The Wrens
Ex-Girl Collection
From: The Meadowlands (2003)
Lyrics from
(Note: like most Wrens' songs, there's too much going on to
accurately reflect it in one guitar part, but you should be
able to play along with this. Sorry about the lyrics in the
last verse; I'm too lazy to figure them out. Send any
corrections to
[G]Fourth [Bm]floor [Em]room
Each girl I've brought back [Am]home [Bm]to [C]bloom
All fold on [Bm]close inspection
[G]Each [Bm]one l[Em]eaves a banner hanging [Am]from [Bm]the [C]eaves
Marking the eve of el[Bm]ection
Ex-girl co[D]llection
[Am]Why[Bm]/ [C] into why [G]not
Into what else you [E]got?
It's just how men mark [Am]time[Bm] [C] [Bm]
[G] [Bm] [Em] [Am] [Bm] [C] [Bm] 
[G] [Bm] [Em] [Am] [Bm] [C] [Bm] 
[G]Ann [Bm]slams [Em]in
Another lightening [Am]round [Bm]begi[C]ns
This could get i[Bm]nteresting
[G]Where's [Bm]Ann [Em]been?
She pours herself a [Am]don't-[Bm]ask [C]gin
No ice and light on the [Bm]bitters[D]
I'm done with quitters
[Am]'Wh[Bm]y /[C] Charles, I found [G]out
Wipe that smile off your [E]mouth
I think it's tell-me [Am]tim[Bm]e..[C].'
[G]Britt [Bm]hit [Em]hard
She found my box of [Am]Beth's [Bm]best [C]cards
Hand cut and [Bm]signed with 'x's
[G]Called [Bm]at [Em]work
'Happy anni[Am]vers[Bm]ary, [C]jerk'
And I just laughed at the [Bm]timing [D]with you on hold line 2 still crying
[Am]'Wh[Bm]y /[C] play sex on the [G]cuff?
Does Beth like it [E]rough?
And learn your dirty [Am]lin[Bm]es?[C]
And keep her hair [G]cropped
(The other shoe [E]dropped)
'Is this how men mark [Am]tim[Bm]e [C]/ in couples?', she [G]cursed
(This sounds too re[E]hearsed)
As [Am]Ann, hand on hip, accusing me to the [C]rafters[G]
The [Am]words turn and spit and scorch right through to the [C]plaster[G]
I'm called 10 kinds of a [D]bastard
Curses came faster
[G]Ann [Bm]stands [Em]down
I think she thinks (some[Am]thi[Bm]ng)[C] [Bm]
[G]Ann ([Bm]som[Em]ething)
[Am](somethi[Bm]ng)[C] [Bm] [D]
[Am]Why[Bm] / [C]into why n[G]ot?
Into charles gone to [E]pot
In hotter water
[Am]Lin[Bm]e/ [C] up to lift up a [G]toast
To the ones I hurt [E]most
And how the well's gone [Am]lim[Bm]e[C]
With charles on the [G]plow
I'm roger over and [E]how
Slower now men mark [Am]tim[Bm]e[C]
[Am]Why[Bm], /[C] what else you got?
(G Bm Em Am Bm C Bm x several times--you can pick out
the lead in the verse chords and sound sort of right)
