Intro ? D (x4)
D                                                   Bm
Post office clerks put up signs saying position closed
D                                                         Bm
And secretaries turn off typewriters and put on their coats
 G                       D
Janitors padlock the gates

         A                   Bm
For security guards to patrol
            G                     D
And bachelors phone up their friends for a drink

                     A                   G
While the married ones turn on a chat show

Prechorus

       D                     G                   D
And they'll all be lonely tonight and lonely tomorrow

Verse 2

D					          Bm
Gentlemen time please you know we can't serve any more

D					Bm
Now the traffic lights stop when theres nothing to go

G		                  D
And by five o clock everythings dead

A		         Bm
And every third car is a cab

G			          D
And ignorant people sleep in there beds

	   A		                  Bm
Like the dope white mice in the college lab


Chorus
 D             G          D                  G
Nothing ever happens, nothing happens at all
         Bm                             G
The needle returns to the start of the song
            A                  G
And we all sing along like before

           D               G                    D
And we'll all be lonely tonight and lonely tomorrow

D					  Bm
Telephone exchanges click while theres nobody there

D					            Bm
The martians could land in the car park and no-one would care

G				D
Close-circuit cameras in department stores

A			      Bm
Shoot the same movie every night

G                                                                                 D
And the stars of these films neither died nor get killed

             A			   Bm
Just to survive constant action replay


Chorus
 D              G         D                G
Nothing ever happens, nothing happens at all
         Bm                  G
The needle returns to the start of the song
         A                     G
And we all sing along like before

           D               G                    D
And we'll all be lonely tonight and lonely tomorrow

D				               Bm
Bill hoardings advertise products that nobody needs

D				                Bm
While angry from Manchester writes to complain about all the repeats on tv

G		              D
And computer terminals report some gains

A		     	   Bm
On the value of copper and tin

G			        D
While American businessmen snap up van Goths

            A			Bm
For the price of a hospital wing

Chorus
D               G         D                G
Nothing ever happens, nothing happens at all
          Bm                            G
The needle returns to the start of the song-
        A                      G
And we all sing along like before

D              G        D                 G
Nothing ever happens, nothing happens at all


Bm				            G
They'll burn down the synagogues at six o clock

             A			   G
And we'll all go along like before

And we'll all be lonely tonight and lonely tomorrow
