The Wombats - Backfire at the disco
===================================

Thought id have a go at this since no one else has.
It's not perfect, but it will do.

Enjoy. Great tune.

'Everything’s going alright I guess, she took down my number and home address, 
was going perfectly until...'


Chorus:
   A
It backfired at the disco

I did something I'll never forget

More a sleazy remark on her whorish dress
My wires crossed like they've never done before'


Pre-chorus 2:
'Well it's 3 o' clock and I'm feeling shite
I'm going home alone tonight
Everything was going perfectly until...'

Chorus x2
(play the Intro fill instead of the G#m chord for the first chorus)

I did something I'll never forget
It backfired at the disco, we were dancing at the disco
I made a move when it was well out of context'

'It backfired at the disco, we were dancing at the disco
It backfired at the disco, we were dancing at the disco

It backfired at the disco, we were dancing at the disco'
