La Pastie De La Bourgeoisie  Belle and Sebastian


Sunbeam shone, mousy girl on the e[G]nd pew
You'd stay h[Em]ome oh if only I'd l[Bm]et you
Am Em A, Em, A, Em A, Em, Em, Em
Le Pastie de la Bourgeoisie

Municipal pool, you're a junior life s[G]aver

And your f[Em]riends are all serious ra[Bm]vers
Le Pas[Am]tie de la Bourgeoi[D]sie
Reading Judy B[Em]lume
But you came too s[A]oon
You're too t[Em]all, much too tall for a b[G]oyfriend
They run and h[Em]ide, from your buckteeth and sp[Bm]lit ends
Don't be sc[Am]ared of the books you've r[D]ead
You're the heroi[Em]ne, you'll be doing f[A]ine
Wouldn't you l[C]ike to get away?
Bestowing the me[G]mory of good and evil
O[D]n the ones you left behind
[Em]        The heartless swine
A, Em, A, Em, A, Em, Em, Em

And you love like nobody arou[G]nd you

How you l[Em]ove, and a halo surr[Bm]ounds you
Le Pas[Am]tie de la Bourgeoi[D]sie
In the Autumn co[Em]ol say cheerio to sc[A]hool
Listen D[Em]ear, I've been watching you late[G]ly
If I s[Em]aid all these things you would h[Bm]ate me
Le Pas[Am]tie de la Bourgeoi[D]sie
At the Church ba[Em]zaar  I nearly went too f[A]ar
Wouldn't you li[C]ke to get away
Kerouac's be[G]ckoning with open arms
And o[D]pen fields of eucalyptus  w[Em]estward bound
Wouldn't you li[C]ke to get away
Give yourself [G]up to the allure of
Catcher [D]In The Rye
The future's swathed in S[Em]tars and Stripes
-----Last two choruses X 2

End : Em, A, Em, A, Em, A, Em, Em
