Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Billy Liar  Decemberists

Billy Liar's got his [G]hands in his pockets[Em]
Staring over at his [A]neighbor's, knickers down.[Em]
[A]He's got his knickers down.[Em]          [A]         [D]
So the summer is [G]eternity for you?[Em]
Sleeping in until your [A]father's shaking you down[Em]
[A]He's shaking you down.[Em]          [A]
And the [G]mailroom shift gets a real short shrift
As you [F#m]dole out the packages, no-one seems to want you around[Em]
[A]All skullking a[Em]round.[A]

CHORUS
[D]Let your [Bm]legs loll[D] on the [Bm]lino
[D]'Til your [F#m]sinews spoil[Em]          [G]     [A]
[D]Will you [Bm]stay here[D] for a[Bm]while, dear,
[D]'Til the [F#m]radio[Em] plays [G]something familiar?
Plays [A]something familiar.

VERSE II (Same Chords)

All a-drifting, he's the nogood boyo
Sent a-fishing for a whalebone corset frame
(The only catch all day)

So he sits and lets the current take him
A gentle breeze will leave his pants in disarray
And at his ankles laid.

As he drifts to sleep with a moan and a weep
He is decked by a Japanese geisha with a garland of pearls
How she twists and twirls!

CHORUS (Same Chords and Words) *ADD
[D]'Til the [F#m]radio[Em] plays [G]something familiar
Plays [A]something familiar
Plays [Em]something familiar
Plays [A]something familiar
