[Intro]
(Gmaj7)   (G6)     (Gmaj7)  (G6)
|  /   /   /   /  |  /   /   /   /  |

  Em7                        Dmaj7sus2 D#maj7sus2
|  /   /   /   /  |  /    /      /       /    |


[Verse 1]
B7sus4
          Only the very young, and the very beautiful can be so aloof,
Dmaj7sus2                     Dmaj7     Dmaj7sus2    Dmaj7
          Hanging out with the boys, all swagger and poise,
Gmaj7               G6             Gmaj7              G6
      I don't even care what other people are there,
        Em7                           Dmaj7sus2  D#maj7sus2
I just stare, and stare, and stare!


[Verse 2]
B7sus4
       I see your shadow in the swimming pool,
          Dmaj7sus2            Dmaj7
I see your face in the shaving mirror,
          Dmaj7sus2            Dmaj7
Time, and time,    and time a - gain,
Gmaj7            G6             Gmaj7            G6
  I follow your foot steps, so quietly up the backstairs,
Em7                     
     And I hope, and I pray,
           Em7                Dmaj7sus2  D#maj7sus2
You ain't never gonna find me there!


[Verse 3]
B7sus4
        Smooth skin and tenderness, long ago on a dark night,
              Dmaj7sus2                    Dmaj7
Wish I could           ...see you once a - gain,
            Dmaj7sus2           Dmaj7
Just to re - member that it was true,
  Gmaj7                  G6       Gmaj7                 G6
I want to be still be - side you, quiet and still be - side you,
   Em7                                                  Dmaj7sus2  D#maj7sus2
Listening to your breathing, and feeling your warmth a - gain! 


[Chorus]
B7sus4            Dmaj7sus2  Dmaj7            Dmaj7sus2  Dmaj7
        War baby,                   you were a war---    baby,
Gmaj7  G6       Gmaj7  G6             Em     Em/F#     Em/G    Em/G#
      This means war, baby,  ...I'm scared,        so scared,
          Em/A    Em/B          Em/C      Em/C#
Of what - ever it is you keep putting me through!


[Verse 4]
B7sus4
          I don't think I could stand another ten years of this fighting,
Dmaj7sus2                        Dmaj7         Dmaj7sus2      Dmaj7
          All this stabbing and wounding, only getting my own back,
Gmaj7                    G6               Gmaj7                G6
       I don't want to batter you to your feet and knees and elbows,
           Em7                                       Dmaj7sus2  D#maj7sus2
When I'm kneeling by the candle at the foot of my own bed!


[Verse 5]
B7sus4
           Corresponding disasters ...every night on the TV,
Dmaj7sus2                 Dmaj7       Dmajsus2           Dmaj7
           Sickening re - ality keeps gripping me in its guts,
        Gmaj7            G6       Gmaj7               G6
All my friends talk and joke, and laugh about Arma - geddon,
              Em7
But, like a nightmare, 
              Em7                                    Dmaj7sus2  D#maj7sus2
It's still waiting there at the end of each and every day!


[Chorus]
B7sus4            Dmaj7sus2  Dmaj7            Dmaj7sus2  Dmaj7
        War baby,                   you were a war---    baby,
Gmaj7  G6       Gmaj7  G6             Em     Em/F#     Em/G    Em/G#
      This means war, baby,  ...I'm scared,        so scared,
          Em/A    Em/B         Em/C       Em/C#
Of what - ever it is you keep putting me through!

[Verse 6]
B7sus4
           I don't think I could stand another ten years of this fighting,
Dmaj7sus2                       Dmaj7         Dmaj7sus2      Dmaj7
           Always stabbing and wounding, only getting my own back,
Gmaj7             G6                 Gmaj7             G6
Later that seem evening, when we were out in the car talking,
Em7
     I suddenly wondered...
         Em7                        Dmaj7sus2 D#maj7sus2
Who the hell it was we were trying to fool?


[Verse 7]
B7sus4
        'Cause you were the first one ...I ever wanted,
         Dmaj7sus2            Dmaj7         Dmaj7sus2     Dmaj7
And it's        ...you I come home to at the end of every day,
       Gmaj7           G6         Gmaj7           G6
Like a mother-sucking baby, de - manding and so helpless,
    Em7                                            Dmaj7sus2  D#maj7sus2
A little old balding man, all wrinkles and bulging eyes!


[Chorus]
B7sus4            Dmaj7sus2  Dmaj7  Dmaj7sus2  Dmaj7
        War baby,                   ...war---  baby,
Gmaj7  G6       Gmaj7  G6             Em    Em/F#      Em/G   Em/G#
      This means war, baby,  ...I'm scared,        so scared,
          Em/A   Em/B          Em/C       Em/C#
Of what - ever it is you keep putting me through!


[Coda]
B7sus4                       Dmaj7sus2          Dmaj7      Dmaj7sus2  Dmaj7
        You were a war baby,  talking about the Third World War---,   baby,
  Gmaj7   G6        Gmaj7    G6
|  /  /   /  /  |    War---, baby!

Em   Em/F#    Em/G      Em/G#   Em/A    Em/B    Dmaj7sus2 D#maj7sus2  B7sus4
       ...So scared!(...scared, scared, scared!)
