Arctic Monkeys - The Bad Thing: chords

Chorus:
Em     Bm
Do the bad thing
Am             G       F#
Take off your wedding ring
Em                Bm
But it won't make it that much easier
Am                G   F#
It might make it worse

        Dm
Oh, the night's like a whirlwind
                         Am
Somebody's girlfriend is talking
to me but it's alright
                       Dm
She's saying that he's not gonna
slap me or try to attack me
Am
He's not the jealous type

      Dm                         Am
And I only need to get half an excuse
and I'm away
     Dm                                  Am
But when there's no excuses that's much easier
to say

            Dm                        Am
I've been before and all these capers make
                      Dm
her too forward to ignore
                      Am
She's talking but I'm not entirely sure

Chorus

         Dm
Oh, I'm stood at the bar and somebody's partner's
talking to me but I don't know what that is
What she isn't she murmurs things
to confirm that the tragedy is true
      Dm                                      Am
And I knew "how could she not, she could have anyone she wants"
          Dm                        Am
And I'm struggling to think of an immediate response,

Like "I don't mind, be a big mistake for you
to wait and help me waste your time
Really love it's fine", said "really love it's
fine"


        Em                                    Bm
And the first time it occurred that there was something to destroy
    Am                         G                   F#
I knew before the invitation that there was this ploy
             Em                        Bm
Oh, but she carried on suggesting, I struggled to refuse
     Am                                     G          F#   Em
She said "it's the red wine this time but that is no excuse"
