From the album LITTLE (recorded by Michael Stipe in a single 10 hour session)

[Verse 1]

         G                  Am                  C
It was a modern love affair completely cool and casual
They hardly knew each other was there
             Am                                  C
I mean, they both of them had their own getting off to do
             Am                             C
They had to dream about their own self when they were through

        C               D                    C          D
But the modern girl was elated with what the revolution gave her
       C           D                    C                        D
Since she was liberated she could have anything that striked her fancy

[Verse 2]

And she fancied quite a bit
           Am               C
I mean, if it felt good she did it
And she did it every chance she could get
         Am                   C
With her main modern man and otherwise
        Am                           C
And her taste wasn't limited to just modern guys

       C                  D               C                       D
Since another modern girl showed her that modern girls know how to hold her
     C                      D                 C                             D
And after she had her eyes opened all her old close friends started getting closer
    Am                       C    D   G
And new friends weren't that far, far away


        G                         D           Em                   Am          D
But the modern man, he wasn't so lucky being shook from his usual role as the heartbreaker
        G                       D
He was completely battered and bewildered
        Em                           Am            D
When he actually started in feeling something for her

        Em              C                 G                             D
And he discovered a new emotion when they stopped ending up together as frequently
            Em                              C                     G                               D
And when he finally confronted her with the question had she been bedding down with others in the periphery
    Em                       C
without him, and she replied "Hell yes! ain't it funny!"

[Verse 3]

    G                  Am                        C
so view the modern man looking like a soft, soft Picasso
      G                                 Am                   C
He's there with his head in his hand repeating to himself an epigram
Am                  C                     G
"Live by the scam, die by the scam."
