C          D      
Little lady with Dingwalls bullshit

Ah, you're so stupid, Foetid brainwaves
C           D
Little lady, what really happens

When you see mirrors, you get the shivers

Making love to the Mersey tunnel
G                        F
With a sausage, have you ever been to Liverpool?
C                      D
Please don't talk much, it burns my ears
G                           F

C           D
London lady, why did you lay me?
G                             F
Your head is crowded with the names you've hounded
C                    D
The lines around your eyes they show me
G               F                         G                      Bb F

Tell me what you've got to look so pleased about


G Bb F (x7)

note: Hugh plays a kind of 'anti solo' here, where he just attacks his guitar and plays randomly,
unfortunately, it's really low in the mix so more time is needed to decipher it :)

end on F.

Your cafes tell the tales

A million dreams I've had
                    G#m    D       E C#m B (riff)
A million lies I've told, Toulouse
F#m G#m  A  B    
Goodbye Toulouse
