"Under the Mask of Happiness" as written by and Parker....
Intro

The majors can be played by sliding the E shape up and
leaving bottom and top strings open. A* 0077650 B* 099870


All the dirt's lying under the carpet
He swallowed a drink then checked her heartbeat
Her wedding gown has been burned to ashes
Fanned by the flutter of her false eyelashes be
One last chance to kiss again She looked so good he looked so sane
Not forever could they last Under the mask under the mask
Under the mask of happiness Under the mask of happiness
She got colder with each incision
No-one knew he had a fatal vision
One last chance to kiss again Your mother knows her baby's pain
Not forever could they last Under the mask under the mask
Under the mask of happiness Under the mask of happiness
Under the mask, Under the mask, Under the mask,
Under the mask, Under the mask, Under the mask

(lead guitar) Instrumental chords

Look at them walking look at them kiss
What a picture of domestic bliss
Laughing and laughing like clockwork toys
Until they're broken girls and boys

One last chance to kiss again
she looked so good he looked so sane
Not forever could they last
