Verse 1:
C#m                 B       B A G# F#
You take your white finger,
F#m
slide the nail under
    F#m     G#     A       B    C#m
the top and bottom buttons of
   B        B A G# F#
my blazer,
F#m
relax the fraying wool,
F#m     G#   A   B      A
slacken ties and I'm
A                  E
not to look at you in the shoe, 
*Bm
 but the eyes. 
         D *
find the eyes


Chorus:
   Bm
So find me and follow me 

through corridors, refectories 
    A
and files you must follow, leave this academic factory 
         Bm
you will find me in the matinee, 

the dark of the matinee is mine. 
    A
its better in the matinee,

the dark of the matinee is mine
        E
yes its mine


Riff


Verse 2: same as 1
I time every journey
to bump into you
acidently I
charm you and tell you
of the boys i hate
all the girls i hate
all the words i hate
all the clothes i hate
how I'll never be anything I hate
You smile, mention something that you like, 
how you'd have a happy life 
if you did the things you like. 


Chorus


Middle:
C#m            B     A B G# F#
So I'm on BBC2 now, 
F#m                 F#  G# B    A
telling Terry Wogan how I  made it. 
C#m              B      A B G# F#
What I made is unclear, 
F#m                  G#  A   B   
but his deference is and his laughter is.
A                              E
My words and smile are so easy now. 
    *Bm
Yes, It's easy now.
             D *
Yes its easy now
