VERSE 1:

EIt’s the A♭mfinal +A6night
And they Emaj7still can’t E7get it Amaj7right
The Emovement on the stage was F#m7so slow
They’re A♭m7calling it the E7Stop and F#m7Go ShowC

 
VERSE 2:

EIs there A♭mmuch apA6peal
When you Ecan’t beE7lieve it’s Amaj7real
The Emusic was a little F#m7shaky
The A♭m7scenery, a E7little+ F#m7flaky
The Eaudience surprised themF#m7selves with
The A♭m7strength of the aE7buse they F#m7handed

VERSE 3:

EAnd the A♭mradio +A6play
Leaves you Emaj7angry +E7for a Amaj7day
EWritten like a first conF#m7fession
You A♭m7ponder on this E7strange proF#m7fession+C

 
VERSE 4:

EAs the A♭msands will A6shift
TheatreEland is E7on the Amaj7drift
EPaddle round the bend to F#m7nowhere
A♭m7Ratty and his E7friends will F#m7be there
EGiven up for good and F#m7hounded
A♭m7Given up for E7good and F#m7bounded
