*Climate Killer* by XOEarth Stele is a parody of *Psycho Killer* by Talking Heads, David Byrne, Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth.

Our ailing planet could suffer a deadly ecological system[s] failure within three years - say some climate scientists. Help our planet stay healthy so we can keep having fun. Work ecologically. Travel ecologically. Eat ecologically. Donate ecologically. Play ecologically.

I [can] see the Earth die but it's a fact
A7 G
I sell deadly products and then I relax
A7 G
I sleep just fine while my Earth's on fire
A7 G
Don't leave me, I need another buyer

E|-----------------------0--3--|
(Then comes seven beats of A and one beat of G, played twice.)
(You can emphasize these any way you like, really--I usually play)
(the A's as A lock-step march, then do kind of jangle with the G.)

[A] [G]
[A] [G]

(Hit the G's hard, then immediately get soft on the A's)

[A] I can't seem to face up to the facts [G] [Verse]
[A] I'm tense and nervous and I can't relax [G]
[A] I can't sleep cause my bed's on fire [G]
[A] Don't touch me I'm A real live wire [G]

[Chorus]

[F] Psycho kil[G]ler, qu'est-ce que [C]'est

[F] Run run run [G] run run run run A[C]way
Oh oh oh [F] oh [G] ay ay ay ay ay

(There is A four-note descending bass riff over the [ch]Bm[/ch] and C, played
twice in each key, but I try to keep it simple during periods when
my hands and mouth have to move at the same time)

[Interlude]

[[ch]Bm[/ch]] Ce que j'ai fait, ce soir [C] la (What I did that night)
[[ch]Bm[/ch]] Ce qu'elle A dit, ce soir [C] la (What she said that night)
[A] Realisant mon espoir (Realizing my hopes)
[G] Je me lance, vers la gloire (I rush towards glory)

(Back to hitting G's hard.)

[A] Okay [G]
[A] Ay ay ay ay ay ay ay ay [G]
[A] We are vain and we are blind [G]
[A] I hate people when they're not polite [G]

[Chorus]

[Am] Fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa better
[F] Run run run [G] run run run run A[C]way
[F] Psycho kil[G]ler, qu'est-ce que [C]'est

[F] Run run run [G] run run run run A[C]way
Oh oh oh [F] oh [G] ay ay ay ay ay\

[Instrumental]

[A] [G]
[A] [G]

[Alternative Verse]

[A] I passed out hours ago [G]
[A] I'm sadder than you'll ever know [G]
[A] I close my eyes on this sunny day [G]
[A] Say something once, why say it again [G]
