Pads, Paws and Claws  Elvis Costello

Pads, Paws & Claws - Elvis Costello
Main Riff:
 Bottom E -1-1-3-1-1-3-1-1-3-1-1-3-1-1-3-1-1-3-1-1-3-1-1-3

Verse One:
 Main riff -------------------------------------

She's a feline tormentor, not any vaudeville wife

But with a drunk-town lament

He leads her a miserable life
[C7]But when he[G]'s full of[E7] that beer[C]-champagne
No Chord
She pads, paws, pads, paws and claws
Verse Two:
 Main Riff-------------------------------------

And if he should wake up in some terrible dive

And he don't know if he's so-so

But he's so surprised he's alive
[C7]"Come on li[G]ttle honey[E7], let me u[C]nder your hive"
No Chord
She pads, paws, pads, paws and claws
 Main Riff--------------------

[B7]She pads, pads around the bedroom,
[A7]Practicing [C]ways to [E7]flirt
He p[A7]aws, pours another[C] drink and any[B7]thing in a skirt
Any[C7]thing wearing a necklace
 B7 ----------------------------------

He thinks of claws scratching his back

he's going out there he's not coming back
Verse 3
 Main Riff------------------

She's got spider-leg fingers,

Sharpened whenever he strays

And she carries a bird-purse,

With all of her womanly ways

While he's drinking hairspray,

She knows that he never would dare

She could be in pictures if she wasn't all covered in fur
[C7]He's coming[G] home now [E7]and here's[C] the surprise
[C7]You wouldn'[G]t believe [E7]the lies t[C]hat he tries
[C7]She cut him[G] down to h[E7]er favouri[C]te size
No Chord
She pads, paws, pads, paws and claws
 Main Riff---------------------------

She pads, paws, pads, paws and claws
