VERSE 1

The gymnast, high above the ground,
Limbers up and falls tender down
Ankles splayed and all tied
The gymnast long has arrived

VERSE 2

Lazy, your long sister lays
Waiting out this long light brigade
Prayed for snow a long time
And lately, it long has arrived

CHORUS

C                                                                G
Through the tarlatan holes, you've been slipping, been slipping away (la dee dum da)
And the weather will hold, its been ever so, ever so gray (la dee dum da)
    Em            G                  C                    Cm                 Em
And here as we're coming down, we're sounding out, it's a terrible, terrible tide
      G                C
As it lights upon your eye
But there on the motorway, reeks of marmalade, it's a chemical, chemical kind
      G                C    Am               C
As it lights upon your eye, lights upon your eye

VERSE 3

The bosun calls upon the quay
Compass gone, he long has lost his way
To lighthouse shine, to calm tide
The bosun long has arrived

CHORUS

C                                                                G
Through the tarlatan holes, you've been slipping, been slipping away (la dee dum da)
And the weather will hold, its been ever so, ever so gray (la dee dum da)
    Em            G                  C                    Cm                 Em
And here as we're coming down, we're sounding out, it's a terrible, terrible tide
      G                C
As it lights upon your eye
But there on the motorway, reeks of marmalade, it's a chemical, chemical kind
      G                C    Am               C
As it lights upon your eye, lights upon your eye
