Stop making the eyes at me, I'll stop making the eyes at you
C#5    B5        A5     F#5   C#5        B5         A5          F#5
And what it is that suprises me, is that I don't really want you to
C#5    B5        A5     F#5
And your shoulders are frozen (cold as the night)
C#5    B5        A5     F#5
Oh but you're an explosion (you're dynamite)
C#5    B5        A5     F#5   C#5        B5         A5      F#5
Your name isn't Rio, but I don't care for sand
C#5    B5        A5     F#5   C#5        B5         A5      F#5
Lighting the fuse might result in a bang, with a bang-go!

I bet that you look good on the dancefloor

Well I bet that you look good on the dancefloor
                    E5                     C#5
Dancing to electro-pop like a robot from 1984 ... from 1984!


[Verse]

C#5    B5        A5     F#5   C#5        B5         A5      F#5

C#5    B5        A5     F#5   C#5        B5         A5      F#5
Without a sound yeah you're calling me, and I don't think it's very fair
C#5    B5        A5     F#5
That your shoulders are frozen (cold as the night)
C#5    B5        A5     F#5
Oh but you're an explosion (you're dynamite)
C#5    B5        A5     F#5   C#5        B5         A5      F#5

[Bridge]

A5                        E5                 F#5
Oh there ain't no love no, Montagues or Capulets
                                   A5
Just banging tunes 'n' DJ sets 'n'
                E5                     F#5
Dirty dancefloors and dreams of naughtiness!

Fake Tales of San Francisco
A    Bm               A Bm A
Echo through the room
     Bm         A       Bm
More point to a wedding disco
    A     Bm          A  Bm A
Without a bride or groom

          Bm         A
There's a super cool band yeah
           Bm                 A            Bm     A Bm A
With their trilbies and their glasses of white wine
            Bm         A              Bm
And all the weekend rock stars in the toilets
A              Bm    A Bm A
Practicing their lines

[Chorus]

A       Bm         A Bm A
Echo through the air
              Bm        A            Bm
And there's a few bored faces in the back
    A          Bm        A     Bm A
All wishing they weren't there

           Bm              A
And as the microphone squeaks
               Bm           A
A young girl's telephone beeps
           Bm                A
Yeah she's dashing for the exit
          Bm             A          Bm
Oh, she's running to the streets outside
           A              Bm                A
"Oh you've saved me," she screams down the line
     Bm                A
"The band were fucking wank
            Bm         A
And I'm not having a nice time"

[Chorus]

Bm
I don't want to hear you
N.C.
(Kick me out, kick me out)
Bm
I don't want to hear you no
N.C.
(Kick me out, kick me out)
Bm
Yeah but his bird thinks it's amazing, though
N.C.
So all that's left
N.C.
Is the proof that love's not only blind but deaf

Song 4: Dancing Shoes
No Capo










[Verse]

G#5
Get on your dancing shoes
                         C#5   E5
There's one thing on your mind
G#5
Hoping they're looking for you
                   C#5         E5
Sure you'll be rummaging' through

G#5
And the shit, shock, horror
                         C#5   E5
You've seen your future bride
G#5
Oh, but it's oh so absurd
           C#5
For you to say the first word
            E5
So you're waiting and waiting


[Chorus]

G#5 F#5 C#5 B5 G#5
                            G#5 F#5 C#5 B5 G#5
The only reason that you came
                        G#5 F#5 C#5 B5 G#5
So what you scared for?
                           G#5 F#5 C#5 B5 G#5
don't you always do the same

It's what you there for, don't you know

G#5
...the lights are flashing
                 C#5  E5
Down in here tonight
G#5
And some might exchange a glance
             C#5            E5
But keep pretending to dance

(same chords 'till the end)

Am                 Dm
One look sends it coursing through the veins
Dm
Oh, how the feeling races
Am                  Dm
Back up to their brains
          Dm
To form expressions on their stupid faces
Am                  Dm
They don't want to say hello
                Dm
Like I want to say hello

And oh, I'm so tense, never tenser
A5          C5   D5         E5 G5
  Could all go a bit Frank Spencer
A5        C5      D5    E5 G5
  And I'm talking gibberish
A5         C5           D5       E5   G5
Tip of the tongue but I can't deliver it
A5  C5  D5  E5 G5

     Am     Dm
Everybody's trying to crack the jokes and that
    Dm
To make you smile
  Am                    Dm
Those that claim that they're not showing off
     Dm
Are drowning in denial
      Am                 Dm
But they're not half as bad as me
    Dm
Say anything and I'll agree
                Am             Dm
'Cause when it comes to acting up
    Dm
I'm sure I could write the book

And now that you're more than a part in the play
              Dm        C          Am
It's slightly easier to think what to say
Dm         C     Am
You had us all, standing on our heads

Doing our best tricks, yeah

One look sends it coursing through the veins

Song 7: Riot Van
No Capo











              Dmaj7 C#m7
Up rolled the riot van
   Bm7                              Dmaj7 C#m7
And sparked excitement in the boys
   Bm7                          Dmaj7 C#m7
But the policemen look annoyed
   Bm7                                    Dmaj7 C#m7 Bm7
Perhaps these are ones they should avoid

A                          C#m7                        Bm7          E  E6  E
They got a chase last night from men with truncheons dressed in hats
A                             C#m7                              Bm7
They didn't do that much wrong, still ran away though for the laugh
                   E  E6  E
just for the laugh

            Dmaj7   C#m7
Please just stop talking
                    Bm7              Dmaj7 C#m7
Because they won't find us if you do
           Bm7               Dmaj7 C#m7
Oh, those silly boys in blue
            Bm7                     Dmaj7 C#m7 Bm7
Well, they won't catch me and you

A                          C#m7                     Bm7      E  E6  E
Have you been drinking son, you don’t look old enough to me
A                      C#m7                          Bm7
I’m sorry officer, is there a certain age you’re supposed to be?
       E  E6  E
nobody told me

              Dmaj7 C#m7
Up rolled the riot van
            Bm7                         Dmaj7 C#m7
And these lads just wind the coppers up
     Bm7                                Dmaj7 C#m7
Ask why they don't catch proper crooks
       Bm7                              Dmaj7 C#m7
Get their address and their names took
          Dmaj7
But they couldn't care less

                     Dmaj7 C#m7
He got thrown in the riot van
    Bm7                            Dmaj7 C#m7
And all the coppers kicked him in
     Bm7                           Dmaj7 C#m7
And there was no way he could win
      Bm7                        Dmaj7 C#m7 Bm7
Just had to take it on the chin












Song 8: Red Light Indicates Doors Are Secured
Capo 2












[Intro]
Em

[Verse 1]
Em7 Em                                  Em7 Em
       We'll ask if we can have six in
                             Em7 Em
If not we'll have to have two
                                              Em7 Em
Well, you're coming up at our end aren't you?
                        Em7 Em
So I'll get one with you
                            Em7 Em
Won't he let us have six in?
                             Em7 Em
Especially not with the food
                                     Em7 Em
He could have just told us no, though
N.C
    He didn't have to be rude
Em7 Em                                   Em7 Em
      You see her with the green dress?
                           Em7 Em
She talked to me at the bar
                                             Em7 Em
Well how come it's already two-pound fifty?
                            Em7 Em
We've only gone about a yard
                                  Em7 Em
Didn't you see she were gorgeous?
                       Em7 Em
She were beyond belief
                                                  Em7 Em
But this lad at the side drinking his Smirnoff Ice
          Em
Came and paid for her Tropical Reef


[Chorus]
         A
And I'm sitting going backwards
       G
And I didn't want to leave
        A
I said "It's High Green, mate
D    Em  D         Em
Via Hillsborough, please"


[Verse 2]
Em7 Em                                         Em7 Em
      Well, how funny were that sketch earlier
                       Em7 Em
Up near that taxi rank?
                                Em7 Em
Oh no, you would have missed it
                                        Em7 Em
Think it were when you went to the bank
                                          Em7 Em
These two lads squaring up proper shouting
                         Em7 Em
I were next in the queue
                                       Em7 Em
The kind of thing that'd seem so silly
                                    Em7 Em
But not when they've both had a few

[Chorus 2]
       A
Well, calm down, temper, temper
      G
You shouldn't get so annoyed
             A                       G
Well, you're acting like a silly little boy
          A
Oh, they wanted to be men
             G
And do some fighting in the street
         A
He said "No surrender
D    Em   D    Em
No chance of retreat"

'Cause I didn't want to leave

I said "It's High Green, mate
  D  Em   D        Em
Via Hillsborough, please!"


[Verse 3]
Em7 Em                                Em7 Em
      Drunken plots hatched to jump it
                           Em7 Em
Ask around, "Are you sure?"
                                          Em7 Em
Went for it but the red light was showing
                                    Em
And red light indicates doors are secure

Capo 2













[Verse 1]
Em                G            Bm
   I've seen your eyes as they fix on me
    G          Em         G               Bm          G
   What is he doing? What on earth's the plan, has he got one?
Em             G            Bm
   You better give me some pointers
         G            Em         G           Bm           G
   Since you are the big rocket launcher and I'm just the shotgun
Em             G          Bm         G
   I ain't got no dollar signs in my eyes
              Em        G             Bm         G
   That might be a surprise but it's true, said, I'm not like you
Em             G           Bm             G
   And I don't want your advice or your praise
Em            G               Bm     G
   Or to move in the ways you do and I never will


[Chorus]
Am G
    'Cause all you people are vampires

    And though you pretend to stand by us
Am G
    I know you're certain we'll fail

   Your snarl is just so condescending!
Em              G               Bm       G
   Trying to explain that we're on to a win
          Em         G         Bm                G
   If the fee we get in near recoups what we're spending
Em                      G               Bm            G
   He said, "I can't believe that you drove all that way
             Em           G            Bm           G
   Well how much did they pay ya? How much did they pay ya?
Em                  G         Bm        G
   You'd have been better to stay round our way
Em           G                Bm           G
   Thinking about things but not actually doing the things"


[Chorus]

  So who's that girl there?
Emaj7
  I wonder what went wrong
             Ebm
So that she had to roam the streets
      Emaj7
She don't do major credit cards
    Ebm
I doubt she does receipts

Just give him half a chance

I bet he'll rob you if he can
   Emaj7
Can see it in his eyes, yeah
         Ebm
That he's got a driving ban

G#m                      Ebm
  And I've seen him with girls of the night
   G#m                     Ebm
And he told Roxanne to put on her red light
G#m                        Ebm
  They're all infected but he'll be alright
           C#m        Ebm            E  F#  (start strumming on this line)
Cause he's a scumbag, don't you know

I said he's a scumbag, don't you know!

Sorry love I'll have to turn you down

She understands she's here to get picked up

And she's delighted when she sees him
G              F#(v2)             Bm
Pulling in and giving her the eye
G              F#(v2)             Bm
Because she must be fucking freezing
G              F#(v2)             Bm
Scantily clad beneath the clear night sky
G              F#(v2)             Bm
She don't stop in the winter, no and...


[Chorus]

 Em           F#m               Bm
They said it changes when the sun goes down
  Em           F#m               Bm
And they said it changes when the sun goes down
 Em           F#m               Bm
And they said it changes when the sun goes down
 Em           F#m               Bm
Around here
 Em           F#m               Bm
They said it changes when the sun goes down
 Em           F#m               Bm
And they said it changes when the sun goes down
  Em           F#m               Bm
And they said it changes when the sun goes down
 Em           F#m               Bm
Around here
A       F#m
Around here


[Outro]

B               Eb7
What a scummy man
Emaj7
Just give him half a chance
           Ebm
I bet he'll rob you if he can
   Emaj7                                Ebm
Can see it in his eyes that he's got a nasty plan
              C#m        Ebm            E  F#
I hope you're not involved at all

(not too sure what is here, mess about in Bb)

Finish on B

Last night these two bouncers
  B
And one of em's alright

The other one's the scary one
   D               Em
His way or no way, totalatarian
B
He's got no time for you

Looking or breathing
D
How he don't want you to
Em
So step out the queue

   B
He makes examples of you

And there's nowt you can say
D                       Em
 Behind they go through to the bit where you pay
  B
And you realise then that it's finally the time
D                         Em
To walk back past ten thousand eyes in the line

___[Riff 1]
        B
And you can swap jumpers and make another move
D                      Em
Instilled in your brain you've got something to prove
B
To all the smirking faces and the boys in black
D
Why can't they be pleasant?
Em
Why can't they have a laugh?
B
He's got his hand in your chest

He wants to give you a duff
D                          Em
Well secrectly I think they want it all to kick off
B
They want, arms flying everywhere and

Bottles aswell it's just
D
Something to talk about
Em
A story to tell you

___[Riff 2]
     B
     Well I'm so glad they turned us all away we'll put it down to fate
___[Riff 2]
     B
     I thought a thousand million things that I could never say this morning
_[Riff 2]
     B
      Got too deep, but how deep is too deep?
___[Riff 2]


[Bass]

B
This town's a different town today
D                   Em                   B
 This town's a different town to what it was last night
                       D                Em
You couldn't have done that on a Sunday..

B
That girl's a different girl today
D                       Em                      B
  Said that girl's a different girl to her you kissed last night
                       D                Em
You couldn't have done that on a Sunday    Of course no.

B  D  Em   [2x] [with distortion]


B
 Last night what we talked about
D             Em
It made so much sense
           B
But now the haze has ascended
                       D       Em
It don't make no sense anymore

Song 13: A Certain Romance
No Capo










[Verse]

B
Well oh they might wear classic Reeboks
B
Or knackered Converse
B
Or tracky bottoms tucked in socks
E
But all of that's what the point is not
                                Em
The point's that there ain't no romance around there
B
And there's the truth that they can't see
B
They'd probably like to throw a punch at me
B      E
And if you could only see them, then you would agree
Em
Agree that there ain't no romance around there
(The verses are all upstroked, like kinda ska rythm n that)


[Chorus]

    G#m             F#m
You know, oh it's a funny thing you know
      E
We'll tell 'em if you like
      Em
We'll tell 'em all tonight
              B
They'll never listen
            G#m
Cause their minds are made up
    C#m                     F#                 B
And course it's all okay to carry on that way


[Verse 2]

B
And over there there's broken bones
B
There's only music, so that there's new ringtones
E
  And it don't take no Sherlock Holmes
                     Em
To see it's a little different around here
B
Don't get me wrong, oh there's boys in bands
B
And kids who like to scrap with pool cues in their hands
E
And just cause he's had a coupla cans
                          Em
He thinks it's alright to act like a dickhead


[Chorus]

    G#m             F#m
You know, oh it's a funny thing you know
      E
We'll tell 'em if you like
      Em
We'll tell 'em all tonight
              B
They'll never listen
            G#m
Cause their minds are made up
    C#m                     F#
And course it's all okay to carry on that way

Cause their minds are made up
    C#m                     F#
And course it's all okay to carry on that way

       G#m
I said no
   F#m
Oh no!
       E               Em
Oh you won't get me to go!
B         G#m
Anywhere, said anywhere
  C#m       F#
I won't go
          B
Oh no no!


[Verse]

B
Well over there there's friends of mine
B
What can I say, I've known 'em for a long long time
E
And yeah they might overstep the line
                       Em               B
But I just cannot get angry in the same way
B
Not in the same way
                E
Not in the same way
             Em
Oh no, oh no no










Thank You!!!
