...STUPID MARRIAGE... by The Specials
---------------------................

*from 'The Specials' (1979)*


Intro: (Spoken)

(n.C)
 Court in session. What do you mean; "Oi, oi, oi"?
Must have court in session. Order.

(Spoken over E  A  B):

My name is Judge Roughneck,
And I will not tolerate any disobedience in my courtroom.
Rude boy, you have been brought in front of me,
And charged with smashing this woman's window.
Before I sentence you; what have you got to say in your defence?

Verse 1:

      E                A           B
I was walking down the street, one night,
       E                       A        B
When I saw her silhouette in a bathroom light.
E                       A          B
 Her way of life, baby; nothing to hide,
         E                                A    B
With her frosted glass shattered curtains open wide.

Chorus 1:

D      A      C     G
 Naked woman, naked man,
D              A        C        G
 Where did you get that nice sun-tan?
    D         A      C        G
You live in a castle built of sand,
D      A      C     G
 Naked woman, naked man.

Break:

(n.C)
 Naked from your bath, you go naked to your bed.
And I can't stop the hatred running through my head.

Solo:

E  A  B (x6)

Break:

(Spoken over E  A  B):

Silence in court. Order.
Rude boy, you have led me to believe,
That you was going out with a girl,
And she left you and married someone else.
So you got drunk and smashed up your ex-girlfriend's property.
I have come to one conclusion;
That is to sentence you to five months in prison.
Before they take you down to the cells,
What have you got to say for yourself?

Verse 3:

   E                               A              B
He wanted to be something, but she knows he never will.
      E                                A               B
She's got him where she wanted and for-got to take her pill.
       E                                      A               B
And he thinks that she'll be happy when she's hanging out the nappies,
   E                                A   Bb B (n.C)
If that's a happy marriage; I'd pre-fer to be un-happy!

Chorus 3:

D        A      C       G
 Married woman, married man,
D              A        C      G
 Where did you get that family plan?
D     A       C   G
 Mrs. Ewe and Mr. Ram,
D              A        C      G
 Where did you get that lovely lamb?

Coda: (Half Time)

D             A
 Naked woman, naked man,
C                       G
 Where did you get that nice suntan? (Order in my courtroom!)
D             A
 Naked woman, naked man,
C                       G
 Where did you get that nice suntan? (Hush up!)

(Increase Tempo):

D             A
 Naked woman, naked man,
C                       G
 Where did you get that nice suntan?
D             A
 Naked woman, naked man,
C                       G
 Where did you get that nice suntan?

D             A
 Naked woman, naked man,
C                       G
 Where did you get that nice suntan?
D             A
 Naked woman, naked man,
C                       G
 Where did you get that nice suntan?

(n.C)
 Naked woman, naked man, where did you get that nice sun-tan?

(Take him away!)
