The People Who Grinned Themselves to Death
Am Bb
The smiled so much and waved their flags
Am C (barre chord on 3rd fret) As she saluted
to the military band
Am Bb
Most of the people failed to see
Am C
She had a broken bottle in the other hand
And she took them by surprise
Dm (barre chord 5th fret)
When she took them by the throat
Bb C (barre chord on 3rd fret)
And she said "My friend you're not allowed to vote"
F (barre chord on 8th fret)
But they shook it all off,
With a nervous laugh and cough,
Bb C
"Next time," she said "I'll let those people choke"
The people who grinned themselves to death
Eb (barre chord on 6th fret)
Smiled so much they failed to take a breath
And even when their kids were starving
They all thought the queen was charming

She polished all upon the wall
And ran her hands right through her hair So if the lady took
the time to call
All the houses on the street would not compare
And she thought it really funny
That she hadn't any money
But those she looked up to, they had,
But they shook it all off
With a nervous laugh and cough
And when they took her riches it was sad
