F                                                   Dm7
Post office clerks put up signs saying 'Position Closed'
F                                                     Dm7
And secretaries turn off typewriters and put on their coats
A#                    F            C                A#
Janitors padlock the gates for security guards to patrol
                              F
And bachelors phone up their friends for a drink
           C                     A#
While the married ones turn on a chat show
            F              A#                  F
And they'll all be lonely tonight and lonely tomorrow


F					    Dm7
'Gentlemen, time please, you know we can't serve any more'
F					          Dm7
Now the traffic lights change to stop when there's nothing to go
A#		                  F
And by five' o' clock everything's dead
C		     A#
And every third car is a cab,
		F
And ignorant people sleep in there beds
	C		   A#
Like the doped white mice in the college lab

Chorus:
 F           A#        F                  A#
Nothing ever happens, nothing happens at all:
    Dm                    A#
The needle returns to the start of the song
       C                   A#
And we all sing along like before
           F             A#                 F
And we'll all be lonely tonight and lonely tomorrow


F				         C     Dm7
Telephone exchanges click while there's nobody there
     F					                 Dm7
The Martians could land in the car park and no one could care
    A#		             F
The close-circuit cameras in department stores
          C	           A#		
Shoot the same movie everyday
                                     F
And the stars of these films neither die nor get killed
         C			 A#     F   Gm C
Just to survive constant action replay

Interlude:
    G  Dm7 G  Dm7
    F  G   F  G   F

F				       Dm7
Bill hoardings advertise products that nobody needs
       F				                Dm7
While 'Angry from Manchester' writes to complain about all the repeats on TV
    A#		      F
And computer terminals report
                  C                    A#
Some gains on the values of copper and tin,
			    F
While American businessmen snap up Van Goghs
         C                  A#    F    Gm C  			
For the price of a hospital wing
