Unlike prior chords on this website, this one is in the right key, the chords are correct, and all the bits of
it are here--even the riffs and such. Just in time to learn for you to bring out your inner misanthrope in the
festive season. Enjoy.

Play above riff thrice.

[Verse]
D
What do I hear, what do I hear?
Bm
Chit-chat, and clinking glass
Am
Cheap talk, a lady's laugh
A
After hours

D
What do I see, what do I see?
Bm
Some sunken hideaway
Am
Where people go to play
B
After hours

[Bridge]
Em                              A5
There I'll spend the night
D                       A5
Meeting fancy things
Em
At bistros and old haunts
Em
Trying very hard to sin

Play the following chord progression as octaves on the A/G strings, with the final A an octave higher than the
initial one:
A B C D E F G A

[Verse]
D
Then it is day, and in a way
Bm
The pattern's much the same
Am
In spots, a matinee
A
Every day

D
Blend with the crowd, blend with the loud
Bm
Hypnotic ebb and flow
Am
Until the day goes slowly
B
Into night

[Bridge]
Em                      A5
See the same old crowd
D                               A5
At bistros and old haunts
Em
'Til the lights grow dim,
Em
The not-so-subtle hint to be gone

A B C D E F G A

[Chorus]
F
Thank God it's not Christmas
               G
When there is only you, and nothing else to do
F
Thank God it's not Christmas
                    G
Where there's just you to do
                        A
The rest is closed to public view

[Guitar Solo]
A

[Verse]
(play intro riff throughout rather than chords)
Carolling kids, carolling kids
A trifle premature
In tones so rich and pure and crystalline

Call for the day, the popular day
It's fast approaching now
But will the mood allow
One dissent

[Bridge]
Em                  A5
If this were Seine
D                    A5
We'd be very suave
Em
But it's just the rain
Em
Washing down the boulevard

A B C D E F G A

[Chorus]
F
So thank God it's not Christmas
                G
When there is only you, and nothing else to do
F
Thank God it's not Christmas
                   G
When there's just you to do
                        A
The rest is closed to public view

[Guitar Solo]
A

[Piano Break]
D Bm Am A

[Verse]
D
Popular days, popular ways
Bm
Are for the chosen few
Am
Not meant for me and you
A
Obviously

D
Popular nights, popular rites
Bm
Great things to say and do
Am
They aren't said or done by you
A
Obviously

[Bridge]
Em                  A5
If this were Seine
D                    A5
We'd be very suave
Em
But it's just the rain
Em
Washing down the boulevard

[Outro]
A   B   C   D   E   F   G   A   D
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo...
