Track Name: Don't Touch My Belly (Or I'll Kill You)
Don't touch my belly or I'll kill you! (I'll kill you!) D G
Don't touch my belly or you'll die (Start praying) D A
It's not that I don't like you, D
Although right now? I DON'T LIKE YOU G
Anyway, so... killing. I'm just saying. D A D

My baby's well protected by my organs of digestion D G
And the part that you're now squeezing is in fact my small intestine D A
And it's flattered by your love, but you know what, we were hoping D G
You could show your love some other way than groping. D A D

Don't touch my belly or I'll kill you! (I'll kill you!)
Don't touch my belly or you'll die (Start praying)
It's not that I don't like you,
Although right now? I DON'T LIKE YOU
Anyway, so... killing. I'm just saying.

Have you heard of morning sickness? It's when pregnant women puke -
So to guide your understanding of the strength of my rebuke
Please consider that you're poking at my half-digested food
I sure hope you're in a do-my-laundry mood.

Don't touch my belly or I'll kill you! (I'll kill you!)
Don't touch my belly or you'll die (Start praying)
It's not that I don't like you,
Although right now? I DON'T LIKE YOU
Anyway, so... killing. I'm just saying.

My family, my friends, my neighbours, customers at work
The people on my bus ride, excited grocery clerks
All reaching out like zombies - does my belly smell like brains?
I'm thinking of investing in a chainsaw.

Don't touch my belly or I'll kill you! (I'll kill you!)
Don't touch my belly or you'll die (Start praying)
It's not that I don't like you,
Or... no, no that was the reason!
Anyway, so... killing. I'm just saying.
Track Name: Itchy Feet
Insert metal fitting to buckle and lift to release Bm D G E
My passport can tell you migration is not just for geese Bm D E G

For my feet itch to move and I dance on the map Bm D
And a faraway friend's like a gift to unwrap E G
I'll leave for a pin or a one-dollar bill Bm D
And I always come home but I cannot be still. G E Bm D E G
I cannot be still Bm D E G
G
My heart is at ease in the place where the home fires burn Bm D G E
But it's somehow improved when I leave it behind and return Bm D E G

For my feet itch to move and I dance on the map Bm D
And a faraway friend's like a gift to unwrap E G
I'll leave for a pin or a one-dollar bill Bm D
And I always come home but I cannot be still. G E Bm D E G
I cannot be still Bm D E G

Ohhh G
old boarding passes Bm
hotel drinking glasses D
taxi-cab snuggling G
vacation day juggling E
Ohhh E
Lost reservations Bm
Decrepit train stations D
the Gideon bible G G
Departures/Arrivals E E

Ahhh Bm D E G
Ahhh Bm D E G

It's the distance between us that keeps us together Bm D
For I love you as the wild goose loves his feathers G E

And I cannot be still Bm D E G
I cannot be still Bm D E G
Track Name: My Time Again
I wish I had my time again, I wish I had my time again, I wish I had my time again

Georgia:
I barely felt the needle break the skin
How can you overlook your own... how can you overlook?
What's written in the blood can't be erased
I'm not overreacting. I'm not overreacting.
Shaun, spoken: I know.

I wish I had my time again, I wish I had my time again, I wish I had my time again.

Both:
When I saw the lights were solid red
Every light was, every light was, every light was red
When I saw the lights were solid red
My world ended, my world ended, my world ended

I wish I had my time again, I wish I had my time again, I wish I had my time again.

Shaun:
I can hear your voice but you're not here
And all the cola I can drink does not return you
I can hear your voice but you're not here
And I'm not either, I'm not really, here without you

Shaun:I wish I had my time again I wish I had my time again I wish I had my time again
Georgia: When will you rise? When will you rise?

Shaun:I wish I had my time again I wish I had my time again I wish I had my time again
Georgia: When will you rise? When will you rise?
Track Name: Watson's Hat
I went to the theatre for Sherlock Holmes and my heart nearly skipped a beat D (DaddG D) G D
Doctor Watson came on - I looked him up and down - but I didn't spend very long on his feet D (DaddG D) A Bb A

Oh you may swoon for the handsome faces, but baby they leave me flat G Gsus4 G D
I've set my aim just a little bit higher - I'm in love with Watson's hat D (DaddG D) G A7 D
Oh yes I'm in love with his bowler hat G A7 D

I'm hoping that Watson & Holmes hook up, though it ain't what Conan Doyle intended D (DaddG D) G D
'Cause if those pretty boys take their weskits off, that beautiful hat will be left unattended D (DaddG D) A Bb A

Oh you may swoon for the handsome faces, but baby they leave me flat G Gsus4 G D
I've set my aim just a little bit higher - I'm in love with Watson's hat D (DaddG D) G A7 D
Oh yes I'm in love with his bowler hat G A7 D

Yeah I'm bowled-over by that brown bowler - G Gsus4 G
It's a topper that can't be topped D
If you'd be a good chap and just... tip your cap... G Gsus4
Baby my heart would just stop A Bb A

I don't need to know your income, dear, or examine your social stature D (DaddG D) G D
If you want my love just let know the name of your haberdasher D (DaddG D) A Bb A

Oh you may swoon for the handsome faces, but baby they leave me flat G Gsus4 G D
I've set my aim just a little bit higher - I'm in love with Watson's hat D (DaddG D) G A7 D
Oh yes I'm in love with his bowler hat G A7 D
That's right, I'm in love with a bowler hat G A7 D
