Em         G             C          Em          D      C
  When you come home the neighbours look at you funny
                     Em         G    C             Em        D    C
  Thank someone, I dunno, maybe God,   that you're not new money
          Em       G    C              Em      D        C
  So it's up the stairs   and lock the world away
                Em        G    C         Em          D     C

  No, you're not on your own

[Verse] :  
Em   G       C        Em             D        C
  Yellow Lambretta is knocked on its side
       Em             G        C     Em       D        C
  It's begging you to steal it   and go for a ride
Em            G             C               Em   D        C
  Just let me know and I'll meet you in the 17   th
              Em       G         C            Em        D
  And you can bore me again with how much you love Halloween

  How much you love Halloween

[Pre Chorus] :  
Em          G       C                Em    D
  Your afternoon is peppered with regret
                              C
  And all the things that you wanna forget
            Em               G           C
  Well just know that you're not on your own

  No, you're not on your own

[Verse] :  
Em          G              C               Em             D
  If you've risen just the second that the sun goes down
                              C
  You wash away your sins and feel the pull of the town
  Em               G           C
  Know that you're not on your own
             Em          D     C
  No, you're not on your own

Em             G           C         Em        D
  Everyone can hear you but nobody's listening
                            C
  We've got another wedding and another christening
Em           G            C             Em      D
  We have to go to before we get to the summer
                                 C
  Might have to back door it and do another runner
Em     G         C       Em    D
  Like someone I used to know
                      C
  But please don't go there

[Chorus] :  
                G
  Because we're having such a good time
  Em                      D   C
  Having such a good time
        G
  We're having such a good time
  Em                       D   C
  Having such a good time

[Verse] :  
      Em    G   C            Em           D         C
  The Irish bar   is kicking out for the first time
           Em       G       C        Em      D          C
  It seems nobody's playing Shanghai    like last night
           Em        G              C      Em      D  C
  So let's find that place with the pink neon sign
               Em        G       C            Em        D     C
  The one that points to you and says 'do you wanna be mine?'

  We've got another wedding and another christening
Em           G            C             Em       D
  We have to go to before we get to the summer
                                 C
  Might have to back door it and do another runner
Em     G         C       Em       D
  Like someone I used to know

  We're having such a good time

  Having such a good time
