INTRO: Dm7 / Am7 / Dm7 / Am7 / Dm7 / Am / C / F / G...
	
       C              G
Hotter than a perfect lover
       C                G
Colder than a surrogate mother
            Am             C
That's what happens when a matriarch
F               G
Doesn't get her way

       C               G
She'll build a bomb in silence
      C                G
And explode it without violence
  Am             C
A matriarch will stop at nothing
F                 G
Till her point is made.
	
	F     G           C       B(bass) Am
	Don't snuggle too closely to her bosom
	F         G              C   B(bass) Am
	You'll be cluttering her velvet cushion
	F          G      C    B(bass) Am
	Shanghaied by her soft illusion -
                    F
		And bouncing off the walls
                                G
			Just to keep her sane...
 
(Chords repeated)

The goal posts will be shifted
Till her spirits are uplifted
That's what happens when a matriarch
Doesn't get her way

She'll take away your rudder
With her words all made of rubber
A matriarch will stop @ nothing
Till her point is made.

F        G       C    B(bass) Am
Then one day she tells you straight:
	        F                        Cmaj7
	"If you hate me it's because I'm great..."
                        F
		And the next day:
			G              C     B(bass) Am
		"If you love me it's because I'm great..."

           F               G
	One heart is never enough...for a soul-mate...

SOLO over VERSE chorus chords:

F             G            
Sit down Vera Lynn
C      B(bass) Am
Freely on your pumpkin.
        F
	Deftly pass the stone -
	C  B(bass) Am	
	To your next of kin
F
Bounced off the walls
     C       B(bass) Am
La-h-menting on your violin -
	F
	The state you're in:
	F                            G            
	Dogged and driven, since you left your mother's home

She'll be your greatest folly
And you her voodoo dolly
That's what happens when a matriarch 
Doesn't get her way.

She'll argue
And she'll reason
But never be fairly beaten
A matriarch will stop @ nothing
Till her point is made.

C    G
H-a-r-k
       C    G
In the dark
    Am     C      F                       G
A matriarch is getting her own way
