excerpt from a teenage opera

keith west

Поп Блюзовая Для начинающих
Неопределен C Неопределено
6    6  6 5  -6 6  6 5
count the days into years
 4   6  6   6    6    -6 6  6 5
yes,eighty two brings many fears
-4 -4 -4     5 -5    -6   -5  -4
yesterdays laughter turns to tears
 5  -5   -5  -5   -5    -5   -5  6 -5
his arms and legs don`t feel so strong
-5    5    5   5    4      5   5    -5 5
his heart is weak there`s something wrong
 6 -4 -4  -4  -4  -4 -4
opens windows in despair
  6   -4   -4    -4 -4    -4   -4
tries to breathe in some fresh air
 5   -5 -5      -5    -5  -5 -5    6
his conscience cries,"get on your feet
 4  5    5    5   5    5   5    -5 5
without you jack the town can`t eat"

chorus:
 6  7   7   -4 6    6    6   6   -5  -5
grocer jack,grocer jack,get off your back
 5  6 6  6   -5    -5    5    5 -4 5-4 4 3
go into town don`t let them down,oh no no
 6  7    7  -4  6    6   6   6  -5   -5
grocer jack,grocer jack,get off your back
 5  6 6  6   -5    -5    5   5  -4 5-4 4 3
go into town don`t let them down,oh no no

verse:

the people that live in the town
don`t understand,he`s never been known
to miss his round
it`s ten o`clock,the housewives yell
"when jack turns up,we`ll give him hell"
husbands moan at breakfast tables,
no milk,no eggs,no marmalade labels
mother`s send their children out
to jacks house to scream and shout.

repeat chorus.

it`s sunday morning,bright and clear,
lovely flowers,decorate a marble square
people cry and mourn away 
think about the fateful day
now they wish they`d given jack
more affection and respect
the little children dressed in black
don`t know what`s happened to old jack.

grocer jack,grocer jack,is it true what mummy said
you won`t come back,oh no no.
   (repeat and fade)
