So Serious
Electric Light Orchestra
from "Balance of Power"

Notes: on the "serious, so serious" ending to the chorus, skip the last
bar and immediately start into the next verse with the C-chord.

(triplet feel) (8th note run) (16th note run)

Verse:
C G (riff 1)
Night after night
Dm Am F G
I try to make it all fit together
C G (riff 1)
Night after night
Dm Am F G
I see you as someone I remember

Pre-Chorus:
C Dm
You took me by surprise
Em
Opened up my eyes
F (riff 2)
Now we gotta talk this over.

Chorus:
Am F G C
Can it really be so serious?
Am F G C
To be all broken up and delirious
C G Am F
I guess we've really been out of touch
Am F G C
But can it really be so serious?
Am F G
(Serious, so serious)

Verse (same as first verse):
Day after day
I know it's not the way that you wanted it
Day after day
I try to find the key, but it don't fit

Pre-Chorus:
But you know how it is
No matter what I did
We gotta talk it over. (riff 3 instead of riff 2)

Chorus:
Can it really be so serious?
To be all broken up and delirious
I guess we've really been out of touch
But can it really be so serious?
(Serious, so serious)

Verse:
Tonight, tonight
I'm thinking over everything you said to me
Tonight, tonight
I'm sorry, but I just didn't see

Pre-Chorus:
And now it's up to you
There's nothing else to do
We've gotta talk it over. (riff 3)

Chorus:
Can it really be so serious?
To be all broken up and delirious
I guess we've really been out of touch
But can it really be so serious?

Ending (use the Am-F-G-C progression from chorus):
Serious, so serious
Serious, so serious...
