Tiny Children  The Teardrop Explodes

This has always been one of my favourite Julian Cope songs; simple
and yet affecting. Originally done on some kind of synthesiser(s)
I guess, but nice to play on a guitar.
Key of C (mainly, but with Eb thrown in to keep it interesting.)
C Dm (x4)
Verse 1
(Each line of the verse follow this progression. Listen for timing.)
[C]Half the [Dm]time as I [Em]sit in disarray[Dm]
I am thinking of a dream I never had
Then I awake, and for a while
I call your name in Colin?s house
But tiny children have a way of falling down
Interlude 1
[Eb]Oh, I could make [Dm]a meal
[Eb]Of that wonderful[Dm] despair I feel
[Eb]But waking up I t[Dm]urn and face the w[G]all
Verse 2
(Each line of the verse follow this progression. Listen for timing.)
[C]The car a[Dm]rrives and[Em] takes me back [Dm]again
Drifting through imaginary planes
And fighting men aboard a raft
A sailing ship has run aground
And confidence is valued in these days
Interlude 2
[Eb]But each characte[Dm]r
[Eb]Is plundering my [Dm]home
[Eb]And taking everyt[Dm]hing that is my ow[G]n
Interlude 3
(Repeat this next section twice)
[Dm]Oh no, I?m not sure [C]about
[Dm]Those things that I [C]care about
[Dm]Oh no, I?m not sure,[C] not any more.[G]..
(Repeat the verse progression to fade?.)
[C] [Dm] [Em] [Dm]  
Repeating Melody

(I can't be bothered writing out all the tab, but that should be enough to get you going?)
