Animals Coldplay Transcribed by Tom Donovan I've seen some really rubbish transcriptions of this song and I'm not quite sure where they got the chords from to be honest so I decided to do one myself. This is basically a Chord Transcription for Piano Players, but it sounds really cool if you put a capo on the 3rd fret and play it on acoustic guitar. I've put the chords for this in brackets next to the concert pitch chords. Intro: Eb(C) / F (D) / Eb(C) / F (D)// x2 Verse 1: G (E) Eb (C) Animals we are, Cm (Am) G (E) Disposable, collapsible and raw, Eb(C) Cm (Am) In you go into some crowded room, G (E) Eb (C) And animals that climb, Cm (Am) G (E) And they're climbing over you until you say, Eb (C) Cm (Am) "Off you go, off you go," Verse 2: G (E) Eb (C) Animal I am Cm (Am) G (E) And I'm looking for an answer just like you, Eb (C) Cm (Am) I should know which way to turn, G (E) Eb (C) An animal that runs Cm (Am) G (E) And I ran away from you because I'm scared, Eb (C) Cm (Am) "Off you go, off you go," Chorus: Ebmaj7 (C) F (Dadd11) If you're gonna go, go now, Ebmaj7 (C) F (Dadd11) If you're gonna go, go now, Ebmaj7 (C) F (Dadd11) I forgot to tell you now, Ebmaj7 (C) F (Dadd11) So if you're gonna go, [G (E)] Go now, Link: [G (E)] / Eb (C) / Eb (C) / Cm (Am) // Verse 3: G (E) Eb (C) Animal you are, Cm (Am) Disposable, defenceless yes and, G (E) Eb (C) Cm (Am) Watch your mouth; boys watch your mouth, G (E) Eb (C) An animal that runs, Cm (Am) And I made all my excuses to you, G (E) Eb (C) Cm (Am) And I missed my chance by a stones throw, Chorus: Ebmaj7 (C) F (Dadd11) If you're gonna go, go now, Ebmaj7 (C) F (Dadd11) If you're gonna go, go now, Ebmaj7 (C) F (Dadd11) I forgot to tell you now, Ebmaj7 (C) F (Dadd11) So if you're gonna go, [G (E)] Go now, Bridge: [G (E)] / Eb (C) / Eb (C) / Cm (Am) x4 Final Section: G (E) Now crumble, Eb (C) Crumble and fall, Cm (Am) Crumble and fall like an animal, G (E) Yes I crumble, Eb (C) Crumble and fall, Cm (Am) Crumble and fall like an animal, G (E) Yes I crumble, Eb (C) Crumble and fall, Cm (Am) Crumble and fall like an animal, G (E) Yes I crumble, Eb (C) Crumble and fall, Cm (Am) Crumble and fall like an animal, G (E) / Eb (C) / Eb (C) / Cm (Am) // x4 It goes on for a bit after that with about 6 times through with the G / Eb / Eb / Cm/ chord sequence, its just piano, and sum weird effects. Chords for the guitar version capo 3rd fret G (E) 022100 Eb (C) x32010 Cm (Am) x02210 F (Dadd11) x54030 (You can just play a normal D chord but I have a bit of an obsession with this chord so I put it in. Its also better in the intro and the chorus because you can slide up and down between the C and D chords, rather than taking your hand away and making it sound a bit mechanical)
