G G Em Em
A A police car and a screaming siren
G G Em Em
Pneumatic drill and ripped up concrete
G G Em Em
A A baby wailing, stray dog howling
G G Em Em
The screech of brakes and lamp light blinking

G G Em Em
The smash of glass and the rumble of boots
G G Em Em
An electric train and a ripped up phone booth
G G Em Em
Paint splattered walls and the cry of a tomcat
G G Em Em
Lights going out and a kick in the balls


Am Am F F
That's entertainment
Am Am F F G G / Em Em / G G / Em Em
That's entertainment

G G Em Em
Days of speed and slow time Mondays
G G Em Em
Pissing down with rain on a boring Wednesday
G G Em Em
Watching the news and not eating your tea
G G Em Em
A A freezing cold flat, and damp on the walls

Am Am F F
That's entertainment
Am Am F F G G / Em Em / G G / Em Em
That's entertainment

G G Em Em
Waking up from bad dreams and smoking cigarettes
G G Em Em
Cuddling a warm girl and smelling stale perfume
G G Em Em
A A hot summer's day and sticky black tarmac
G G Em Em
Feeding ducks in the park and wishing you were far away


Am Am F F
That's entertainment
Am Am F F G G / Em Em / G G / Em Em
That's entertainment


G G Em Em
Waking up at 6 a.m. on a cool warm morning
G G Em Em
Opening the windows and breathing in petrol
G G Em Em
An amateur band rehearsing in a nearby yard
G G Em Em
Watching the tele and thinking about your holidays

Am Am F F
That's entertainment
Am Am F F G G / Em Em / G G / Em Em
That's entertainment

G G Em Em
Two lovers kissing amongst the scream of midnight
G G Em Em
Two lovers missing the tranquility of solitude
G G Em Em
Getting a cab and travelling on buses
G G Em Em
Reading the graffiti about slashed seat affairs

Am Am F F
That's entertainment
Am Am F F G G / Em Em / G G / Em Em
That's entertainment
