Subject: LIKE COCKATOOS by The Cure

Like Cockatoos
	(words & music by Robert Smith, Simon Gallup, Laurence Tolhurst, Porl
Thompson, and Boris Williams)

Like many Cure songs, the there is really only one real riff for this song
with other cool stuff added in (like the string orchestrations at the end).
Anyway, the main (and intro) riff are these:

The ever so cool lyrics are: She walked out of her house And looked around At all the gardens that looked back at her house (Like all the faces that quiz when you smile) And he was standing at the corner Where the road turned dark A part of shiny wet Like blood the rain fell black down on the street And kissed his feet she fell Her head an inch away from heaven And her face pressed tight And all around the night sang out like cockatoos And in her head A picture of a boy who left her loney in the rain (And all around the night sang out like cockatoos)
