Charm School

Elvis Costello

 GDmGD

 G
 Men made out of monkeys
 D
 Men made into mice
 G
 Happy days are here again
 FD
And all the drinks half price
 CAmEmCEmB7
girl with a trick and a man with a calling    
 EmB7
 Trying to make a living out of your downfalling

CHORUS:

 EmE7
 TRYING TO MAKE A LIVING out of anything at all
 AmF
 Didn't they teach you anything except how to be cruel
 CFC
In that charm school     

 G
 You and I as lovers
 D
Were nothing but a farce
 G
 TRYING TO MAKE A SILK PURSE
 FD
 OUT OF A SOW'S ARSE
 CAm
 Saying 'Why don't you watch me'
 EmC
 Hardly speaking SOTTO VOCE

(chorus)

 Em
 I've got a notion
I've got an angle
 Asus4
 Take your dreams and promises
And put them through the mangle
 Dm
 They say it's hell to finance too
 Gsus4G
And I just want to romance you     

 G
 In this perpetual nightclub
 D
 I'll be yours eternal
 G
 Though the hours are long
 FD
 And the noise infernal
 CAmEm
 JUST ONE SHAMEFUL ACT OR SOMETIMES TWO
 CEm
WE MAKE BELIEVE WE'RE MAKING DO

(chorus)
