WELCOME TO THE WORKING WEEK
Elvis Costello

               E                            G#m7
Now that your picture's in the paper bein' rythmic'lly admired
            C#m7                      F#
And you can have anyone that you have ever desired,
A                             B
All you gotta tell me now is why, why, why why.

A                      C#m
Welcome to the working week.
        A
Oh, I know it don't thrill you.
   E
I hope it don't kill you.
A              C#m      F#
Welcome to the working week.
          A                                    B
You gotta do it till you're through it so you better get to it.

E                         G#m
All of your fam'ly had to kill to survive,
C#m                                 F#
And they're still waitin' for their big day to arrive.
    A                                B
But if they knew how I felt, they'd bury me alive.

A                      C#m
Welcome to the working week.
        A
Oh, I know it don't thrill you.
   E
I hope it don't kill you.
A              C#m      F#
Welcome to the working week.
          A                                    B
You gotta do it till you're through it so you better get to it.

G#m                           C#m
I hear you sayin', "Hey, the city's all right,"
         F#m        G#m         A     B
When you only read about it in books.
G#m                          C#m
Spend all your money gettin' so convinced
          A                     B
That you never even bother to look
E                            G#m                     C#m
Sometimes I wonder if we're livin' in the same land.
                F#
Why d'you wanna be my friend
        A                          B
When I feel like a juggler runnin' outta hands?

A                      C#m
Welcome to the working week,
A                              E
Oh ah, welcome to the working week.

From: jstaton@math.lsa.umich.edu (Joseph L Staton)

The first verse hit the chords once each and let's them ring-- the first
chorus and after the chords are struck once on the first downbeat followed
by two half beats (a "one      and two" syncopated count if you wasted
years as a high-school band-nazi)

Welcome to the Working Week-  Elvis Costello

Verse:   (tacit until picture)
                        E                      G#m
Now that your picture?s in the paper bein' publicly admired
         C#m
You can have anyone
               F#
That you have ever desired
 A                          B
All you gotta do is tell me why, why, why, why...


Chorus
 A                       E
Welcome to the workin' week
       A
Oh, I know it don?t thrill you
       E
I hope it don't kill you
        A                             F#
Welcome to the workin' week
                 A
You gotta do it 'til you do it
              B
So you'd better get to it


Verse 2:
Not like your family had to kill to survive
They're still waitin' for their
Big day to arrive
If they knew how I felt
They'd bury me alive

Chorus

Bridge
    G#                                     C#m
I hear you sayin' that the city?s all right
            F#m                  G#m             A          B
But you've only read about it in books
       G#                                  C#m
Spent all your money gettin' so convinced
                           A                         B
That you never even bothered to learn

Verse 3:
Not like we're even livin' in the same land
Why you want to be my friend
When I'm actin' like a juggler
Runnin' outta hands

       A                              E
Welcome to the workin' week
                      A                               E
Well now, welcome to the workin' week
