Intro: Bm7 Bm7   G7 G7  G7 G7  G7 



Verse 1: 

           Bm7       G7
When they beat on a broken guitar
           Bm7                  G7  
And on the streets they reek of tropical charms
          Bm7        G7
The embassies lie in hideous shards
       A#7               A7       
Where tourists snore and decay 


Verse 2: 

           Bm7       G7
When they dance in a reptile blaze 
           Bm7       G7
You wear a mask an equatorial haze
         Bm7      G7
Into the past a colonial maze
              A#7                 A7
Where there's no more confetti to throw 


Chorus 1: 

G#m7          C#7                    G#m7     
   You didn't know what to say to yourself
              C#7                  F#m7
   Love is a poverty you couldn't sell
B7                         E7
   Misery waiting in vague hotels....
       G7 F#7
   To be evicted....


Instrumental Break 1: Bm7 Bm7  G7 G7  G7 G7  G7 
(x2)


Verse 3: 

              Bm7                 G7
You're out of luck you're singing funeral songs
       Bm7              G7
To the studs they're anabolic and bronze
             Bm7              G7
They seem to strut in their millennial fogs
         A#7           A7
Til they fall down and deflate 


Chorus 2: 

G#m7          C#7                    G#m7     
   You didn't know what to say to yourself
              C#7                  F#m7
   Love is a poverty you couldn't sell
B7                         E7
   Misery waiting in vague hotels....
       G7 F#7
   To be evicted.... 


Instrumental Break 2: Bm7 Bm7  G7 G7  G7 G7  G7 
(x2)


Verse 4: 

Bm7    G7                  Bm7
Oh and now you've had your fun
         G7              Bm7
Under an air-conditioned sun
     G7               Bm7
It's burned into your eyes
           G7             Bm7
Leaves you plain and left behind
  G7                Bm7
I see them eyes and fall
         A7                 G#7
Into the jaws of a pestilent love 


Chorus 3: 

G#m7          C#7                    G#m7     
   You didn't know what to say to yourself
              C#7                  F#m7
   Love is a poverty you couldn't sell
B7                         E7
   Misery waiting in vague hotels....
       G7 F#7
   To be evicted....
