The Kooks - Ooh La
[ chords by: WheezyE (SaskStrum on Youtube figured them out though)]

I've had this on my computer for quite a while.  I remember laboriously going over this 
tab for a while, but I can't remember how much is original.  I think all the chords are 
original, but if I ripped you off I'm sorry.
Fun fact, I heard the band pronounce their name as "The Cooks."  Not like "kooky", but 
like "cook."

[Intro]
Bm11          Bm711-Bm11-Bm711-Bm11

[Verse 1-2]: (Bm11  G5  Em  x3   ->   A)
Bm11          Bm711-Bm11-Bm711-Bm11
       But    In         their
(Bm11) eyes is the place that you find. You discovered
(G5)   That you love it here, you've got to stay
(Em)   On this wrongness of rock,      an island     On which you find you
(Bm11) love it when you twitch         You feel that itch in your
(G5)      pettycoat
Your pretty pretty (Em)  pettycoat

Then you (Bm11) smiled, he got wild         You didn't understand that there's
(G5)   money to be made       Beauty is a card that
(Em)   must get played        By organi-
(A)sations


[Chorus]
   Bm11  G5                  A         Em      Z
And ooh la, she was such a good girl to me
  G5    Bm11                 A                Em      Z
And ooh la, the world just chewed her up, and spat her out
  G5    Bm11                 A         Em      Z
And ooh la, she was such a good girl to me
  G5    Bm11                 A         Em
And ooh la, the world just chewed her up, and spat her out

[Verse 3-4]: (Bm11  G5  Em  x3    ->    A)
The (Bm11) world can be a very big place so
(G5)   Be yourself don't get out of place
(Em)   Love your man      and love him twice
(Bm11) Go to Hollywood and pay the price---
(G5)
Oh go to Hollywood---  (Em)

And don't (Bm11) be a star,     it's such a drag
(G5)   Take care of yourself, don't begin to lag
(Em)   It's a hard life to live, so live it well
(Bm11) I will be your friend     not to pretend
(G5)
You know I need you (Em)girl--    in all situ-
(A)ations
