Kill to Get Crimson Version

Intro: E


E
The school Christmas party is coming
			B
We ain't doing rugby no more
E
McIntyre’s teaching us waltzing
					B
Out on the gymnasium floor
E					B
Out on the gymnasium floor
E
McIntyre's out of the army
					B 
You’ll be slipper’d if you get it wrong
E
McIntyre's din looms loud in the gym
                 E             D                B
And we've only got a little short song
          A             G                       E
We've only got a little short song


  
         C             G
And it's one two three two two we're all a disgrace
                         C
McIntyre tore us apart
                                                    G                  C
And we dance with ourselves when we’d all found a space
Bm                               C
Waltzing with fear in our hearts
Am                               D
Waltzing with fear in our hearts



E (same as intro)



Comes the day of the final manoeuvres

All of our heads are a whirl

It’s getting much closer to D-Day

This time we're gonna do it with girls

This time we're gonna do it with girls




In the arena the ladies were waiting

A twelve year old partner to guide

Some matches were fixed

The rest of us mixed

And a fat girl got left at the side

The fat girl got left at the side

         C             G
And it's one two three two two we're all a disgrace
                         C
McIntyre tore us apart
                                                    G                  C
And we dance with ourselves when we’d all found a space
Bm                               C
Waltzing with fear in our hearts
Am                               D
Waltzing with fear in our hearts




      C                                           G                      
When you come to my fights and I’m under the lights
                  G/B          C

And you see that my footwork is false
                                 G              C
Don't count me out at the start of the bout
            Bm                 C
I'm just doing secondary waltz
Am                  D
Doing the secondary waltz
