Anthony John Clarke - Smooth Old Talk



[Intro]
D7  G  C  G  D7  G

[Verse 1]
                        D7
I write songs about politicians
G                C
Corruption and sedition
   G                          D7
My songs they tiptoe over the line
   G          D7
My lecture in aptness
   G              C
My political incorrectness
    G                D7              G
Mea culpa, all these songs, they are mine


[Verse 2]
  B7
I may reach a crescendo
       Em
With a touch of innuendo
  A                     D
I throw in an item of news
            G               D7
There'll be songs of deep depression
       G       C
Like a karaoke session
      G          D7         G
And I might do a song about you


[Interlude]
C  G  D7  G


[Verse 3]
                               D7
There'll be one for my friend, Lorna
    G                     C
She lives just 'round the corner
    G                              D7
Now Lorna only ever listens to the blues
       G                   D7
I have one for a friend in Chester
      G                  C
Whose particular friend, Lester
         G              D7          G
Has just left him to go back on the booze


[Verse 4]
     B7
This over way inquisition
       Em
I'm an incompetent magician
  A                       D
I fail to saw my woman in two
      G           D7
While acting arty-tarty
        G                   D7
At some late-night tinker's party
     G             D7         G
So I might do this song about you


[Chorus 1]
                        D7                G
But I want to know what brings you here tonight
                                      D7
I want to know what brings you here tonight
         G
You see, I'm up here, you're over there
          C
Well, you could be home in your easy-chair
G                   D7                G
I want to know what brings you here tonight


[Chorus 2]
            C
Was it some smooth old talk?
           G
Or did you just take the dog for a big long walk?
   C                                  D7
Or did you just sneak out behind your wife?
N.C.
Oh no, you would not do that
G
I want to know, I want to know
C
I want to know, I want to know
G                   D7                G
I want to know what brings you here tonight


[Instrumental]
C  G  D7  G   (3x)


[Verse 5]
                      D7
Singing on right, for nada
      G                  C
Being seven years old in Ireland
      G                            D7
And I won the great big kish and romance
     G                       D7
That time in the café on the coast road
       G                   C
When delicious Sister Mary Joseph
       G            D7              G                     B7
Sidled up to me and begged me for a dance (there ye are)


[Verse 6]

There was the pretty little acrobat
            Em
She gave me peppermint tea and a pretty little hat
A                                D
She did fifteen cartwheels on my floor
         G             D7
That's a topic not too cosy
      G                     D7
For a big jack-queen called Rosy
      G              D7                   G
Who's never heard or cried, "Collect them all!"


[Chorus 1]
                        D7                G
But I want to know what brings you here tonight
                                      D7
I want to know what brings you here tonight
         G
You see, I'm up here, you're over there
          C
Well, you could be home in your easy-chair
G                   D7                G
I want to know what brings you here tonight


[Chorus 2]
            C
Was it some smooth old talk?
G
Hey, take the dog for a walk
   C                                  D7
Or did you just sneak out behind your wife?
N.C.
For the fifth time this week, baby
G
I want to know, I want to know
C
I want to know for sure
G                   D7                G      C  G  D7
I want to know what brings you here tonight
