For What Is Chatteris...  Half Man Half Biscuit







[G]One way system, smooth and commendable
[D]Go by bus, they're highly dependable
The [C]swings in the park for the kids have won awards
[Am]The clean streets, ac[D]knowledged in the Lords
[G]But what's a park if you can't see a linnet
[Em]A timetable if your journey's infinite
[Am]My bag's packed and I'm leaving in a minute
[D]For what is Chatteris without you in it?
Riff A x2
[G]Car crime's low, the gun crime's lower
[D]The town hall band's CD, it's a grower
You [C]never hear of folk getting knocked on the bonce
[Am]Although there was a drive by [D]shouting once
[G]But there's a brass band everywhere
[Em]And I don't drive, so I don't care
And as a [Am]nightingale sang in Berkeley Square
[D]What's Chatteris if you're not there?
Em - C - G - D - Daug
Em - C - G - D - Daug
Riff A x2
Like a [G]game-bird reserve short on pheasants
[Em]Weavers' cottages devoid of tenants
A [Am]market town that lacks quintessence
[D]That's Chatteris without your presence
[G]Three good butchers, two fine chandlers
An [D]indoor pool and a first class cake shop
[C]OFSTED plaudits, envy of the fens
[Am]Prick barriers at [D]both ends
[G]But what's Chatteris if you're not there?
[Em]What's Chatteris if you're not there?
[Am]What's Chatteris if you're not there?
[D]What's Chatteris if you're not there?
[G]What's Chatteris if you're not there?
[E]What's Chatteris if you're not there?
 Am D G - D - G - D - G - D - G - D/F# - G

I may as well be in Ely or St. Ives
