about

The original acoustic EP from Signposted Disaster, five songs written in standard tuning with limited knowledge of guitar and poor songwriting skills. With added Stevie to make it better.

NOTE: This EP will NEVER be available, except through the original CD's (which are all gone) or the complete collection CD release "No One Likes: The Acoustic Collection" (available direct from me for £3), due to file format issues.

credits

released March 31, 2010

Richard Cowley (Ric): Guitar, Vocals

Steven Partington (Stevie): Additional Instruments

Track Name: I'd Do Alice
E A E
I’ve been watching Twilight, and I have to say I’m glad
A E
Cos I know which one of them that I would like to have
D A
Bella is a total bitch, I just can’t tell why
D A
All the fella’s fall for her when she’s with another guy

E A E
I think I want a vampire, one that sparkles in the sun
A E
And I couldn’t ever kill, even with a gun
D A
Edward’s pretty nice and all, but he just isn’t that hot
D A
Emmet seems kinda cool, but at the same time, maybe not

(I’ll tell ya what)
D A E
I’d do Alice
D A E

D
I’d
A
Do
E
Alice

(chords repeat until end of song)
I thought about them werewolves but they just don’t catch my eye
Maybe I should stop thinking about doing it with a guy

Jacob’s really nice and sweet but he seems sorta gay
And the rest of them, well, I dunno, what else can I say?

I want me a vampire, who can stay with me all night
And in terms of “in the sack” she’ll be outta sight

Esme has the MILF thing going, but I’m not down with that
Rosalie has long blonde hair, she’d look good in a hat

(But seriously)

I want Alice
I’d Alice
I’d
Do
Alice

You might think it’s kinda weird that I’ve given this so much thought
But trust me friend, look at her! She’s just so damn hot

She’s got that pixie haircut and it does so much for me
When she bounds up to my door my face’ll be full of glee

And she can see into the future, so she knows I’m great
And she knows when to get out, yeah, how long we will date

I don’t wanna think about that, just before we begin
I want her to come over, so we can commit some sins

(Oh yeah)

I’d do Alice
I’d do Alice
I’d
Do
I’d

Do
Alice

Track Name: Worshippers Need Food
G Em
I haven’t seen my wife and child in
C G
Over three weeks
(chords repeat)
I’ve forgotten her face, her lips
And the way she speaks
My God needs me to worship him
That’s the story I’m sold
But my whole job started getting lame
Since the day I was told

Am D7
The worshippers need food
D7
And no one cares
Am G
The worshippers need food
(chords repeat)
The worshippers need food
And He won’t answer our prayers
The worshippers need food

I hear he’s burning other villages
With giant balls of fire
I don’t really mind that much, although
The service around here is dire

The worshippers need food
And no one cares
The worshippers need food
The worshippers need food
And He won’t answer our prayers
The worshippers need food

D
And I can’t run away
Em
I’d be burnt in his pot
(chords repeat)
I’d be another sacrifice
And the prayers would get hot
So I just sit and pray
And it’ll come as no surprise
That I would switch my faith
If the other guy gave me fries

Since

The worshippers need food
And no one cares
The worshippers need food

The worshippers need food
And He won’t answer our prayers
The worshippers need food

Am G
Worshippers need food
Am G
Worshippers need food.
Track Name: Party At Ric's House
E
Bring a friend, bring some beer
A E
You know what’s going on in Weir
G
And everyone will be there

E
Just make sure, you’ve got a card
A E
With some money, it isn’t hard
G
Or else expect a glare

D G
It’s a party at Ric’s house
E
Try not to make a mess
D G
It’s a party at Ric’s house
E
And that’s a lovely dress

(chords repeat)
Get so drunk that you’ll forget
What you did tonight, yet
You’ll still have a good time

That’s until, there’s Chocolate Rain
Playing in the lounge again
The decision wasn’t mine

It’s a party at Ric’s house
Please excuse the mess
It’s a party at Ric’s house
And there’s way too many guests

C
If you need Ric, don’t go too far
G
He’s hiding in his room
C
He peeks out every now and then
G
And the next occurrence is soon
C
I wouldn’t go in if I were you
G
We think he’s getting head

C
But in truth he’s just too scared
G
Of leaving his comfy bed

(chorus chords)
It’s a party at Ric’s house
Boy, what a mess
It’s a party at Ric’s house
It’s great, we must confess

It’s a part at Ric’s house
And he’ll clean up the mess
It’s a party at Ric’s house
And you all know the rest
Track Name: Geoff Says
G Am
Speech Night; Geoff gets up on stage
D7
Thinks that he’s so good
G Am
He tells some jokes, people laugh
D7 C
Like I knew they would

G
Oh well

Am
He says he’s going to stay a while
D7
I don’t want him to
G Am
He says that we’ve got a good thing going
D7 C
And it’s down to you


Then

A
Geoff says
Em
“It’s all your fault.”
A
Geoff says
Em
“It’s all your fault.”
A
Geoff says
Em
“It’s all your fault.”

G
Oh well

(chords repeat until end of song)
He’s really going for it now
He’s being such a pain
He says that we’re all damned to hell
I don’t need reminding again

Oh well

No one cares when he says
We’re worse than the Middle East
No one cares when he says
Our country’s falling to pieces

But then

Geoff says
“It’s all your fault.”
Geoff says
“It’s all your fault.”
Geoff says
“It’s all your fault.”

Again

(speech)
Democracy is a fragile thing!
We don’t want to end up like the Somalians
Or the Iraqis
If you don’t vote then it’s your fault
You can’t complain if you didn’t vote
I’m not saying vote for me
Just vote

Geoff says
“It’s all your fault.”
Geoff says
“It’s all your fault.”
Geoff says
“It’s all your fault.”

Not true

Geoff said
“It’s all your fault.”
Geoff said
“It’s all your fault.”
Geoff said
“It’s all your fault.”

Screw you.
