Del Amitri - Nothing Ever Happens tab



C                                                   Am7
Post office clerks put up signs saying 'Position Closed'
C                                                     Am7
And secretaries turn off typewriters and put on their coats
F                    C            G                F
Janitors padlock the gates for security guards to patrol
And bachelors phone up their friends for a drink
           G                     F
While the married ones turn on a chat show
            C              F                  C
And they'll all be lonely tonight and lonely tomorrow

C					    Am7
'Gentlemen, time please, you know we can't serve any more'
C					          Am7
Now the traffic lights change to stop when there's nothing to go
F		                  C
And by five' o' clock everything's dead
G		     F
And every third car is a cab,
And ignorant people sleep in there beds
	G		   F
Like the doped white mice in the college lab

 C           F        C                  F
Nothing ever happens, nothing happens at all:
    Am                    F
The needle returns to the start of the song
       G                   F
And we all sing along like before
           C             F                 C 
And we'll all be lonely tonight and lonely tomorrow

C				         G/B   Am7
Telephone exchanges click while there's nobody there
     C					                 Am7
The Martians could land in the car park and no one could care
    F		             C
The close-circuit cameras in department stores
          G	           F		
Shoot the same movie everyday
And the stars of these films neither die nor get killed
         G			 F     C/E Dm G/B  
Just to survive constant action replay

BRIDGE: D  Am7  D  Am7
                C  D  C/E  D/F#  C/G

C				       Am7
Bill hoardings advertise products that nobody needs
       C				                Am7
While 'Angry from Manchester' writes to complain about all the repeats on TV;
    F		      C
And computer terminals report
                  G                    F
Some gains on the values of copper and tin,
While American businessmen snap up Van Goghs
         G                  F    C/E  Dm G/B			
For the price of a hospital wing
