Verse 1:

C                F                        G
 Pale, pubescent beasts, roam through the streets 
           Am           Dm7            F
And coffee-shops, their prey gather in herds 
                     Eb                      C#
Of stiff knee-length skirts, and white ankle-socks 
    C                       F                   G
But while they search for a mate, my type hiber-nate 
              Am        D7           F        C
In bedrooms a-bove, com-posing their songs of love 

Verse 2:

C               F                 G
 Young, uniform minds, in uniform lines 
            Am        Dm7                    F
And uniform ties, run round with trousers on fire 
                Eb                    C#
And signs of de-sire, they cannot dis-guise, 
      C             F                      G
While I try to find words, as light as the birds 
              Am       D7        F        C
That circle a-bove, to put in my songs of love 

Bridge 1:

Ab            Bb         C              Am
 Fate doesn't hang, on a wrong or right choice 
Ab          Bb            C            G
 Fortune de-pends, on the tone of your voice 

Verse 3:

   C                   F                 G
So sing while you have time, let the sun shine 
            Am
Down from a-bove 
    D7            F        C
And fill you with songs of love 

Solo:

C  F  G  Am, Dm7  F  Eb  C#
C  F  G  Am, D  F  C

Bridge 2:

Ab            Bb         C              Am
 Fate doesn't hang, on a wrong or right choice 
Ab          Bb            C            G
 Fortune de-pends, on the tone of your voice 

Verse 3:

         C                   F                  G
So let's sing while we still can, while the sun hangs 
          Am   D         F        Am  C   
High up a-bove Wonderful songs of lo..ove, 
D7         F     G  C
 Beautiful songs of love 

End on C
