4. The Universal

Intro:
A, C#m7 (4x)

A                   C#m7
This is the next century
A                   C#m7
Where the universal's free
E                  Bm

You can find it anywhere
E                     Bm
Yes the future's been sold
A                 C#m7
Every night we're gone
A                 C#m7
And to karaoke songs
E               Bm
We like to sing along
E                    Bm
Though the words are wrong

(chorus)

   Asus4 A Asus4 A Asus4 A Asus4 D     E
It really, really, really could happen
       Asus4 A Asus4 A Asus4 A Asus4 D     E
Yes it really, really, really could happen
         C#m
When the days they seem to fall through you
     D    C#m      Bm   E

Well just let them go
No one here is alone
Satellites in every home
Yes the universal's here
Here for everyone

Every paper that you read
Says tomorrow's your lucky day
Well, here's your lucky day

5. Coffee & TV

A/-----------------------------|
E/-----------------------------|

Graham play some strange chords during the verses. I saw the chords
from a live gig that I recorded. But I'll write 13 after them.
Here are the chords Graham plays in the song:

B13: (76x8xx)
Am13:(54x5xx) At least it’s what Graham plays, maybe.
E:   (022100) (Graham doesn’t play this at all. He plays GUITAR FILL 3.)
G13: (32x4xx)
F?:  (133200) Play with a low thumb.
A#13:(65x8xx)
C#:  (x46664)
A:   (577655) Play with a low thumb.
C#m: (x46654)

Graham often plays the bar chords with a low thumb. He doesn't play this
order all the way during the song. When you play the first two "13"
chords then bend the G string a little .But I think he uses some sort of
pedal that makes that "bending" sound.
I’m not sure if Damon plays an Am or an A.

Verse 1:
B
Do you feel like a chain store?
Am          E(GUITAR FILL 1)
Practically floored
G           F
One of many zeros
A#            C#
Kicked around bored
B
Your ears are full, but you're empty
Am               E(GUITAR FILL 1)
Holding out your heart
G                   F
To people who never really
A#           A
Care how you are (GUITAR FILL 2)

Chorus:
           C#m
So give me Coffee & TV
B(B13)A(GUITAR FILL 3)
History
     C#m
I've seen so much
    E(Here is where GUITAR FILL 4 enters)
I'm going blind
        A               B(B13)
And I'm braindead virtually

     C#m
'Cos Sociability
     B(B13)          A(GUITAR FILL 3)
It's hard enough for me
C#m                    E(Here is where GUITAR FILL 4 enters)
Take me away from this big bad world
    A              D
And agree to marry me
                A
So we can start over again

Verse 2:
B
Do you go to the country?
   Am         E(GUITAR FILL 1)
It isn't very far
G                       F
Those people there will hurt you
A#              C#
'Cos of who you are

B
Your ears are full of the language
        Am                  E(GUITAR FILL 1)
There's wisdom there you're sure
G                    F
'Til the words start slurring
A#                     A
And you can't find the door (GUITAR FILL 2)

Chorus:

I get up when I want, except on Wednesdays when I get rudely awaken by the
dustmen
I put my trousers on, have a cup of tea, and I think about leaving the
house
I feed the pigeons, I sometimes feed the sparrows too it gives me a feeling of
enormous well being
And then I'm happy of rht rest of the day safe in the knowledge there will
always be a bit of my heart devoted to it

10. Girls & Boys

(One chord sequence throughout= Gm C F Eb F#/F)

Streets like a jungle
So call the police
Following the herd
Down to Greece
on holiday

Love in the 90's
Is paranoid
On sunny beaches
Take your chances, looking for

GIRLS WHO ARE BOYS
WHO LOVE BOYS LIKE THEY'RE GIRLS
WHO DO GIRLS LIKE THEY'RE BOYS
ALWAYS SHOULD BE SOMEONE YOU REALLY LOVE

Avoiding all work
Cos there's none available
Like battery thinkers
Count their thoughts on 1 2 3 4 5 fingers

Nothing is wasted
Only reproduced
You get nasty blisters
Du bist sehr schon
But we haven't been introduced

He knows the swingers and their cavalry
Says he can get in anywhere for free
I began to go a little cross-eyed
And from this charmless man I just had to hide (away)

Lyrics:
He talks at speed, he gets nosebleeds
He doesn't see (Ooo-ooo-wooo-ooo-ooh) his days are tumbling
Down upon him (Ooo-ooo-ooh)
And yet he tries so hard to please
He's just so keen (Ooo-ooo-wooo-ooo-ooh) for you to listen (Ooo-ooo-ooh)
But no one's listening
And when you put it all together, there's the model of a charmless man

Watching afternoon repeats and the food he eats in the country
								E7   Eb
He takes all manner of pills and piles up analyst bills in the country
	      D						    A     Ab
Oh, it's like an animal farm that's the rural charm in the country

He's got morning glory and life's a different story
Everything's going Jackanory Touched with his own mortality
He's reading Balzac, knocking back Prozac
It's a helping hand that makes you feel wonderfully bland
Oh, it's a century's remedy For the faint at heart A new start
(Try the simple life)   He lives in a house A very big house In the country
He's got a fog in his chest So he needs a lot of rest In the country
He doesn't drink, smoke, laugh Takes herbal baths In the country
You should come to no harm On the animal farm In the country

Blow, blow me out, I am so sad, I don't know why

  (Tab by Danny Parrott)


E     Bm	        A   	     C#m
And into the sea go pretty England and me
C		   Bm		    E
Around the Bay of Biscay and home for tea
			Bm
Hit traffic on the Dogger Bank
A			       C#m
Up the Thames to find a taxi rank
C		Bm	     E
Sail on by with the tide and fall asleep

And the radio says

E	  D
This is a low
E	Am  Bm
But it won't hurt you
E		     D   E	      Am	Bm
When you're alone it will be there with you
C                       Bm7  E
Finding ways to stay solo

E			Bm
On the Tyne, Forth and Cromarty
A                              C#m
There is a low in the high Forties
	C                    Bm
And Saturdays locked away on the pier
	E
Not fast enough dear
	Bm                  A
On the Malin Head, Blackpool looks black and red
	   C	                Bm
And the Queen she's gone round the bend
                                    E
Jumped off Land's End

Chorus X2

17. For Tomorrow

B (x3)

C#min   B		 A   B     G#		    G
He's a twentieth century boy, with his hands on the rails

F      C	 D	  F		Fmaj7   E      G
Trying not to be sick again and holding on for tomorrow

C#min    B		A	B
London ice cracks on a seamless line,

G#min			Gdim5
He's hanging on for dear life

F	C		D	F  Fmaj7    E	    G
So we hold each other tightly and hold on for tomorrow

	Amin7  G  G  D
Singing la la la la la

F		G
Holding on for tomorrow

(repeat chords)

She's a twentieth century girl, with her hands on the wheel
Trying not to make him sick again
Seeing what she can borrow
London's so nice back in your seamless rhymes,
but we're lost on the Westway
So we hold each other tightly and hold on for tomorrow
Trying not to be sick again and holding on for tomorrow
She's a twentieth centruy girl, hanging on for dear life
So we hold each other tightly and hold on for tomorrow.
