                [Intro]

  E            Bm           F#m          A
| /  /  /  / | /  /  /  / | /  /  /  / | /  /  /  / | x2


[Verse 1]

      E                           Bm
I was looking for a rhyme for the New York Times
       F#m                A
When I sensed I was not alone.
                E                    Bm
She said "D'you know how to spell audaciously?"
        F#m            A
I could tell I was in luck.


[Verse 2]

         E                       Bm
And so I forced a smile contrary to my style
        F#m            A
And she looked into my eyes
                E          Bm
She said "D'you want to go heaven
             F#m           A
Or would you rather not be saved?"


[Bridge 1]

              Bm        G
Here comes my train
          D                 F#m
I'm on my way, will you not see
        G              F#m
I don't need your sympathy
        G             A                E
I won't read your poetry, oh sweetness please!

  E            Bm           F#m          A
| /  /  /  / | /  /  /  / | /  /  /  / | /  /  /  / | x2


[Verse 3]

       E                   Bm
So she took me back to her basement flat,
          F#m               A
Which was down on Charlotte Street.
              E          Bm
Though it was never my intention
           F#m              A
No we were not intense, not least because,


[Verse 4]

             E                         Bm
"Well if you must just take then I'm a piece of cake."
        F#m              A
That is what she said to me
         E                  Bm
And so I gave myself to her charity
        F#m                 A
Well at least that's how it seemed,


[Bridge 2]

              Bm        G
Here comes my train
          D                  F#m
I'm on my way, what got into me?
        G              F#m
I don't need your sympathy
        G             A             E
I won't read your poetry, oh bittersweets!


[Instrumental]

  E            Bm           F#m          A

[Verse 5]

      E                           Bm                           F#m        A
I was looking for a rhyme for the New York Times when I was distracted
               E                 Bm             F#m        A
Yes those were precious times together that we wasted


[Verse 6]

        E                   Bm
Now I'm working hard for my union card
          F#m                 A
I must be leaving Charlotte Street
              E          Bm                 F#m        A
Though it was never my intention to stay so long
   E
So long


[Outro]

  E            Bm           F#m          A
