Artist: Graham Parker
Album: The Mona Lisa's Sister

 005453 005352 224232 x79870
Intro Cmaj7 Em add9 Cmaj7 Bm7 Emaj9

The majors can be played by sliding the E shape up and
leaving bottom and top strings open. A* 0077650 B* 099870

E A E
All the dirt's lying under the carpet
A E
He swallowed a drink then checked her heartbeat
A E
Her wedding gown has been burned to ashes
A E
Fanned by the flutter of her false eyelashes

B
One last chance to kiss again She looked so good he looked so sane
A
Not forever could they last Under the mask under the mask
E A* E
Under the mask of happiness Under the mask of happiness

She got colder with each incision
No-one knew he had a fatal vision

One last chance to kiss again Your mother knows her baby's pain
Not forever could they last Under the mask under the mask
Under the mask of happiness Under the mask of happiness

E E7 A
Under the mask, Under the mask, Under the mask,
E
Under the mask, Under the mask, Under the mask

(lead guitar) Instrumental chords go A E A E E E7 A A7

Look at them walking look at them kiss
What a picture of domestic bliss
Laughing and laughing like clockwork toys
Until they're broken girls and boys

One last chance to kiss again
she looked so good he looked so sane
Not forever could they last
E E7 A
Under the mask, Under the mask,
E E7 A
Under the mask, Under the mask,
E E7 A
Under the mask, Under the mask,

Under the mask of happiness (repeat and fade)
