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
