Busy bodies

Elvis Costello



 DA/C#
So you think that you have seen her,      
 D/F#G
When you´re lying in between her   
 DA/C#
And you tell me that you don´t care   
 D/F#G
Busy bodies getting nowhere      
 DG
Everybody´s getting meaner          
 DADD/F#GDBm7A
Busy bodies caught in the concertina                                

 DGEA
 You check her outline, break her regulations         
 F#/C#Bm/DEAG
 You watch her legs through several service stations          
 F#mFEmA7
 Busy bodies, very busy, getting nowhere          

Nowhere, nowhere, nowhere

 DA/C#
Now you´re ready for a merger       
 D/F#G
With the company you´re part of       
 DA/C#
And you do the dirty business     
 D/F#G
With your latest sleeping partner      
 DG
You´re becoming automatic      
 DADD/F#GDBm7A
Busy bodies out playing with the traffic                                 

 DGEA
 You want attention. You try my patience          
 F#/C#Bm/DEAG
 With the best intentions you are nothing but a nuisance               
 F#mFEmA7
 Busy bodies, busy busy, getting nowhere       

Nowhere, nowhere, nowhere

 DA/C#
Now you´ve given your performance        
 D/F#G
Though the matinee was idle         
 DA/C#
And you find out that a wave of     
 D/F#G
Her right hand could seem so tidal          
 DG
Just a second satisfaction   
 DADD/F#GDBm7A
Busy bodies temp
