Nothing Ever Happens    - Del Amitri  - tabbed by Lee Martin
 --------------------

F                                                 Dm
Post office clerks put up signs saying position closed
F                                                      Dm
And secretaries turn off typewriters and put on their coats
 Bb                   F
Janitors padlock the gates

      C                    Dm
For security guards to patrol
     Bb                        F
And bachelors phone up their friends for a drink

            C                       Bb
While the married ones turn on a chat show

Prechorus

       F                      Bb                 F
And they'll all be lonely tonight and lonely tomorrow

Verse 2

F							Dm
Gentlemen time please you know we can't serve any more

F							Dm
Now the traffic lights stop when theres nothing to go

Bb				     F
And by five o clock everythings dead

C			    Dm
And every third car is a cab

Bb				      F
And ignorant people sleep in there beds

	   C				   Dm
Like the dope white mice in the college lab


Chorus
 F            Bb       F                 Bb
Nothing ever happens, nothing happens at all
     Dm                     Bb
The needle returns to the start of the song
       C                      Bb
And we all sing along like before

           F                Bb                 F
And we'll all be lonely tonight and lonely tomorrow

F					           Dm
Telephone exchanges click while theres nobody there

F							Dm
The martians could land in the car park and no-one would care

Bb					F
Close-circuit cameras in department stores

C				Dm
Shoot the same movie every night

Bb							F
And the stars of these films neither died nor get killed

	C			     Dm
Just to survive constant action replay


Chorus
 F            Bb       F                 Bb
Nothing ever happens, nothing happens at all
     Dm                     Bb
The needle returns to the start of the song
       C                      Bb
And we all sing along like before

           F                Bb                 F
And we'll all be lonely tonight and lonely tomorrow


Then before verse 4 there's a wee instrumentally bit over the chords:

Gm  Dm  Gm  Dm  G  F  G  F

F						Dm
Bill hoardings advertise products that nobody needs

F						Dm
While angry from Manchester writes to complain about ll the repeats on tv

Bb		   	    F
And computer terminals report some gains

C		     		Dm
On the value of copper and tin

Bb				F
While American businessmen snap up van Goths

	C			Dm
For the price of a hospital wing


F            Bb       F                 Bb
Nothing ever happens, nothing happens at all
     Dm                     Bb
The needle returns to the start of the song-
       C                      Bb
And we all sing along like before

F            Bb       F                 Bb
Nothing ever happens, nothing happens at all


Dm					     Bb
They'll burn down the synagogues at six o clock

	C			Bb
And we'll all go along like before


           F                Bb                 F
And we'll all be lonely tonight and lonely tomorrow
