HOBBY FOR A DAY by THE WALL

Classic UK punk single from early 80's.

I haven't got all the lyrics, so there are gaps!

Any help with the odd chord and lyric is appreciated

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
INTRO:  B  /  F   x4   (it's hard to tell, as it seems to be some sort of recording loop)

ALL IN:  B    B    F     F     G      G     Bb     Bb   x2

VERSE 1:

A            D   E                      C            A  G
British justice is so grand,           it's the finest in the land
a body you want ???????????,           so come on fight for your country
We'll get you up looking smart & hard, be a man in the Royal Welsh Guards
Take some pictures send home to mum,   look at me are you proud of your son?

BREAK:   C#  (x 4 bars)

CHORUS:

G        F#      E
The army life is fine
????????????? the time
just a hobby for a day

Verse 2:

B                                       F
off to the pub, the nights grow young,   ????????????????  like another bomb
G                                       Bb
you wake to find a hospital bed,         you've only one eye & you can't feel your legs
B                                            F
never mind son you've got a basket of fruit, and a bottle of whiskey from some  ?????  in a suit
G                                        Bb
i'm sure we can find a new job for you,  keep your chin up cos it's a new new

VERSE 3:

A            D   E                      C            A  G
How some people can be pleased,         like a little heart disease
you should be writing home to mum,      boasting and meeting the queens son
receiving presents in your bed,         as TV cameras film your head
and not many blokes ?????????????       but not many blokes have amputated legs

BREAK:  C#  (4 x bars)

CHORUS:

G        F#      E
The army life is fine
????????????? the time
just a hobby for a day
