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
