C5                                                        G/D
Same old boring Sunday morning, Old man's out washing the car
C5
Mum's in the kitchen cooking Sunday dinner,
                            G/D
Her best meal, only one she does
Am       C               G
 Johnnys upstairs in his bedroom sitting in the dark
Am            C                   G                  D      D
 Annoying the neighbours with his punk rock electric guitar

Chorus
NC             G               B            A
This is the sound, This is the sound of the suburbs
G            B            A       C, E,D
 This is the sound of the suburbs 

Verse 2 
C5
Every lousy Monday morning, Heathrow jets go crashing
         G/D
Over our home
C5
Ten o'clock, Broadmoor siren, Driving me mad
               G/D
Won't leave me alone
Am         C            G
 The woman next door just sits there and stares outside
Am          C                  G                 D
 She hasn't come out once ever since her husband died

Chorus
NC               G             B            A
This is the sound, This is the sound of the suburbs
G            B            A       C, E,D  
 This is the sound of the suburbs

Break
