E                        A                     E
I'm an old pervert and I hang around under the bridge
I'm an old pervert and I hang around under the bridge
A                                                     E
I won't do you no harm I just wanna show what's in my fridge
A                 C             D                         E
So come on little girl, is your name Hester or maybe it's Midge

Well, they say that I'm weird and disenfectant is the only thing I drink
They say that I'm weird and disenfectant is the only thing I drink
Ah, but cleanliness of the soul is more important, don't you think?
And I could show you one or two things right there in my sink
So come on baby

I'm an old pervert and I just don't get around much anymore
I'm an old pervert and I don't get around much anymore
Sometimes I feel it evaporating through the door
But come on pretty baby and I show you how I let you score
Ha ha ha ha
Yeah, baby

Only The Stones Remain

E                  A
Men were executed, women bled
F#(2)                           A        B(2)      E
Meat and fish changed hands and children stayed up late
Uh, huh

E                   A
Coloured drums they display the night
F#(2)                A             B(2)
There's a taxidemist looking for a fight
	     E     A
But now he's gone, oh yeah
A        B      E
Only the stones remain


Girls were decked with flowers and violated while
Boys spat juice from a, out of their fresh young bulbs
Soldiers crossed their hearts and died while pretty girls turned cold inside
But now they're gone, oh yeah
Only the stones remain
Oh they're gone, yeah
Only the stones remain

A                   F#        E
And the stones have forgotten them
The stones have forgotten them

They break your body and drain the life out of it
It sinks into the soil while the soul flies up into the air above
and when there's no more tears to cry
There's nothing left to do but laugh
State led collabarations collapse and candyfloss evaporates, honey
Only the stones remain
(Here they going)
Oh yeah, only the stones remain

Woah

Now they're gone, oh yeah
Only the stones remain
Oh yeah, only the stones remain

D           DM7    D7      DM7     B
Or you grow out of me just like a plant

B                         E          A
Ain't no way I'm gonna be anything I ought to be,
E             D     A       E
All I want to do is be your creature
B                         E          A
Ain't no way I'm gonna be anything I ought to be,

A       AM7    A7       A        D DM7 D7 DM7

Just to have a butchers at your face
D          DM7   D7      DM7   D DM7 D7 DM7
You're the one I love or so it seems,
D            DM7   D7    DM7    E            (1)
Cause you've confiscated all my dreams
E A D9   E A D9
Yeah                    (1, 2)

(1) play first note, then repeat second pattern
|---|---------0-----|
|---|-------02-0----|
|---|-----02----1---|

BTW, is "a butchers" the only use of Cockney rhyming slang in Robyn's work? (Butcher's hook = look)

As you know if you've heard the song, the E A D9 combination stays on E for a long while then stabs through A to D9, then there's a gap b efore going back to the E. I find that going back to A in this gap keeps the right feel to the song (although the Soft Boyd filled it up with some neat basswork instead)

If anyone REALLY wants me to, I could try to work out that lovely funky bass line, too :)

Kingdom of Love (bass)

OK< I'll bite. I threatened to do this ages ago, so here is that funky, cool and if not totally tubular then certainly sort of long and round, bass part for Kingdom of Love. Please correct me if it goes pear-shaped, as they say on all the best British cop shows...

Subject: Queen of Eyes Chords

     Warning: I have only heard a solo acoustic version of this song (from 
     Michael's fegvideo I) so I don't know if there are any significant 
     differences from the Underwater Moonlight version, besides the extra 
     verse. Anyway, here goes.
     

    
     Intro. 
     
     Esus4    E    Esu4    E  etc.   (first position chords, very 
     Byrds-ish)
     
     E                            B
     Blinking on and off it's the Queen of Eyes
     B               A             E          B
     With a carapace shell and her black lace thighs
     A       E        A              B             E
     I don't know why she never gets anywhere with you

     He's looking for someone to investigate him
     A       E        A             B             E

     Locked in orbit round the Queen of Eyes

     youuuuuuuuuuu
     
     Well there it is. Sorry I took so long to post this, been busy and 
     slightly hesitant since i am not listening to the original version.

intro: (on 5th string...B-C-B-C-B-C-B-C...)

      G
In yellow shoes I get the blues
so I walk the streets in my plastic feet
	      Ab
And my blue velvet trousers make me feel pink
There's a kind of stink about blue velvet trousers
		 A
In my paisley shirt, I look a jerk
and my turquoise waistcoat is quite outta sight
	 Bb
But oh, whoa, my haircut looks so bad . . .
B
Vegetable Man . . . where are you ?

      G
So I change my gear, and I buy my jeans
and I cover them up with the latest cut
       Ab
My pants and socks are bought in a box
It don't take long to buy nylon socks
       A
The watch, my watch, with a black face
and the date in a little hole and
Bb
All the lot, it's what I got, it's what I wear,
								  B
it's what you see, it must be me, it's what I am . . .
Vegetable Man . . .

B                 F#                 B

Eb                                  Db
I've been looking all over the place
	   A                       Ab
for a place for me
		       E                Ab
But it ain't anywhere
     A             B       E
It just ain't anywhere
