    A                                                                   D

1.      We should spend the night in a small hotel like this,

      E

    drinking champagne in it.

A                                                                                D

    We could drive your car through the east end streets to the city

             E

    and still make a day of it.

       D                                  A

    Take all I have, I've no secrets left to steal !

         D                                           A                         E

    What would you give me for a trip behind your steering wheel ?

 

     A                     F#m

I need high heels just to stand up,

            D

got to carry some stairs to get near enough.

      A                              F#m

I need some wheels to move you around,

         D

I've borrowed some tools to chisel you down.

Em

Tie me up and I'll confess !

2.     And it won't last for long, better do your worst

                       E

    while I'll forgive you of anything !

A                                                                           D

    Oh, you're so rehearsed 'cos some wise guy built you pretty,

           E

    so you'd get away with it.
