Cheap Trick

E--0-0-2-0-3-0-2-0-3-0-2-0-3-0-2--   play 12 times

 you're on top of the world you're on
 top of the world and you can't get any higher
 on top of the world on top of the world tonight

E --------------5-|

 It wasn't easy it was hard as hell
 You didn't get luck in a wishing well
 You never worked so hard had so much pain wouldn't change
 for anything    

second verse
Learned love from a movie screen
He was tough she was wild at fifteen
Hated school and had no dreams
Wasn't going very far

third verse
 then he got religion and she got a job
 It's on her back it's in his job
 And it costs lots of money money oh

intro four times


fourth verse
Break down nearly every day
Should'a know I couldn't get away
Got lucky with the girl next door
she was lonely and didn't care

fifth verse
She was young she was dark she was fair
Wrapped herself around you with her stare
You'd explode if she touched you there
touched you there touched you there

third verse

chorus twice

outro: repeat to fade
 Can you hear me
 Can you show me
 You're on top of the world tonight
