PARADISE BY THE DASHBOARD LIGHT

Meat Loaf

 D
 I remember every little thing
 G
As if it happened only yesterday
 A
 Parking by the lake
 GD
And there was not another car in sight
And I never had a girl
 G
Looking any better than you did
 A
And all the kids at school
 GD
They were wishing they were me that night
 DCD
And now our bodies are oh so close and tight
 DCD
It never felt so good, it never felt so right
 GDAD
And we're glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife
 GDAD
 Glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife
 GD
 C'mon, hold on tight
 GA
 C'mon, hold on tight
 GADAG
Though it's cold and lonely in the deep dark night
 DGAGD
I can see paradise by the dashboard light
GIRL:
 GADG
 Ain't no doubt about it we were doubly blessed
'Cause we were barely seventeen
 D
And we were barely dressed
BOTH:
 GAD
 Ain't no doubt about it
 GAD
 Baby got to go out and shout it
 GAD
 Ain't no doubt about it
 G
We were doubly blessed
BOY: 'Cause we were barely seventeen
 D
And we were barely dressed

 D
 Baby don'cha hear my heart
 G
You got it drowing out the radio
 A
I've been waiting so long
 GD
For you to come along and have some fun
And I gotta let you know
 G
No you're never gonna regret it
 AG
So open up your eyes, I got a big surprise
 A
It'll feel all right
 GAD
Well I wanna make you motor run
 DCD
And now our bodies are oh so close and tight
 DCD
It never felt so good, it never felt so right
 GDAD
And we're glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife
 GDAD
 Glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife
 GD
 C'mon, hold on tight
 GFA
 C'mon, hold on tight  
BOTH:
 GADAG
Though it's cold and lonely in the deep dark night
 GDBAG
I can see paradise by the dashboard light
 GDBGA
Though it's cold and lonely in the deep dark night
 DAD
I can see paradise by the dashboard light
 GAD
 AYou got to do what you can
 GAD
And letMother Nature do the rest
 GADG
 Ain't no doubt about it we were doubly blessed
'Cause we were barely
 A
 We're gonna go all the way tonight
We're gonna go all the way
And tonight's the night

RADIO BROADCAST:
 E
 OK, here we go, we got a real pressure cooker going here
Two down, nobody on, no score, bottom of the ninth
There's the wind-up, and there it is
A line shot up the middle, look at him go
This boy can really fly
He's rounding first and really turning it on now
He's not letting up at all, he's gonna try for second
The ball is bobbled out in the center
And here's the throw and what a throw
He's gonna slide in head first
Here he comes, he's out
No, wait, safe, safe at second base
This kid really makes things happen out there
Batter steps up to the plate
Here's the pitch, he's going
Amd what a jump he's got
He's trying for third
Here's the throw
It's in the dirt, safe a third
Holw cow, stolen base
He's taking a pretty big lead out there
Almost daring them to pick him off
The pitcher glances over, winds-up and it's bunted
Bunted down the third base line
The suicide squeeze is on
Here he comes, squeeze play, it's gonna be close
Here's the throw, here's the play at the plate
Holy cow, I think he's gonna make it

GIRL:

I couldn't take it any longer
Lord I was crazed
 C
And when the feeling came upon me
 F
Like a tidal wave
 C
I started swearing to my god
 G
And on my mother's grave
 FGC
That I would love you to the end of time
 FGC
I swore I would love you to the end of time
 GCGC
 So now I'm praying for the end of time
 FGC
To hurry up and arrive
 BAG
'Cause if I gotta spend another minute with you
 FG
I don't think that I can really survive
 F
I'll never break my promise or forget my vow
 CG
But God only knows what I can do right now
 CGC
I'm praying for the end of time
 GA
It's all that can ooh ooh
 CGC
 PRaying for the end of time
 FGC
So I can end my time with you
BOY:
 FCGC
It was long ago and it was far away,
 FCGC
And it was so much better than it is today.
GIRL:
It never felt so good, It never felt so right
And we were glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife.
