Dressing Up  The Cure

Subject: DRESSING UP by The Cure
Dressing Up
(words & music by Robert Smith)
I love this song, any time I hear it, I think of my friend Annita for some
reason (I have only known her a couple months). Anyway, I am transcribing
the -Paris- version of the song. It really does not make that much of a
difference since I have heard the original and it sounds exactly like
the -Paris- version. I broke the song up into two riffs like these:
Riff 1 (the tantalizing keyboard riff):
[Bm] [C] [D] [E5] [Em] 
 
 E --------2-3-2---------- ------2-3-2------- -------------- --------------
 B ----0-3-------3-0-0-0-- --0-3-------3-0--- -------------- --------------
 G ----------------------- ------------------ -------------- --------------
 D ----------------------- ------------------ ---2---0--2--- -5--2--0--2---
 A -2--------------------- ------------------ -------------- ------------2-
 E ----------------------- ------------------ -0------------ -------------- 

Riff 2 (The spine-tingling duo notes):
[C] [Bm] [C] [Bm] 
 
 E ---3---2--3---5--- -2-------- ---3---2--3---5--- -2--------
 B ---5---3--5---7--- -3-------- ---5---3--5---7--- -3--------
 G ------------------ ---------- ------------------ ----------
 D ------------------ ---------- ------------------ ----------
 A ------------------ ---------- ------------------ ----------
 E ------------------ ---------- ------------------ ---------- 

Those are basically the riffs with the chords on top. The lyrics are:
Going under slowly
It never seems too late
Going under slow
Dressing up to kiss
Dressing up to touch your lips
(Dressing up, dressing up)
(Dressing up, dressing up)
I~m dressing up to dance all week
I~m dressing up to be all this
Dressing up to kiss
Dressing up to be all this
[Bb]I could eat your [A]face
Bb A (Riff 1)
I could eat all of you
Oh this night will never let me go...
[Bb]Going under slow[A]ly
[Bb]Never seems too [A]late
[Bb]Going under slow[A]ly
[G]There you [F]pick me up agai[Em]n...
I usually play the chords like this:
[E] [A] [D] [G] [B] [E]  
 
 -----------

Bm x 2 4 4 3 2
C x 3 5 5 5 x
D x 5 7 7 7 x
E5 x 7 9 9 x x
Em 0 2 2 0 0 0
Bb 6 8 8 7 x x
A 5 7 7 6 x x
G 3 2 0 0 3 3
[F] [1] [3] [3] [2] [1] [1]  
(And that is all for now- Adios)
