C#                 B                        C#         B
Back in sixty, the weight of his work at de club (oh Geno)
    C#                       B              C#     B
??? Jimmy's my scene and the rocksteady rub    (oh Geno)
     B                         F#m
On a night when flowers didn't suit my tune,
        B                    F#m
After a week of longing, I'm back in school,
  B                 F#m
Geno is heading the crowd that night
         B                              F#m
A-just a-?????? his ??????? and keeping out of the fights.

A        E            B           F#
Academic inspiration, you gave me none,
A          E                B                F#
You were Michael the lover, the fighter that won,
A            E                   B               F#
But now just look at me as I'm a-looking down on you,
A          E                    B             F#
No I'm not being flash it's what I'm built to do.

C# B (x2)

C#                B                         C#         B
That man took the stage, his towel swinging high (oh Geno)
C#              B                     C#             B
This man was my bombers, my dexys, my highs      (oh Geno)
        B                              F#m
Oh, the crowd they all hailed you, and chanted your name,
               B                          F#m
But they never knew, like we knew, me and you were the same,
    B                         F#m
And now you're all over, your sound is so tame,
       B                                F#m
Brrrrrri, you fed me and plainly I'll remember your name,

A        E            B           F#
Academic inspiration, you gave me none,
A          E                B                F#
You were Michael the lover, the fighter that won,
A            E                   B               F#
But now just look at me as I'm a-looking down on you,
A          E                B                 F#
No I'm not being flash it's what I'm built to do.
