Subject: Re: REQ: Jam - That's Entertainment (NAN)

The chords are Bb - Gm (verse), then Cm - Ab (chorus).

Play them thus:

Bb         Gm        Cm        Ab
688766    355333    x35543  466544

In fact, the Gm is more of a Gm7 that resolves to Gm (in tune with the
la-la-la-la-las), but it's a pig to play that and sing the words (which don't
really scan properly) at the same time, so I don't bother. It sounds okay.

From: Harlan L Thompson 


Bb                 Gm
A police car and a screaming siren
Bb                  Gm
Pneumatic drill and ripped up concrete
Bb              Gm
A baby wailing, stray dog howling
Bb                        Gm
The screech of brakes and lamp light blinking
Cm          Ab        Cm          Ab    Bb  Gm  Bb  Gm
That's entertainment, that's entertainment

The smash of glass and the rumble of boots
An electric train and a ripped up phone booth
Paint splatters walls and the cry of a tomcat
Lights going out and a kick in the balls

I say that's entertainment, that's entertainment-Ahh! (la la la)

Days of speed and slow time Mondays
Pissing down with rain on a boring Wednesday
Watching the news and not eating your tea
A freezing cold flat, and damp on the walls

I say that's entertainment, that's entertainment

Waking up at 6am on a cool warm morning
Opening the windows and breathing in petrol
An amateur band rehearsing in a nearby yard
Watching the telly and thinking about your holidays

That's entertainment, that's entertainment-Ahh! (la la la)

Waking up from bad dreams and smoking cigarettes
Cuddling a warm girl and smelling stale perfume
A hot summer's day and sticky black tarmac
Feeding ducks in the park and wishing you were far away

That's entertainment, that's entertainment

Two lovers kissing amongst the scream of midnight
Two lovers missing the tranquility of solitude
Getting a cab and travelling on buses
Reading the grafitti about slashed seat affairs

I say that's entertainment, that's entertainment-Ahh! (la la la)

La la la... (to fade)

NOTE: At last, the complete correct words!  I can't understand a thing 
Paul Weller ever says, but luckily I have the lyric sheet from "Sound 
Affects".  P.S.- does anyone have the words for "The Bitterest Pill"?  I 
kind of figured out the guitar but I don't have the slightest idea what 
he's saying.

IT's better to play:

(Capo 3rd Fret)

[ G ] [Em Em7]

and the chorus:

[Am7 ] [Fmaj7]

I want to post or [tab]
