Lyrics to The Hussy's Tiger EP

Early songs written by James McColl for his new band.

Tiger

A E F C / G A / C G D A (E D C B)
I was stacking up the shelves
In the stupid supermarket
When you appeared like something out the bible
In amongst the cans of peas
And part time drudgery
I found salvation in a fleeting moment
Oh love will always come and bite your backside
Like a little tiger hiding in the trees
Oh love will always come and bite your backside
Like a little spider in between the sheets
Aah (aah)
We set sail in your car
Round the car parks of the town
You were the captain of my misadventure
And then the spell wore off
I realised that you were
A bigger loser than even I was
And all the cash you spent
On anger management
You should have spent on me
Or a children's charity
Its all fluorescent light
And shiftwork through the night
It#s hard to summon up enthusiasm
In amongst the frozen foods and Japanese white goods
There's a part of you that I just can't fathom
Like a little Tiger...
Do do do (repeat)

We Expected

D A E / _G B A / middle-8: D B F# A
You got accepted for Cambridge Uni
Fell in love with a long haired loony
Sent me emails saying you had changed
Priorities re-arranged
I was working in a petrol station
Can't say it was my lifeís vocation
Wish that I could clear my tanks of grieving
Give me a card that could swipe those feelings
We expected great things from you
But you let us down
You let us down
Ooh
I sweep the floor and I shut the pumps down
I miss so much having you around town
Are you shining in debating chambers
While Iím sitting counting change for strangers?
We expected great things
We expected great things from you
You said Iíd never be a real musician
And theres a part of me thatís been missing
Think you're gonna get a first class degree
And a masters in dishonesty
I think about you in your Citroen CV
I see your ghost in the closed circuit TV
And if you're home for Michaelmass
Donít drop in if you're driving past
Yeah

Warm & Fuzzy

^E D B G B / vE G A B D / solo=E D B A G E
My legs are shaking,
My heart is breaking
But in a good way
There is no bad way
You make me warm and fuzzy inside [x2]
Donít know if I hate you
Or maybe I love you
My left is on my right
Was easy but now Iím tied
Donít know what Iím gonna do
But I do know that Iím gonna do you
[Guitar into space synth]
You make me warm and fuzzy inside
Donít know what Iím gonna do
But I do know that Iím gonna do you
Whoo

I Can't Touch My Snowboard Since You Broke My Heart

Verse: G#, glock:B / G C A B G / bridge: DBC EDC
The snowy mountains look so pretty
But Iím stuck down in the city
With my head underneath the duvet
Wish you were here to make it groovy
You could take me by the hand,
To a winterís wonderland
And even though its zero degrees
You melt my soul like antifreeze
I canít touch my snowboard since you broke my heart [x2]
Since you broke my heart [x2]
Your smile fades like a winter sun
Youíve taken away all my fun
For goodness sake why canít you see?
That you were made to board with me
So please take me by the hand,
To a winterís wonderland
We can start on the nursery slopes
And if I fell I think Iíll cope cause
I canít touch my snowboard since you broke my heart [x2]
Since you broke my heart [x2]
[Guitar solo]
I canít remember the last time I smiled,
I know for sure that itís been a while
For goodness sake why canít you see?
That you were made to hang with me
So please take me by the hand,
To a winterís wonderland
And if we fall I can handle the pain
I just want you back again cause
I canít touch my snowboard since you broke my heart [x4]
Since you broke my heart [x4]
