CHORUS
Bm7             E
Donkey talk

               Bm7           E
I can hear the donkey talk

                      Em
Words chained out in a line

F#              Am  G    F
Loads of reason not much rhyme

Em              Am    G F
Finger drumming beats behind

Em               Am G   C
Donkey talk most of the time


VERSE
Bm
    The conversation peters out

           E
    So you stare down at your shoes

                             D
    There's not much more to talk about

             Bm      A
    When the silence is confused

             G
    Then our eyes suddenly meet

           C               D
    And we choose to look away

                      E
    That's just where we are today

(CHORUS)

VERSE
    There's no sense in hanging round
    But we stand there all the same
    You find a verb I pluck a noun
    As the patience starts to strain
    Then our words suddenly clash
    As if there's so much to say
    That's just where we are today

(CHORUS)

MIDDLE 8
F                          C/E
    We used to stay up all night

             Dm       G             C
    With our eyes all bloodshot and wonky

             Cm
    We would hold each other tight

                 G/D       G     C
    And talk the back legs off a donkey

                G
    But now I'm wearing its hat

             Dm                   Fm
    We can't even laugh at that

(CHORUS)
