But its blood from broken hearts that write the words to every song
a beautific smile, for all the sinners

fire an damn nation, lamntation.

C.B.Bb

Verse
You might wanna stick one on his nose,
Ram his teeth down his (drug cold arm??)
and nowhere else to go,

In the Morning theres a buzz of flies,
Between the Pillows and the Skies that break into your eyes,
Through the Looking Glass inbetween your thighs,
Ah, its really no small surprise,
How it goes straight down the rabbit hole,

There it goes

Chorus
I've been meaning to tell you,
A set of mental things,
that occured to me,
I've been waiting to show you,
All a set of photographs,
make you laugh and smile,

He's got a Scottish Fiver up his nose,

oh, a set of mental things, (of sentimental things?)
That occured to me
I was wanting to show you,
All a set of photographs,
But you came and went too fast,

In the Morning theres a buzz of flies,
Break into your eyes,
Through the Looking Glass inbetween your thighs,

F
lust of the libertines
                Bb
is really quite tame
                         F
It rages quite nice here beside you
                  Bb
and your lust for fame
                           F
well fames such a sinister game, i know
                          Bb
it could all end this way then
                        F
some things wont be the same
                                 Bb
i'm just a face, and a name on a page
                     F
well i'll be soundly sleeping, i'll be soundly sleeping
                               Bb
i'll sleep right through that age

verse
                             F
well i can deal with all the blood on my shoes

and the holes in my soul
                                       Bb
my spirit is tainted all my tears are fainted

Dm            Bb
cut me on the wall

by the graffiti of all the the things i just couldn't say
F                Dm
shove me up the wall
Bb                            F  
oh my darling was the kind of loving now
C                            F
you've left me in the family way again

verse 2 (as verse 1)

the dust on my tambourine
really can be explained
i need to shake it more often
shake away the blame
well fames such a sinister game
oh i know
the taste of goulash in your mouth as you stumble off stage
forget-me-nots bloom on this day then
but they wither with age

chorus
outro (same as verse)

			9. Do you know me


Intro Dm F C

Dm       F   C   Dm       F    C
Do you know me? I don't think so!
Do you know me? I don't think so!
You romanticize the dark and gloomy past
Trying to escape from the underclass
You darkened the bright and beautiful day
You're breaking my heart in every way

		Gm		       A
And tell me everything is dandy and fine
You're no friend of mine

Dm         F  C
I took you in and you stole from me
But you still got everything I need
You're walking so tall, you're looking so mean
You're walking so tall, you're looking so mean
But you tell me everything is dandy and fine
You're no friend of mine

(I've heard a few versions where they put in another verse here but I can't 
remember the lyrics. Sometimes they play it without the extra verse.)

Do you know me? I don't think so!
Do you know me? I don't think so!
You romanticize the dark and gloomy past
Trying to escape from the upper class
You darkened the bright and beautiful day
You're fucking up my head in every way

And tell me everything's dandy and fine
You're no friend of mine

Are you gonna heed what they say
All I'm trying to say

I'm in love with a feeling
I know that it shows

but there's a odd man over there
I don't mean to alarm you

Slapped by that slappeer and how we all laughed 

(But you laughed the loudest in 99)
you could charm the **** knees of the bees

And "saucy" you'd say and we all fell around,
rolling round the playground,
"cheeky" you'd say and we all fell around,
rolling round the playground

All the boys together
All the girls together now

A        E           D       A
Shes the last of the English roses
Shes the last of the English roses

Round the snooker table she danced frutti tutti
then thy spilt the lager toasting to girls of great beauty

she knows her faralis from her paradas of her kappas from her reebok
of her Rodney for her stanley of her milado from her taste

I'll tell you a story but you wont listen,

its about a nightmare deep in tradition,
B B B Bb B C B Bb B B
its a story of a coked up pansy,

who spent his life in nights of fancy 

met two fellas of a gin and mixer

they talked for a while and soon ot the picture

one was a soho drugged up mixer

the other was a pikey with a knowedge of scripture
