Anthony John Clarke - Tuesday Night Is Always Karaoke


CAPO: 4th Fret



[Intro]
Em    A  Em    D

[Verse 1]
    Em                            C
The wind blew so cold against the west coast of Ireland
     D                          Em
That Rita would not go into the water
                            C
Picture the scene, mothers, fathers, ice-creams
D                                    Em
Huddled 'round their little sons and daughters


[Verse 2]
          G                 D/F#           Em
Well, the rain it cut right through me, it kept on pouring down
  C              D                                Em
I found a little hotel bar on the harbour side of town
  G                                   D               Em
I said I’d play for nothing since the tourists was in town
    G                D          Em
But Tuesday night is always karaoke


[Chorus]
C                D          Em
Tuesday night is always karaoke
C                D          Em
Tuesday night is always karaoke


[Verse 3]
    Em                             C
Oasis all the rage, "I'm down from Gorgy", climbed on stage
             D                                 Em
And he could hardly hold the mike for all that brandy
                                      C
He intro'ed far too late and poor old Sally had to wait
     D                                      Em
Rita hollered that some words would come in handy


[Verse 4]
G               D/F#        Em
Fathers pushing mothers up against the microphone
C               D                     Em
Sisters goading brothers, "Won't you leave the lad alone
      G                                  D               Em
And a priest from (?Nukarada?) shook his head and headed home
       G                D          Em
'Cause Tuesday night is always karaoke


[Chorus]
C                D          Em
Tuesday night is always karaoke
C                D          Em
Tuesday night is always karaoke


[Verse 5]
        G            D/F#            Em
There's only karaoke, on every scone
    C                D                               Em
The whistles and the fiddles and the bodhran stay at home
        G                               D       Em
I never heard a single mandolin or an accordion drone
       G                D          Em
'Cause Tuesday night is always karaoke


[Verse 6]
Em                              C
Jim turned Kyle Fergus with his eyes shut, lips are pursing
D                                   Em
John boy, he passed out at the next table
                                    C
Smokey Mountain Sweet, what came is good enough to eat
    D                                  Em
Jim tried to sing in tune, but was not able


[Verse 7]
    G                                  D/F#            Em
And people stood on chairs and tables, rocking to them all
C             D                                   Em
Knocking over nuns and children, laughing as they fall
    G                             D                Em
And Sister Mary Joseph, she's the biggest drunk of all
      G                 D              Em
Those singing nuns just love their Karaoke


[Chorus]
    C                D          Em
And Tuesday night is always karaoke


[Verse 7]
                         C
Hectic and electric, Casanova he's dyslexic
      D                           Em
A wee Sligo Suzanne Vega sang "Marlene"
                                    C
A coach load from Galway, cut their tour date, singing "My Way"
     D                           Em
Vigo did the stupid dance in Macarena


[Verse 8]
        G                    D/F#                Em
And the priest appeared from nowhere with "The Fields Of Athenry"
      C                  D                      Em
And a Welshman murdered "Vincent" and "American Pie"
      G                                      D            Em
And a fight broke out when someone said, his lady must be dry
    G             D               Em
But no one really cares, it's karaoke


[Chorus]
    C                D          Em
And Tuesday night is always karaoke


[Verse 9]
                                                   C
There were fiddlers from Ross Trevor who'd like so much, they'd stay forever
    D                              Em
And Sister Mary Joseph stood there screaming
                                                 C
She lifted up her skirt, she grabbed the nearest priest, she began to flirt
        D                                             Em
And the tour guide said, "They offered me a job, am I dreaming"


[Verse 10]
         G                 D/F#             Em
Then the police arrived in wagons like some extras from The Sting
         C              D                    Em
And they called for reinforcements, as their mobile phones did ring
     G                                         D                        Em
They shouted at her, "Hey, Sister Mary Joseph, do you know what time it is?"

And she said, "No, but you hum it and I'll sing"


[Chorus]
      C                D          Em
Cause Tuesday night is always karaoke
C                D          Em
Tuesday night is always karaoke


[Verse 11]
                               C
"Get thee to a nunnery", cried Father Michael Tullery
     D                              Em
Your behaviour here tonight is sacrilegious
                                          C
Sister Mary Joseph took the floor and the crowd all called for more
        D                            Em         G
And old Barry Manilow covers were contagious


[Verse 12]
                D/F#              Em
They took their lighters and they waved them in the air
      C                           D           Em     G
She'd gone on stage to strut her "Londonderry Air"
             D      Em
She tore her habit, there's her underwear
      G                 D              Em
Those singing nuns just love their Karaoke


[Chorus]
    C                D          Em
And Tuesday night is always karaoke


[Verse 13]
                             C
Oh, there's only karaoke, on every scone
    D                                Em
The whistles and the fiddles and the bodhran stay at home
                                        C
I never heard a single mandolin or an accordion drone
       D                           Em
'Cause Tuesday night is always karaoke


[Chorus]
C                D          Em
Tuesday night is always karaoke
C                D          Em
Tuesday night is always karaoke
