The Stars Of Track And Field
Belle and Sebastian
Album: If You're Feeling Sinister

A              E           G
Make a new cult every day to suit your affairs
A               E             D
Kissing girls in English, at the back of the stairs
F                                 A
You're a honey, with a following of innocent boys
           D
They never know it
                  A
Because you never show it
                   E
You always get your way
A         D
They never know it
                   A
Because you never show it
                    E
You always get your way

A                      E              G
Have you and her been taking pictures of your obsessions?
A               E                    D
Because I met a kid who went through one of your sessions
F                                 
In his blue velour and silk
       A
You liberated
                D
A boy I never rated
                        A
And now he's throwing discuss
                   E
For Liverpool and Widnes
A         D
You liberated
                   A
A boy I never rated
                   E
And now he's doing business

E                                Am E
The stars of track and field, you are
                                Am Em
The stars of track and field, you are
                                 D
The stars of track and field are beautiful people

A                  E              G
Could I write a piece about you now that you've made it?
A               E                    D
About the hours spent, the emptiness in your training
F                                 
You only did it so that you could wear
A                 D 
Your terry underwear
           A     
And feel the city air
            E
Run past your body
                   
A                 D 
Your terry underwear
           A     
And feel the city air
            E
Run past your body


A                  E           G
Could I write a requiem for you when you're dead?
A                        E                    D
"She had the moves, she had the speed, it went to her head"
F                                 
She never needed anything 
           A
to get her round the track
               D                 
But when she's on her back
           A     
She had the knowledge
                E
To get her into college

               D                 
But when she's on her back
           A     
She had the knowledge
                E
To get her what she wanted


E                                Am E
The stars of track and field, you are
                                Am Em
The stars of track and field, you are
                                 D
The stars of track and field are beautiful people

E                                Am E
The stars of track and field, you are
                                Am Em
The stars of track and field, you are
                                 D
The stars of track and field are beautiful people
