Charm School  Elvis Costello

[G]   [Dm]    [G]   [D]                           

[G]Men made out of monkeys
[D]Men made into mice
[G]Happy days are here again
And [F]all the drinks half [D]price
A [C]girl with a [Am]trick and a [Em]man with a [C]call[Em]ing   [B7]
[Em]Trying to make a living out of [B7]your downfalling

CHORUS:

[Em]TRYING TO MAKE A LIVING out of [E7]anything at all
[Am]Didn't they teach you anything ex[F]cept how to be cruel
In that [C]charm school [F]   [C]


[G]You and I as lovers
Were [D]nothing but a farce
[G]TRYING TO MAKE A SILK PURSE
[F]OUT OF A SOW'S [D]ARSE
[C]Saying 'Why [Am]don't you watch me'
[Em]Hardly speaking [C]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
And I just want to romance [Gsus4]you    [G]

[G]In this perpetual nightclub
[D]I'll be yours eternal
[G]Though the hours are long
[F]And the noise in[D]fernal
[C]JUST ONE SHAMEFUL [Am]ACT OR SOMETIMES [Em]TWO
WE MAKE [C]BELIEVE WE'RE MAKING [Em]DO

(chorus)
