The Roches - My Winter Coat

CAPO: 2nd Fret


[Verse 1]
                A       G
The fit is generous and loose
    D                   A       D    
The coat is filled with down of goose
Should I feel guilty about that?
           D        A        D    
I wouldn't wear the fur of a cat

[Verse 2]
    G                    C        G      C  G
The coat is black, so in New York city
   A                      D         A7
It doesn't look dirty, it stays pretty
    D                       A         G
The cuffs are purple, which perfectly suits
  D               A       D    
A pair, I already had, of boots

[Verse 3]
                        A        G
Can't help sharing on a personal note
  D                A           D     
A secret I have concerning the coat
One of the reasons that it got my vote
                   D     A         D    
Is the way it lies open around the throat

[Verse 4]
    G                     C        G      C  G
For me the collar mustn't come too high
  A                         D       A7
Because, well all right, my skin is dry
        D                A         G
So each morning I rub my face with oil
        D                    A            D     
And the fabric, you see, the grease could soil

[Verse 5]
                       A        G
Can we speak a moment about the lining
      D      A         D    
After my own heart's designing
It's nylon, so your skirts don't wind
        D      A         D    
Up in a bunch around you behind

[Verse 6]
G                           C       G       C  G
When the time comes for the coat to clean
    A                       D         A7
You throw this thing in the washing machine
D                          A            G
Drying, you doubt, but the filling does fluff
    D                      A        D    
I'm here to proclaim, this coat is enough

[Verse 7]
                            A       G
The length of the coat is below the knees
          D          A          D    
So in the cold, your legs don't freeze
I'm nuts about another one of its charms
                  D         A         D    
There's plenty of room underneath the arms

[Verse 8]
    G                    C               G      C  G
The coat's not bulky, it weighs about an ounce
         A                       D         A7
And it's practically void of any frivolous flounce
  F#m                         G
I will admit, it has shoulder pads
Em                          D      A7
All things considered, it's not so bad
   D                  A        G
It looks alright even from the side
                   D            A      D    
I guess 'cause the bottom isn't overly wide

[Verse 9]
                           A             G
Okay, so you say, you'd prefer something hipper
D                    A        D    
Can I just tell you about the zipper
I searched for it for many years
           D           A     D    
Last one I had, I tore up in tears

[Verse 10]
   G              C        G       C  G
It turned me into Jack the Ripper
    A                     D       A7
But now I stepped in Cinderella's slipper
   D                            A            G
It runs from the gullet to just south of the crotch
                    D            A      D    
And working, it's a task you can hardly botch

[Verse 11]
It's made of a material that will not rust
             D          A         D    
It won't get stuck, you don't get fussed
     G                  C     G    C  G
It undoes easily in the usual way
            A                        D              A7
But you can also pull it up if you'd like to, let's say

        F#m                               G
There's snaps as well, which I don't even use
     Em                   D        A7
They beat out buttons, if I had to choose

[Verse 12]
    D                  A           G
I remember the night I went to the store
D                          A             D    
Fighting my way across the cloak-stuffed floor
Suffocating, I was, it seemed
            D          A         D    
When from a rack, this last hope beamed

[Verse 13]
   G                         C        G      C  G
Of all my requirements, I pursued the trail
   A                         D            A7
To find furthermore the damn thing was on sale
   D                        A           G
It had a small chain at the back of the neck
             D                         A               D    
So you could hang it on a hook, but it broke, what the heck

[Verse 14]
                                 A       G
With the end of each sleeve, I'm totally smitten
D                   A             D    
Ample space for to emerge a thick mitten
If you wanna be warm, it wins far and away
                   D             A       D    
It's like walking around in your bed all day

[Verse 15]
  G                                 C         G       C  G
I know you're not supposed to be so fond of a thing
      A                             D         A7
But today this is my heartfelt inspiration to sing
  D                               A            G
I hope you don't think I'm merely trying to be clever
            D          A       D    
I wish this coat would last forever
