Miles is off to Cetaganda and oh yeah, Ivan too To pay respects to noble dead and foil a plot or two While Miles is being a hero, Ivan's drinking poisoned beer The ambassador just wants to know: why the hell is Ivan here! chorus: Ivan, you idiot! What are you doing here? You're going to screw up everything just by being near You mean well and you're handsome, but that's all that we can say We'll call you when there's donkey work, until then STAY AWAY Admiral Naismith's come to Earth to rest his weary feet There's just one little problem: there's no cash to fix his fleet He's off to hit the embassy to ask them what the fuck But guess who's just been posted there, of all the rotten luck! Captain Illyan's memory chip is causing him some pain A sabotager's virus has infected his poor brain Friends gather by his bedside to comfort and explain But through his sick confusion he knows enough to proclaim: The Council of Counts has begun and things are looking grim Lord Dono wants to be a Count but there's no sign of him Wait, here he comes with Ivan! It seems he's saved the day You'd think Miles would be grateful but instead all he can say is: capo 2 - G C G (C G) G D7 G G7 C Cm G C G D G

I thought when I first met you all we'd ever do is fight Em C Em C I wish I hadn't tried so hard to prove that I was right G Cm G Em Now that you're gone I guess I got the last word Em C Em C It isn't worth as much as I thought G Cm G And I'd take it all back if I thought that you could hear G B+ Em G7 But it's too late / Final sale. C Cm G Cm G I know that there is a lesson for me here G B+ Em G7 But I just feel alone C Cm G I still don't like you; I don't think you liked anyone You were so angry you burned everything you touched I was waiting for indifference when that phone call finally came Imagine my surprise to find regret And I'd take it all back if I thought that you could hear But i's too late / Final sale. I know this is a lesson I should learn But I just feel alone

I walked in to my favourite bar when a vision stopped me mid-step A handsome man standing all alone who looked just like Johnny Depp I said "Hey there darling, won't you lead me astray?" He said "Honey, I'm a married man and I'm going home to pray." Trouble come by here, trouble come by here If you can't think of some mischief to do, I'll whisper in your ear It's been so goddamn peaceful, I'm so bored that I could cry Come on down and stir things up, trouble give me a try I knew it was a Hell's Angels bar when I walked in to the place I like to make a good impression, so I said "I don't like your face" Momma said I shouldn't be so violent, but I can't resist a fight But they said "Oh, we're Canadian" it's really quite alright." You're not supposed to eat candy, they've shown it causes plaque You can't grow pot in your backyard, it's just too hard to tax You can't make love down on the beach, they lock the gates at night Well if it's wrong to have some fun, I don't want to be right

I never thought I'd see you blush You were the river that would never flood But now your secret's out, it's on your face Written in blood, written in blood I was supposed to never know I understand, I've always understood The question isn't do I feel the same It's whether I should, whether I should How did the talking get so straight It was supposed to stay one big joke Cover up your burning heart With a blanket of smoke, a blanket of smoke I never thought I'd see you blush You were the river that would never flood But now your secret's out, it's on your face Written in blood, written in blood G Cm G G Cm G G Cm G Cm F G
