My Wandering Days Are Over

Belle and Sebastian

----------------------------------------------

------
--------
 D
 Y' know my wandering days are over
 AF#m
Does that mean that I'm getting boring?
 G
You tell me

I'm tired of listening to myself, yeah
 D
I'm tired of fixing things for Michael and the rest of them

Verse 2:
--------

 D
Y' know my bip-bopping days are over
 AF#mG
I hung my boots up and then retired from the disco floor

The centre of my so called being is
 D
The space between your bed and wardrobe with the louvre doors
 A
(With the louvre doors)

Verse 3:
--------

 D
 Y' know my celibate days are over
 AF#mG
You put me straight on the finer points of my speech rehearsed

In the mirror of my steamy bathroom
 D
Where the lino tells a sorry story in a monologue
 A
 (In a monologue)

Chorus:
-------

 DG
 Six months on, the winter's gone
 DG
The disenchanted pony
 DG
 Left the town with the circus boy
 CG
The circus boy got lonely
 DG
It's summer, and it's sister song's
 DG
Been written for the lonely
 CG
The circus boy is feeling melancholy

Bridge:

D A F#m G D A (x2)

Verse 4:
--------

 D
It's got to be fate that's doing it
 AF#mG
A spooky witch in a sexy dress has been bugging me

With the story of the way it should be
 D
With the story of Sebastian and Belle the singer, yeah

Verse 5:
--------

 D
Y' know my one man band is over
 AF#mG
I hit the drum for the final time and I walked away

I saw you in Japanese restaurant
 GmD
You were doing it for business men on the piano, Belle
 A
You said it was a living Hell
 G
You said you were in Hell

Chorus 2:
---------

 DG
 Six months on, the winter's gone
 DG
The disenchanted pony
 DG
 Left the town with the circus boy
 CG
The circus boy got lonely
 DG
It's summer, and it's sister song's
 DG
Been written for the lonely
 CG
The circus boy is feeling melancholy

Chorus 3:
---------

 DG
 Six months on, the winter's gone
 DG
The disenchanted pony
 DG
 Left the town with the circus boy
 DG
The circus boy got lonely
 AF
It's summer, and it's sister song's
 AF
Been written for the lonely
 AFGF
The circus boy is feeling melancholy    

G F repeated to fade out.
The lyrics are a few words from the last 2 lines of the chorus and a bit of ad-libbing.
