Tabbed by Daniel Finn (finn.dan@gmail.com)      01:19 06/09/2005

First tab written down properly, so it's a bit scratchy. Seems like a lot of chords, 
but once you figure it out it's all simple progressions and patterns, nice and easy :)
Am working on tabbing the lead, but will take a while as I'm only a rhythm guitarist.
Anything you spot wrong, or tips to give me, email me at finn.dan@gmail.com

Standard tuning: EADGBe
No Capo

[Verse]

D                F#
Well, now then Mardy Bum
G
I see your frown and it's like 
F#m             Em
looking down the barrel of a gun
                D
And it goes off
                        F#
And out come all these words
              G             F#m
Oh, there's a very pleasant side to you
  Em                    A
A side I much prefer, it's one that


[Chorus]

G(2)                 A
Laughs and jokes around
        D               A
Remember cuddles in the kitchen, yeah
        Bm
To get things off the ground and it was
G(2)            A
     up, up and away
             D             A
oh, but it's right hard to remember that
     Bm
on a day like today when you're all
G(2)            A
    argumentative and you've 
got the face on

D    F#    G    F#m    Em    A


[Verse 2]

D                    F#
Well, now then Mardy Bum
          G       F#m
Oh I'm in trouble again 
Em        A                 D
aren't I? I thought as much.
                        F#
Coz you've turned over there 
             G          F#m
Pulling that silent disappointment face 
Em                              A
The one that I can't bear.

Well, can't we...


[Chorus 2]

G(2)                 A
Just laugh and joke around?
        D               A
Remember cuddles in the kitchen, yeah
        Bm
To get things off the ground and it was
G(2)           A 
    up, up and away

             D             A
oh, but it's right hard to remember that 
     Bm
on a day like today when you're all
G(2)            A
    argumentative and you've 
got the face on.


[Verse 3]

    F#5                   G5
And yeah, I'm sorry I was late
    F#5                                      G5
But I missed the train and the traffic was a state
    F#5                                  G5
And I can't be arsed to carry on in this debate that reoccurs 
F#5                                          G5
Oh, when you say I don't care, but of course I do 
                 A5
Yeah, I clearly do.


[Solo]

D    F#    G    F#m    Em    A    x2


[Chorus 3]

  G(2)            A
So laugh and joke around
        D               A
Remember cuddles in the kitchen, yeah
        Bm
To get things off the ground and it was
G(2)           A 
    up, up and away

               D                A  
oh, but still it's right hard to remember that 
     Bm
on a day like today when you're all    (Break - wait a bar)
G(2)            A
    argumentative and you've 
                D
got the face on.
