                             Verse:
------

 Eb bass & guitar riffs
You could have a steam train
Eb Db/Eb, Eb Db/Eb
If you'd just lay down your tracks
 Ab/EbEbDb/EbEb
                                     You could have an aero-plane flying
 Db/EbAb/EbEbDb/EbEbDb/Eb
                                      If you'd bring your blue skies back
 Ab/EbEbDb/EbEb
                                     All you do is call me
 Db/EbCm
                  I'll be anything you need
Eb Db/Eb, Eb
You could have a big dipper
Going up and down, all around the bends
You could have a bumper car, bumping
This amusement never ends

I want to be your sledgehammer
Cm Db, Fm
Why don't you call my name
Cm Db, Fm Fm Eb/F
Oh let me be your sledgehammer

Show me round your fruitcage
 EbAb/EbEb
                                    'Cos I will be your honey bee
 EbDb/EbEb

 EbAb/EbEb
                                where that fruit that is sweet as can be
 EbDb/EbEbcborus
I want to be your sledgehammer
Why don't you call my name
You'd better call me sledgehammer
Put your mind at rest

I get it right!
I've kicked the habit (kicked the habit, kicked the habit)

Won't you show for me (show for me)
And I will show for you (show for you)
Please, show for me (show for me), I will show for you
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, I do mean you
Only you
You've been coming through
I'm going to build that power
Build, build up that power,
I've been feeding the rhythm

Going to feel that power, yeah, build in you
Come on, come on, help me through

It's what we're doing, doing
