Boombox Chords

You could play the same chords as for the chorus throughout and add emphasis for 
the chorus but i have tried to follow the bass synth at the begining you can add a 
capo at the first and do it how you please really and update it bits that sound better
   EM         AM           DM         F#M          A2           B5

[The Lonely Island] All Lonely Island Bits
EM                            F#M
Imagine in your mind a posh country club
A2                              B5
The stuffy old money where the poor get snubbed 
EM                            F#M
The spread is bland sauerkraut and boiled goose 
A2                              B5
There's no way these people will ever cut loose 
EM                            F#M
But then I walk in the room, hold my boombox high 
A2                              B5
And what happened next, will blow your mind

[Julian Casablancas] All Chorus/ Julian Casablancas Bits
AM                   DM
Everything got outta control
EM              AM 
The music was so entrancing
AM                     DM
Everyone got out on the floor
EM                                  AM
It was a bunch of old white people dancing 

[The Lonely Island] 
Now picture if you will a bunch of business men 
Stuffed in the boardroom like pigs in a pen 
The ties around the necks are like a hangman's noose 
In the middle of the table there's a boiled goose 

The old people smell makes you want to puke in the sink 
These dudes will never dance yeah that's what you think 
I stride in the room all young and hip 
Hold up my boombox and say listen to this 

[Julian Casablancas] 
Then everyone started to move 
People rejoiced instead of financing 
Your preconcieved notions were shattered 
By the super old white people dancing 

[The Lonely Island] 
The big apple, where people never dance 
Spirits go down while profits expand 
The cops or the dealers, who's got the juice 
The street benders peddling their boiled goose 

So many types of people will never get along 
Till I bust out my boombox and play this song 

[Julian Casablancas] 
The music washed away all the hate 
And society started advancing 
Every demographic was represented 
It was a rainbow coalition of dancing 
Everyone was wearing fingerless gloves 
I saw a Spanish guy doing the Bartman 

[The Lonely Island] 
Transport now to an old folks home 
Where the elderly are tossed on their brittle bones 
The orderlies are stealing there's no excuse 
Everyday for lunch they eat boiled goose 

So I grabbed my boombox and hit the turbo bass 
And what happened next was a total disgrace 

[Julian Casablancas] 
Everybody started having sex 
The music was way too powerful 
A bunch of old people fucking like rabbits 
It was disgusting to say the least 
A boombox can change the world 
You gotta know your limits with a boombox 
This was a cautionary tale 
A boombox is not a toy
