                     Placebo - Bigmouth Strikes Again
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


TUNING: STANDARD TUNING

* cAPO ON 4TH *

This is a great cover of an already good Smiths song.  Tuning is normal, but
the version I tabbed here has a Capo on 4th fret.  Some other Placebo songs
are played like that and without the Capo there would be some pretty nasty
Barre chords so I guess that Placebo themselves use a capo.  Anyways enjoy!

:: CHORDS

NOTE - 0 means open string, so technically its 4th fret, but that just confusing.

:: Lyrics

Sweetness
sweetness I was only joking when I said
I'd like to smash every tooth in your head.
Oh sweetness
sweetness I was only joking when I said
by rights you should be bludgeoned in your bed.

And now I know how joan of arc felt
now I know how joan of arc felt
as the flames rose to her roman nose
and her discman started to melt

Bigmouth la da dum da da
bigmouth blabbing it all, bigmouth strikes again
and I've got no right to take my place
in the human race
Oh
bigmouth la da dum da da
bigmouth blabbing it all
bigmouth strikes again
and I've got no right to take my place
in the human race

And now I know how joan of arc felt
now I know how joan of arc felt
as the flames rose to her roman nose
and her megadrive started to melt

Bigmouth la da dum da da
bigmouth blabbing it all
bigmouth strikes again
and I've got no right to take my place
in the human race
Oh
bigmouth la da dum da da
bigmouth blabbing it all bigmouth strikes again
and I've got no right to take my place
in the human race.
