Verse 1:

C                F
 Pale, pubescent beasts,
                 G
Roam through the streets,
           Am
And coffee-shops,
      Dm7            F
Their prey gather in herds,
                     Eb
Of stiff knee-length skirts,
                C#
And white ankle-socks.
    C
But while they search,
      A
For a mate,
              G
My type hiber-nate,
              Am
In bedrooms a-bove,
    D7           F
Com-posing their songs,
   C
Of love.

Verse 2:

C               F
 Young, uniform minds,
           G
In uniform lines,
            Am
And uniform ties,
    Dm7
Run round,
                 F
With trousers on fire,
                Eb
And signs of de-sire,
                C#
They cannot dis-guise.
      C             F
While I try to find words,
                G
As light as the birds,
              Am
That circle a-bove, 
   D7        F
To put in my songs,
   C
Of love.

Bridge 1:
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/n/neil_hannon/songs_of_love_crd.html ]
Ab            Bb
 Fate doesn't hang,
     C
On a wrong,
         Am
Or right choice,
Ab          Bb
 Fortune de-pends,
       C
On the tone,
        G
Of your voice.

Verse 3:

   C
So sing while,
         F
You have time,
            G
Let the sun shine,
            Am
Down from a-bove;
    D7
And fill you,
     F        C
With songs of love.

Bridge 2:

Ab            Bb
 Fate doesn't hang,
     C
On a wrong,
         Am
Or right choice,
Ab          Bb
 Fortune de-pends,
       C
On the tone,
        G
Of your voice.

Verse 3:

         C
So let's sing,
               F
While we still can,
              G
While the sun hangs,
          Am
High up a-bove,
D          F
 Wonderful songs,
   Am  C
Of lo..ove,
D7         F
 Beautiful songs, 
G   C
 Of love.
