Sound of the underground    (video)

 

††††† Dm

1. Disco dancing with the lights down low,

††††† Dm

††† beats are pumping on the stereo.

††† Dm

††† Neighbours banging on the bathroom wall,

††††† †††††††††††Dm

††† sayin, 'crank the bass, I gotta get some more'.

 

Dm

†† Water's running in the wrong direction,

A

††† got a feeling it's a mixed-up sign.

Dm

††† I can see it in my own reflection,

A†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Dm

††† something funny's going on inside my mind.

 

††† I don't know what is pushing me higher,

A

††† it's the static from the floor below.

Dm

††† Then its drops and catches like fire,

A†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Dm

††† it's the sound I, it's the sound I know.

 

†††††††††† Dm

It's the sound of the underground,

††††††† Bb

the beat of the drum goes round and around.

Dm

In to the overflow,

†††††††††††††††† Dm

where the girls get down to the sound of the radio.

Dm

Out to the electric night,

††††††††††††††††† Bb

where the bass line jumps in the backstreet light.

†††††††† Dm

The beat goes around and round,

††††††††††† Dm††††††††††† †††††††††††††††Bb†††††††††††††††††††††††† ††Dm

itís the sound of the under, sound of the underground.

 

†††††† Dm

2. Chain reaction running through my veins,

†††† Dm

††† pumps the bass line up into my brain.

††††††† Dm

††† Screws my mind until I lose control,

†††† †††††††††††††††††††††††Dm

††† and when the building rocks I know itís got my soul.

 

Dm
