 EmAmEm
    There's a man who leads a life of danger
 EmB7
    To everyone he meets, he stays a stranger
 EmAm
    With every move he makes, another chance he takes
 EmAmEm
    Odds are he won't live to see tomorrow
Chorus:
 BmEmBmEm
    Secret   agent man, secret   agent man
 CB7Em
    (They've) given you a number and taken 'way your name     (Intro riff)
Verse 2:
 EmAmEm
    Beware of pretty faces that you find
 EmB7
    A pretty face can hide an evil mind
 EmAm
    Ah, be carefull what you say, you'll give yourself away
 EmAmEm
    Odds are you won't live to see tomorrow
(Chorus)
(Solo over verse chords)
(Chorus)
Verse 3:
 EmAmEm
    Swinging on the Riviera one day 
 EmB7
    And then laying in the Bomb-bay a-la next day
 EmAm
    Ah know you let the wrong word slip, while kissing persuasive lips
 EmAmEm
    The odds are you won't live to see tomorrow
(Chorus)
 Em
    Secret a-a-a agent man.

A pretty face can hide an evil mind
Don't let the wrong word slip
While kissing persuasive lips
Or odds are you won't live to see tomorrow

Swinging on the Riviera one day
Lying on some balmy island next day
Be careful what you say
Or you'll give yourself away
Odds are you won't live to see tomorrow
