...EMBARRASSMENT... by Madness
-------------------...........

*from 'Absolutely' (1980)*


*CAPO 3rd FRET*

(Original Key: Bbm)


Verse 1:

Gm9 Gm
 Re-ceived a letter just the other day;
F  Dm
    Don't seem they wanna know you no more.
Gm9       Gm
  They've laid it down, given you their score.
F     Dm
 With-in the first two lines, it bluntly read;

Chorus 1:

       C6              C   C6    C    Em
You're not to come and see us no more; keep away from our door,
Gm
 Don't come 'round here no more.
Am7      Dm            Am7     Dm
 What on earth did you do that for?

Verse 2:

C6   C               C6    C
 Our aunt, she don't wanna know, she says;
Em
 What will the neighbours think? They'll think;
Gm
 We don't, that's what they'll think, we don't,
Am7    Dm           Am7       Dm
 But I will, 'cos I know they think I don't.

Chorus 2:

Bb
 Our uncle, he don't wanna know, he says;
Dm
 We are a disgrace to the human race, he says;
F
 How can you show your face,
Bb                             C7
 When you're a disgrace to the human race?

Solo:

Gm, Dm (x4)

Verse 3:

Gm9     Gm
 No com-mittment; you're an embarrassment,
F  Dm
    Yes, an embarrassment; a living endorsement.
Gm9     Gm
 The in-tention that you have booked,
F  Dm
    Was an in-tention that was overlooked.

Chorus 3:

C6    C    C6     C   Em
 They say, stay a-way; don't want you home today.
Gm
 Keep a-way from our door;
Am7    Dm          Am7     Dm
 Don't come 'round here no more.

Verse 4:

C6   C             C6    C             Em
 Our dad, he don't wanna know, he says; this is a serious matter;
Gm
 Too late to reconsider,
Am7 Dm          Am7   Dm
 No one's gonna wanna know ya!

Chorus 4:

Bb
 Our mum, she don't wanna know, she says;
Dm
 I'm feelin' twice as old, she says;
F
 Thought she had a head on her shoulder,
Bb                C7             C/D          D
 'Cos I'm feelin' twice as older, I'm feelin' twice as older.
