David Bowie - Rubber Band

Intro is played on a tuba.

Rubber Band
There's a rubber band that plays tunes out of tune
In the library garden Sunday afternoon
                                      G      F   D
While a little chappie waves a golden wand

Rubber Band
In 1910 I was so handsome and so strong
My moustache was stiffly waxed and one foot long
                                            G      F  D
And I loved a girl while you played teatime tunes

Am          D            Am         D           G
Dear Rubber Band, you're playing my tune out of tune
Am    C    G

Rubber Band
Won't you play a haunting theme again to me
While I eat my scones and drink my cup of tea
                                       G      F  D
The sun is warm but it's a lonely afternoon
