Little Comets - The Isles
------------------------------
Key of E
Ear-transcribed on ukulele by Neil Killer.
------------------------------
Alternately, you can change every second C#m chord to an F#m, as in
C#m - B - F#m - B. The (E-B) accent is played after every B chord, but I have 
marked it where it is most strongly heard.
------------------------------

INTRO:
C#m - B - C#m - B

VERSE 1:
C#m                                 B (E-B)
Economic downturn you can get a job
C#m                                  B
Apologetic parents you can get a job
              C#m                            B         (E-B)
Sometimes I'm feeling just like Cupid with a bow and arrow
        C#m                       B
And I'm firing it at people who remain too shallow

CHORUS:
       C#m                       B
In the B R I T I say British Isles
    C#m                    B
The streets are bleak, the kids are running wild

VERSE 2:
C#m                                         B (E-B)
Terror on the pavement, panic in the street
C#m                                          B
Tension in the twisted silence of our sheets
            C#m                          B
Sometimes I lie awake for hours, feeling so synthetic
         C#m                                  B
While my eyes are screaming out for something way more epic

CHORUS:
         C#m                       B
It's the B R I T I say British Isles
    C#m                    B
The streets are bleak, the kids are running wild
C#m
Terribly bold they try so hard
B
Never look up to see the stars
       C#m                      B
In the B R I T I say British Isles

BRIDGE:
C#m
Leeds screaming, Bristol torn
B
Belfast and Hull forlorn
C#m
Oxford dreaming in denial
B
With all it's gleaming spires
C#m
Stoke bleeding, Glasgow yawns
B
Dundee and Cardiff mourn
C#m
York breaking, Sheffield cries
B
All fears are multiplied

CHORUS:
       C#m                       B
In the B R I T I say British Isles
    C#m                    B
The streets are bleak, the kids are running wild
C#m
Terribly bold they try so hard
B
Never look up to see the stars
       C#m                      B
In the B R I T I say British Isles

OUTRO:
C#m - B - C#m - B
