Intro: GEmAEm 

G          Em       A         Em
Everyone`s creeping up to the money God
G       Em                 A               Em
Putting tongues where they didn`t ought to be 
D#          Em        A     A#
On stepping stones of human hearts and souls
G        Em      A           Em
Into the land of nothing for free 

         G        Em	A	Em
Well the way that we`re living 
	 G        Em 	A	Em	
Is all take and no giving
	  G       Em       A     Em
There`s nothing to believe in
    G       Em         A        Em        G
The loudest mouth will hail the new found way

To be king for A day GEmAEm 
 
G	     Em	 A         Em	
Everyone`s licking up to the new king pin
G         Em      A#        A
Trying to get way up with a smile
G             Em             A         Em
Sing for your supper boy and jump to a finger click
G        Em     A         Em
Ain`t my way of living in style

        G         Em     A     Em
Cus the ladder gets longer
    G		    Em       A    Em
And ambition gets stronger 
        G		Em     A    Em
I can`t satisfy the hunger
     G	      Em       A       Em      G
That bad old moon has got you in its sway

To be king for A day GEmAEm 

C							  Em				 G
 You`re only here once so you got to get it right (no time to fuss and
Em
fight)

							    Em      A
Cus life don`t mean much if measured out with someone else’s plight (In time you`ll see the light)

   
        G        Em	     A	    Em
Cus the way that we`re living 
	 G        Em 	A	Em	
Is all take and no giving
	  G       Em       A     Em
There`s nothing to believe in
    G       Em         A        Em        G
The loudest mouth will hail the new found way

To be king for A day  GEmAEm

If there are any XTC fans still out there, then have a go at this song, it`s easy and sounds great (better on a acoustic) but still, good on a electric guitar as well.

I think those As should be Fs.
