Nothing Ever Happens  Del Amitri



 --------------------

[D]Post office clerks put up signs saying position clos[Bm]ed
[D]And secretaries turn off typewriters and put on their coat[Bm]s
J[G]anitors padlock the gate[D]s
For secur[A]ity guards to patrol[Bm]
And bachelor[G]s phone up their frien[D]ds for a drink
While the married one[A]s turn on a chat sho[G]w
Prechorus

And the[D]y'll all be lonely ton[G]ight and lonely tomo[D]rrow

Verse 2

[D]Gentlemen time please you know we can't serve any [Bm]more

[D]Now the traffic lights stop when theres [Bm]nothing to go
[G]And by five o clock everythings de[D]ad
[A]And every third car is a [Bm]cab
[G]And ignorant people sleep in there[D] beds
Like the do[A]pe white mice in the college la[Bm]b
Chorus
N[D]othing ever ha[G]ppens, noth[D]ing happens at all [G]
The needl[Bm]e returns to the start of the s[G]ong
And we all s[A]ing along like befo[G]re

And we'll a[D]ll be lonely ton[G]ight and lonely tomor[D]row

[D]Telephone exchanges click while theres nob[Bm]ody there
[D]The martians could land in the car park and no-one w[Bm]ould care
[G]Close-circuit cameras in departm[D]ent stores
[A]Shoot the same movie every nig[Bm]ht
[G]And the stars of these films neither died nor get killed                          [D]
Just to survi[A]ve constant action rep[Bm]lay
Chorus
N[D]othing ever hap[G]pens, noth[D]ing happens at al[G]l
The needl[Bm]e returns to the sta[G]rt of the song
And we al[A]l sing along like befo[G]re

And we'll a[D]ll be lonely ton[G]ight and lonely tomor[D]row

Play these chords (this is while accordion plays):

[Em]    [Bm]    [Em]    [Bm]    [E]   [D]   [E]   [D]            
[D]Bill hoardings advertise products that nobody n[Bm]eeds

[D]While angry from Manchester writes to complain a[Bm]bout all the repeats on tv
[G]And computer terminals report [D]some gains
[A]On the value of copper and [Bm]tin
[G]While American businessmen snap [D]up van Goths
For the pric[A]e of a hospital wing[Bm]
Chorus
[D]Nothing ever hap[G]pens, noth[D]ing happens at al[G]l
The needle[Bm] returns to the start of the s[G]ong-
And we a[A]ll sing along like befo[G]re

[D]Nothing ever ha[G]ppens, no[D]thing happens at a[G]ll

[Bm]They'll burn down the synagogues at six o cl[G]ock
And we'll all[A] go along like before [G]
And we'll a[D]ll be lonely ton[G]ight and lonely tom[D]orrow
