Capo 2 (chords relative to capo)

A               Em           G
Make a new cult every day to suit your affairs
A                Em             D
Kissing girls in English at the back of the stairs
F                                  A
You're a honey with a following of innocent boys
           D
They never know it
                  A
Because you never show it
                  E
You always get your way
A          D
They never know it
                  A
Because you never show it
                  E
You always get your way

Have you and her been taking pictures of your obsessions?
Because I met a boy who went through one of your sessions
In his blue velour and silk
You liberated
A boy I never rated
Now he's throwing discus
For Liverpool and Widnes
You liberated
A boy I never rated
And now he's doing business

E
Stars of track and field, you are
                              Em
Stars of track and field, you are
                             D
Stars of track and field are beautiful people


Could I write a piece about you now that you've made it?
About the hours spent, the wilderness in your training
You only did it so that you could wear
Your terry underwear
And feel the city air
Run past your body
Your terry underwear
And feel the city air
Run past your body

Could I write a requiem for you when you're dead?
"She had the moves, she had the speed, it went to her head"
She never needed anyone to get her round the track
But when she's on her back
She had the knowledge
To get her into college
But when she's on her back
She had the knowledge
To get what she wanted


Stars of track and field, you are
Stars of track and field, you are
Stars of track and field are beautiful people.
Stars of track and field, you are
Stars of track and field, you are
Stars of track and field are beautiful people.

Trumpet solo: same as verses

E
Stars of track and field, you are

Stars of track and field, you are
                             D
Stars of track and field are beautiful people.
E
Stars of track and field, you are

Stars of track and field, you are
                             D
Stars of track and field are beautiful people.
E                             Em
Stars of track and field, you are
                              G
Stars of track and field, you are
                             D
Stars of track and field are beautiful people.
