Intro: Bm  Em  Bm  Em

Verse:

Bm
Don't just stand there watching it happening

Em
I can't stand it

Don't feel it

Bm
Something's telling me
               Em
Don't wanna go out this way

But have a nice day


Pre Chorus:

Bm                          Em
Then read it in the headlines
Bm               Em
Watch it on the TV
Bm                     Em
Put it in the background
Bm
Stick it in the back
                   Em
Stick it in the back

Chorus:

A
For the beautiful occupation
G
The beautiful occupation
A
You don't need an invitation
G
To drop in upon a nation

I'm too cynical
I'm just sitting here
I'm just wasting my time
Half a million civillians gonna die today
But look the wrong way

Then read it in the headlines
Watch it on the TV
Put it in the background
Stick it in the back
Stick it in the back

For the beautiful occupation
The beautiful occupation
You don't need an invitation
To drop in upon a nation

Don't just stand there watching it happening
I can't stand it
Don't feel it
Something telling me
Don't wanna go out this way
But have a nice day

Then read it in the headlines
Watch it on the TV
Put it in the background
Stick in the back
Stick in the back

For the beautiful occupation
The beautiful occupation
Don't need an invitation
To drop in upon a nation

The beautiful occupation
The beautiful occupation
So much for an intervention
Don't call the united nations

Same chords in verse 2 but in verse 3 Andy just plays the riff which is easily worked 
It's based on the Bm chord.

During the solo the chords are: Bm  Bb  A  Em  x2

Outro: Bm  F#m  Gsus2
