A Century Of Fakers  Belle and Sebastian

[D]There are people going hungry every d[A]ay
They've got [G]nothing on their pl[D]ates
And you're f[G]illing your fat f[D]ace with every d[A]ifferent kind of c[A]ake
And if you ever go l[D]ardy, or go l[A]ame
I will d[G]rop you straight a[D]way
That's the p[G]rice you have to p[D]ay
For every st[A]upid thing you [A]say

There are people going l[D]onely, and they'll st[A]ay
Lonely f[G]ay into the y[D]ear
Because you're m[G]aking blinkers f[D]ashionable
And f[A]ashionably you'll s[A]ay
"All is equal in l[D]ove and war" and
"I'm s[A]orry, but I've [G]got some things to [D]do"
And you pr[G]etend to read a b[D]ook you'll never f[A]inish till the d[A]ay

[Bm]That the author dedicates it
[G]To A Century Of Fakers
[D]They took your mould and they burned it on the fire in h[A]istory today
Yeah, the author d[Bm]edicates it
To A Cent[G]ury Of Fakers
He was an a[D]narchist, he tried his best but it w[A]asn't good enough
middle(la...): A A G D A A G D

(verse 2 the same as verse 1)
Did I say I would see you soon?
Well I'm sorry, but i just came off my bike
And my face is scarred
And chance has barred me seeing you tonight
I was over the other side of the city
And if the truth be known I'd say
That you look great from there before you shaved your golden hair today

Everybody's t[Bm]rying to make us
Another centu[G]ry of fakers
They took you m[D]ould and burned it on the fire of h[A]istory today
Everybody's t[Bm]rying to make us
Another cool dec[G]ade of fakers  [D]   [G]
Everybody's tr[D]ying to make us
Another centu[G]ry of fakers

(End on D)
