Do do do, do do do,

Do do do, do do do,

Do do do-oo.

Interlude:

Em E+ Em7 E+ (x2)

Verse 1:

 EmE+Em7E+
longed for you since I was born;
 EmE+Em7E+
woman sensi-tive and warm,
D7sus D7 D7sus D7, B7
And that you were.

 EmE+
With pride and strength,
 Em7E+
No one would test,
 EmE+Em7E+
But yet have femi-nine fi-nesse;
D7sus D7 D7sus D7, B7
And so much more.

Chorus 1:

 Cmaj7
You took me riding in your rocket;
Gave me a star.
But at a half a mile from heaven,
You dropped me back,
 Bm7b5B7susE7
Down to this cold, cold world.        

 Cmaj7
You took me riding in your rocket;
Gave me a star.
But at a half a mile from heaven,
You dropped me back,
 Bm7b5B7susE7
Down to this cold, cold world.        

Interlude:

Em E+ Em7 E+ (x2)

Verse 2:

 EmE+Em7E+
female Shakespeare of your time,
 EmE+Em7E+
With looks to blow Pi-casso's mind;
D7sus D7 D7sus D7, B7
You were the best.

 EmE+Em7E+
Your body moved with grace and song,
 EmE+Em7E+
Like sympho-nies by Bach or Brahms;
D7sus D7 D7sus D7, B7
Neverthe-less. Oh, oh;

Chorus 2:

 Cmaj7
You took me riding in your rocket;
Gave me a star.
But at a half a mile from heaven,
You dropped me back,
 Bm7b5B7susE7
Down to this cold, cold world.        

 Cmaj7
You took me riding in your rocket;
Gave me a star.
But at a half a mile from heaven,
You dropped me back,
 Bm7b5B7susE7
Down to this cold, cold world.        

Break:

 Am7D9
Do do do, do do do,

Do do do, do do do,

*KEY CHANGE*

Verse 3:

 FmF+Fm7F+
The passion burning in your heart,
 FmF+Fm7F+
Would make hell's fire seem like a spark;
D#7sus D#7 D#7sus D#7, C7
Where did it go?

 FmF+Fm7F+
Just why that you would over-night,
 FmF+Fm7F+
Turn love to stone as cold as ice,
D#7sus D#7 D#7sus D#7, C7
I'll never know.
