                             Beauty - Tim Minchin
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

This song is actually in the key of Eflat, however I have tabbed it out in D.  
This allows you to play most of the chords open and it sounds much better.  
To play the song in its original key, put a capo on the first fret.

The song should be picked, not strummed.  Listen to it to get a better idea.

Beauty is a harlot

She will dance with any bastard

        Bbdim/F#                    Bm     Bm/A
She's undiscerning in her choice of partners

        Gadd#11
I could have her of course if I wish

       F#m
But I object to her promiscuousness

Em                  A    Bbdim7
Beauty just doesn't suit me




       D         Bm
For beauty is a harlot

An easy lay for lazy artists


           Bbdim/F#             Bm      Bm/A
I won't be fooled by her vulgar charm

          Gadd#11
It is the easiest trick in the book

F#m
Music's the worm and beautys the hook

      Em        
And I know you would swallow her whole

        A                   Bbdim7
But Im not here to pander to souls




      D          Bm
For beauty is a siren

            G     Gm           Dsus4  D
Trying to draw me from my chosen mission

            Bbdim/F#                Bm   -   Bm/A
I won't be tempted by her seductive singing

     Gadd#11                F#m
On principle I refuse to be party to her abuse

      Em
It is not my job to squat in the gutter

 F#m
Sharing the teat with you beauty drunk suckers

     G
You paid to see satire and rage

        A                                   Bbdim7
I swear I won't let beauty set foot on this stage




      D           Bm
For beauty is a siren

      G     Gm               Dsus4  D        
A spotlight hungry superficial harlot

        Bbdim/F#                  Bm        Bm/A
She will toy with your defenceless heart and leave you

G(add#11)              
Tear streaked when the lights come on

    F#m
You look around to find her gone

      Em
And despite your sighs you've not a clue

              A                  A7
That as you fell from her she stole from you




      D           Bm
For beauty is a harlot

          G     Gm          Dsus4  D 
She will lie with any two bit artist

        Bbdim/F#         Bm      Bm/A
And for all those other bastards

              G      Gm       D    -   Bm
She seems to come so easily

         G       A7     D
But she comes too hard for me

Thanks for a great transcription Brynn - I was in the middle of working out a version before I came across yours and you saved me a frustrating hour or two!

The only thing I do differently is to play an A7 in the final line on 'hard' where you have a Gm. And I suppose to mix up the D chords in the opening line of each verse with a few Dmaj7's, but that probably went without saying.

Thanks again for the chords, lovely stuff.

You are correct, I clearly wasn't listening closely enough to that last bit. Thanks for pointing it out, I have updated the tab.
