Verse 1:
Bb           C        F                  G
The day they found me, I hadn't yet been played
Bb        C        F                G
Inside my workshop behind the old arcade
Bb         C
Electric desires
      F              G
Had unraveled all my wires
Bb             C           F         G
Now I'm in the box for safekeeping
Bb         C         F             G
The news reporters reported that I died
Bb         C           F           G
But all my organs were living on inside
Bb               C
Circuit board to brain
         F                G
With two lungs collecting change
Bb            C            F        G
One big human heart gently beeping
 
Chorus:
Bb        C         F            G
You can't win me, I can't be beat
Bb      C           A              B5 A5 G5 F5
I won't hurt you, unless you cheat
Bb        C        F              G
You can't see me behind the screen
Bb        C        A              B5 A5 G5 F5
I'm half human and half machine
 
Verse 2:
Bb            C              F               G
Thank God for business, they let me take the floor
Bb         C             F              G
I stood so proudly, like I was going to war
Bb             C             F             G
Players soon appeared, and I quickly was revered
Bb                C               F             G
This must be what love would have felt like
Bb       C            F                G
Such dedication, they came from miles away
Bb           C                F                  G
With eyes so piercing, they'd wait their turn to play
Bb              C              F              G
Perfect patient lines, because I was in their minds
Bb             C      F              C      Dm
I could do whatever I felt like -Whatever I felt like-
 
Chorus:
Bb        C         F            G
You can't win me, I can't be beat
Bb      C           A                 B5 A5 G5 F5
I won't hurt you, unless you cheat
Bb        C        F              G
You can't see me behind the screen
Bb        C        A                  B5 A5 G5 F5
I'm half human and half machine
 
Verse 3:
Dm            G
I'm happy for years and years
   Dm                G                    C
And only eaten the occasional maintenance man
                   F
Only driving a few kids to madness
C                     F                     Am
Maybe they were predisposed to madness, who knows?
       E
I only want to have fun
Am                             E
But now they're telling me my days here are done
F                           G
Cause there's a little tiny box they make in Japan
F                          G
And pretty soon it's gonna fit in your hand
Bb               C           F            G
It's getting lonely, it's getting hard to breathe
Bb            C       F                     G
The arcade's empty, I think it's Christmas Eve
Bb               C               F              G
Someone's broken in, now they're painting on my skin
Bb              C         F            G
Breaking me and taking my quarters
Bb            C           F            G
Bashing in my face with a crowbar
Bb             C          F            G
Kicking me and pushing me over
Bb              C                      G       Bb
Now they see my blood on their sneakers

Interlude:: G
 
Chorus:
Bb        C         F            G
You can't win me, I can't be beat
Bb      C           A                 B5 A5 G5 F5
I won't hurt you, unless you cheat
Bb        C        F              G
You can't see me behind the screen
Bb        C        A                  B5 A5 G5 F5
I'm half human and half machine
