     you

  Thruth, covered in security,
  I can't let you smoother me.
  I'd like to but it wouldn't work,
  trading off and taking turns.

  Chorus
  And I've got  this friend,
  you see who makes me feel
  and I wanted more than I could steal.
  I'll arrest myself, I'll wear a shield.
  I'll go out my way to prove I

    still                           smell her

  Don't tell me what I want to hear.
  Afraid of never knowing fear,
  experience anything you need.
  I'll keep fighting jelousy.
  Until it's fucking gone

  And I've got  this friend,

  I'll go out my way to make you a deal.
  We've made a pact to learn from who -
  ever we want without new rules.
  We'll save what's lost and what we grew.
  They'll go out their way to prove they

 Monkey say, monkey do.   I don't know why!
 I'd rather be dead than cool.     I don't know why!
 Ev'ry line ends in rhyme.    I don't know why!
 Less is more, love is blind.   I don't know why!

 Stay, stay away...   (etc)

 Give an inch take a smile.    I don't know why!
 Fashion shifts, fashion style.   I don't know why!
 Throw it out and keep it in.     I don't know why!
 Have to have poison skin.      I don't know why!

 Stay, stay away...   (etc)

Lyrics
 I'll start this off
 Without any words
 I got so high that
 I scratched 'til I bled

 I love myself
 Better than you
 I know it's wrong
 So what should I do?

 The finest day
 That I ever had
 Was when I learned
 To cry on command

 I love myself
 Better than you
 I know it's wrong
 So what should I do?

 I'm on a plain
 I can't complain
 I'm on a plain

 My mother died
 Every night
 It's safe to say
 Don't quote me on that

 I love myself
 Better than you
 I know it's wrong
 So what should I do?

 The black sheep got
 Blackmailed again
 Forgot to put
 On the zip code

 I love myself
 Better than you
 I know it's wrong
 So what should I do?

 I'm on a plain
 I can't complain
 I'm on a plain

 Somewhere I have heard this before
 In a dream my mem'ry has stored
 As defense I'm neutered and spayed
 What the hell am I trying to say?

 It is now time
 To make it unclear
 To write off lines
 That don't make a sense

 I love myself
 Better than you
 I know it's wrong
 So what should I do?

 One more special
 Message to go
 And then I'm done
 And I can go home

 I love myself
 Better than you
 I know it's wrong
 So what should I do?

 I'm on a plain
 I can't complain
 I'm on a plain

Underneath the bride
the tarp has sprung a leak
And the animals I've trapped
have all become my pets
And I'm living off of grass
and the drippings from the ceiling
But it's okay to eat fish
'cause they haven't any feelings

Something in the way
Mmmm...
Something in the way, yeah
Mmmm...
