From under the covers

Beautiful South



 DmAmBbFCDmCFDmAmBbFCDmCFDmBbFC
                                         It's six a.m. and even Big Ben
 DmBbFC
Is trying to get his head down for a kip
 DmBb
But no sooner is it down
 FC
And then it's on with dressing gown
 DmBbFC
For this city very rarely loses grip
 FCBbC
But I have a friend who's never up by ten
 FCBbC
He's fast asleep with mouth open wide
 FCBbC
He's lost a lot of jobs, but he's won a lot of friends
 FCBbC
And he says to me, he cannot tell the time
It's seven a.m. and we're coughing up the phlegm
Spitting out the taste of night before
And we'll vomit and we'll choke
Just to climb their tatty rope
Well this city has its charm and its claw
And he'll blame his clock
Or he'll say he's lost his socks
And they'll tell you that he's been bitten by a snake
His excuses are an art
>From the bottom of his heart
And he thinks of them whenever he awakes
It's eight a.m. we're on the road again
Racing for a placing at the top
And it says green for go
For the people in the know
But for the others all it says is red for stop
It's cold and it's damp
And they've dug him a grave
And the ten fifteen merchant's still in bed
And scrawled upon the headboard
For the whole wide world to see is
"Died In The Arms Of Big Ted"

Is trying to get his head down for a kip
 AmF
But no sooner is it down
 CG
And then it's on with dressing gown
 AmFCG
For this city very rarely loses grip
 CGFG
But I have a friend who's never up by 10.00
 CGFG
He's fast asleep with mouth open wide
 CGFG
He's lost a lot of jobs, but he's won a lot of friends
 CGFG
And he says to me, he cannot tell the time
 AmFCG
It's 7.00 a.m. and we're coghing up the phlegm
 AmFCG
Spitting out the taste of night before
 AmF
And we'll vomit and we'll choke
 CG
Just to climb their tatty rope
 AmFCG
Well this city has it's charm, and is't claw
 CGFG
And he'll blame his clock or he'll say he's lost his socks
 CGFG
And they'll tell you that he's been bitten by a snake
 CGFG
His excuses are an art from the bottom of his heart
 CGFG
And he thinks of them whenever he awakes

It's 8.00 a.m. and we're on the road again

For the people in the know

But for the others all it says red for stop

It's cold and it's damp and they've dug him a grave
 CGFG
And the 10.15 merchants still in bed
 CGFG
And scrawled upon the headboard for the whole wide world to see is
