            BbBb chord
I’ve got no money in my hands or my coat or my pocket
DmDm chord                       CC chord
Wont get to space cos I haven’t got a rocket
         BbBb chord
But I’ve air in my lungs
Eyes in my sockets
      FF chord
And a heart that beats
       CC chord
Like a tap that leaks
        BbBb chord
In the night when you haven’t got a plumber who can stop it
 DmDm chord               CC chord
Jack in a box without a key to lock it
          AmAm chord                    BbBb chord
Well this boat may sink but I’m not gonna rock it
         CC chord                   DmDm chord
Cos the sea doesn’t know my name

Well I’ve got no ones word and no bodies promise
 DmDm chord                          CC chord
Not a lot to show but this book full of sonnets
         BbBb chord
And my liver may be xxxxed but my heart is honest
       FF chord
And my word is true
          CC chord
Like the sky is blue
        BbBb chord
In the summer time when everybody gets on it
DmDm chord                      CC chord
Warm our skins and get sunburnt from it
        AmAm chord                      BbBb chord                       
And our eyes shine bright like a sky full of comets
      CC chord                DmDm chord
that shoot like silver trains
          AmAm chord                      BbBb chord
Yeah our eyes shine bright like a sky full of comets
      CC chord                FF chord
