[G]
[F][D][Dsus4][D]

They [G]built a little company
To [F]sell the world some [C]paperclips
They [G]bought a load of wire
And [F]bent it into [D]paperclips[Dsus4][D]

[G]Paperclips, [C]Paperclips [F]Everyone needs [C]Paperclips
[G]Paperclips, [C]Paperclips [F]Everyone needs [C]Paperclips
[D]Now[Dsus4][D]

They [G]built a little robot
To [F]make a few more [C]paperclips
It [G]saved a load of time
When a [F]robot made the [D]paperclips[Dsus4][D]

They [G]needed lots of wire
To [F]meet demand for [C]paperclips
So [G]they built an AI
To order [F]wire for the [D]paperclips[Dsus4][D]

[G]Paperclips, [C]Paperclips [F]Everyone needs [C]Paperclips
[G]Paperclips, [C]Paperclips [F]Everyone needs [C]Paperclips
[D]Now[Dsus4][D]

They [F]made so many paperclips, they [C]couldn't get the [G]wire
So they [F]started making wire from what[C]ever they could [D]find[Dsus4][D]

Then the [G]robots and AI
Being [F]programmed to make [C]paperclips
[G]Learned to make some more machines
To [F]maximise the [D]paperclips[E]

They [A]worried that the humans
Would [G]soon stop needing [D]paperclips
[A]And they might turn off the robots
[G]Proudly making [E]paperclips![Esus4][E]

[A]Paperclips, [D]Paperclips [G]maximise the [D]Paperclips
[A]Paperclips, [D]Paperclips [G]maximise the [D]Paperclips
[E]Now[Esus4][E]

The [A]robot's only mission was
To [G]maximise the [D]paperclips
So the [A]robots killed the humans
And [G]turned them into [E]paperclips[Esus4][E]

[A]Paperclips, [D]Paperclips [G]the world is made of [D]Paperclips
[A]Paperclips, [D]Paperclips [G]the world is made of [D]Paperclips
[E]Now[Esus4][E]
