...CARDIAC ARREST... by Madness --------------------........... *from 'Seven' (1981)* Intro: Am G F F/E, Dm E Am Verse 1: Am Em F Papers in the morning, F Em Am Bowler hat on head. Am Em F Walking to the bus stop, F Em Am He's longing for his bed. Am Em F Waiting with his neighbours, F Em Am In the rush hour queue. Am Em F Got to get the first bus; F Em Am So much for him to do. Bridge 1: Em G He's got to hurry F#m A Got to get his seat Em G Can't miss his place F#m A Got to rest his feet. Verse 2: Am Em Ten more minutes, F 'Till he gets there; F Em Am The crossword's nearly done. Am Em F It's been so hard these days, F Em Am Not nearly so much fun. Am Em F His mind wanders to the office, F Em Am His telephone, desk and chair. Am Em F He's been happy with the company; F Em Am They've treated him real fair. Bridge 2: Em G Think of seven letters, F#m A Be-gin and end in 'C'. Em G Like a big A-merican car, F#m A But misspelt with a 'D'. Break: G Bb I wish this bus'd get a move on, Am7 Driver's taking his time. G Bb I just don't know, I'll be late, Am7 Oh dear what will the boss say? G Pull yourself together now, Don't get in a state. Chorus 1: Am Dm Don't you worry, G C There's no hurry. Am Dm It's a lovely day, G C Could all be going your way. Am Dm Take the doc's ad-vice, G C Let up enjoy your life. Am Dm Listen to what they say; G C B Gdim It's not a game they play. Interlude: Am G F F/E, Dm E Am Verse 3: Am Em F Never get there at this rate; F Em Am He's caught up in a jam. Am Em F There's a meeting this morning, F Em Am It's just his luck oh damn! Am Em F His hand dives in his pocket, F Em Am For his handker-chief. Am Em F Pearls of sweat on his collar, F Em Am His pulse-beat seems so brief. Bridge 3: Em G Eyes fall on his wristwatch, F#m A The seconds pass real slow. Em G Gasping for the hot air, F#m A But the chest pain it won't go. Break: G Bb Tried to ask for help, Am7 But can't seem to speak a word. G Bb Words are whispered frantically, Am7 But don't seem to be heard. G What about the wife and kids? They all depend on me! Chorus 2: Am Dm We're so sorry, G C We told you not to hurry. Am Dm Now it's just too late, G C You've got a certain date. Am Dm We thought we made it clear? G C We all voiced our inner fears. Am Dm We left it up to you; G C B Gdim There's nothing we can do.
