This is a very strange song to say the least.  Befroe I watched the movie, I knew that 
has lots of chord changes, but there was more.  The beginning  is straightforward enough, 
the end is really complicated that even I can't put the chords and lyrics in correctly.

The chords and lyrics are based on the 2004 version of 'Phantom of the Oprah' by John Schumacher.

Intro from drumroll: D A/C# Bm Bm/A G 
D/A A A7


FIRMIN
 Gm
"Mys-tery after gala night,"
it says, "Mys-tery of soprano's flight!"
 Fm
"Mys-tified all the papers say,
we are mys-tified - we suspect foul play!"
Em             Am
Bad news on so-prano scene -
G                         C
first Carlotta, now Chris-tine!
Bm                            Em
Still, at least the seats get sold
Dm                           G7
gossip's worth its weight in gold . . .

C             G/B   Am      Am/G
What a way to run a business!
F                Dm     G
Spare me these unending trials!
          C          G/B
Half your cast disap-pears,
        Am          Fm7
but the crowd still cheers!
C/G
O-pera!
   G
To hell with Gluck and Handel -
       G7                               Gm
Have a scandal and you'll sure to have a hit!

ANDRE
Gm
Damnable!
Will they all walk out?
This is damnable!

FIRMIN
Andre, please don't shout . . .
         Fm
It's pub-licity! And the take is vast!
Free publicity!

ANDRE
But we have no cast . . .

FIRMIN
    Em
But Andre,
         Am
have you seen the queue?
(Timing is slightly off, strum softly)

       G             F      G   Dm/F C
(Spoken)Oh, it seems you've got one  too . . .

ANDRE
         D            A/C#     Bm Bm/A
"Dear... Andre what a charming gala!
      G             Em         A
Chris-tine was in a word, 'sub-lime'!
        D         D/C#          Bm    Gm7
We were hardly be-reft when Car-lotta left -
D/A               A
On that note, the diva's a disaster
         A7                                   D
must you cast her when you see she's past her prime?"

FIRMIN
      D              D/C#     Bm    Bm/A
"Dear Firmin, just a brief re-minder:
           G          Em       A
(Spoken)my salary has not been paid.
        D           D/C#         Bm      Gm7
Send it care of the ghost, by re-turn of post.
         D/A
(Spoken) P.T.O.:
A
No-one likes a debtor,
        A7
so it's better if my orders are obeyed!"

Bb7 (with drumroll)

FIRMIN/ANDRE
Eb                 Bb/D    Cm       Cm/Bb
Who would have the gall to send this?
Ab             Fm      Bb
Someone with a puerile brain!

FIRMIN
          Eb             Bb/D
These are both signed "O.G." . . .

ANDRE
        Cm      Abm7
Who the hell is he?

BOTH
Eb/C
Opera ghost!

FIRMIN
     Bb
It's nothing short of shocking!

ANDRE
He is mocking our position!

FIRMIN
   Bb7
In addition he wants money!

ANDRE

What a funny admiration

BOTH
to expect a large retainer!
Nothing plainer -
                      Dm
he is clearly quite insane!

(Strum loudly and rapidly)
(RAOUL
      Dm
Where is she?)

ANDRE
You mean Carlotta?

RAOUL
I mean Miss Daae -
where is she?

FIRMIN
Well, how should we know?

RAOUL
I want an answer -
  Cm7
I take it that you sent me this note?

FIRMIN
What's all this nonsense?

ANDRE
   Dm
Of course not!

FIRMIN
Don't look at us!

RAOUL
She's not with you, then?

FIRMIN
   Dm
Of course not!

ANDRE
We're in the dark . . .

RAOUL
Monsieur, don't argue -
Cm7
Isn't this the letter you wrote?

FIRMIN
                                              NC
And what is it, that we're meant to have wrote?
(Realizing his mistake)

(Spoken) Ugh, Written !

ANDRE (Spoken)
(strum once softly and ring)
B
"Do not fear for Miss Daae.
    A                      G
The Angel of Music has her under his wing.
                Fm
Make no attempt to see her again."

RAOUL (Spoken)
If you didn't write it, who did?

(Strum loudly and rapidly)

CARLOTTA
      Bbm
Where is he?

(ANDRE
Ah, welcome back!)

CARLOTTA
Your precious patron -
where is he?

RAOUL
What is it now?

CARLOTTA
I have your letter -
  Bm7
a letter which I rather resent!

FIRMIN
And did you send it?

RAOUL
   Bbm
Of course not!

ANDRE (spoken)
As if he would!

CARLOTTA
You didn't send it?

RAOUL
   Bbm
Of course not!

FIRMIN (spoken)
What's going on . . .?

CARLOTTA
You dare to tell me,
     Bm
that this is not the letter you sent?

RAOUL
And what is it that I'm
meant to have sent?

RAOUL(Spoken)
(strum once softly and ring)
                  G
"Your days at the Opera Populaire are numbered.
                       Bm
Christine Daae will be singing on your behalf tonight.
Be prepared for a great misfortune,
Am                                  Gm
should you attempt to take her place."

ANDRE/FIRMIN
F            C/E       Dm      Dm/A
Far too many notes for my taste -
    Bb           Gm          C
and most of them about Chris-tine!
          F              F/C
All we've heard since we came
        Dm      Ebm (ring)
is Miss Da-ae's name . . .

GIRY
Dm (strum once softly and stop immediately)
Miss Daae has returned.

FIRMIN
I hope no worse for wear
   F
as far as we're concerned.

ANDRE
                       Eb
Where precisely is she now?

GIRY
I thought it best that she was alone . . .

MEG
           Dm
She needed rest.

RAOUL
      Gm
May I see her?

GIRY
                           Dm
No, monsieur, she will see no-one.

CARLOTTA & PIANGI
Bb
Will she sing?
Will she sing?

GIRY
Dm
Here, I have a note . . .

RAOUL/CARLOTTA/ANDRE
NC
Let me see it!

FIRMIN (Spoken)
Please!

(Opens the letter and reads.
The PHANTOM'S voice gradually takes over)
 NC
"Gentlemen, I have now sent you several notes of the
most amiable nature, detailing how MY theatre is to be
run. You have not followed my instructions.
I shall give you one last chance . . ."

PHANTOM'S VOICE (taking over)

. . . Christine Daae has returned to you,
and I am anxious her career should progress.
In the new production of "Il Muto",
you will therefore cast Carlotta as the Pageboy,
and put Miss Daae in the role of Countess.
    Ab
The role which Miss Daae plays calls for charm and appeal.
The role of the Pageboy is silent -
which makes my casting, in a word . . . ideal.
Spoken
NC
I shall watch the performance from my normal seat in
Box Five, which will be kept empty for me.  Should
these commands be ignored, a disaster beyond your
imagination will occur.
I remain, Gentlemen, Your obedient servant, O.G."

CARLOTTA
Dm
Christine!

ANDRE
Whatever next . . .?

CARLOTTA
It's all a ploy to help Christine!

FIRMIN
This is insane . . .

CARLOTTA
I know who sent this:
    Cm
The Vicomte - her lover!

RAOUL
Indeed?
Can you believe this?

ANDRE
    Dm
Sig-nora!

CARLOTTA
O traditori!

FIRMIN
This is a joke!

ANDRE
This changes nothing!

CARLOTTA
O mentitori!

FIRMIN
Signora!

ANDRE
You are our star!

FIRMIN
And always will be!

ANDRE
    Cm
Sig-nora . . .

FIRMIN
The man is mad!

ANDRE
We don't take orders!

FIRMIN
     Cm (strum once and stop)
Miss Daae will be playing the Pageboy-
NC
the silent role . . .

ANDRE/FIRMIN
    Cm
Car-lotta will be playing the lead!

CARLOTTA
Gm                        G
It's useless trying to ap-pease me!
                           F
You're only saying this to please me!
CARLOTTA
Signori, e vero?
CARLOTTA& PIANGI
    Eb
Non, non, non voglio udire !
Lasciatemi morire!
        Db
O padre mio!
Dio!

GIRY
    Db
Who scorn his word,
   Ab
be-ware to those . . .

(CARLOTTA
You have reviled me!)

GIRY
    Dm
The angel sees,
    C
the angel knows . . .

CARLOTTA
           Am
You have rebu-u-uked me!

ANDRE/FIRMIN
         D
Signora, pardon us . . .

CARLOTTA
            Am
You have re-pla-a-aced me!

ANDRE/FIRMIN
Please, Signora, we beseech you . . .

GIRY
     Eb                  D             Bb Ab
This hour shall see your darkest fears . . .

MEG/RAOUL
I must see her . . .

CARLOTTA
Abbandonata!
Deseredata!
O, sventurata!

GIRY
The angel knows,
the angel hears . . .

RAOUL
Where did she go . . .?

CARLOTTA
Abbandonata!
Disgraziata!

ANDRE/FIRMIN

Signora, sing for us!
Don't be a martyr . . .

RAOUL/GIRY/MEG
Em
What new surprises lie in store . . .?

ANDRE/FIRMIN/CHARLOTTA
    C
Our star . . .!
