Tabs to Petrov Yelyena and ME!!

Postby pizzafreak54 » Tue Apr 15, 2008 12:43 pm

ok so someone finally posted a video of them playing petrov yelyena and me live so i watched it over and over again to figure out the chords they play and here they are:

(i dont know the names of the chords though)
A: 577655
B: 779997
C: 557775

For most of the song Bret's strumming is this:
(but in the beginning Bret plucks it like Jemaine's part further down.

e|--5---5-5-5---5---5-5-5----|
B|--5---5-5-5---5---5-5-5----|
G|--6---6-6-6---6---6-6-6----|
D|--7---7-7-7---7---7-7-7----|
A|--7---7-7-7---7---7-7-7----|
E|--5---5-5-5---0---0-0-0----|
(for the first strum Bret just strums the first two strings)
every other strum of this Bret makes the low E an open note

then for the parts like "lost but happy at sea" you strum the B once, then C once, then start strumming A again:

e|---7---5---5---|
B|---9---7---5---|
G|---9---7---6---|
D|---9---7---7---|
A|---7---5---7---|
E|---7---5---5---|

Then for the parts like "three days later they were hungry again" you play the A chord once then move down one fret, play once, move down again and play once again, then start the A strumming again, like so:
e|--5---4---3---|
B|--5---4---3---|
G|--6---5---4---|
D|--7---6---5---|
A|--7---6---5---|
E|--5---4---3---|

For Jemaine's parts, he does the same thing except he plucks the chords like so:
e|------------------|
B|-----5-5-----5-5--|
G|-----6-6-----6-6--|
D|-----7-7-----7-7--|
A|--7-------7-------|
E|------------------|

then when it goes B, C, then back to A strumming Jemaine just plucks all four of those strings, same with when you go down a fret with the A chord

Here's the lyrics along with the chords. For the right strumming just look at the tab above
These lyrics are the ones to the youtube video of them playing it, not the ones on their Folk the World Tour CD.
sorry about the squished chords over the lyrics

(i dont the names of these chords, so I'll just make them up)
A: 577655
B: 779997
C: 557775
D: 466544
E: 355433
F: 244322

A B C
Petrov, Yelyena, and me. Lost, but happy, at sea
A A B C
Petrov and Yelyena said to me "Shouldn't we have something to eat?"

A D E F
I say "There are plenty of fish in the sea"
C B A
But all they can see... is me.

A B
They say, "Any last requests?" Biding my time, I say "Yes.
C A B C A
I want to party, just we three. Lost, but happy at sea."

A
So we drank all night from the keg
I passed out, then awoke with one leg
I said, "Petrov, have you seen my leg?"
B C A
He said "No" and he went back to bed....
B C A
But he looked suspiciously well fed.

A D E F
Three days later they were hungry again
C B A
They said, "Any last requests, my friend?"
A
I said, "Do you know the Rolling Stones?
Like we were at a rock concert, you know? Ya. Drinking Coca-Cola,
and we got big time? No. Ya, it was a hilarious, hilarious moment in a very bleak bleak
of my life."

A
So we danced all night to the Rolling Stones,
A B
when I awoke they were chewing on bones.
C A
Yelyena was supping blood from a cup,
B C A
that's when I knew something was up.

A
"Petrov?"
"What?"
"What is that you're eating?"
"What I am eating?"
"It looks like a meat."
"It's fish."
"But, it has fingers."
"Fish fingers."
"You see, you remember my arm?"
"Ooh, vaguely."
"Well, this morning I wake up and it has been hacked off at the elbow."
"Oh. That's right, you were very drunk last night. You probably lost it...in a game of chance."
"You are probably right."
"Relax, have some...fish."

C
Four months now lost at sea,
A B
my friends have almost finished me.
C A
Now they are using recipes....

B C A
Tonight, we are having 'me goering'

A
"You know the Malaysian dish? With the, umm, meat and noodle, but in this case, ya? Oh never mind. Silly, silly joke really.
"Bertolt, come have some of this 'you goering' it's delicious."
"How can I, you have eaten all of my leg?!"
*Mocking* "How can I you have eaten all of my leg."

C
Later that night, while they were asleep,
A B
I swallowed some arsenic to poison my meat
C A
I was very ill, but revenge is so sweet...
B C A
Unlike the last meal my comrades would eat.

A
"Yes, eat it all up, ah! Not so sweet all of a sudden, hmm?"

(For the 'Oooh' part they play A then bring it up to the first fret, then back down)

E|--5---5-5-5-----1---1-1-1---|
B|--5---5-5-5-----1---1-1-1---|
G|--6---6-6-6-----2---2-2-2---|
D|--7---7-7-7-----3---3-3-3---|
A|--7---7-7-7-----3---3-3-3---|
E|--5---5-5-5-----1---1-1-1---|

A
When I awoke, they were already dead
A B
All that was left of me was my head...
C A
No, not dead, just a head.
B C A
Lost, but happy, at sea.
B C A
Lost, but lonely, at sea.
C B
Lost, but so lonely...
A
At sea

THE END

When? Where? I've requested that one at the live shows and I guess they hadn't rehearsed that one. I've only heard it on their Folk the World CD.

*has to go search Youtube right now!*

Thanks! I went to see it and then sent it to a few people who would really appreciate it.

It was really fun, and the guys seemed to enjoy it, too.

I have a lyrics question. Ever since the first time I heard Petrov, I thought it was:
"You know the Rolling Stones?
You know like you're at the wrong concert going, 'Paul, Paul'?"

That to me was why it was a hilarious, hilarious moment - saying a Beatles' name at a Stones concert. Does anybody else hear the "P" sound on "Paul" or the "ng" on "wrong"?

ps I wish I knew how to decipher tabs. I can read chords written over the lyrics, but not tabs. It looks as though you really worked hard on it, pizzafreak!
Oh, fish-like Lady
Lady-like Fish
I don't think so Bro, she's a Lady, Lady, Lady, Lady
No, no, she's a fish that's just a little bit
La-dy-ish! Yeah!
