G                    D                    Em/D 
   From here in my cage I see them make plans, 
                       Cadd9                       G 
Hear them reassure investors, shake presidents' hands. 
G                    D                  Em/D 
   The men with machines put tubes into me, 
                       Cadd9                       G 
They measure my vital signs, my flight trajectory. 
G                    D                     Em/D 
   They taught me to sit, taught me to lie down. 
                       Cadd9                           G 
Told me that a thousand years of wondering would end now. 
G                       D                        Em/D 
   They fed me my last meal, was the same as my first. 
                 Cadd9                 G 
From here in my cage, I watch the men work. 


  G D Em/D Cadd9  


G                    D                    Em/D 
   And now it's a flurry of lab coats and hurry. 
                 Cadd9                    G 
They talk about budgets and taxpayers' money. 
G                 D                    Em/D 
   And I wag my tail and I be a good girl, 
                              Cadd9                                   G 
They forgot to walk me this morning they were too busy changing the world. 
G                        D                        Em/D 
   And I'm out from my cage and I'm trying to be brave, 
                       Cadd9                       G 
But the men they are sweating and now they're injecting, 


G              D       
   And as I awake 
                   Em/D 
I'm shocked and amazed. 
   Cadd9                                           
At the sheer, crushing empty. 


Cadd9          D                    Em/D    D            Cadd9                         
   And I look down on men's little earth, sitting there quietly, wondering what it's worth. 
              D               Em/D           D          Cadd9                          G 
And I drift away, but that's okay, there's more room to play out here than back in my cage. 


G                  D               Em/D 
And I know I will die, but that is fine, 
                     Cadd9              G 
Cause I know in some way I am helping mankind. 
                 D                                Em/D 
And I don't understand, cause I'm not as smart as them, 
              Cadd9                               G 
But even a parachute would have shown that they cared. 


G                   D              Em/D 
   And so I float on, space's only dog. 
              Cadd9              G 
Friend to the stars, pet of the sun. 
G                D                 Em/D 
From my little ship I dream of my bone, 
              Cadd9                          
A walk in the park, something comfy to sleep on. 


                   D                         Em/D 
And they named me Laika but I'd just like to say   
     D                  Cadd9                                                      
That I was born Little Curly and I'll die with that name. 
                     D                        Em/D 
Yeah they named me Laika but I'd just like to say 
       D           Cadd9                                          
 I was born Little Curly and I'll die with that name.
