VERSE 1
   C                  G/B      Gm/Bb         F/A
Passing through the corridor I came upon an aging knight
      Fm/Ab                            C/G   F#m7
Who leaned against the wall in gnarly armor
 G            G/F              E7
He was on his way to see the king
Fo     Fo/Ab  Fo/B
Wilson Wilson Wilson
     C                   G/B              Gm/Bb
He led me through the streets of Prussia talking
      F/A                Fm/Ab                            C/G
As he tried to crush a bug that scurried underneath his boot heel
     G                G/F                 E7  Eo
He said there was a place where we should go
        F                  F/F#          G          G/G#
So he lead me through the forest to the edge of a lagoon by which
     Am              A/A#              F/A
We wandered 'til we reached a bubbly spring
      F/A            Fm/Ab          C/G
The knight grew very quiet as we stood there
         G             G/F          G/E              D6          C
Then he lifted up his visor and he turned to me and he began to sing
 
 
CHORUS 1
                                 G
He said I come from the land of darkness
           F                     C
He said I come from the land of doom
                                  G
He said I come from the land of Gamehendge
           F               C
From the land of the big baboon
                           G
But I'm never never going back there
       F            C
And I couldn't if I tried
                               G
Cause I come from the land of Lizards
         F                G
And the Lizards they have died
         F                 G
And the Lizards they have died
         F                 G
And the Lizards they have died
         F                 C
And the Lizards they have died

VERSE 2
   C                 G/B            Gm/Bb          F/A
He told me that the Lizards were a race of people practically extinct
           Fm/Ab               C/G        F#m7
From doing things smart people don't do
G                   G/F           E7   Fo  Fo/Ab  Fo/B  Fo/D
He said that he was once a Lizard too
     C             G/B                Gm/Bb      F/A
His name was Rutherford the Brave and he was on a quest to save
    Fm/Ab                         C/G        C6/G
His people from the fate that lay before them
       G             G/F        E7
Their clumsy end was perilously near
    F                F/F#               G                G/G#
The Lizards would be saved, he said, if they could be enlightened
       Am              Am/Bb             F/A
By the writings of the Helping Friendly Book
   F/A            Fm/Ab       C/G
In all of Prussia only one existed
    G             G/F            G/E             D              C
And Wilson had declared that any person who possessed it was a crook
 
 
CHORUS 2
                                 G
He said I come from the land of darkness
           F                     C
He said I come from the land of doom
                                 G
He said I come from the land of Gamehendge
         F                 C
From the land of the big baboon
                           G
But I'm never never going back there
        F            C
And I couldn't if I tried
                              G
Cause I come from the land of Lizards
         F                 G
And the Lizards they have died
         F                 G
And the Lizards they have died
        F                 G
And the Lizards they have died
        F                 C
And the Lizards they have died

VERSE 3
    C                 G/B             Gm/Bb                 F/A
The Helping Friendly Book, it seemed, possessed the ancient secrets
                    Fm/Ab        C/G     F#m7
Of eternal joy and never-ending splendor
    G                G/F           E7   Fo  Fo/Ab  Fo/B   Fo/D
The trick was to surrender to the flow
    C             G/B
We walked along beneath the moon
    Gm/Bb               F/A
He lead us through the bush 'till soon
    F/A            Fm/Ab         C/G    F#m7
We saw before our eyes a raging river
G                     G/F            E7    Eo
He said that we could swim it if we tried
      F              F/F#             G                G/G#
And saying this the knight dove in forgetting that his suit of arms
       Am              Am/Bb          F/A
Would surely weigh him down and so he sunk
    F/A          Fm/Ab         C/G
And as his body disappeared before me
   G                G/F           G/E               D                   C
I bowed my head in silence and remembered all the thoughts that he had thunk
 
 
CHORUS 3
                                 G
He said I come from the land of darkness
          F                      C
He said I come from the land of doom
                                 G
He said I come from the land of Gamehendge
          F                C
From the land of the big baboon
                           G
But I'm never never going back there
        F            C
And I couldn't if I tried
                              G
Cause I come from the land of Lizards
         F                 G
And the Lizards they have died
         F                G
And the Lizards they have died
        F                  G
And the Lizards they have died
         F                 G
Whoah Whoah Whoah Whoah Whoah  (repeat several times)
 
 
Piano Solo:                                                                                                          AbMaj7  Gm7
