A Slow Song  Joe Jackson

[Am]Music has charms t[C]hey say               [Am]            [C]
[Am]But in some people's[Gm7] hands
[Fm7]It    [Dbmaj7]     becomes a[Fm7] savage be[Dbmaj7]ast             [Ab]
Can't they control it[Bb]
[Ab]Why don't they hold it back[Bb]         [C]
Verse 2:
You see my friend and me
Don't have an easy day
And at night we dance not fight
We need the energy
If not the sympathy

[Eb]But I'm bru[Fm7]talized by bass
[Eb]And terrorized by [Fm7]treble
[Eb]I'm open to change m[Fm7]y mood but
[Eb]I always get caught in [Fm7]the middle

[Dm7]And I get tired of DJ's

Why is it always what he plays

I'm gonna push right through

I'm gonna tell him too

Tell him to play us
C Am Fm7, A#, A, G
Play us a slow song (4 times. On the fourth do not play the G)

Verse 3:
It's late- I'm winding down
Am I the only one
To want a strong and silent sound
To pick me up and undress me
Lay me down and caress me

Verse 4:
I feel your touch my hand
And whisper in my ear
Ask me how I'm feeling now
And I want to get near you
But I can't even hear you

Bridge 2:
But this is a fine romance
If we have to be so demanding
We need just one more dance to
Leave here with an understanding

Repeat Chorus

Ab, Bb (4 times)
Repeat Chorus:

End with:
C, Am
