Deceives The Eye by Madness

Intro:
Chord diagramE MajorE Chord diagramBB


Verse 1:
Chord diagramE MajorE              Chord diagramBB
In the earliest days of my shop-lifting career
Chord diagramE MajorE              Chord diagramG#G#
You could safely say I was filled with fear
    Chord diagramA augmentedA             Chord diagramBB
It was nail-biting work from the very start
   Chord diagramE MajorE              Chord diagramBB
But several quick successes soon gave me heart
Verse 2:
Chord diagramE MajorE           Chord diagramBB
After a while I could pick and nick with ease
Chord diagramE MajorE                  Chord diagramBB
Some shirts, some trousers and a few LP's
Chord diagramA augmentedA                  Chord diagramBB
No one ever stopped me, they didn't seem to care
  Chord diagramE MajorE                 Chord diagramBB
It sometimes seemed to me, there was no one there

Then a fine summers day my mate Ted and me
Chord diagramC# minorC#m               Chord diagramF#F#
Set off down the West End on our usual spree
Chord diagramC# minorC#m             Chord diagramA augmentedA
Things were as normal for an hour or so
Chord diagramBB
Then my nimble hands were a bit too slow


Verse 3:
Chord diagramE MajorE              Chord diagramBB
Two store-detectives made a fast approach
Chord diagramC# minorC#m                      Chord diagramBB
One grabbed my jacket, (you're nicked, haha!) the other grabbed my throat
Chord diagramA augmentedA                Chord diagramBB
"So we caught you at last", one said with joy
Chord diagramE MajorE               Chord diagramBB
"Been after you some time, my light-fingered boy"

Chord diagramC# minorC#m            Chord diagramF#F#
If only I'd remembered my common sense
Chord diagramC# minorC#m                Chord diagramF#F#
They captured me red-handed with evidence
Chord diagramC# minorC#m            Chord diagramA augmentedA
If I go to the manager and say I'm sorry
Chord diagramBB
Maybe he'll forgive me for my youthful folly


(Link 2)
    Chord diagramE minorEm        Chord diagramD MajorD
"But - but what will the social worker say
Chord diagramE minorEm   Chord diagramD MajorD
If - if I don't come home today?
Chord diagramE minorEm       Chord diagramD MajorD
He'll gimme a clout
Chord diagramE minorEm            Chord diagramD MajorD
What if they don't let me out?
Chord diagramE minorEm            Chord diagramD MajorD
I - I told 'em I'm on me own
Chord diagramE minorEm          Chord diagramD MajorD
Don't they understand I'm from a broken home?"

Verse 4:

Chord diagramE MajorE                  Chord diagramBB
I'll tell him I'm the product of a broken home
Chord diagramC# minorC#m             Chord diagramB minorBm
And I always went out on my own
Chord diagramA augmentedA         Chord diagramBB
Was it too late to say I'd pay
Chord diagramE MajorE                  Chord diagramBB
And I'll never steal again till the end of my days?

Chord diagramE MajorE              Chord diagramBB
Because I had no friends to call as such
Chord diagramC# minorC#m           Chord diagramG# minorG#m
Money and possessions I did not 'ave much
Chord diagramA augmentedA            Chord diagramBB
So I started to steal in order to get by
Chord diagramE MajorE             Chord diagramBB
The quickness of the hand deceives the eye
Chord diagramE MajorE      Chord diagramBB
Deceives the eye, the eye, the eye, the eye, the eye, the eye
