Pads, Paws & Claws - Elvis Costello

Main Riff:

Bottom E -1-1-3-1-1-3-1-1-3-1-1-3-1-1-3-1-1-3-1-1-3-1-1-3

Verse One:
  Main riff -------------------------------------
She's a feline tormentor, not any vaudeville wife
But with a drunk-town lament
He leads her a miserable life
C7         G         E7        C
But when he's full of that beer-champagne
No Chord
She pads, paws, pads, paws and claws

Verse Two:
Main Riff-------------------------------------
And if he should wake up in some terrible dive
And he don't know if he's so-so
But he's so surprised he's alive
C7         G         E7        C
"Come on little honey, let me under your hive"
No Chord
She pads, paws, pads, paws and claws

Main Riff--------------------
She pads, pads around the bedroom,
A7         C       E7
Practicing ways to flirt
    A7                C             B7
He paws, pours another drink and anything in a skirt
Anything wearing a necklace
B7 ----------------------------------
He thinks of claws scratching his back
he's going out there he's not coming back

Verse 3
Main Riff------------------
She's got spider-leg fingers,
Sharpened whenever he strays
And she carries a bird-purse,
With all of her womanly ways
While he's drinking hairspray,
She knows that he never would dare
She could be in pictures if she wasn't all covered in fur
C7         G         E7        C
He's coming home now and here's the surprise
C7         G         E7        C
You wouldn't believe the lies that he tries
C7         G         E7        C
She cut him down to her favourite size
No Chord
She pads, paws, pads, paws and claws
Main Riff---------------------------
She pads, paws, pads, paws and claws

Repeat to Fade

(----- etc means “Keep playing the riff” or “Keep hitting the chord”. The chords in the 
are just hit staccato notes whereas in the verse it has an up, up, change rhythm)
