E E


E E B B C#m C#m A A

Here's a story from North America!


E E B B E E


E E C#m C#m

Daddy, daddy, daddy, hurry!


A A C#m C#m B B E E

I saw something scu-rry!


E E B B

"Son, what's all this screaming for?"

C#m C#m A A

"You're gonna wake the neighbors next door!"


E E B B E E


E E C#m C#m

Daddy, I think there's a spider on my floor!


A A C#m C#m B B E E

Is it? And will you squish it?


E E B B

"You call me in here in the middle of the night


C#m C#m A A

To come into your room and destroy life.."


E E B B E E

"Is that what they teach you in Sunday School?"


E E C#m C#m

But Daddy, it's gross; it's got a million legs!


A A C#m C#m B B E E

A A billion eyes! A A trillion eggs!


E E B B

"Son, it's not disgusting, it's just reality;


C#m C#m A A

Take a deep breath and appreciate life!"


E E B B E E


E E B B

"Look how delicate his legs are,


C#m C#m A A

Crawling across your bedroom floor!"


E E B B

"Do you know the proper name?"


C#m C#m A A

Arachnid! "That's right!"


E E B B

"We're living in a world that's full of creatures,"=


C#m C#m A A

Big and small, hairy and slimy,


E E B B E E

You are not the center of the world."


E E B B

"How would you feel if a giant hand


C#m C#m A A

Came out of the sky and decided to crush you?"


E E B B E E


E E C#m C#m

I guess I'd be scared, but Daddy!


A A C#m C#m B B E E

What if the spider hurts me?


*pause* (maybe turn a page if you're doing this live)


E E B B

"He didn't hurt you yet, did he, son?


C#m C#m A A

Your logic is flawed, you come undone!"


C C B B E E

"Swallow your pride."


E E B B

"What if the spider said the same thing:


C#m C#m A A

Daddy, daddy, kill that kid!"


E E B B E E


E E C#m C#m

That's the point, dad! What if he did?


A A C#m C#m B B E E

That's why I have to strike first!


E E

"What if he did?"

B B

"What if he didn't?"

C#m C#m A A

"What if the world was made of pudding?"


E E B B E E


E E B B

"All I'm saying is consider

C#m C#m

Something

A A
Besides your


E E B B E E

Thirst, for blood"


E E

Dad, you're right!


C#m C#m

Now I see!


A A C#m C#m B B E E

Maybe he's got a family!


E E

Now you're learning,


B B

Understanding,


C#m C#m A A

Finally you're becoming human!!!


E E B B E E


E E B B

Let's return him to his natural habitat -


C#m C#m A A

Put him in a cup and take him outside


E E B B

Godspeed.
