Ben Folds - Songs of Love
=========================

(( The first Version is quite good and easily playable, but imho not always 
accurate, so I'm gonna offer some corrections:

Verse 1:
C                F/C
 Pale, pubescent beasts,
                 G                  Am     Am/G
Roam through the streets and coffee-shops.
      Dm7            F
Their prey gather in herds,
                     Ebmaj7/9               C#7/9
Of stiff knee-length skirts and white ankle-socks.
    C                       F/C
But while they search for a mate,
              G        G#o7       Am    Am/G
My type hiber-nate, in bedrooms a-bove,
    D/F#         F   F/G C
Com-posing their songs of love.

Verse 2:

C               F/C
 Young, uniform minds,
           G                 Am  Am/G
In uniform lines and uniform ties.
    Dm7                     F
Run round, with trousers on fire,
                Ebmaj7/9             C#7/9
And signs of de-sire they cannot dis-guise,
      C             F/C
While I try to find words,
                G          G#o7     Am   Am/G
As light as the birds that circle a-bove,
   D/F#      F    F/G  C
To put in my songs of love.


Bridge 1:

Abmaj7        Fo7       C/G            Am7
 Fate doesn't hang on a wrong or right choice,
Abmaj7        Fo7        C/G           G
 Fortune de-pends on the tone, of your voice.

Verse 3:

   C                   F/C
So sing while you have time,
            G                  Am  Am/G
Let the sun shine, down from a-bove
    D/F#          F    F/G  C
And fill you with songs of love.



Bridge 2:

Abmaj7        Fo7       C/G            Am7
 Fate doesn't hang on a wrong or right choice,
Abmaj7        Fo7        C/G           G
 Fortune de-pends on the tone, of your voice.

Verse 3:

   C                    F/C
So sing, while we still can,
              G                Am   Am/G
While the sun hangs, high up a-bove.
D/F#       F    G   Am   Am/G
 Wonderful songs of lo..ove,
D/F#       F    G   Am   Am/G
 Beautiful songs of lo..ove,
D/F#       F    F/G  G  C      ((ritardando here))
 Beautiful songs     of love.


(( 
The D/F# is sometimes played withoud a third, more of a Dsus2/F# or 
even D7sus2/F#. Not always clear, just play as you like it...
I haven't noted all the slash chords and bass lines, only where it seemed
appropriate and sounded good :)
