The change was quite subtle and the mood low key
The sky was overcast, you could hardly see
And the creatures all boogied to a different frequency
The day finger pickers took over the world, yea

Yea, It happened one day, way back in the sticks
He picked up his guitar, but he had no pick
So with just a thumb and two fingers, he made up some licks
And finger pickers took over the world

So, that's how it happened that wonderful day
With just a thumb and two fingers, he started to play, yea
Without even knowin, he was showin the way
And finger pickers took over this world
Yes they did

I'll play a little harmony
Oh yes Chet

So stop look and listen, it'll happen, you'll see
You'll wanna join in and play fingerpickingly
And people once laughed at this non-conformity
But finger pickers took over the world

So all the people were finally set free
They all hung out and interacted fretfully
And the air began to viberate with sweet tormality
The day finger pickers took over the world

So that's how it happened that wonderful day
With just a thumb and two fingers, Chet started to play
(Ah, shut up)
Without even knowin, he was showin the way
And finger pickers took over the world
Like this

Aah, let me pick it with ya
Over to you Chet
Yea
Do do do do do do do do
Yea

So, that's how it happened that wonderful day
With just a thumb and two fingers, he started to play,
Without even knowin, he was showin the way
