[Verse 1]

E
Well, oh, they might wear classic Reeboks or knackered Converse
                             A
Or tracky bottoms stucked in socks 
(A)
But all of that's what the point is not
                                Am
The point's that there ain't no romance around there

E
And there's the truth that they can't see 
(E)
They'd probably like to throw a punch at me
       A
And if you could only see them, then you would agree
                          Am
Agree that there ain't no romance around there


[Chorus]
 
    C#m              Bm
You know, oh, it's a funny thing, you know?
      A
We'll tell them if you like
      Am
We'll tell them all tonight
              E 
They'll never listen
              C#m 
Because their minds are made up
       F#m                   B * 
And 'f course it's all OK to carry on that way


[Verse 2]

E
'Cause over there there's broken bones
                                            A
There's only music, so that there's new ringtones 
(A)
And it doesn't take no Sherlock Holmes
                     Am
To see it's a little different around here 

E
Don't get me wrong though there's boys in bands
                                                   A
And kids who like to scrap with pool cues in their hands 
(A)
And just cause he's had a couple of cans
                          Am
He thinks it's alright to act like a dickhead


[Chorus]

          C#m *            Bm *
Don't you know, oh, it's a funny thing, you know?
      A *
We'll tell them if you like
      Am *
We'll tell them all tonight
              E *
They'll never listen
              C#m * 
Because their minds are made up
       F#m *                 B * 
And 'f course it's all OK to carry on that way

           C#m* 
But I said no, 
   Bm *
Oh no!
     A *                 Am *
Well you won't get me to go
       E            A
Not anywhere, not anywhere
(A) Am  ... E
Oh, yeah
