Janitors padlock the gates for security guards to patrol
                              FF chord
And bachelors phone up their friends for a drink

While the married ones turn on a chat show
            FF chord              BbBb chord                  FF chord
And they'll all be lonely tonight and lonely tomorrow

And every third car is a cab,
		FF chord
And ignorant people sleep in there beds
	CC chord		   BbBb chord
Like the doped white mice in the college lab

Telephone exchanges click while there's nobody there
     FF chord					                 Dm7Dm7 chord
The Martians could land in the car park and no one could care
    BbBb chord		             FF chord
The close-circuit cameras in department stores
          CC chord	           BbBb chord		
Shoot the same movie everyday
                                     FF chord

While 'Angry from Manchester' writes to complain about all the repeats on TV

Some gains on the values of copper and tin,
			    FF chord
While American businessmen snap up Van Goghs

For the price of a hospital wing

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
