Riot Act by Elvis Costello
from the album *Get Happy*

D/C   =  x20232
Bm7  =  x2x23x         BbMAJ7  =  x1x23x

A   Dm    A               Dm   A
         Forever
        Dm      C            F
doesn't mean forever anymore
A Dm        A
I said forever
               Dm                      C                 F
But it doesn't look like I'm gonna be around much anymore
D                  G
When the heat gets so tropical
Bm               Em
And the talk gets  so topical
D          D/C                 Bm7 (can use B5)
Riot act - you can read me the riot act
BbMAJ7            Em7
You can make me a matter of fact
     A
Or a villain in a million
  Em7                         A
A slip of the tongue is gonna keep me civilian
C#m             C              Bm
Why do you talk such stupid nonsense
            Bb               A
When my mind could rest much easier
C#m        C                  Bm
Instead of all this dumb dumb insolence
           Bb              A
I would be happier with amnesia
A    Dm         A
They say forget her
                         Dm                C                F
Now it looks like you're either gonna be before me or against me
A  Dm          A
I  got your letter
               Dm                 C             F
Now they say I don't care for the color that it paints me
D               G
Trying to be so bad is bad enough
Bm            Em
Don't make me laugh by talking tough
D              G
Don't put your heart out on your sleeve
Em
When your remarks are off the cuff

Chorus . . . . . .
