About this tab version
Chords with all harmonies as close as possible. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Tim Minchin - Beauty


[Note]
* for an easier version transpose a half step down (and put Capo on 1st fret)
* lyrics, chord harmonies and exact chord placing vary slightly from performance to performance
* when picking, for Abmaj7 you could play something like this (making it Abmaj7addb5 i guess):

E |-------------|
B |-----------4-|
G |-------5h7---|
D |-----5-------|
A |---6---------|
E |-4-----------| h = hammer on


[Verse 1]
Ebmaj7      Cm
Beauty is a harlot
         Ab       Abm   Ebsus4 Eb
She will dance with any bastard
          G7                        Cm    Cm/Bb
She's undiscerning in her choice of partners
        Abmaj7
I could have her of course, if I wished
        Gm
But I object to her promiscuousness
Fm                  Bb       Bdim7
Beauty just doesn't suit me, for...


[Verse 2]
Ebmaj7      Cm
Beauty is a harlot
   Ab   Abm          Ebsus4 Eb
An easy lay for lazy artists
        G7                      Cm
I won't be fooled by her vulgar charm
   Cm/Bb  Abmaj7
It is the easiest trick in the book
        Gm
Music's the worm and beauty's the hook
Fm
And I'm sure you would swallow her whole
Bb                          Bdim7
But I'm not here to satisfy souls, for...


[Verse 3]
Ebmaj7      Cm
Beauty is a siren
          Ab      Abm           Ebsus4 Eb
Trying to draw me from my chosen mission
           G7                       Cm   Cm/Bb
I won't be tempted by her seductive singing
   Abmaj7                    Gm
On principle, I refuse to be party to her abuse
        Fm
It is not my job to squat in the gutter
Gm
Sharing the teat with you beauty-drunk suckers
    Abmaj7
You paid to see satire and rage
        Bb                     Bb7          Bdim7
I swear I won't let beauty set foot on this stage, for...


[Verse 4]
Ebmaj7      Cm
Beauty is a harlot
  Ab                 Abm         Ebsus4 Eb
A spotlight-hogging, superficial starlet
         G7                        Cm        Cm/Bb
She will toy with your defenceless heart and leave you
Abmaj7                    
Tear-streaked when the lights come on
    Gm
You look around to find her gone
    Fm
And despite your size, you've not a clue
Bb                            Bb7        Bdim7
That as you fell for her, she stole from you, for...


[Verse 5]
Ebmaj7    Cm
Beauty is harlot
         Ab         Abm       Ebsus4 Eb
She will lie with any two-bit artist
        G7                     Cm       Cm/Bb
And for all those other bloody bastards
             Abmaj7  Abm7 Eb Cm Csus4
She seems to come so easily,
        Abmaj7    Abm7
But she comes too hard
       Eb Ebmaj7 Ebsus2 Ebmaj7sus2
for me
