Arctic Monkeys


[Intro] 
C Em Dm


[Verse 1]

C                   Em                         Dm
Well this is a good idea he wouldn't do it if it wasn't
He wouldn't do it if it wasn't one.
C                  Em                          Dm
Well my friend fancies you, oh what a way to begin it all
You said it's always exciting words to hear


[Pre-Chorus]

       Em                                   Dm
And we woke up together not quite realising how
                            Em                            Dm
Awkwardly stretching and yawning, its always hard in the morning


[Chorus]

Em                                 Dm
And I suppose that's the price you pay
                    Em                                      Dm
Oh it isn't what it was, she's thinking he looks different today
and oh there's nothing left to guess now.


[Solo] 
C Em Dm


[Verse 2]

C                           Em                                Dm
You left before the lights came on because you didn't want to ruin
All the lust that was brewing before he absolutely had to
C                    Em                         Dm
And how can you wake up with someone you don't love?
And not feel slightly fazed by it oh, he had a struggle


[Pre-Chorus]

        Em                                   Dm
And you woke up together not quite realising how
                             Em                             Dm
Awkwardly stretching and yawning it's always hard in the morning


[Chorus]

Em                                 Dm
And I suppose that's the price you pay
                    Em                                      Dm
Oh it isn't what it was, she's thinking he looks different today
and oh there's nothing left to guess now.


[Bridge]

C                             Am
Quick let's leave before the lights come on
             Dm                 Am
Cos then you don't have to see
             Dm                         F
Cos then you don't have to see what you've done   
C                             Am
Quick let's leave before the lights come on
             Dm                 Am
Cos then you don't have to see
             Dm                         F
Cos then you don't have to see what you've done   


[Instrumental] 
Am    G     F      E


I'll walk you up, what time's the bus come?
