Tone: [G]
Intro:
[G] [C] [G] [C]
[ G C]It was an upset in two minutes flat
[ G C]We were back on the freeway, foot to the mat
[ Em A7]I can't understand it; we had it down pat
[ C D]It's very upsetting, could we leave it at that?
[ G C]We all had positions; we each had a role
[ G C]We'd over-rehearsed it; we had full control
[ Em A7]They can't teach you acting, it's there in your soul
[ C D]It's the same with a bank job, and each thing we stole
 
So[ Em] I do[F#/D]n't n[G]eed attitude
Cause you knew just [Em]wha[F#/D]what to [G]do
[ C]We all did our best now
[ B/C]We all need to rest now
[ A7]Leave me alone
[ D]Wait by the phone
 
[ G C]I was the driver; you ran the show
[ G C]You had the last word, the go or no go
[ Em A7]I knew every laneway in Ontario
[ C D]But it's not what you're
sure of, it's what you don't know
[ G C]It should have been filled with the usual ones
[ G ]Throwin[C]Throwing their cash into mutual funds
[ Em ]We all had our ski [A7]masks and sawed-off shotguns
[ C ]But how[D]how do you plan for a bank full of nuns?
 
[ G ]Well, I gu[C]guess we panicked - we all have taboos
[ G ]And they w[C]were like zebras; they had us confused
[ Em ]We shoul[A7]should be in condos with oceanfront views
[ C ]Instead we're[D]we're most-wanted on the six o'clock news
 
So[ Em] I do[F#/D]n't n[G]eed attitude
C[ Em]Cause [F#/D]you k[G]knew just what to do
[ C]We all did our best now
[ B/C]We all need to rest now
[ ]Lea[A7]Leave me alone
[ ]And[D]And wait by the phone
 
Break:
[Em] [F#/D] [G] [C] [F#/D]
[C] [B/C] [C] [D] [x2]
 
In[ ]Inside [G C]the police car you tried to explain
[ ]your cris[G C]crisis of conscience; the voice in your brain
[ ]And [Em ]now that[A7]that the whole thing has gone down the drain
[ C D]I think we all know who should shoulder the blame
[ G C]Cause you made a choice there, almost sublime
[ G C]I'm all for compassion, just not on my dime
[ Em A7]You looked like an amateur, and that's the real crime
[ C ]So I'll [D]take a walk now, and you do the time
 
And[ ]And I [Em]don[F#/D]'t ne[G]ed attitude
[ ]Cause [Em]you[F#]you kn[G]knew just what to do
[ C]We all did our best now
[ B/C]We all need to rest now
[ ]Lea[A7]Leave me alone
[ ]There'[D]There's no need to phone
 
 
[G] [D] We all did our best now
[G] [D] We all need to rest now
[G] [D] Leave me alone
[G] [D] We all did our best now
[G] [D] We all need to rest now
[G] [D] Leave me alone
[G] [D] Leave me alone
