[Intro]
| Dm7 | C/D | Dm7 | C/D |
| Dm7 | C/D | Dm7 | C/D |
| G/A | A | G/A | A |


[Verse]
Dm7               C/D
 Like father like son
    Dm7
Not flesh nor fish nor bone
  C/D
A red rag hangs from an open mouth
 Dm7                            C/D
Alive at both ends but a little dead in the middle
  Dm7                        C/D
A-tumbling and a-bumbling he will go
G/A                      A
All the kings horses and all the kings men
      G/A                        A
Could never put a smile on that face


[Verse]
       Dm7
He’s a sly one, he's a shy one
         C/D
Wouldn’t you be too
Dm7                          C/D
Scared to be left all on his own
Dm7                          C/D
Hasn't a, hasn't a friend to play with, the ugly duckling
    Dm7                                  C/D
The pressure on, the bubble will burst before our eyes
G/A                 A
All the while in perfect time
              G/A
His tears are falling on the ground
           A
But if you don't stand up you don't stand a chance


[Interlude]
| D    E/D  D7 |  D G/D   | D A/D | G/D |            
                 | D    E/D  D7 |  D G/D   | D A/D | G/D Gm/D   Gm6/D |
You don’t stand a chance                                   5/4

Am/D         Dm7 | 
 Go a little faster now
    Bb/D               Gm/D  |  Dm7add11  Dm7  |
You might get there in time              (break)


[Middle 8]
F        Am7           Dm7
 Mirror, mirror on the wall
    Eb                              Bb           F
His heart was broken long before he ever came to you
          Am7        Dm7
Stop your tears from falling
    Eb                                 Bb            F
The trail they leave is very clear for all to see at night
       Am7   [ D ]
All to see at night


[Interlude]
        | D    E/D  D7 |  D G/D   | D A/D | G/D |
(... at night)
               | D    E/D  D7 |  D G/D   | D A/D | G/D |
They don’t have eyes


[Verse]
Dm7                  C/D
   In season, out of season
           Dm7                                C/D
What's the difference when you don't know the reason
   Dm7                         C/D
In one hand bread, the other a stone
Dm7                    C/D
 The hunter enters the forest
G/A                          A
All are not huntsmen who can blow the huntsman’s horn
               G/A                             A
By the look of this one you’ve not got much to fear


[Verse]
Dm7                            C/D
Here I am, I'm very fierce and frightening
Dm7                       C/D
Come to match my skill to yours
    Dm7                       C/D
Now listen here, listen to me, don't you run away now
  Dm7                             C/D
I am a friend; I'd really like to play with you
       G/A                    A
Making noises my little furry friend would make
     G/A                                   A
I’ll trick him, then I'll kick him into my sack
           A                             [ D ]
You better watch out ... You better watch out


[Interlude]
| D    E/D  D7 |  D G/D   | D A/D | G/D |            
| D    E/D  D7 |  D G/D   | D A/D | G/D Gm/D   Gm6/D |
                                        5/4

Am/D                Dm7 | 
 I've got you, I've got you
       Bb/D       Gm/D  |  Dm7add11  Dm7  |
You’ll never get away         (break)


[Middle 8]
F        Am7       Dm7
 Walking home that night
    Eb                                Bb            F
The sack across my back, the sound of sobbing on my shoulder
     Am7         Dm7
When suddenly it stopped
         Eb                             Bb                  F
I opened up the sack; all that I had: a pool of bubbles and tears
       Am7    [ D ]
Just a pool of tears


[Interlude]
       | D    E/D  D7 |  D G/D   | D A/D | G/D |
(... of tears)
              | D    E/D  D7 |  D G/D   | D A/D | G/D A/D |
Just a pool of tears


[Coda]
Bsus4    B             F#m
  All in all you are a very dying race
A                    E
Placing trust upon a cruel world
                  B
You never had the things you thought you should have had
    F#m
And you'll not get them now
            A
And all the while in perfect time
               E/B            B
Your tears are falling on the ground


[Outro] (just the basics; keyboard plays a lot of chords here)
