Lyrics
I've just bought a capo and put it on my guitar
it has not improved my playing, but it means that I can change the key quite easily
I do not jest, I could only sings songs in the key of C, and I’d disregard the rest
Mmmm, mmm, mmm .....

When I tried to play in F my fingers really felt the strain
All that stretching and that barreing,
In the quiet of the kitchen I was running scared
Playing low, seeking out the simple fretting cheats
Where poor guitarists go
Looking for the chord shapes only they would know

Lie la lie ...

Turning over Mel Bay's pages I went looking for advice *
But I get no offers,
Just some patronising comments on a forum
I do declare, there were times when I was so confused
I wished I wasn't there

Lie la lie ...


In the clearing stands a guitar But it doesn't look quite right
I can see it's got a headstock
And a body and a bridge but there's no fretboard
Where's the fretboard, the bloody neck has gone
Much too late I learn what happens
when you leave the capo on, leave the capo on…

Lie la lie ...
