Tonight I Fancy Myself  Beautiful South

[C]  [F]  [C]  [F]  [C]  [F]  [C]  [F]                       
[C]She'd brought along the [F]oranges
[C]He'd brought the [F]tea
[Dm]They'd both brought along a [F]sick-bag just in [C]case [F]  [C]  [F]

The plate of chicken sandwiches
Were lovely they agreed
And I [Dm]watched him spit the [F]bits into her [C]face [F]  [C]  [F]

"Do you love me like you used to" he sighs
"I [Dm]love you twice as [G]much" she rep[C]lies [F]  [C]  [F]
They were on the train to Venice, where else?
I [Dm]think tonight I [G]fancy my[C]self [F]  [C]  [F]

[G]                                     
(Chorus)
I'd rather [C]drink that toast to [F]my own health
I think [C]tonight I'd rather [G]love myself
And if you [C]drink that drink to [F]your own health
I think [C]tonight I'd rather [G]love mysel[C]f [F]  [C]  [F]
(end Chorus)

Later in the evening
The sun came rolling down
And they [Dm]talked about their [F]fantasies and [C]fears [F]  [C]  [F]

Between the heavy breathing
And those lighter licking sounds
I [Dm]heard him whisper[F] this question in her [C]ear [F]  [C]  [F]

"Would you still love me if I lost my legs?"
"I'd [Dm]see that you were [G]loved and you were [C]fed" [F]  [C]  [F]
"I end up in a car crash almost dead"
"For [Dm]richer and for [G]partly severed [C]head" [F]  [C]  [F]

(Chorus)

[Am]The neighbours ask them out but they [G]flatly refuse
[Am]"We're saving up for a world-wide [G]cruise"
With a [Am]choice between loneliness and lovesick [G]QE2's
Well tonight I [Am]choose - self [Em-G-C]abuse  [F]  [C]  [F]

A four-pack in the fridge
A good book on the shelf
I [Dm]think tonight I'd [G]rather love my[C]self

[C]She'd brought al[Fmaj7]ong the oranges
H[C]e'd brought the[Fmaj7] tea
They'd b[Dm]oth brought along a sic[F]k-bag just in c[C]ase     [Fmaj7]

The pl[C]ate of chicken sa[Fmaj7]ndwiches
Were lo[C]vely they a[Fmaj7]greed
And I wa[Dm]tched him spit the b[F]its into her f[C]ace         [Fmaj7]

"Do you l[C]ove me like you [Fmaj7]used to?" he si[C]ghs           [Fmaj7]
"I l[Dm]ove you twice as m[G]uch" she rep[C]lies                [Fmaj7]
They were [C]on the train to V[Fmaj7]enice, where e[C]lse?         [Fmaj7]
I t[Dm]hink tonight I fa[G]ncy my[C]self                        [Fmaj7]

[G]I'd rather dr[C]ink that toast to[Fmaj7] my own health
[C]I think tonight I'd rather l[G]ove myself
And if you dr[C]ink that drink to[Fmaj7] your own health
[C]I think tonight I'd rather l[G]ove mysel[C]f                [Fmaj7]

[C]Later in the e[Fmaj7]vening
The s[C]un came rolling [Fmaj7]down
And they ta[Dm]lked about their fan[F]tasies and f[C]ears       [Fmaj7]

Be[C]tween the heavy br[Fmaj7]eathing
And those li[C]ghter licking s[Fmaj7]ounds
I h[Dm]eard him whisper this que[F]stion in her e[C]ar          [Fmaj7]

"Would y[C]ou still love me[Fmaj7] if I lost my l[C]egs?"          [Fmaj7]
"I'd [Dm]see that you were lo[G]ved and you were f[C]ed"        [Fmaj7]
"I e[C]nd up in a[Fmaj7] car crash almost d[C]ead"                 [Fmaj7]
"For ri[Dm]cher and for pa[G]rtly severed h[C]ead"              [Fmaj7]

[G]I'd rather dr[C]ink that toast to[Fmaj7] my own health
[C]I think tonight I'd rather l[G]ove myself
And if you dr[C]ink that drink to[Fmaj7] your own health
[C]I think tonight I'd rather l[G]ove mysel[C]f                [Fmaj7]

[Am]The neighbours ask them out but they f[Em]latly refuse
[Am]"We're saving up for a world-wide c[Em]ruise"
With a ch[Am]oice between loneliness and lov[Em]e-sick QE2's
Well tonight I ch[Am]oose - self[G]-abu[G7]se        [C]            [Fmaj7]

[C]A four-pack in the f[Fmaj7]ridge
A g[C]ood book on the s[Fmaj7]helf
I t[Dm]hink tonight I'd ra[G]ther love my[C]self
