Five Small Words - Elvis Costello (from "National Ransom")

Intro:  E   D A  (4x)

E                D       A     E  D A
Maybe you'll recognize in time
E                D       A     E  D A
Maybe one day you will discover
E                 D     A      E  D A
All the pain that lies behind
E              D    A      E  D A
You and your unfortunate love

G         C/G      G
 Somebody might be more
G               B
 Unsuitable and strange 
     E         G#m   C#m  F#m
With eyes that offer everything
B          A        D            [E   D A (2x)]
   And are capable of danger

E                  D        A     E  D A
My mind turns over lies you told
E                   D     A      E  D A
Things said to your other lover
E                 D       A     E  D A
Sweet as they had been to me 
    E                      D      A     E  D A
You lay there telling them to each other

G             C/G      G
Now I stand outside the door
G                     B
My head is filled with phrases
E      G#m       C#m    F#m
Inside someone's calling out
B       A      D         
  Their voices rise in praises

E          D     A       E               D    A
Five Small Words: "Don't want you me anymore?"
E          D     A       E               D    A
Five Small Words (well, who is keeping score?)
B                              A
Coward that you are, you would faithlessly implore
B
"Baby please don't leave me"
A
"Why don't you believe me?"
A                           [E   D A (2x)]
"Why did you deceive me?"

   E                D      A     E  D A
It didn't take some shiny dagger
E                D        A     E  D A
Tattooed fingers grip and hone
E              D        A       E  D A
I walked under some dark ladder
  E                D      A      E  D A
I heard your final loving moan

G             C/G      G
All your indiscretions are 
G                B
So merciful and   brief
E       G#m  C#m   F#m  
Genteel poison sprinkled on 
B     A    D         
 Your Spa--nish handkerchief

E          D     A       E               D    A
Five Small Words: "Don't you love me anymore?"
E          D     A      E               D    A
Five Small Words (well, who is keeping score?)
   B                               A
The coward that you are, you would faithlessly implore
B
"Baby please don't leave me"
A
"Why don't you believe me?"
A                          [E   D A (2x)]
"Why did you deceive me?"

E                    D       A      E  D A
Maybe in time you'll want me more
    E                  D A   E  D A
Accidentally like this .45 
     E   D A    E  D A
This .44

Outro:  [E   D A (16x)]  ...  E
