Milkcrate
(on The irony engine 7")

D                          D/Asus4 
all i've got is a pool key but it lets me in
Em7                      G                             D                 Asus4
to the place where the surface of the water breaks its contract with the skin
D                              D/Asus4
and you could twist it cruelly like a lime in gin
Em7                        G                   D               Asus4
but i've been leaving my screen-door open halfway hopin' you'd drop in

and all the clothes in this milkcrate they're yours for good
we can take them out to the car and we can lean against the hood
and you can tell me it's still great to come by and chat
but i'm not completely convinced that you're willing to leave it at that

so 
D              Em7 
let's sit down take off our shoes
G            Asus4              D       Asus4
let's just amuse ourselves from noon til two
D              Em7
let's lie down take off our clothes
G            Asus4               F#          G
and just suppose that there's no starting over to do
        F#          G
there's no starting over to do
       F#        G              D
there's no there's no starting over

D        D/Asus4         Em7    G    D   Asus4 A

Eb             C             E
an army of lovers can be beaten
Eb                 C                   E
but have you ever tried to defeat just one?
Eb                  C                G            C
just straighten the covers while i neaten up the corners
        G                    C                Am    C
of the mattress where this struggle's just begun

D              Em7
let's sit down take off our shoes
G           Asus4               D       Asus4
let's not misuse the time from noon til two
D              Em7
let's lie down take off our clothes
G             Asus4                F        Bb      Gm
let's just suppose that there's no starting over to do 
          F         Bb      Gm
there's no starting over to do 
          F         Bb      Gm
there's no starting over to do 
         Bb         C           D
there's no there's no starting over
