Our Love is a Different Kind of Thing,  

Words and Music by Tony Chapman ©1997 



dressed in silk and satin with the 

E (maybe A drone) 

co-operative backing of the 

D                                      A         E

Unlimited company we keep


with a rabbit's foot and heather, with a 


hammer and a feather we 

D                      E                               A        (D,  A,)

walk together proudly down the street

                 C#m        F#m          D                      A

some say love goes out when poverty comes in 

       D                   E                            A  

but our love is a different kind of thing



they say its not worth trying but 

birth comes after dying so we 

step out like royalty on the town


with your home made turquoise skirt and my 

second hand white shirt, apple 

blossom like confetti flutters down


some say "lovers leap" and "suicide's a sin" so our 

love is a different kind of thing


    E7     A              E7              A             E7           A 

to celebrate our beauty we stand by Nelson's column 

                 D2                          E                          A

while the tourists take our photos for their friends

           E7         A       E7                 A             E7            A

we're famous for a moment the cameras click and whirr 

                  D2                                                 Esus4

behind us Houses of Parliament and Big Ben


at the end of every day 

sunset colours play 

kaleidoscopes in your golden hair


and we cuddle up so warm there's no 

television on we've got 

other kinds of things we like to share


some say "true loves song, the mute swan sings" 

but our love is a different kind of thing 


so we'll take our loving cup and fill it to the brim

because our love is a different kind of thing.
