Intro: F# Bm (repeat)

F#                     Bm
Monday morning wake up knowing that
                    F#
You've got to go to school
                      Bm
Tell your mum what to expect
                            F#
She says it's right out the blue
                       Bm
Do you want to work in Debenham's
                        F#
'Cause that's what they expect
                       Bm                    D  D  A  G
Start in Lingerie, and Doris is your supervisor

F#                         Bm
And the head said that you always were a
                   F#
queer one from the start
                        Bm
For careers you say you want to be
                   F#
remebered for your art
                        Bm
Your obsessions get you known throughout
                     F#
the school for being strange
                       Bm
Making lifesize models of the
                      D  D  A  G 
Velvet Underground in clay

F#                          Bm
In the queue for lunch they take the piss
              F#
You've got no appetite
                      Bm
And the rumour is you never go with boys
            F#
and you are tight
                       Bm
So they jab you with a fork
                         F#
You drop the tray and go beserk
                             Bm
While you're cleaning up the mess
                                D  
the teacher's looking up your skirt
A               G     G
Hey you've been used
D          A            G   G
   Are you calm? Settle down
D          A               G     G
   Write a song, I'll sing along
                        F#
Soon you will know that you are sane
          G     
You're on top of the world again


F#                     Bm
Monday morning wake up knowing that
                    F#  
you've got to go to school
                      Bm
Tell your mum what to expect
                            F#
She says it's right out the blue
                       Bm
Do you want to work in C&A,
                       F#
cause that's what they expect
                       Bm
Move to Ladieswear and take a feel
                D  D  A  G
off Joe the Storeman

F#                              Bm
Tell Veronica the secret of the boy
          F#
you never kissed
                        Bm
She's got everything to gain cause
                        F#
she's a fat girl with a lisp
                           Bm
She sticks up for you when you get
                     F#
aggravation from the snobs
                          Bm
Cause you can't afford a blazer and
                      D  D  A  G
you're always wearing clogs

F#                  Bm
At the interval you lock yourself away
         F#
inside a room
                          Bm
Head of English gets you, asks you
                                   F#
"What the Hell do you think you're doing?"
                            Bm
"Do you think you're better than the other kids?
         F#
Well get outside."

You've got permission
           Bm                                 D   
But you've got to make the bastard think he's right
A               G
Hey you've been used
D          A               G
   Write a song, I'll sing along
D          A            G
   Are you calm? Settle down
                           F#
   Soon you will know that you are sane
             G
   You're on top of the world again
