Welcome to the Double Dare UK tabs pages. We are actually a live pub band performing around Horsham, Sussex, but I have published some of my 600 song tabs on this site for sharing amongst the music community. If you want to copy tabs, simply cut and paste the words off the page and straight into WORD or NOTEPAD. I have worked carefully on many of these TABS to make sure that the chords are shown directly over the words, so the chord change corresponds exactly to the place where you are singing. That means you can play the whole songs straight off the paperwork without having to think about the structure of the song at all. I hope you enjoy these CHORDS, and please check out the many more we have on the SONGS page. Check out my band on the rest of the website too if you are interested...



              The Sundays

              I Kicked a Boy

 

       Verse 1:

 

       When the weather's fine, when it's sunny outside

 

       Think about the time I kicked a boy 'til he cried

 

       Oh, I could've been wrong, but I don't think I was

 

       He was such a child

 

 

       Verse 2:

       When I am alone, I remember so well

       How merrily I tripped a boy so he fell

       And I could've been wrong, but I don't think I was

       He was totally wild

 

       And I've been wondering lately

       Just who's gonna save me

 

       Now I have a cold, and no story to tell

       And I'd marry you but I'm so unwell

       And although I could've been wrong

       Well I don't think I was

       He was totally wild

 

       And I've been wondering lately

       Just who's gonna save me

       You just should've been [warned/wise]

       [oh/our] hysterical child

       Where'd you learn to do that

Measurements of time

====================

'  = 1/32

^  = 1/16

.  = 1/8

!  = 1/4

o/ = half note

o  = whole note

 

Other notation

==============

 

a+b (where a and b are measurements of time) =

   add 'a' plus 'b' more time on that note

 

(e.g.)  !+. means a quarter note + an eighth of a note time

 

******************

 

.__. = means that the previous note connects over

       (in other words, don't play the other note)

 

******************

 

u : strum up

d : strum down
