VERSE 1:

C       F        | F                C    |
Someday boy you'll reap what you've sown
       F       C                | F       G   |
You'll catch a cold and you'll be on your own
    F        C             | F          C   |
And you will see that what's wrong with me
   F          C            | 
Is wrong with everyone that
Dm                    G              | F C |
You want to play your little games on

C          F     | F                C     |
Poetry and flowers pretty words and threats
F                  C            | F               G   | 
You've gone to the dogs again and i'm not placing bets
       F      C          | F            C     |
On you coming home tonight anything but blind
   F               C               | Dm            G    | 
If you take me for granted then you must expect to find

Surprise, surprise
C(8) Em(7) Am(5) |

G            | F                | C               | C        | 
If you want to talk about it well you know where the phone is
G                | E         | F               | Fm     |
Don't come round reminding me again how brittle bone is
C                   | G   | F                   | G     
God didn't make you an angel the devil made you a man
      | C         | E            |F             | Fm        |
That brutality and economy are related now I understand
             C           | E      | F            | Fm        |
When will you realise that as above so below there is no love

VERSE 3:
       C                      |  G     | 
For the girl with the hour glass figure
     F            | G    |
Time runs out very fast
   C              | E              | F              | Fm   |
We used to want the same things but that's all in the past
    C                  | E                      |
And lately it seems that as it all gets tougher
 F                         | Fm                        |
Your ideal of justice just becomes rougher and rougher

Thank you for the things you bought me thank you for the card
F                 C                  | F               G   |

     F                C            | F             C        | 
That love between two people must be based on understanding
  F                      C               |
Until that's true you'll find your things
 Dm                    G         | F         C     |
All stacked out on the landing, surprise, surprise
C(8) Em(7) Am(5) |
