Capo 4

C Dm G CYou were born with football boots and a suntan complexion
F Dm GYou once thought that on reflection, I've really got it made
C Dm G CYou shrugged and smiled and made the usual excuses
F Dm G CYou suffered small abuses, and settled for their pay
F Dm G CYou want to learn to live like an aristocrat
F Dm GBut your girlfriend's earrings well they soon put pay to that
F Dm G Cand if the whole world came crashing, down around your ears
F Dm GYou could dream of stucco wallpaper and crystal chandeliers
C Dm G CYou cashed in your cards, you want to buy some glamour
F Dm GYou really are enamoured, with that new soap on a rope
C Dm G CA thousand fat comedians came in disguised as clerics
F Dm GThey got you in hysterics, and walked off with your soul
F Dm G Cand with that cheapskate, royalty, you get your flag and wave
F Dm GWell I've seen you on TV grinning at the motorcade
F Dm G
CPretty soon we'll hang the traitors, we'll string them up like drapes
F Dm GAnd I'll ride around like Steve McQueen in The Great Escape
C Dm G CYou hung around too long, your mother read your letters
F Dm GYou grinned like a go-getter, come and got and gone
C Dm G CThe time the morning slips, blends into the wallpaper
F Dm Gand once you could escape her, but where did you go wrong
F Dm G Cand your father's at the factory that makes money selling guns
F Dm GThat fought the wars that spent the lives of other peoples sons
F Dm G
CPretty soon we'll hang the traitors, we'll string them up like drapes
F Dm GAnd I'll ride around like Steve McQueen in The Great Escape
C Dm G CYou were born with football boots and a suntan complexion
F Dm G CYou once thought that on reflection, you'd really got it made
F Dm G CYou once thought that on reflection, you'd really got it made
F Dm G
CYou once thought that on reflection, oh yeah, I've really got it made
