Madness - The Prince (1979)

The bands first single, released on the 10th of August 1979.
Peaked at number 16, and in the charts for 11 weeks.
'The Prince' was then re-recorded for the album 'One Step Beyond', with slight alterations.

Can't Beleive there hasn't been a complete & accurate tab for this fantastic song yet!
Here it is, and hope you enjoy.

Verse 1:
G                          G
An earthquake is erupting, But not in Orange street
G                           G
A ghost-dance is preparing, You got to help us with your feet
C                                   C
If you're not in the mood to dance, Step back, grab yourself a seat
G                               G
This may not be uptown Jamaica, But we promise you a treat

Chorus 1:
D
Buster bowl me over with your bogus dance
C
Shuffle me off my feet
G
Even if I kept on runnin'
G
I'd never get to Orange street

Verse 2:
G                             G
So I set it up myself to say, For the man who set the beat
G                                     G
So I'll leave it up to you out there, To get him back on his feet

Interlude:
C, C, G, G     

Chorus 2:
D
Buster bowl me over with your bogus dance
C
Shuffle me off my feet
G
Even though I'll keep on runnin'

I'll never get to Orange street
