Tab from oddos aka zappy the Koala 
An amazing song with incredible harmonies. Pure genius. Enjoy! 


VERSE:
A# FPress the doorbell and push the door
G# A# Climb the darkened stairwell to the second floor
Gm CShe'll be waiting for you in her dressing-gown
Gm CWith the drink she poured you when she heard the sound
A# FWatch the film, eat the food she cooked
G# A#Talk of how the film ain't half as good as the book
Gm CKiss her sleepy eyes closed and say "it's time"
Cm FTo slip beneath the shadows of the bedroom blinds
A# Cm Well it's always a pleasure and never a chore
A# Gm CmBut you just don't know whether you're doing it for the right reasons
G Cm GmIt's cold for the season down in the street below
Before Chorus

CHORUS
Gm Men and women go about their business
Gm Picking up the last few things for Christmas
CmTrying not to step upon the pigeons
CmPraying to the gods of their religions
CmThat they might be spared a little longer
CmThat they might become a little stronger
Dm7 Cm7 FDown in the street below
GmEverybody's on a secret mission
GmEverybody's got their own ambitions
GmThey would tell you if they thought you'd listen
CmThey would say how lately they've been wishing
CmFor the chance to meet a handsome stranger
CmLead a life of elegance and danger
Dm7 Cm7 FDown in the street below
Dm7 Cm7 FDown in the street below
VERSE
A# FWay up high in a phallic tower
G# A# You're swimming in a tiny galaxy of stars
Gm CKnocking back mojitos at the cocktail bar
Gm CTalking 'bout burritos and conceptual art
A# FYour armchair's round and your glass is square
G# A#The clientele's straight out of this month's Vanity Fair
Gm CWell look around the place, something's not quite right
Cm FYours is the only face that you don't recognize
Well it's always a pleasure and never a chore But you just don't know whether you're doing it for the right reasons It's cold for the season down in the street below
