    SIXTEEN YEAR OLD DOOM (Michael Moorcock)

    Good ole' shuffle in 4/4 time

    [E7]She's 16 years old with a death rattle in hear throat
    I said 16 years old with a death rattle in her throat
    She's[A] hoping to get bad[G] habits
    She's got[C] black lace round her coat
    She[A] thinks she's a[E7] fox, but she's[G] really a[A] rabbit
    Look[E7] out, here comes the stoat.
    She's got the Doom, She's got the Doom
    She shares a[A] room with her sister, she shares a[E7] room
    [A]All she's hoping [G]for is the[C] moon
    She's got the[E7] sweet, she's got the sweet
    She's got the[A] sweet little[C] 16 [G]Doom.[E7] Nice!
    She goes cruising in the evenings with a friend she knows from work
    Goes to the cafe on the corner, where she likes to flirt
    She [A] goes to the Fairground[G] and she shares her[C] dream
    And she[A] wonders if that[E7] dream can[G] ever be re[A]ality.[E7]
    Solo in E7
    [E7]She's got three friends and they all move arm in arm
    With four of them together how can they ever come to harm?
    She[A] giggles and she flutters and she[G] sniffs the filth rich [C]air
    Sniffs the[A] oil, the[E7] dirt, the[G] huck[A]ster at the[E7] fair. Hahahahahahaha
    [E7]She's got the Doom, She's got the Doom
    She shares a[A] room with her sister, she shares a [E7]room
    [A]All she's hoping[G] for is the[C] moon
    She's got the[E7] sweet, she's got the sweet
    She's got the[A] sweet little[C] 16[G] Doom. [E7]
    She's 16 years old with a death rattle in hear throat
    I said 16 years old with a death rattle in her throat
    She's hoping to get bad habits
    She's got black lace round her coat
    She thinks she's a fox, but she's really a rabbit
    Look out, look out, look out
    Here comes the stoat
    A&2&3&4&/C&2&3&4&/G&2&3&4&1&2&3&4&/
    [E7] STOATS!!

    "Stoats"??? Slang for a (type) of girl, like 'bird?
    Surely different from the Pythonian "A man with a stoat through his head.'

    This is the riff that is played during the ''she's hoping to get bad habits'' line: A-B-C#-D-E-F#-G-A-C Major

    The A Mixolydian scale! That G Natural insted of G#.

    Oops! I forgot the riff during the ''she shares a room with er sister'' line:

    A-C#-E-F#-G-F#-E-C#
