BLACK BOYS ON MOPEDS
Sinead O'Connor
(from _I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got_)

[Intro/strum pattern] D A G, with an A on the last beat before returning to  D.
Spelled out in 3/4 time, it goes: D D D  A A A  G G G  G G A  D...

[Verse 1]
D            A        G
Margaret Thatcher on TV
           A   D                A           G
Shocked by the deaths that took place in Beijing
A     D                A           G
Seems strange that she should be offended
    A    D          A        G
The same orders are given by her

I've said this before now
You said I was childish and you'll say it now
Remember what I told you
They hated me, they will hate you

[Chorus]
        (G)       A       D        A       G
        England's not the mythical land of Madame George and roses
                 D         A             G
        It's the home of police who kill black boys on mopeds
            D         A        G
        And I love my boy, and that's why I'm leaving
                D              A                  G
        I don't want him to be aware that there's any such thing as grieving
           (hold G for extra measure, then A on last beat before verse)

[Verse 2]
Young mother down at Smith Field, 5 a.m.
Looking for food for her kids
In her arms she holds three cold babies
And the first word that they learned was "Please"

These are dangerous days
To say what you feel is to dig your own grave
Remember what I told you
If you were of the world they would love you

[Chorus]
        (G)       A       D        A       G
        England's not the mythical land of Madame George and roses
                 D         A             G
        It's the home of police who kill black boys on mopeds
            D         A        G
        And I love my boy, and that's why I'm leaving
                D              A                  G
        I don't want him to be aware that there's any such thing as grieving
           (hold G for extra measure, then A on last beat before verse)

"Ooo" to fade over verse chords, end on D
