Riot Act  Elvis Costello



[A] [Dm] F[A]orever [Dm] [A]
doesn't [Dm]mean for[C]ever anymore [F]
[A]I [Dm]said forev[A]er
But it doesn't [Dm]look like I'm gonna be a[C]round much anymore[F]
[D]When the heat gets [G]so tropical
[Bm]And the talk gets[Em] so topical
D D/C Bm7 (can use B5)
Riot act - you can read me the riot act
BbMAJ7 Em7
You can make me a matter of fact
Or a [A]villain in a million
A [Em7]slip of the tongue is gonna [A]keep me civilian
[C#m]Why do you talk [C]such stupid non[Bm]sense
When my mind[Bb] could rest much [A]easier
[C#m]Instead of [C]all this dumb dumb [Bm]insolence
I would be [Bb]happier with amn[A]esia
[A]They [Dm]say forget [A]her
Dm c F
Now it looks like you're either gonna be before me or against me
[A]I [Dm]got your let[A]ter
Now they say I [Dm]don't care for the [C]color that it [F]paints me
[D]Trying to be so [G]bad is bad enough
[Bm]Don't make me [Em]laugh by talking tough
[D]Don't put your [G]heart out on your sleeve
[Em]When your remarks are off the cuff
Chorus . . . . . .
