This song is off of the "Books" EP.  It has a lot of instruments playing a lot of
different things, but here are the main chords, and the bass tabs can be found on this site
too.  Enjoy!


F#m
Say what you want and leave your shyness home,
Do what you want and write a little poem.
Leave it for her and live another day,
And you should *leave* it for her the girl around the way.

F#m
Write down a list of things you want to do,
Leave it in work because you want to live a little,
Pick up the girl in someone's borrowed mini,
Take her to dinner, use her boyfriend's money.

A                 C#
Hey lady, put the phone down,
       F#m

     A               C#

F#m
Planning a break is such a tricky thing
Because you move to the country, she comes back again
And then you move to the city but she goes abroad
Is she telling you something, is she getting bored?

F#m
I'll make a rough plan to sleep around,
I'm in a rut I need a change,
I'm a lazy rat if I am honest
My bold change of tack will fade out with the summer I've got no appetite and all the
girls are bummers

Em              G
My baby doesn't look at me
          A
The way I want her to look
            G  F#m    A
She doesn't comprend
Em               G
My baby's got it going on
            A                             G     F#m
She's got a friend hid in every street in this town
  G                          C B Am G#m
           Am
I want to go out but there's nobody home I'll go on my own
Am
Thus starts the lonely walking
Dm                              E                    Am
There's always too much talking I should have stayed home
Am
She starts her cool caressing
Dm
The kid, she starts undressing
E                  Am G F E
I should've stayed home
Am
The dj's picking up speed
Dm
That's something I just don't need
E                  Am
I should've stayed home
Am
The gossip's bearing down on me,
Dm                           E
The kids are pairing off in front of me.
                    Am G F E
I should've stayed home
E                   Am G F E
I should've stayed home
                 Am
I think I'll go home

(Continues with G, B, Em, and C until the last verse)


Hey lady, meet my mum and dad
You're a strange aberration
In this land of potted plants and boxlike houses
Where the girls like mouses
Breathe a long sigh of resignation
You resign your self to keep on growing
Like the seeds you're sowing
You're a strange apparition In this land of grammar schools and gala days
The ladies set in their ways
You had a long conversation With a kid next door
He's a little slow
But in your favour, it shows
Cancel all operations
Tell your friends to move out to the sticks.

Em                     B
Listen lady, leave the boy home
       C
Cancel all operations
          B                                Em
Tell your friends there's more to you than this.


BAM, it's a lot of fun on a piano.  For any other tricky B&S I would hit up this site:
http://www.missprint.org/sinister/chords.html

It didn't have this song, and a few others, but it's got the majority.  If you would
like to request another B&S song you can't figure out, I'd be happy to help!
