                    The Great Escape - I Am Kloot
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
By: dr_silverrose

Originally performed by John Bramwell, the I Am Kloot lead guitar/vocalist, under the
name Johnny Dangerously.  Can be found on I Am Kloot's Album "B", a B-side compilation
album, released 2009. Featured prominently in the 2003 BBC Comedy Early Doors, Series 2, 
Episode 5.

This is a very simple song with standard chords and strumming, easy to learn, fun to
sing and play.

Capo 4

D                  Am                   D           D
You were born with football boots and a suntan complexion

         C                  Am            D
You once thought that on reflection, I've really got it made

D                Am                  D        D
You shrugged and smiled and made the usual excuses

    C               Am         D                 D
You suffered small abuses, and settled for their pay

C           Am                 D        D
You want to learn to live like an aristocrat

C                     Am                 D
But your girlfriend's earrings well they soon put pay to that

           C                Am        D                D
and if the whole world came crashing, down around your ears

          C               Am            D
You could dream of stucco wallpaper and crystal chandeliers


D          Am                 D                D
You cashed in your cards, you want to buy some glamour

    C          Am                   D
You really are enamoured, with that new soap on a rope

D              Am             D               D
A thousand fat comedians came in disguised as clerics

     C              Am         D
They got you in hysterics, and walked off with your soul

              C           Am           D                 D
and with that cheapskate, royalty, you get your flag and wave

     C                Am          D
Well I've seen you on TV grinning at the motorcade

       C                   Am              D
 D
Pretty soon we'll hang the traitors, we'll string them up like drapes

         C                Am            D
And I'll ride around like Steve McQueen in The Great Escape


D          Am                  D                D
You hung around too long, your mother read your letters

    C                 Am      D
You grinned like a go-getter, come and got and gone

D            Am                    D            D
The time the morning slips, blends into the wallpaper

    C              Am              D
and once you could escape her, but where did you go wrong

         C               Am                 D             D
and your father's at the factory that makes money selling guns

     C                    Am                 D
That fought the wars that spent the lives of other peoples sons

       C                   Am                  D
     D
Pretty soon we'll hang the traitors, we'll string them up like drapes

         C                Am            D
And I'll ride around like Steve McQueen in The Great Escape


D                  Am                   D           D
You were born with football boots and a suntan complexion

         C                  Am             D             D
You once thought that on reflection, you'd really got it made

         C                  Am             D             D
You once thought that on reflection, you'd really got it made

         C                  Am                     D
   D
You once thought that on reflection, oh yeah, I've really got it made
