O Children (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds)

Em 1. Pass me that lovely little gun C My dear, my darling one Am The cleaners are coming, one by one G D You don't even want to let them start 2. They are knocking now upon your door They measure the room, they know the score They're mopping up the butcher's floor Of your broken little hearts Em C Am G D R1: Oooo-oooo-oooo-oooo children 3. Forgive us now for what we've done It started out as a bit of fun Here, take these before we run away The keys to the gulag Em Cmaj7 R2: Oooo children G D Em Lift up your voice, lift up your voice Cmaj7 Children G D Em C Am G D Rejoice, rejoice 4. Here comes Frank and poor old Jim They're gathering round with all my friends We're older now, the light is dim And you are only just beginning R1: Oooo... 5. We have the answer to all your fears It's short, it's simple, it's crystal clear It's round about, it's somewhere here Lost amongst our winnings R2: Oooo children... 6. The cleaners have done their job on you They're hip to it, man, they're in the groove They've hosed you down, you're good as new They're lining up to inspect you R1: Oooo... 7. Poor old Jim's white as a ghost He's found the answer that was lost We're all weeping now, weeping because There ain't nothing we can do to protect you R2: Oooo children... 8. Hey little train! We are all jumping on The train that goes to the Kingdom We're happy, Ma, we're having fun And the train ain't even left the station 9. Hey little train! Wait for me! I once was blind but now I see Have you left a seat for me? Is that such a stretch of the imagination? 10. Hey little train! Wait for me! I was held in chains but now I'm free I'm hanging in there, don't you see In this process of elimination 11. Hey little train! We are all jumping on The train that goes to the Kingdom We're happy, Ma, we're having fun It's beyond my wildest expectation 12. Hey little train! We are all jumping on The train that goes to the Kingdom We're happy, Ma, we're having fun And the train ain't even left the station(Fade Out)
