(opening riff: pluck Am 5 4 3 4 2 4 3 4 twice)
Am G E7 Am
Now that you've found your paradise
Am C G E7
This is your kingdom to command

You can go outside and polish your car
Am C E7 Am (opening riff)
Or sit by the fire in your Shangri-La
Am G E7 Am
Here is your reward for working so hard

Gone are the days when you dreamed of that car

You just want to sit in your Shangri-La
D Dmaj7
Put on your slippers and sit by the fire

You're in your place and you know where you are

Got a mortgage hanging over his head

And all the houses in the street have got a name
Dm Dm/C Dm/B Dm/Bb
Cos all the houses in the street they look the same
A D Dm
Same chimney pots, same little cars, same window panes
Dm Dm/C Dm/B Dm/Bb
The neighbors call to tell you things that you should know
Dm Dm/C Dm/B Dm/Bb
They say their lines they drink their tea and then they go
A D Dm
They tell your business in another Shangri-La
Dm Dm/C Dm/B Dm/Bb
The gas bills and the water rates and payments on the car
Dm Dm/C Dm/B Dm/Bb
Too scared to think about how insecure you are

Life ain't so happy in your little Shangri-La
