Intro

G Am C D x 2

Verse 1
  G                        Am
  Stuck with the Ayatollah on the beach
      C                   D
  The civilised world so far outta reach
G                 Am
  It don’t pay to believe the hype
  C                        D
  Hot, sick and bored in a world of strife

Verse 2

G                 Am
  Rubber souls on everyone
  C             D 
  Dodgey pants, too much sun
G                          Am
  Guess it’s something you get use to
  C                    D
  Seal the deal with a cheap tattoo

Chorus

C                        D
  You give an inch, they take mile
  G         G/F#      Em
  Trying it on with a sweet little smile
C            D    
  How stupid can ya get
  G         G/F#      Em
  Check the mirror in case you forget
  C                 D
  Man I wish I’d forget

Verse 3

G                   Am
  Hold tight it’s a hell of a ride
           C                     D 
  Both the porcelain bus and the taxi drive
G                            Am
  There’s no sense none that I can see
      C                        D 
  The natives aren’t restless, just crazy

Verse 4

G            Am
  Rabid dogs brawling cats
C                D
  Who the hell’s buying this crap
G                    Am
  Hold your nose and enjoy the sights
C                    D
  C’mon man don’t be so uptight

Chorus

C                        D
  You give an inch, they take mile
  G         G/F#      Em
  Trying it on with a sweet little smile
C            D    
  How stupid can ya get
  G         G/F#      Em
  Check the mirror in case you forget
  C                 D
  Man I wish I’d forget

  Solo (whistle over the Verse chords)

Bridge

C                       D
  I don’t mind a little fun in the sand
         G             G/F#         Em
  In the middle of the night with a beer in my hand
C                         D
  But something’s getting hard to bear
  G             G/F#        Em
  The perennial sweat in my underwear
  C                      D
  Underwear to sweaty to bear

Outro

  G                        Am
  Stuck with the Ayatollah on the beach
      C                   D
  The civilised world so far outta reach
G                   Am
  It don’t pay to believe the hype
  C                        D             G
  Hot, sick and bored in a world of strife
