Chords
Transpose:
Intro:
G#, C#
Fm, C#

G# C# Such was the expression of the child
FmAs he bounced across my windscreen
C#And off the other side.
G# That I got the strong impression
C# FmFor a second that he wasn't so much angry
C#As incredibly surprised.
C# D#As I watched him in my rear view mirror slowly slip away,
C# D#I turned to my instructor and I felt I had to say,
G# C C#Do you think we should reschedule the test?
G# C C#'Cause I'm starting now to think it might be best.
Fm Either way, I'm pretty sure
C#You could have taught me clutch control
D# G#In a playground that was emptier than this.
G#, C# Fm, C#
G# C#Such was the blind panic of the boy scouts
FmAs I backed into the duck pond
C#In the middle of the green.
G#That it became a little clearer
C# FmWhy the mirror said that objects featured in it
C#Might be closer than they seem.
C# D#As I watched the displaced goldfish flapping vainly on the grass
C# D#I smiled at the policeman and I felt I had to ask,
G# C C#Would a fifty maybe make this go away?
G# C C#'Cause I really don't have time for this today.
FmBesides which how am I supposed to learn to drive
C#When everywhere I turn there's
D# G#Five or six small children getting in the way.
Fm
C# I would later learn that was the moment
A# FmThe SWAT team was mobilised
C# And that the car chase that followed
A# FmWas globally televised.
In fact I'm told that they
C# A# FmStill use the footage for police training video
C# And though I've not seen it personally
A# G#I've learned that it basically shows
(From here to the end just repeat the intro pattern G#, C#, Fm, C#)
C# FmMe and my instructor tearing down the autobahn
C# G#Doing ninety in a Mazda with the handbrake on
C# FmPloughing recklessly through traffic, cones and trees.
C# G#I am Thelma to his terrified Louise
C# FmAnd all the while I got him screaming in my head
C# G# That I should probably change up out of second gear,
C# FmCheck my mirrors, keep my hands at two and ten
C# G#And maybe give some thought to turning myself in.
But in spite of everything,
C# FmWe made it to the border
C#Though the last two miles was in reverse
G#Up the hard shoulder.
That old car was dead,
C# FmBut somehow we'd survived.
We climbed out of the wreck
C# G#And solemnly high-fived.
So that's how me and my instructor Moved to Switzerland. Opened up a little cafe In the hinterland. And though I never got my licence, in the end, I found something so much better A brand new, bestest friend.
