Intro: E B Dbm A

Verse:
E                                B       
Weekends in bed, no scramble eggs, or bacon
                  Dbm     A
I just have time for you    Oohoo
E                                   B                      
Backs on the grass, heads in the clouds, we closed our eyes
         Dbm        A
Enjoy the view     Oohoo
B                    A
We don't wanna hear 
                        B      
The real world passing by 
                    A
Saying that we're crazy

Chorus:
        E                         B
We spend all our time lying side by side
           Dbm
Getting nowhere, it's really something
       A
Getting busy doing nothing

        E                         B
We spend all our time running for our lives
           Dbm
Getting nowhere, it's really something
       A
Getting busy, doing nothing.

Verse:
E                                B       
No magazines or DVD's we both got
                  Dbm       A
Better things to do
E
I'll hold your hand
B
Or shall we dance together
  Dbm        A
It's so hard to choose
B                    A
Every time we hear 
                        B
The whole world rush by
A
I know that we're not crazy

Chorus:
        E                         B
We spend all our time lying side by side
           Dbm
Getting nowhere, it's really something
       A
Getting busy doing nothing
        E                         B
We spend all our time running for our lives
           Dbm
Getting nowhere, it's really something
       A
Getting busy, doing nothing.

Bridge:
E
Should be working hard
B
Instead of lying here naked
                  Dbm       A
Phone rings but I wont take it
E
Cos you only get one life... only get one life

Chorus:
        E                         B
We spend all our time lying side by side
           Dbm
Getting nowhere, it's really something
       A
Getting busy doing nothing
        E                         B
We spend all our time running for our lives
           Dbm
Getting nowhere, it's really something
       A
Getting busy, doing nothing.

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
