"Pulling Mussels From The Shell" by Squeeze 		I think this is a little
closer J

Am         G       F             E                Dm
They do it down on camber sands, They do it at Waikiki
G             						F
Lazing about the beach all day, All night the crickets creepy
E                      	F      C               	  F#
Squinting faces at the sky, A Harrold Robbins paperback
E                             	F            C                F#
Surfers drop their boards and dry, And everybody wants a hat

G#Am  G        F      G      Am   G      F
But behind the Chalet, My holiday's complete
 G      Am        G          F         E
And I feel like William Tell
     Dm      C  Bflat   A         G#  G
Maid Marion on her      tiptoed feet
                        C     G
Pulling mussels from the shell,
                        F       G#
Pulling mussels from the shell

Am            G           F         E                Dm
Shrinking in the sea so cold, Topless ladies look away
 G 						   F
A he-man in a sunken shower, Shelters from the rain
E                       F           C                   F#
You wish you had a motor boat, To pose around the harbor bar
E                           F       C                        F#
And when the sun goes out to bed, You hook it up behind the car


G#Am  G        F         G      Am   G      F
But behind the Chalet, My holiday's complete
 G   Am        G          F         E
And I feel like William Tell
   Dm      C  Bflat   A         G#  G
Maid Marion on her      tiptoed feet
                            C     G
Pulling mussels from the shell,
                            F       G#
Pulling mussels from the shell

Am       G           F                 E                Dm
Two fat ladies window shop, Something for the mantelpiece
G 						        F
In for bingo all the nines, A panda for sweet little niece
E                       F      C                  F#
The coach drivers stand about, Looking at a local map
E                        F       C               F#
About the boy he's gone away, Down to next door's caravan

 G#Am  G        F      G      Am   G      F
But behind the Chalet, My holiday's complete

I saw this in the archive and it was so confusing I was motivated to
help it out, I think the words are correct, but more important, I
believe the chords are in the right place.

This is a cool song, so enjoy. Mike Makarov

Subject: "Pulling Mussels" correction

Here it is: the Squeeze classic, "Pulling Mussels From The Shell,"
written by Glenn Tilbrook and Chris Difford, from the 1980 album
"Argybargy."
Difford and Tilbrook often perform this song acoustic -- in fact, I
started
playing it after seeing them on an early "Unplugged" before it got
trendy
with big stars. Note: I use G# and climb back down to G on the chorus,
but
on TV they played a different chord which I couldn't figure out
visually.
Also, they skip the solo and go straight to the last verse...Enjoy!
