The Babysitters Here Chords

   
The Babysitter’s Here
By: Dar Williams

Transcribed by: Tim SanFilippo

**Special Note:  When strumming (as opposed to picking) this song, 
the G** chord sounds a little strange.  It feels like you should 
move to F.  However, these are the exact chords as she finger-picks 
them.  If you don’t like the way G** sounds, you can replace it 
with F.  But it won’t be 100% accurate.

Intro:  C-G-F-G

C                           G                      C      G
Tonight was just great, she taught us the sign for peace
          C                          G               
Now she's made us some popcorn we've turned out the lights
          Am       Em
And we're watching movies
  F                        G         
I don't understand and she tries to explain
      G**                          G         
How a spaceship is riding through somebody's brain
            C         G        F  G
And there's blood and guts, Oh

C                       Em         
She's the best one that we've ever had
    F                          G         
She sits on her hair and she's tall as my dad
        G**                        G
And she tie-dyed my shirt, and she pierced her own ear
         Am         Em            F   G        C     G F G
And it's peace man, cool yah, the babysitter's here

    C                       G                       C       G
Her boyfriend is Tom but we call him 'the king of romance'
   C                 G                       Am        Em
He wears an American flag on the butt of his ripped up pants and
F                          G            
Will they get married with kids of their own
        G**                   G          
He says not if she's going to college we won't and he
C      G       F  G
Kisses her  oh

C                       Em         
She's the best one that we've ever had
    F                          G        
She sits on her hair and she's tall as my dad
        G**                    G
And she got mad at dinner when Tom drank a beer
     
    Am         Em            F   G        C     G F G
But peace man, cool hey, the babysitter's here

       F                      G
And we all went to see her go dance at the high school
   Am         Em
We made her a big card
        F                         G                   Am   Em  
And she told us that she'd be the unicorn wearing the pink leotard and
F                        G          
There she was leaping up just like she said
       G**                   G         
With a sparkling horn coming out of her head
            C    G   F   G 
And she's,  oh....
C                    Em     F  G  G** G  Am  Em  F-G-C  G  F  G 
She’s the best one...     (spoken lyrics but strummed like chorus)


         C                       G                          C     G
But it's Saturday night, I can't sleep and I'm watching the news
         C                   G                       Am       Em
She says do me a favor don't go with a guy who would make you choose 
      F                        G        
and I don't understand and she tries to explain
    G**                   G                            C       G  F G  
And all that mascara runs down in her pain cause she's leaving me

C                        Em         
You're the best one that we've ever had
    F                           G         
You sit on your hair and you're tall as my dad
         G**                    G          
And I'll make you a picture for college next year
   Am        Em             F   G        C    G
So hush now, peace man, the babysitter's here
    F    G            C      G  F  G  C
The best babysitter's here
