The Ballad of Me and my Brain from The 1975's album 
I like it when you sleep for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it

Lyrics from the vinyl cover.
Chords from Joe Rees's cover on youtube

     C                  G
Well, I think I've gone mad!!
Am                  F          
  Isn't that so sad!!
          C                   G                     AM       F
"What a shame you've lost a brain that you never had"

     C                         G
"Oh, mum check the car it can't have gone far,
             Am                    F
I must have left it on a train or lost it in a bar!!"
C                  G
  It's likely in a Sainsbury's
Am                           F
Flirting with the girls and waiting for me

    C               G
I jumped on a bus, declared my name,
 Am                   F
Asked if anybody had seen my brain
      C                    G
"Your brain was last seen going for a run
     Am                F                         C
And would you sign an autograph for my daughter Laura?
           G                             Am
'Cos she adores you, but I think you're shit
"I've gotta look for my brain for a bit!!"

    C                  G
I stepped outside, it hurt my eyes
       Am                             F
"Well what do you expect when you've got no mind!?!?"
     C                 G
I searched all day it drove me insane 
 Am                 F
"Where would I be if I was my brain?"


C, G, Am, F


    C                            G
The nice nurse told me said she felt my pain
     Am                     F
But couldn't find a single trace of my brain
   C                     G
"Oops I did it again" started playing
  Am               F                G
Forget my brain, remember my name!!
