Verse 1

Em                                       G                 Em
 Hold that chrysalis in your palm,see it split and change
Em                                   G                  Em
 It won't do you any harm, it's just trying to rearrange
Em                                 G                  C
 It was born to live a day, now it flies up from your hand
C                                                          Em
 It's beautiful, it's the one they call your ever-loving man

Verse 2
 
Em                                              G                         Em
 Wolves have carried your babies away, oh your kids drip from their teeth
Em                                   G                         Em
 The nights are long and the day is bitter cold beyond belief
em                                              G                  C
 You spread yourself like a penitent upon the mad vibrating sand
C                                                         Em  G    
 And through your teeth arrange to meet your midnight man

Chorus 1

A                                     Em  G
 Everybody's coming round to my place
A                                     Em  G
 Everybody's coming round to my place
A
 Everybody's coming round, oh baby, don't you see
A                                     Em
 Everybody wanna be your midnight man

Verse 3

Em                                     G                  Em
 Don't disturb me as I sleep, treat me gently when I wake
Em                                  G                     Em
 Don't disturb me when I sleep even though your body aches
Em                              G                   C
 And even though your body aches to serve at his command
C                                                     Em
 Between the wars she still adores her ever-loving man

Verse 4

Em                              G                 Em                              
 Close your eyes, sleep in him, dream of your lost sons and daughters
Em                                     G                     Em
 Me, I'll raise up the dorsal fin, and glide up and down the waters
Em                                            G                 C
 I'll glide up and down the waters, then I'll walk upon the land
C                                                      Em  G
 And call the out, the ones who doubt your midnight man

 Everybody's coming round to my place

 Everybody's coming round, oh baby, don't you see

Em                        G                         Em     
 It's early in the morning and I don't know what to do
Em                               G                  Em  
 It's early in the morning and I can't believe it's true
Em                                   G          C 
 It's early in the morning and it's happening again
C                                                                  Em  G
 I called you once, I called you twice, ain't I your midnight man?
