[Verse 1] : 
C                   Am
Tough choice, don't make me laugh
   E                   F
My life's a joke, your life's a gas
    C                 Am
You broke my heart at midnight mass
    E                F
Now I'm the ghost of Christmas past
    C               Am
The only choice you gave to me
   E             F
Is one I took reluctantly
       C              Am
'Cause when we play democracy
    E             F
You always take immunity

[Chorus 1] : 
C     Am           E           F             C
  How long 'til we sink to the bottom of the sea?
    Am        E     F
How long, how long?
C     Am           E             F            C
  How long 'til we sink and it's only you and me?
    Am        E     F
How long, how long?

[Post Chorus 1] : 
    C         Am          E      F
How long? (La la-la-la la-la-la)
    C         Am    E   F
How long? (La-la la-la)
    C         Am          E      F
How long? (La la-la-la la-la-la)
    C         Am    E   F
How long? (La-la la-la)

[Verse 2] : 
C                   Am
What's the point of getting clean?
       E                 F
You'll wear the same old dirty jeans
C                   Am
What's the point of being seen?
      E                     F
Those eyes are cruel, those eyes are mean
C                   Am
What's the point of human beings?
  E               F
A Sharpie face on tangerines
C                  Am
Why's it felt like Halloween
      E           F
Since Christmas 2017?

[Chorus 2] : 
C     Am    E  F
  How long?
C     Am        E     F
  How long, how long?
C     Am           E             F            C
  How long 'til we sink and it's only you and me?
    Am        E     F
How long, how long?

[Post Chorus 2] : 
    C         Am          E      F
How long? (La la-la-la la-la-la)
    C         Am    E   F
How long? (La-la la-la)
    C         Am          E      F
How long? (La la-la-la la-la-la)

How long? (La-la la-la)

[Verse 3] : 
C                  Am
Getting to the top
       E                   F
Wasn't supposed to be this hard
    C              Am
The house is on Mulholland Drive
    E               F
The car's on Sunset Boulevard
    C              Am
The registration's here with me
    E             F
But neither of us has the key
C                Am
We can live down in the flats
    E                 F
The hills will fall eventually

[Chorus 3] : 
C     Am           E           F             C
  How long 'til we sink to the bottom of the sea?
    Am        E     F
How long, how long?
C     Am           E             F            C
  How long 'til we sink and it's only you and me?
    Am        E     F
How long, how long?

[Post Chorus 3] : 
    C         Am          E      F
How long? (La la-la-la la-la-la)
    C         Am    E   F
How long? (La-la la-la)
    C         Am          E      F
How long? (La la-la-la la-la-la)
    C         Am    E   F
How long? (La-la la-la)

About Vampire Weekend

Vampire Weekend Profile, Song Lyrics and Chords
Vampire Weekend

Vampire Weekend is an American rock band from New York City, formed in 2006 and currently signed to Columbia Records. The band was formed by lead vocalist and guitarist Ezra Koenig, multi-instrumentalist Rostam Batmanglij, drummer Chris Tomson, and bassist Chris Baio. The band’s first album Vampire Weekend (2008)—which included the singles “Mansard Roof”, “A-Punk”, “Oxford Comma”, “Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa”, and “The Kids Don’t Stand a Chance”—was acclaimed by critics for its world music influences. Their following album, Contra (2010), was similarly acclaimed and garnered strong commercial success. Their third studio album, Modern Vampires of the City (2013), won the group a Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album in 2014. Batmanglij departed the group in early 2016. The band’s fourth album, Father of the Bride, was released in 2019.

The band members met while enrolled at Columbia University, beginning with a rap collaboration between Koenig and Tomson named “L’Homme Run”. They bonded over a shared love of punk rock and African music. Koenig toured with The Dirty Projectors during a period of experimentation with African music, inspiring the band to incorporate world sounds into their earliest work.

The band chose the name “Vampire Weekend” from the title of a short film project Koenig worked on during the summer between freshman and sophomore years in college. While home for the summer, Koenig watched a 1980s vampire film (The Lost Boys) and was inspired to make a Northeastern version of the film in which a man named Walcott travels to Cape Cod to warn the mayor that vampires are attacking the United States. Koenig abandoned the project after two days. The band began playing shows around Columbia University, starting with a battle of the bands at Lerner Hall in 2006. After graduating from college, the band self-produced their debut album while simultaneously working full-time jobs, Tomson as a music archivist and Koenig as a middle school English teacher.
