Here it is: the Squeeze classic, "Pulling Mussels From The Shell,"
written by Glenn Tilbrook and Chris Difford, from the 1980 album "Argybargy."
Difford and Tilbrook often perform this song acoustic -- in fact, I started
playing it after seeing them on an early "Unplugged" before it got trendy
with big stars. Note: I use G# and climb back down to G on the chorus, but
on TV they played a different chord which I couldn't figure out visually.
Also, they skip the solo and go straight to the last verse...Enjoy!

"Pulling Mussels From The Shell" by Squeeze (my previous post was incorrect)


Am                                               Dm   Am Dm
They do it down on camber sands, They do it at Waikiki
C                G                                     F     C F
Lazing about the beach all day, All night the crickets creepy
E                      F      C               D
Squinting faces at the sky, A Harrold Robbins paperback
E                             F        C                D
Surfers drop their boards and dry, And everybody wants a hat

G     Am
But behind the Chalet, My holiday's complete
     Am
And I feel like William Tell
     Dm        F    G      G#  G
Maid Marion on her tiptoed feet
                         C     G
Pulling mussels from the shell,
                         F       G
Pulling mussels from the shell

Am                                                Dm   Am Dm
Shrinking in the sea so cold, Topless ladies look away
C             G                                F   C F
A he-man in a sunken shower, Shelters from the rain
E                        F        C               D
You wish you had a motor boat, To pose around the harbor bar
E                           F         C             D
And when the sun goes out to bed, You hook it up behind the car

G     Am
But behind the Chalet, My holiday's complete
     Am
And I feel like William Tell
     Dm        F    G      G#  G
Maid Marion on her tiptoed feet
                         C     G
Pulling mussels from the shell,
                         F      G
Pulling mussels from the shell

Am                                                  Dm    Am Dm
Two fat ladies window shop, Something for the mantelpiece
C                   G                               F     C F
In for bingo all the nines, A panda for sweet little niece
E                       F      C            D
The coach drivers stand about, Looking at a local map
E                       F       C                 D
About the boy he's gone away, Down to next door's caravan

G     Am
But behind the Chalet, My holiday's complete
     Am
And I feel like William Tell
     Dm        F    G      G#  G
Maid Marion on her tiptoed feet
                         C     G
Pulling mussels from the shell,
                         F
Pulling mussels from the shell  (2X and end)

A he-man in a sudden shower!

Otherwise, spot-on.
