[F#]Mon[Bm]day[F#] morning wake up knowing that you've got to go to school
[Bm]Tel[F#]l your mum what to expect, she says it's right out of the blue
[Bm]Do [F#]you went to work in Debenham's, because that's what they expect
[Bm]Sta[G]rt[D] i[A]n [G]Lingerie, and Doris is your supervisor
[F#]And[Bm] th[F#]e head said that you always were a queer one from the start
[Bm]For[F#] careers you say you went to be remembered for your art
[Bm]You[F#]r obsessions get you known throughout the school for being strange
[Bm]Mak[G]in[D]g life-size models of the Velvet Underground in clay
[F#]In [Bm]the[F#] queue for lunch they take the piss, you've got no appetite
[Bm]And[F#] the rumour is you never go with boys and you are tight
[Bm]So [F#]they jab you with a fork, you drop the tray and go berserk
[Bm]Whi[G]le[D] your cleaning up the mess the teacher's looking up your skirt
[A]Yo[G]u've been used,
[D]Ar[A]e [G]you calm? Settle down
[D]Wr[A]it[G]e a song, I'll sing along
[F#]Soon you will know that you are sane
[G]You're on top of the world again
My apologies for the poor chord placement in this song. I cannot
fix them as I no longer have the record, but it ought to be fairly
obvious to anyone who knows the tune well. Theo.
