It Makes The Room Look Bigger
Half Man Half Biscuit
(intro) C G (x3) Eb G G I've just finished decorating, it was very irritating C G C G And I know they're going to come around tonight and I know they're gonna say to me tonight: D7 G D7 G "It makes the room look bigger; it makes the room look bigger". G So let's forget about the open-top bus ride; standing tall on the town hall balcony C G C G It's about as likely as hen's teeth; it's about as likely as hen's teeth D7 G D7 G And as the light gets dimmer, I watch the chance get slimmer. C G But I'm putting up a hook to hang my hopes upon C G There's a fella coming round to stick the gas back on C G And if truth be told now that Thelma's gone D G (instr) G C (x3) D7 G It makes the room look bigger. G I'm drawn towards the souvenir stores; I twirl around the key fob rack C G C G Well it's alright for Nicholas and for Neil, yeah well how do you think that makes me feel? D7 G D7 G And all the while I can see I'm on the CCTV. (no chord) Elderly lady at the bus stop thinks I'm going to eat her and so to reassure her C G I ask her for the time C G C G And her sense of relief at my friendly tone reveals itself in her karmic moan: C G "You can wait twenty minutes and nothing comes along C Eb And then all of a sudden three thugs rob your pension D7 G Oh, there's generally one a twenty-five past D7 G There's generally one at twenty-five past D7 G They come swinging round that corner, Eb G C G C G They think they're Benny Goodman". C G But I'm putting up a hook to hang my hopes upon C G There's a fella coming round to stick the gas back on C G And if truth be told now that Thelma's gone D G It makes the room look bigger. D G C G G C G Oh tiptoe to the front row of the Korn show with a sub-machine gun.
