                             My perfect cousin - The undertones
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:Lloyd mathews(aged 14)
Email:Lloyd8658@hotmail.com
Tuning: E (basic/normal)

It's a great song, there most successful, and, this is my adapted version of the
chords, which is easier to play, but sounds exactly the same.
I do know all the words, and have written them at the end, but on the tab I just
wrote them at each chord change. Strum all the strings, i didn't put -0-0- etc.
on each string not in use cos it looked too crowded, but its strumming all 6
strings, and holding the frets.

lyrics
~~~~~~

Verse 1

now i've got a cousin called kevin,
who's sure to go to heaven,
always spotless clean and neat,
as smooth as you do get 'em,
he's got a fur-lined sheep skin jacket,
my mother says it cost a packet,
she won't even let me explain,
that me and kevin we just look the same,

Chorus

oh my perfect cousin,
what i like to do he doesn't,
he's the families pride and joy,
he's mummy's little golden boy,

Verse 2

he's got a degree in economics,
maths, physics, and bionics,
he thinks that i'm a cabbage,
cos i hate university challenge,
even at the age of ten,
smart boy kevin was a smart boy then,
he always beat me a subuteo,
cos he flicked the kick, and i didn't know,

Chorus

oh my perfect cousin,
what i like to do he doesn't,
he's the families pride and joy,
he's mummy's little golden boy,



Verse 3

his mother bought him a synthesiser,
got the human league in to adviser her,
now he's making lot's of noise,
playing along with the art school boys,
girls try to attract his attention,
but what a shame, it's in vain, total rejection,
he won't ever be left on the shelf,
cos kevin, he's in love with himself,

Chorus

oh my perfect cousin,
what i like to do he doesn't,
he's the families pride and joy,
he's mummy's little golden boy.


enjoy!

some of them chords dont sound right at all and u should of put the 0 in aswell it would of made it alot easyer to under stand and the first set of chords are slides.. but u tryed and no1 else has done it yet. i will give u some credit for that.
