From: Starla Iha
Subject: 4st7lb TAB MSP

Artist: Manic Street Preachers
Song:4st 7lb
Album: The Holy Bible

This (if you hadn't already guessed) is a song Richey wrote about anorexia.
It sound's really good on acoustic, but then again that's what it was
Written for.

Bye-bye!

Rosie :)

The riff below is repeated quite often throughout the song.
Listen to the record to find the exact times when the chords
Start.
E--------------------------------------------------------|
B--------------------------------------------------------|
D--------------------------------------------------------|
G---------3-3---------3-3-------------2-2--------2-2-----|
A-----1-1---------1-1------1-0----1-1--------1-1-----1-0-|
E-3-3--------3-3---------3----3-3--------3-3--------3----|

I think that the chords for the chorus are C- 032010
And D- XX0232

Hope this helps!!

Lyrics
------
Verse
=====
Days since I last pissed
Cheeks sunkend and despaired
So gorgeous sunk to six stone
Lose my only remaining home
See my third rib appear
A week later all my flesh disappear
Stretching taut, cling-film on bone
I'm getting better
Karen says I've reached my target weight
Kate and Emma Kristin know it's fake
Problem is diet's not a big enough word

Chorus
======
I wanna be so skinny that I rot from view
I want to walk in the snow
And not leave a footprint
I want to walk in the snow
And not soil its purity

Verse
=====
Stomach collapsed at five
Lift up my skirt my sex is gone
Naked and lovely at 5st.2
May I bud and never flower
My vision's getting blurred
But I can see my ribs and I feel fine
My hands are trembling stalks
And I can feel my breasts are sinking
Mother trys to choke me with roast beef
And sits savouring her sole ryvitta
That's the way you're built my father said
But I can change, my cocoon shedding

Chorus
======
I wanna be so skinny that I rot from view
I want to walk in the snow
And not leave a footprint
I want to walk in the snow
And not soil its purity

Verse
=====
Kate and Kristin and Kit Kat
All things I like looking at
Too weak to fuss, too weak to die
Choice is skeletal in everybody's life
I choose my choice, I starve to frenzy
Hunger soon passes and sickness soon tires
Legs bend, stockinged I am Twiggy
And I don't mind the horror that surrounds me
Self-worth scatters, self-esteem's a bore
I long since moved to a higher plateau
This discipline's so rare so please applaud
Just look at the fat scum who pamper me so
Yeh 4st.7, an epilogue of youth
Such beautiful dignity in self-abuse
I've finally come to understand life
Through staring blankly at my navel.
