Elevator Operator

  		 
 


E 
  Oliver Paul, twenty years old 

A5 
Thick head of hair, worries he's going bald 

E 
  Wakes up at quarter past nine 

A5 
Fair evades his way down the 96 tram line 

E 
Breakfast on the run again, he's well aware 

     A5                                        E     A5 E A5  
He's dropping soy linseed Vegemite crumbs everywhere 

E 
  Feeling sick at the sight of his computer 

   A5 
He dodges his way through the Swanston commuters 

E 
Rips off his tie, hands it to a homeless man 

A                                                   E 
Sleeping in the corner of a metro bus stand and he screams 


"I'm not going to work today 

          A5 
Going to count the minutes that the trains run late 

E                                                      A5  E E/F# E7/G A5 
  Sit on the grass building pyramids out of Coke cans" 

E 
Headphone wielding to the Nicholas building 

   A5 
He trips on a pothole that's not been filled in 

  E                                 
He waits for an elevator, one to nine 

  A5 
A lady walks in and waits by his side 

   E 
Her heels are high and her bag is snakeskin 

A5 
Hair pulled so tight you can see her skeleton 

E 
Vickers perfume on her breath 

  A5 
A tortoise shell necklace between her breasts 

             E 
She looks him up and down with a botox frown 

     A5 
He's well used to that look by now 

    E       E/F#            E7/G       A5 
The elevator dings and they awkwardly step in 

      E       E/F#         E7/G    A5 
Their fingers touch on the rooftop button 

       E                      A5 
Don't jump little boy, don't jump off that roof 

                 E                               A5 
You've got your whole life ahead of you, you're still in your youth 

E                          A5            E A5 
I'd give anything to have skin like you 

         E 
He said "I think you're projecting the way that you're feeling 

    A5 
I'm not suicidal, just idling insignificantly 

   E 
I come up here for perception and clarity 

   A5 
I like to imagine I'm playing SimCity 

         E               E/F#         E7/G   A5 
All the people look like ants from up here 

         E               E/F#           E7/G  A5 
And the wind's the only traffic you can hear" 

          E    E/F#       E7/G  A5 
He said "All I ever wanted to be 

        E       E/F#          E7/G        A5 
Was an elevator operator, can you help me please?" 

       E                      A5 
Don't jump little boy, don't jump off that roof 

                 E                               A5 
You've got your whole life ahead of you, you're still in your youth 

E                          A5            E  A5 
I'd give anything to have skin like you 

       E                      A5 
Don't jump little boy, don't jump off that roof 

                  E                              A5 
You've got your whole life ahead of you, you're still in your youth 

E                          A5             E A5 
I'd give anything to have skin like you
