About this tab version
This acoustic version is tabbed from a youtube vid of Glen Tilbrook of Squeeze teaching this song to Steve Poltz. It's really worth a look as he goes through the timing for each part. Here's the link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pEmftclneD4. Was this info helpful? Yes No
[Intro]
B B/A E/Ab E  x2


[Verse 1]
               B              B/Bb
I bought a toothbrush, some toothpaste

Abm
A flannel for my face

C#          C#
Pajamas, a hairbrush

Em         Em
New shoes and a case

Bm           Bm
I said to my reflection

          F#m             G/A   A 
Let's get out of this place

[Bridge]

 D         E              E
Past the church and the steeple

       G            G
The laundry on the hill

     B                  B
The billboards and the buildings

A/E             A#/F
Memories of it still

      D/F#         E
Keep calling and calling

     D/F#
But forget it all

          G7/F  E   E7
I know I will

[Chorus]

B                B/A       E/Ab     E
Tempted by the fruit of another

B                B/A       E/Ab      E
Tempted but the truth is discovered

              C#
What's been going on

          F#
Now that you have gone

            B       B/A
There's no other

  E/Ab           E        B       B/A
Tempted by the fruit of another

  E/Ab            E       C#m        Em
Tempted but the truth is discovered

[Verse 2]

             B             B/Bb
I'm at the car park, the airport

Abm
The baggage carousel

   C#                C#
The people keep on crowding

     Em           Em
I'm wishing I was well

   Bm            Bm
I said it's no occasion

         F#m          G/A    A
It's no story I could tell

[Bridge 2]

 D      E             E
At my bedside empty pocket

    G             G
A foot without a sock

      B               B
Your body gets much closer
   
    A/E           A#/F
I fumble for the clock

  D/F#           E
Alarmed by the seduction

   D/F#          G7/F   E    E7
I wish it would stop

[Chorus 2]

B               B/A       E/Ab     E
Tempted by the fruit of another

B               B/A       E/Ab     E
Tempted but the truth is discovered

              C#
What's been going on

          F#
Now that you have gone

            B       B/A
There's no other

E/Ab             E         B      B/A
Tempted by the fruit of another

  E/Ab           E         C#m        Em 
Tempted but the truth is discovered

[Verse 3]

            B            B/Bb
I bought a novel, some perfume

Abm
A fortune all for you

C#                C#
But it's not my conscience

     Em       Em
That hates to be untrue

    Bm         Bm
I asked of my reflection

         F#m       G/A    A  D
What is there to do?

[Chorus 3]

B               B/A      E/Ab     E
Tempted by the fruit of another

B               B/A       E/Ab     E
Tempted but the truth is discovered

              C#
What's been going on

          F#
Now that you have gone
            B       B/A
There's no other

E/Ab             E         B      B/A
Tempted by the fruit of another

Tempted but the truth is discovered

B               B/A      E/Ab     E
Tempted by the fruit of another

B               B/A      E/Ab     E
Tempted but the truth has discovered

B               B/A      E/Ab     E
Tempted by the fruit of another

B               B/A      E/Ab     E
Tempted but the truth has discovered

              C#m       Em  B
What's been going on
