G6

Marvelous...why? <womanly giggle> It's singer is

F##11

Marvelous...that's right I'm so

E-9

Marvelous it makes you

Eb9

Marvel how He could do this to

D9

me...  

(Verse 1A)

F6

(Eve) i'm the only

girl in this brand new wide

Dm7

world that we'll

Eb Maj7

have to explore...cause He

Bb Maj7

just shut the door...

<Adam walks on - standing apart>

(Eve) My husband works all day...

    (Adam) My wife - the loving mother

(Eve) The boys ignore what I say...

    (Adam) They're gonna kill each other

(Eve) If you gave me some help

    (Adam) You wanted another

(Eve) If you cared how I felt

               Cm7         Eb7/Bb  Ab7         G7

    (Adam) I'd put to use that snake skin belt

<walk further apart>

                        C-maj7       G7      C

(Eve) I feel so dejected

                            G           C           G    C

    (Adam) Lost a creative profession

                      G      F         G

(Eve) Cause we got ejected

                                        C    G    C

    (Adam) Takin' care of the zoo

                         G             C

(Eve) We had the sweetest abode

                         G             F            G

    (Adam) It was quite a collection

                                 F7         G7             Cm7    Abm7    Ab7

(Eve) But He said "Hit      the        road!"

(Verse 1B)

Ebm7    <come together>     

(Both) We ate the fruit <slight pause>, <spoken. shrugs> what's the big fuss? <pause>

<sung> Really, He was  too hard on us.

(Eve) Such a dumb rule, <pause> (Adam) <spoken, pointing> "Don't eat from that tree!"

(still Adam, spoken) Who wouldn't break it?  (Eve) <sung> Everyone that you see!

(both) Can't really say I feel much conviction <touch heart>

Way out of line to serve an eviction

(scat) <walk apart>

a-we just got kicked out today

nobody in the area, no place to stay

we can go where we want from Australia to Sweden

<molto rit.  walk together.> The only exception is we can't stay in Eden

(Chorus 2)

(Eve) Marvelous

(Adam) Marvelous, (Eve) the fashion was

Marvelous <wink> (Adam) our back yard was <reach out>

Marvelous, (Both) the garden was

Marvelous (Adam) Locally grown, organic, all natural, free trade, hormone free, rainforest securing, whole fruits and

Wheatgrass galore

(Verse 2A)

<apart>

(Adam) <accuse>Ya had to eat the fruit!?

    (Eve) It was just a taste!

(Adam) Then gave the rest to me!

    (Eve) Tryin' to watch my waist <run hands to show figure>

(Adam) We should'a kept that rule...

    (Eve) It was an easy one too...

(Both) What are we gonna do? <descending whole notes for Adam, ascending for Eve>

<come together>  

(Verse 2B)

(Eve) We're lost, no way to get back

Get directions!  (Adam) I'll never ask!

(Both) Maybe, He'll come lead us back home <hopeful, look at each other>

Maybe, we're stuck on our own <sour look>

(bridge)

<apart>

              E6                         E7/D                  A9/C#           Cmaj7 b9

(Both) Such a small rule, so easy to break, so easy to keep, what a mistake!

(Adam) It isn't just Eden, and losing our home, we got what we wanted, and now we're alone.

(Eve) We walked with Him talked with like He was ManMore than the place I miss time with Him

(Both) Such a small rule, so easy to break, so easy to keep, what a mistake!

(Adam) <break down accomp.> Alone like this wasn't worth the sin, I'd give my left rib to get back in! <spoken> (Eve) That's right sweetheart...right here <points to self>

<come together>

(Both) Such a small rule, so easy to break, so easy to keep, what a mistake...

(Both) Such a small rule, so easy to break, so easy to keep, what a mistake...

(Both) Such a small rule, so easy to break, so easy to keep, what a mistake...

(Both) <a capella> Still more than that place, I miss that Guy, I hope even now He hears us cry!

(Chorus 3)

Cmaj7

Marvelous <look out>

A7

Marvelous, being side by side was  <look together, side rub>

G6

Marvelous, being face to face was <turn to one another>

F##11

Marvelous, to be back would be <Hand in hand, look down, look up>

Cmaj7

Marvelous <look at audience>
