Bb               Eb
You would not believe your eyes
Ab              Ab
If ten million fireflies
Bb          Eb               Ab
Lit up the world as I fell asleep
Bb                 Eb
'Cause they'd fill the open air
Ab                   Ab
And leave teardrops everywhere
Bb                      Eb                      Ab
You'd think me rude But I would just stand and stare

Ab           Eb             Bb
I'd like to make myself believe
            Ab     Eb     Gm  Ab
That planet Earth turns slowly
     Ab                    Eb           Ab          Bb    Cm
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay Awake when I'm asleep
    Ab             Eb           Bb
'Cause everything is never as it seems


Bb           Eb
'Cause I'd get a thousand hugs
Ab
From ten thousand lightning bugs
Bb              Eb               Ab
As they tried to teach me how to dance
Bb          Eb
a foxtrot above my head
Ab
a sock hop beneath my bed
  Bb             Eb                 Ab
a disco ball is just hanging by a thread


Ab           Eb             Bb
I'd like to make myself believe
            Ab     Eb     Gm  Ab
That planet Earth turns slowly
     Ab                    Eb           Ab          Bb    Cm
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay Awake when I'm asleep
    Ab             Eb           Bb
'Cause everything is never as it seems When I fall asleep

Bb             Eb           Ab
Leave my door open just a crack - Please take me away from here -
Bb               Eb              Ab
'Cause I feel like such an insomniac - Please take me away from here -
Bb        Eb                Ab
Why do I tire of counting sheep - Please take me away from here -
Bb               Eb               Ab
When I'm far too tired to fall asleep

Bb              Eb
To ten million fireflies
Ab
I'm weird 'cause I hate goodbyes
Bb           Eb                     Ab
I got misty eyes as they said farewell
Bb                Eb
But I'll know where several are
Ab
If my dreams get real bizarre
Bb                     Eb               Ab
'Cause I saved a few and I keep them in a jar


Ab           Eb             Bb
I'd like to make myself believe
            Ab     Eb     Gm  Ab
That planet Earth turns slowly
     Ab                    Eb           Ab          Bb    Cm
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay Awake when I'm asleep
    Ab             Eb           Bb
'Cause everything is never as it seems When I fall asleep


Ab           Eb             Bb
I'd like to make myself believe
            Ab     Eb     Gm  Ab
That planet Earth turns slowly
     Ab                    Eb           Ab          Bb    Cm
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay Awake when I'm asleep
    Ab             Eb           Bb
'Cause everything is never as it seems When I fall asleep


Ab           Eb             Bb
I'd like to make myself believe
            Ab     Eb     Gm  Ab
That planet earth turns slowly
     Ab                    Eb           Ab          Bb    Cm
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay Awake when I'm asleep
  Ab                   Eb               Bb      Bb  Eb
Because my dreams are bursting at the seams

I think this song just deserves a kermit the frog singing voice

ZZtop

👍 love the idea!!!!!

Alethea V.

XD Of course.

Sarah

Keep the same chord but put a capo on the 3rd fret it sounds more like the song.

lil

If yo want to make a capo, take a pencil and put across the top of your strings, and loop a rubber band around the ends underneath. Just be careful!

Mason D

DDUDUDUDU

Brittany Goble

Thank you for that lol that’s what I was needing lol

Aaron Münch

I think the first time you sing “When I fall asleep” souds weird with just staying on G. So I added in my version an F on asleep and after that C Em Am F C G. I think it sounds pretty good you should try it.

Alethea V.

Good idea! I will try it out.

Alethea V.

Did it and it sounds so much better!

Yolo Frodo

This sounds so good on ukulele

cherry sprite

capo in the third fret to get the same key as the original and you can live out all your meme dreams <3
