Billy Liar  The Decemberists

Billy Liar's got his hands in [G]his pockets [Em]
Staring over at his neighbor[A]'s, knickers down. [Em]
[A]He's got his knickers down. [Em] [A] [D]
So the summer is eternity [G]for you? [Em]
Sleeping in until your father's shaking [A]you down [Em]
[A]He's shaking you down. [Em] [A]
And the mai[G]lroom shift gets a real short shrift
As you dole out th[F#m]e packages, no-one seems to want you around [Em]
[A]All skullking a round. [Em] [A]
CHORUS
[D]Let your legs[Bm] loll [D] [Bm] on the lino
[D]'Til you[F#m]r [Em]sinews s[G]poil [A]
[D]Will you stay h[Bm]ere for [D]a while, dear,[Bm]
[D]'Til the [F#m]radio pla[Em]ys [G]something familiar?
Plays something[A] familiar.

VERSE II (Same Chords)
All a-drifting, he's the nogood boyo
Sent a-fishing for a whalebone corset frame
(The only catch all day)
So he sits and lets the current take him
A gentle breeze will leave his pants in disarray
And at his ankles laid.
As he drifts to sleep with a moan and a weep
He is decked by a Japanese geisha with a garland of pearls
How she twists and twirls!
CHORUS (Same Chords and Words) *ADD
[D]'Til the [F#m]radio [Em] plays something familiar[G]
Plays somethi[A]ng familiar
Plays someth[Em]ing familiar
Plays somethi[A]ng familiar
