4.-BALACLAVA--------------------------------------------------------------|
--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Ok so there is 2 tabs already for this but this is my version with the 
corrections and bits missed out by the others. I've made this tab in a way 
so that any guitarist can learn this song no matter what level, to help 
learn this song it helps if you have the song on whilst trying to learn 
certain bits for timing etc.
 
 
Intro (Bass only)
 
 
Intro lyrics:
 
Running off over next doors garden before the hour is done
It's more a question of feeling than it is a question of fun
The confidence is the balaclava I'm sure you'll baffle 'em good
But the end in reek of salty cheeks and runny make up alone! Oh well...

E|--7-------5---3----7-------5---3----|
 
 
 
Verse 1:
 
Lyrics:
 
Blood runs down the face of a boy bewildered and scorned
And you find yourself in a scurmage where you wish you'd never been born
An you tie to yourself to the tracks and there isn't no going back
And it's wrong wrong wrong but we'll do it anyway cause we love a bit  of 
trouble!

Lyrics
 
Are you pulling her from a burning building or throwing her to the sharks?
You can only hope that the ending is as pleasurable as the start
The confidence is the balaclava I'm sure you'll baffle them straight
And it's wrong wrong wrong and she can hardly wait.

Who's the crooks in this....CRIME!?

You used to get it in your fishnet

Now you only get it in your nightdress,

It started all the naughty nights with niceness,

Now they’re in a very common crisis,
                           E
Everything’s in order in a black hole
                             C#m
Is anything as pretty as her past though,
B                  G#                           F#m
That Bloody Mary's dripping in Tabasco
                              B
Remember when he used to be a rascal

                  F#m
Oh the boy's a slag
                     B
The best you ever had
                     F#m
The best you ever had
          B                     F#m
Is just a memory and those dreams
               B
And as daft as they seem
               F#m
And as daft as they seem
                  A
My love, when you dream them up

                                  E
Flicking through a little book of sex tips
                            C#m
Remember when the boys were all electric
B                       G#m                   F#m
Now when she tells she’s gonna get it
                                     B
I'm guessing that she'd finally just forget it
                            E
Figures for not getting sentimental
                              C#m
Said she wasn’t going but she went still
B             G#                         F#m
Now she gets her fella to be gentle

was it her knickerbockers or a bitten pencil(?)

                F#m
Oh that boy’s a slag
                   B
The best you ever had
                   F#m
The best you ever had
          B                F#m
Is just a memory and those dreams

And as daft as they seem
               F#m
And as daft as they seem
                 B                G#
My love when you dream them up, oh no

               C#m
Where did you go
               F#m
Where did you go
               G#m
Where did you go
    F#m
Woah oh

	C#m
You’re falling about
      F#m              B               E
You took a left off Laspark Lane

6.ONLY ONES WHO KNOW----------------------------------------------------|
------------------------------------------------------------------------|

This is the most beautiful song of their new album "Favorite Worst Nightmare". Enjoy it!

==Intro==

F    A7    Dm    F    Bb    Gm    F    A7    Dm    F    Bb    Gm    F




==1st verse==

      F                  A7                   Dm
In a foreign place, the saving grace was the feeling
     F                               Bb
And that it was a heart that he was stealing
           Gm                       F
Oh he was ready to impress and the fierce excitement
     A7                        Dm
The eyes are bright he couldnt wait to get away
  F                            Bb
I bet the juliet was just the icing on the cake
Am              Gm
Make no mistake no




==Chorus==

Bb                               Bbm                        Am
And even if somehow we could have   shown you the place you wanted
         D7                                    Gm                Bbm
Well I'm sure you could have made it that bit better on your own




==2nd verse==

       F              A7                        Dm
And I bet she told a million people that she'd stay in touch
      F                           Bb
Well all the little promises they dont mean much
             Gm
When theres memories to be made
       F                   A7                Dm
And I hope you're holding hands by new years eve
      F                         Bb
They made it far too easy to believe
            Am                          Gm
That true romance cant be acheived these days




==Chorus==

Bb                               Bbm                        Am
And even if somehow we could have   shown you the place you wanted
         D7                                    Gm               
Well I'm sure you could have made it that bit better on your own
            Bbm
You are the only ones who know




==Outro==

F    A7    Dm    F    Bb    Am    Gm    Gm    Gm    F

10.THE BAD THING--------------------------------------------|
------------------------------------------------------------|


Chorus:

Em        Bm
  Do the bad thing
Am             G       F#  
  Take off your wedding ring
Em                Bm
 But it wont make it that much easier
Am                     G F# 
 It might make it worse


Verse1:         (rhythm |Dm 2 3 C| A 2 3 4|Dm 2 3 C|A 2 3 4|

Dm                                     
The night's like a whirlwind
C              A
Somebody's girlfriend is talking to me
Dm                       C                         A
But it's alright , she's saying that he's not that he's gonna slap me
                          A
Or try to attack me, he's not the jealous type

BRIDGE:  heavy downstrokes!

Dm                                                     Am
I've been before and all these capers makers to the floor
 Dm                                                     Am
Then to ignore, she's talking but I'm not entirely sure

Dm Am, Dm Am, Dm Am, F# G

CHORUS: (same progression Em, Bm, Am, G F# x2)

Do the bad thing
Take off your wedding ring
But it wont make it that much easier
It might make it worse

Verse2: 

Dm (strum once, then bass only!)
Somebody's partner is talking to me
But I don't that is what she isn't
She murmurs things to confirm the tragedy is true
And I knew how could she not she could have anyone she wants
And I'm struggling to think of an immediate response

Bridge: Dm Am

Like I don't mind
Be a big mistake for you to wait and help me waste your time
Really love it's fine
Said really love it's fine

Dm Am x 3 F# G

FINAL CHORUS: same chords as original chorus, Em. Bm, Am, G F#

And the first time it occurred that there was something to destroy
I knew before the invitation that there was this ploy
Oh but she carried on suggesting
I struggled to refuse
She said it's the red wine this time
But that is no excuse

end on Em

I'm going back to 505 if it's a 7 hours flight or a 45 minute drive
In my imagination you're waiting lying on your side with your hands between your thighs

Dm Em

Dm                           Em
Stop and wait a sec when you look at me like that
           Dm                       Em
My darling what did you expect? I probably still adore you
          Dm                         Em
With your hands around my neck Or I did last time I checked

Dm Em

    Dm                      Em                                       Dm
I'm not shy of a spark The knife twists at the thought that I should fall short of the mark
   Em                              Dm
Frightened by the bite no it's no harsher than the bark
   Em                          Dm                      Em
A middle of adventure, such a perfect place to start

           Dm                   Em
I'm going back to 505 If it's a 7 hour flight
     Dm                 Em                             Dm
Or a 45 minute drive In my imagination you're waiting lying on your side
           Em                       Dm Em
With your hands between your thighs

                  Dm       
But I crumble completely when you cry
    Em                                  Dm
It seems like once again you've had to greet me with goobye
     Em                         Dm           
I'm always just about to go and spoil the surprise
         Em                            Dm   Em
Take my hands off of your eyes too soon

           Dm                   Em
I'm going back to 505 If it's a 7 hour flight
     Dm                 Em                             Dm
Or a 45 minute drive In my imagination you're waiting lying on your side
           Em                              Dm     Em
With your hands between your thighs And a smile
