VERSE 1:

When Bm7my taxi arDrives
Say that I’m Adead
Having swallowed my Em7leg
And Bm7come to the bedroom aDgain
Let us beAgin
Shrinking the B♭maj7walls
And counting our F#m7ears
In sweat, as we G6crawl
Bm7Get me to the G6wilder+G6ness on Atime
Bm7++D6++E
Bm7++Fdim++G

VERSE 2:

When Bm7I look round your F#m7eyes
There’s a Bm7space at the G /Aside
Where ten more eyes could Gmaj7hide
And they’d Bm7squeal when they learned what I F#m7mean
Bm7Madame obsG /Acene
Sweating skulls Gmaj7clean
And my Bm7genuine Celticness Dshines – oops!
It just struck me Ablind
I’m such a spiritual Em7guy
Bm7Get me to the G6wilder+Bm7ness and
Em7Bury my leg in some F#m7bog
And Em7tell me all about right and F#m7wrong
And Em7tell me life is serious
And F#m7zip up your dress
And Bm7get me to the G6wilderBm7ness oAn time
