        John Cale                     Helen of Troy
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Em | G                              |    Em    
Oh,    did you see him standing in the street 
| G                           | Em    
Hmmm, he looked so big, you're so big, but I've seen him before  
                    |    G                  |     Em   | G       |    Em
He's running round with all the boys,  oh thats him,  hmmm,    big thighs

     |  G          |   Em       |    G        | Em    
Creepy, creepy in the dark, shiny, shiny Joan of Arc, 
      |    G               |    Em       |     G            |Em|G|Em|G|Em   
When the moonlight starts its glow, cold hard Helen, Queen of Troy

     |      G              |   Em         |  G           |    Em   
She got charisma, got thunderstorms, like a baby, never been born
     |    G                |  Em        |   G             |   Em         
She got mammon, mammon in disguise, in the cold rooms of her eyes
A    G            A7   Em           A    G            A7   Em        
Oh, Helen of Troy Oh, Helen of Troy Oh, Helen of Troy Oh, Helen of Troy

        |   G          |  Em             |  G                  |   Em    
Oh look at him, inn't he gorgeous, such big thighs, all oiled and mine 
     |   G        | Em                 |  G     |  Em 
Listen, it's got to go,  I want him in my arms to stay

     |   G         |  Em          |  G          | Em    
Big fat mama done me wrong, left me hanging all alone 
      |   G                             |  Em   
But that bitch is as old, is as old, is as old
         |     G                            |   Em    
's that dirty old crone right out there in the cold
A    G            A7   Em           A    G            A7   Em          
Oh, Helen of Troy Oh, Helen of Troy Oh, Helen of Troy Oh, Helen of Troy
| G | Em | G | Em  | G | Em | G | Em

    |   G         | Em        |   G                |   Em     
Mercy, mercy, mercy me,  I'm so scared, please comfort me  
   |     G                   |   Em      |    G              |   Em   
I don't wanna be,  your banshee boy,  baying like the hounds of Troy
A    G            A7   Em           A    G            A7   Em
Oh, Helen of Troy Oh, Helen of Troy Oh, Helen of Troy Oh, Helen of Troy

     |     G               |   Em        |   G        |    Em     
Standing there from under the lights,  your eyes shining bright  
   |    G          |   Em             |    G           |   Em    
I want you all of the time,  fill me with awe, all of the time  
    | G        |     Em        |    G    |   Em
Lubricate me, don't hate me

Note:  The trick to this song is to strike the F# note on the bass E string
       when transitioning between Em & G chords.  The point at which this
       occurs is indicated with a '|' .    Not sure of all the lyrics!
