Tonight I Fancy Myself

Beautiful South

 CFCFCFCF
 CF
 She'd brought along the oranges
 CF
 He'd brought the tea
 DmFCFCF
 They'd both brought along a sick-bag just in case      

The plate of chicken sandwiches
Were lovely they agreed
 DmFCFCF
And I watched him spit the bits into her face      

"Do you love me like you used to" he sighs
 DmGCFCF
"I love you twice as much" she replies      
They were on the train to Venice, where else?
 DmGCFCF
think tonight I fancy myself      

 G
(Chorus)
 CF
I'd rather drink that toast to my own health
 CG
I think tonight I'd rather love myself
 CF
And if you drink that drink to your own health
 CGCFCF
I think tonight I'd rather love mysel     
(end Chorus)

Later in the evening
The sun came rolling down
 DmFCFCF
And they talked about their fantasies and fears      

Between the heavy breathing
And those lighter licking sounds
 DmFCFCF
heard him whisper this question in her ear      

"Would you still love me if I lost my legs?"
 DmGCFCF
"I'd see that you were loved and you were fed"      
"I end up in a car crash almost dead"
 DmGCFCF
"For richer and for partly severed head"      

(Chorus)

 AmG
 The neighbours ask them out but they flatly refuse
 AmG
 "We're saving up for a world-wide cruise"
 AmG
With a choice between loneliness and lovesick QE2's
 AmEm-G-CFCF
Well tonight I choose - self abuse       

A four-pack in the fridge
A good book on the shelf
 DmGC
think tonight I'd rather love myself
