Chords And Lyrics Together

As one YouTube commenter said, this song’s lyrics are basically the “quiet, hopeless version of We Didn’t Start The Fire.”

So learn the lyrics. Even if you don’t start the campfire, you’ll want to be able to properly infuse a little despair and cynicism in the atmosphere, won’t you?


Intro

Verse 1
Stunning 8K resolution meditation app
In honour of the revolution it’s half off at the Gap
Deadpool’s self-awareness, loving parents, harmless fun
The backlash to the backlash to the thing that’s just begun


Chorus
There it is again, that funny feeling
That funny feeling
There it is again, that funny feeling
That funny feeling

Verse 2
The surgeon general’s pop-up shop, Robert Iger’s face
Discount Etsy agitprop, Bugle’s take on race
Female Colonel Sanders, easy answers, civil war
The whole world at your fingertips, the ocean at your door
The live-action Lion King, the Pеpsi halftime show
Twenty thousand years of this, sеven more to go
Carpool Karaoke, Steve Aoki, Logan Paul
A gift shop at the gun range, a mass shooting at the mall

Chorus
There it is again, that funny feeling
That funny feeling
There it is again, that funny feeling
That funny feeling

Verse 3
Reading Pornhub’s terms of service, going for a drive
And obeying all the traffic laws in Grand Theft Auto V
Full agoraphobic, losing focus, cover blown
A book on getting better hand-delivered by a drone
Total disassociation, fully out your mind
Googling “derealisation,” hating what you find
That unapparent summer air in early fall
The quiet comprehending of the ending of it all

Chorus
There it is again, that funny feeling
That funny feeling
There it is again, that funny feeling
That funny feeling

Bridge
Hey, what can ya say?
We were overdue
But it’ll be over soon
You wait
Hey, what can ya say?
We were overdue
But it’ll be over soon
just wait (bah-duh-DUH, bah-duh-DUH, bah-duh-duh-duh-duh-duh)
Hey, what can ya say?
We were overdue
But it’ll be over soon
You wait (bah-duh-DUH, bah-duh-DUH, ba da hey)
Hey, what can ya say?
We were overdue
But it’ll be over soon
You wait (bah-duh-DUH, bah-duh-DUH, bah-duh-duh-duh-duh-duh)

Best Video Lessons

If you’re feeling like making a little effort to learn this piece, watch Bo’s official video. It’s easy to see what he’s doing with both hands on the guitar as the video features him sitting on a stool, strumming away.

But if a feeling of nihilistic ennui weighs on your soul to the point that you couldn’t care less about spending a single calorie on learning something new, check out the following videos. They all break the song down so well that you won’t even have to pop an antidepressant to dissipate the hopelessness-induced mental fog:

FAQ

A collage of post its with question signs on them

This little song might raise some hard-core existential questions that I’m not qualified to answer. But other than that, here are a few that you might be wondering about.

Did Phoebe Bridgers cover Bo Burnham?

Yes. She covered this very song. In my opinion, her version gives it a whole different feeling. While Bo’s version accentuates the comic-sarcastic vibe of the lyrics, Phoebe’s attenuates it a bit with a more mellow and even kind of sweet approach.

How do you play “that funny feeling” by Phoebe Bridgers?

It’s pretty similar to Bo’s version, but there are some variations, like placing the capo on the 4th fret. Watch this video for further details:

What key is That funny feeling by bo burnham?

The song is in the key of G.

Can you play That Funny Feeling without a capo?

Absolutely. Just play the same open chords that you would play with a capo. The song will be in the key of G instead of A. Very practical if you have a thicker voice than Bo’s.
