D A6 Bm From here in my cage I see them make plans, G D Hear them reassure investors, shake presidents' hands. D A6 Bm The men with machines put tubes into me, G D They measure my vital signs, my flight trajectory. D A6 Bm They taught me to sit, taught me to lie down. G D Told me that a thousand years of wondering would end now. D A6 Bm They fed me my last meal, was the same as my first. G D From here in my cage, I watch the men work. Interlude: D A6 D A6 Bm And now it's a flurry of lab coats and hurry. G D They talk about budgets and taxpayers' money. D A6 Bm And I wag my tail and I be a good girl, G D They forgot to walk me this morning they were too busy changing the world. D A6 Bm And I'm out from my cage and I'm trying to be brave, G D But the men they are sweating and now they're injecting, D A6 And as I awake Bm I'm shocked and amazed. G At the sheer, crushing empty. G Asus4 Bm A6 G G And I look down on men's little earth, sitting there quietly, wondering what it's worth. Asus4 A Bm Asus4 G D And I drift away, but that's okay, there's more room to play out here than back in my cage. A5 Bm And I know I will die, but that is fine, G D Cause in some way I am helping mankind. A5 Bm And I don't understand, cause I'm not as smart as them, G D But even a parachute would have shown that they cared. D A6 Bm And so I float on, space's only dog. G D Friend to the stars, pet of the sun. A6 Bm From my little ship I dream of my bone, G G A walk in the park, something comfy to sleep on. Asus4 Bm And they call me Laika but I'd just like to say A G G That I was born Little Curly and I'll die with that name. Asus4 Bm Yeah they call me Laika but I'd just like to say A G D I was born Little Curly and I'll die with that name.
