Subject: LIKE COCKATOOS by The Cure



Like Cockatoos

(words & music by Robert Smith, Simon Gallup, Laurence Tolhurst, Porl

Thompson, and Boris Williams)



Like many Cure songs, the there is really only one real riff for this song

with other cool stuff added in (like the string orchestrations at the end).

Anyway, the main (and intro) riff are these:




E --------------------||-------------|---------|-------------|-----------|

B ---------0----------||-------6-6---|---------|-------------|-----------|

G -------0---0--------||----5--5-5---|-3-3-----|-------------|-----------|

D -----3-------3------||-3--5--3-3---|-3-3-5-5-|--6-6--8-8-8-|-6--5--3-3-|

A ---3-----------3----||-3--3--------|-1-1-5-5-|--6-6--8-8-8-|-6--5--3-3-|

E -1---------------1--||-1-----------|-----3-3-|--4-4--6-6-6-|-4--3--1-1-|



The ever so cool lyrics are:


She walked out of her house

And looked around

At all the gardens that looked back at her house

(Like all the faces that quiz when you smile)


And he was standing at the corner

Where the road turned dark

A part of shiny wet

Like blood the rain fell black down on the street


And kissed his feet she fell

Her head an inch away from heaven

And her face pressed tight

And all around the night sang out like cockatoos


And in her head

A picture of a boy who left her loney in the rain

(And all around the night sang out like cockatoos)
