Busy Bodies  Elvis Costello



So you think th[D]at you have seen her,     [A/C#]
When you?re lying in [D/F#]between her  [G]
And you tell me[D] that you don?t care  [A/C#]
Busy bodi[D/F#]es getting nowhere     [G]
Everybo[D]dy?s getting meaner         [G]
Busy bodies [D]caught in t[A]he concertina         [D]   [D/F#]      [G]     [D]   [Bm7]     [A]
[D]You check her outline, br[G]eak her re[E]gulations        [A]
[F#/C#]You watch her legs[Bm/D] through several service s[E]tations      [A]   [G]
[F#m]Busy bodies, ve[F]ry busy, getting[Em] nowhere         [A7]
Nowhere, nowhere, nowhere

Now you?re ready for [D]a merger      [A/C#]
With the company [D/F#]you?re part of      [G]
And you do the [D]dirty business    [A/C#]
With your latest [D/F#]sleeping partner     [G]
You?re becoming a[D]utomatic     [G]
Busy bodies[D] out play[A]ing with the traffic          [D]   [D/F#]      [G]     [D]   [Bm7]     [A]

[D]You want attention[G]. You t[E]ry my patience         [A]
[F#/C#]With the best intent[Bm/D]ions you are nothing but [E]a nuisance     [A]         [G]
[F#m]Busy bodies, bu[F]sy busy, getting[Em] nowhere      [A7]
Nowhere, nowhere, nowhere

Now you?ve given your[D] performance       [A/C#]
Though the matinee w[D/F#]as idle        [G]
And you find ou[D]t that a wave of    [A/C#]
Her right hand [D/F#]could seem so tidal         [G]
Just a second [D]satisfaction  [G]
Busy bodies [D]temp         [A]                      [D] [D/F#] [G] [D] [Bm7] [A]
