F# Bm F#
Monday morning wake up knowing that you've got to go to school

Bm F#
Tell your mum what to expect, she says it's right out of the blue

Bm F#
Do you went to work in Debenham's, because that's what they expect

Bm G D A G
Start in Lingerie, and Doris is your supervisor

F# Bm F#
And the head said that you always were a queer one from the start

Bm F#
For careers you say you went to be remembered for your art

Bm F#
Your obsessions get you known throughout the school for being strange

Bm G D
Making life-size models of the Velvet Underground in clay

F# Bm F#
In the queue for lunch they take the piss, you've got no appetite

Bm F#
And the rumour is you never go with boys and you are tight

Bm F#
So they jab you with a fork, you drop the tray and go berserk

Bm G D
While your cleaning up the mess the teacher's looking up your skirt

You've been used,

Are you calm? Settle down

Write a song, I'll sing along

Soon you will know that you are sane

You're on top of the world again

My apologies for the poor chord placement in this song. I cannot
fix them as I no longer have the record, but it ought to be fairly
obvious to anyone who knows the tune well. Theo.
