Marx And Engels Belle and Sebastian
There is [D]misery in all I[A] hear and see, from the [G]people on T.V. [D]
After their [C]tea when life be[G]gins again, they'll be [Em]happier than [A]me
There are a [D]thousand meals being made on[A] Saturday
From the [G]view I saw toda[D]y, I took a be[C]t inside the [G]launderette,
With a [Em]girl from Walle[A]sey
She spoke in [D]dialect, I could not[A] understand, but one [G]thing that
She made [D]clear, there was no [C]coming on to [G]her, there was no [D]way.
Interlude from D: A G D C G Em A x2
There was no [C]coming on to [G]her, there was no i[G]ntellect, that she
[Em]Could respect, if it [D]couldn't see, that the [C]girl just wants to b[Em]e
Left al[G]one with Marx and [D]Engels for awhile,
She's [C]writing in style, of a[Em]ny riot girl.[A]
What a ballad; Aquinas says 'pulcra sunt quae visa placent'
...perhaps if Belle and Sebastian were around in his day,
he would have changed eyes to ears.
