Thats Entertainment

In fact, the Gm is more of a Gm7 that resolves to Gm (in tune with the
la-la-la-la-las), but it's a pig to play that and sing the words (which don't
really scan properly) at the same time, so I don't bother. It sounds okay.
From: Harlan L Thompson
 A police car and a screaming siren
 Pneumatic drill and ripped up concrete
 A baby wailing, stray dog howling
 The screech of brakes and lamp light blinking
 That's entertainment, that's entertainment   
The smash of glass and the rumble of boots
An electric train and a ripped up phone booth
Paint splatters walls and the cry of a tomcat
Lights going out and a kick in the balls
I say that's entertainment, that's entertainment-Ahh! (la la la)
Days of speed and slow time Mondays
Pissing down with rain on a boring Wednesday
Watching the news and not eating your tea
A freezing cold flat, and damp on the walls
I say that's entertainment, that's entertainment
Waking up at 6am on a cool warm morning
Opening the windows and breathing in petrol
An amateur band rehearsing in a nearby yard
Watching the telly and thinking about your holidays
That's entertainment, that's entertainment-Ahh! (la la la)
Waking up from bad dreams and smoking cigarettes
Cuddling a warm girl and smelling stale perfume
A hot summer's day and sticky black tarmac
Feeding ducks in the park and wishing you were far away
That's entertainment, that's entertainment
Two lovers kissing amongst the scream of midnight
Two lovers missing the tranquility of solitude
Getting a cab and travelling on buses
Reading the grafitti about slashed seat affairs
I say that's entertainment, that's entertainment-Ahh! (la la la)
La la la... (to fade)
NOTE: At last, the complete correct words! I can't understand a thing
Paul Weller ever says, but luckily I have the lyric sheet from "Sound
Affects". P.S.- does anyone have the words for "The Bitterest Pill"? I
kind of figured out the guitar but I don't have the slightest idea what
he's saying.
(from Sound Affects, 1980)
