Verse 1:
E (w/intro riff)
It's a hard life but you play it for laughs
It's a cold-hearted business, keep [C#m]away from the draft
And your f[F#m]ingers and your throat get s[A]ore
But they're [F#m]out there beggin' for some m[A]ore[B]
Chorus:
So play [E]on (while the [A/E]lights shine a[F#7]round your h[B]ead)
Play [G#]on (every n[C#m]ight in a [G#7]different [C#m]bed)
And the n[A]ight[Asus2]s go [A]on [F#m/B] and...
[1, 3: E (intro riff, 2X)] 
[2: (to bridge)] 
[4: G#m A (to coda)] 
...on
Verse 2:
Take a break and find a place you can hide
'Cause tonight you're got to be a star personified
You're rushin' round to get your plane
Then it's back in the bubble again
[repeat cborus] 
Bridge:
[C]Critics comin' 'cause you're Number One (Number One)
[Am]Play your hits and all the girls will come
(So play [Em]on) play on
