Verse 3
A                                         D
Getting drugged up with my trendy friends
A
They really dig me and I dig them
          D           Bm    E           F
And the bread I spend - is like my fame - it's quickly diminished

Verse 4
D                      A
There's no more swim in the guitar shaped pool
D                        A
No more reporters at my back and call
D                         A
No more cocaine, now it's only ground chalk
D                        A
No more taxis now we'll have to walk

Chorus
    E         D      A
But didn't we have a nice time -

Didn't we have a nice time

Oh wasn't it such a fine time

Verse 5
A                                       D
I realize should have stuck to my guns
A
Instead shit turned out to be one of the bastard sons
     D           Bm   E                         F 
And lose myself  -    I know it was wrong -  it's cost me the lot

Verse 6
D                           A
There's no more drinking when the club shuts down
     D                       A
I'm now at my arse with the rest of the clowns
D                                 A
It's really frightening without a bodyguard
D                          A
So I stay confined to my lonely room

Chorus
      E       D        A
But didn't we have a nice time -
  E       D       A
Didn't we have a nice time
     E       D       G
Oh wasn't it such a fine time

A                                       D  A
To be someone must me a wonderful thing
