Newtown Girls

Newtown Girls

Verse G D C d7

Chorus C7 C G G7 (repeat) C C# D D7

You’ll often see her on a Friday night
Down on Broughton st among the bright lights.
She and the girls have all got beautiful hair
Everybody knows she’s loaded, but she doesn’t care

She’s a New Town girl
She’s got my head in a whirl
But I cant break into her world
Because I just dont have anything in common with her.

At the age of eighteen
She bought the biggest property that you’ve ever seen
On the edge of George square,
so in the morning she’d have extra time for doing her hair

She’s a New Town girl
She’s got my head in a whirl
But I cant break into her world
Because I just don’t have anything in common with her.

I met her brother Tom, and his new girlfriend Tamara
they’re lots of fun,
they spent the last year living in Nairobi
We’re going straight back out there man
Or so they have told me

You’re a New Town girl
You’ve got my head in a whirl
But I cant break into her world
Because I just dont have anything in common with her

You’re at the Liquid Rooms on a Friday night
Drink some Tennents and you’re feelin alright
You go and talk to her but you wont get far
She only pulls in Garibaldi’s and Po Na Na Na

You’re a Newtown Girl
You’ve got my head in a whirl
But I cant break into your world
Cos I just dont have anything in common with you.

Lyrics

Always the Summer

Verse G,C,D

Woke up this morning , the sun is coming in through the blinds
I slept the morning, but it was a rough and tumble night,
Get up, make your breakfast, tea or coffee cereal or toast
Run out through the front door, I aint got time to pick up the post.

Chorus
G,C,D

Cause there’s always tomorrow
always tonight
always the next one, if the person you were with wasn’t right.

Well the industry’s all in London, so you go down, on the underground,
in the West End, and Soho,
And you go out with the pretty girls, and you drink champagne and you wake but youre feeling so low.

But there’s Always tomorrow, always tonight, always the next one if the person you were with wasn’t right,
And there’s always the next bus, if you didnt make the station on time,
yes there’s always the summer,
If the winter was too cold and unkind

Bridge
Bm C G C Bm C D D7

she would come around in the summer, she would come around in the night,
Her drummer used to play with Joe Strummer,
He’s always on time.

Middle eight G C D

Chorus
Cause there’s always tomorrow, always tonight, yes there’s always the next one, if the person you were with wasn’t right
And there’s always the next bus, if you didn’t make the station on time,
yes there’s always the summer, if the winter is too cold and unkind.
