Grouch of the Day (Difford/Tilbrook)
Intro-  A  F#m A  F#m



                 A

I feel my chin hit my chest

                                   F#m

as I do my best to stay calm

             C#m

I feel my face start to ache

                     E

as I try to shake the alarm

        F#m                    Bm

As I roll on my side there's a smile on her face

                C#m                      F#m

That says much more than words ever will

             Bm               E               A          Asus  A

About how she maintains all the spirit she's gained.



                        C#m

When  I'm grouch of the day

                Bm

When I've drifted away

            C#m                      Bm

And I'm moping around in a sulk,

                         C#m

She'll have something to say

               Bm           C#m                       Bm

And I usually obey then I get my resentments in bulk

                        E       Esus

That's the price that you pay

               E                  Esus

For being grouch of the day

                        E       Esus

That's the price that you pay

                   E                       Esus

For being grouch of the day

                        E      Esus

That's the price that you pay

           E      D        A    Asus A

For being grouch of the day



A

(Whoa-whoa) Grouch of the day

A F#m  (ad-lib)

            A   

As my legs start to shake

                                  F#m

The feeling is great and I'm gone

          C#m                                   E

I feel butterflies wing as she starts to sling music on

             F#m                       Bm

As she rolls on her back with her smile full of charm

           C#m                  F#m

That says much more than words ever will

          Bm

About how the delight of her

E        F     F#m

Good time tonight

           G          C#m      E

Makes me look like I'm over the hill

                   Bm

Her beauty erodes

                E

The desperate loads of pressure

       Bm           E

That fills up my day

                                D           E   A      Asus  A  

With one smile all the stress melts away



                        C#m

When  I'm grouch of the day

               Bm

When I've drifted away

                C#m                  Bm

And I'm moping around in a sulk,

                        C#m

She'll have something to say

         Bm              C#m             Bm

And I usually obey then I get my resentments in bulk

                        E       Esus

That's the price that you pay

                   E

For being grouch of the day
