Intro: Bm Em Bm Em

Verse:

[Bm]Don't just stand there watching it happening

[Em]I can't stand it
Don't feel it

[Bm]Something's telling me
Don't wanna go [Em]out this way

But have a nice day


Pre Chorus:

[Bm]Then read it in the headline[Em]s
[Bm]Watch it on the T[Em]V
[Bm]Put it in the backgroun[Em]d
[Bm]Stick it in the back
Stick it in the bac[Em]k

Chorus:

[A]For the beautiful occupation
[G]The beautiful occupation
[A]You don't need an invitation
[G]To drop in upon a nation

I'm too cynical
I'm just sitting here
I'm just wasting my time
Half a million civillians gonna die today
But look the wrong way

Then read it in the headlines
Watch it on the TV
Put it in the background
Stick it in the back
Stick it in the back

For the beautiful occupation
The beautiful occupation
You don't need an invitation
To drop in upon a nation

Don't just stand there watching it happening
I can't stand it
Don't feel it
Something telling me
Don't wanna go out this way
But have a nice day

Then read it in the headlines
Watch it on the TV
Put it in the background
Stick in the back
Stick in the back

For the beautiful occupation
The beautiful occupation
Don't need an invitation
To drop in upon a nation

The beautiful occupation
The beautiful occupation
So much for an intervention
Don't call the united nations
