You should die

Sitting on the prettiest eyes
D

Sixty twenty-fifth of Decembers

Take a good look at these crows feet
A
G
D
Sitting on the prettiest eyes
Verse 2
Line Three, I forget But I think, I think it was our first ever bet And the horse we backed was short of a leg Never mind Four, in a park And the things, the things that people do in the dark I could hear the faintest beat of your heart Then we did
Repeat bridge
Chorus 2
Just take a look at these crows feet, just look Sitting on the prettiest eyes 60 25th of Decembers 59 4th of Julys You can't have too many good times children You can't have too many lines Take a good look at these crows feet sitting on the prettiest eyes

One Last Love Song

Capo I
G
Em
I once had a friend who I loved from my heart
C
D
But I went on and left her 'fore I'd made a start
G
Em
Now Im moaning the blues like the rest of the charts
C
D
Take me back
G
So I'll cry with a limp
Em
Just get by on a limb
C
G
Till these blue eyes of mine they are closed
C
G
So heres to an old fashioned peck on the cheek
D
G
And farewell my sweet northern rose
G
Em
Give me one last love song
C
D
To bring you back, bring you back
G
Em
Give me one last video
C
D
Just dressed in black, dressed in black
C
G
Give him a chorus and that bit at the end
C
G
Where he wails on and on bout the loss of a friend
C
D
Let him scream loudly well this love could mend
D
G
Let it die, let it die
Those bloody great ballads we hated at first Well I bought them all, now I'm writing worse Save us from baldness and saving the earth Take me back And I'll smile with a limp And I'll love with a limp Till the clouds disappear from above And as the storm moves away all I can say Is theres a towel on the door for your love Give me one last love song To bring you back, bring you back Give me one last video, just dressed in black, dressed in black Give him a chorus and that bit at the end Where he wails on and on bout the loss of a friend Let him scream loudly well this love could mend Let it die, let it die, let it die

But she wears a twelve
A
E
Baby, keep a little two for me
She could be sweet sixteen Bustin' out of the seams But it's still love in the first degree When he's at my gate With a big fat eight You wanna see the smile on my face Even at my door With his poor, poor four There ain't no man can replace
E

We love our love
Bm
In different sizes

I love her body

Especially the lines

Time takes it's toll

But not on the eyes
E
Promise me this
A
Take me tonight
