Our House by Madness

chords by Matt Poole of England, England.

This is my first tab, after years of leeching. I've missed out the lead guitar
bits out of pure laziness, for which I can only apologize. In the meantime, put
on your best London accent and enjoy...

[Verse 1]
C                       Gm
Father wears his Sunday best
Dm                      
Mother's tired she needs a rest
Fm
The kids are playing up downstairs
C                       Gm
Sister's sighing in her sleep
Dm
Brother's got a date to keep
Fm
He can't hang around

[Chorus]
D    Am     Em       Gm
Our house , in the middle of our street 
Our house , in the middle of our ... 

[Verse 2] (as verse 1)
Our house it has a crowd 
There's always something happening 
And it's usually quite loud 
Our mum she's so house proud 
Nothing ever slows her down 
And a mess is not allowed 

[Chorus]
D    Am     Em       Gm
Our house , in the middle of our street 
Our house , in the middle of our ... 
B  F#m      C#m     Em
Our house , in the middle of our street 
B  F#m      C#m     Em
Our house , in the middle of our ... 
Something tells you that you've got to get away from it 

[Verse 3] (same old same old)
Father gets up late for work 
Mother has to iron his shirt 
Then she sends the kids to school 
Sees them off with asmall kiss 
She's the one they're going to miss 
In lots of ways
 
[Chorus]
D    Am     Em       Gm
Our house , in the middle of our street 
Our house , in the middle of our ... 
B  F#m      C#m     Em
Our house , in the middle of our street 
B  F#m      C#m     Em
Our house , in the middle of our ... 
Something tells you that you've got to get away from it 

[Verse 4]Quick singing bit uses verse chords
I remember way back then when everything was true and when 
We would have such avery good time such afine time 
Such a happy time 
And I remember how we'd play simply waste the day away 
Then we'd say nothing would come between us two dreamers 
Father wears his Sunday best 
Mother's tired she needs arest 
The kids are playing up downstairs 
Sister's sighing in her sleep 
Brother's got a date to keep 
He can't hang around 

[Outro]
D   Am      Em      Gm
Our house , in the middle of our street 
D   Am      Em      Gm
Our house , in the middle of our street 
B   F#m     C#m     Em
Our house , in the middle of our street 
B   F#m     C#m     Em
Our house , in the middle of our ... 
C   Gm      Dm      Fm
Our house , was our castle and our keep 
C   Gm      Dm      Fm
Our house , in the middle of our street 
D   Am      Em      Gm
Our house , that was where we used to sleep 
D   Am      Em      Gm
Our house , in the middle of our street 
B   F#m     C#m     Em
Our house , in the middle of our street 

Peace.

Solid tab, although I think two things could be changed. I'm not sure if the timing is right for the chords in the chorus, although they definitely are the right chords. Also, I think it's a Gm7 in the verse, instead of just a Gm. Thanks for tabbing this out!
