PIANO INTRO

Note: Sorry but I’ve not been able to translate the opening piano but into a simple string of chords. If you’re able to, message me on FB.

VERSE 1

[A6] [G] [Fmaj7] [G6]

[A6] I know what you’re [C6] thinking
It’s [Fmaj7] “There’s that guy who tried to [G6] poison me”
[A6] Nonsense! I’m from your [C6] childhood
Always [Fmaj7] playing my piano on the [G6] TelefĂ­s

VERSE 2

[A6] Here he comes, see [C6] how he glows
[Fmaj7] Waited on by [G6] antelopes
[A6] Break for tea with the [C6] FSB
[Fmaj7] Mister Imperator will [G6] tinkle the keys

[Am7] Tonight, [D] tonight [D7/F#] (x4)

VERSE 3

[A6] Riding down to [C6] Sochi
[Fmaj7] Custom Steinway [G6] waits for me there
The [A6] ebony gleams and [C6] all is show
[Fmaj7] Biohazards [G6] have been stowed

[A6] Nerve gas spritzers – [C6] all aboard
[Fmaj7] Mister Imperator’s [G6] durable hoard

[Am7] Tonight, [D] tonight [D7/F#] (x4)

INTERLUDE

[Amaj7] Hall, plush and [A7] gilded
Draws you [A7] in
You have no [A7] skin
You have no [A7] skin
Shall we be [A7] gin?
You have no [A7] skin
Mood music, [A7] thin
The maestro [A7] grins
Where is my [A7] skin?
You have no [A7] skin
You have no [A7] skin

[A6] [G] [Fmaj7] [G6] (x2)

OUTRO

[A6] I’ve got a song you know [C6] [Fmaj7] Come on, come on let’s go [G6] (x4)
