CADILLAC DREAMS
Gene Simmons, Vini Poncia

[Rhy. Fig 1]

[Rhy. Fig 2]
When I was seventeen, found out just what it means 
If you can get it free, it just ain't worth a damn 
When I heard the preacher say, don't throw your life away 
I got that message, and I wrote it on the wall 

[Rhy. Fig 3]
I don't want anybody tellin' me lies, no, I don't want your diamond ring 
'Cause you ain't got my size 

[Rhy. Fig 4 w/ End 1]
I want money, money, that's what I need, 
I got Cadillac dreams, please mister don'tcha take it from me 
[Rhy. Fig 4 w/ End 2 and Riff 1 (2x)]
Give me money, money, more than I need, I got Cadillac dreams waitin' on me 

[Rhy. Fig 5]
Cadillac dreams, Cadillac dreams 

[Rhy. Fig 2 w/ Riff 2]
When I had the young boy blues, I paid some young boy dues 
I learned the hard way, there's a heartbreak every day 
Stone cold reality came crashing down on me 
[Riff 3]
Well life was hard on me, but I still don't give a damn 

[Rhy. Fig 3]
When I was seventeen I was an angry young man 
But I won't let just anybody tell me who I am 

[Rhy. Fig 4 w/ End 1]
I just want money, money, that's all I need 
I got Cadillac dreams, hey mister don'tcha take it from me 
[Rhy. Fig 4 w/ End 3 and Riff 1 (2x)]
Give me money, money, more than I need
These Cadillac dreams are waitin' on me 

[Rhy. Fig 6 w/ Riff 4]
Didn't have the time of day, till this dream was born 
You can't take that away, you can't take that away from me 

[Solo over Rhy. Fig 7]

[Rhy. Fig 8 (2x) w/ Rhy. Fig 9]
Yeah, now dig this...

[Rhy. Fig 8 (4x) w/ Rhy. Fig 10]
When I was seventeen, there was this beauty queen 
Checked in a one room suite, the back seat of my car 

[Rhy. Fig 3]
When you want all the best things money can buy 
You gotta reach down inside of you, to reach up to the sky 

[Rhy. Fig 4 w/ End 1 and Rhy. Fig 11]
Yeah, I want money, money, that's all I need 
I got Cadillac dreams, hey mister you can't take that from me 
[Rhy. Fig 4 w/ End 2 and Rhy. Fig 11 and Riff 1 (2x)]
I want money, money, more than I need
I got Cadillac dreams waitin' on me 

[Rhy. Fig 4 w/ End 1 and Rhy. Fig 11 and Riff 1 (2x)]
Money, money, that's what I need 
We're drivin' in my Chevy with my Cadillac dreams 
[Rhy. Fig 4 w/ End 1 and Rhy. Fig 11 and Riff 1 (2x)]
Someday, one day, just you and me 
We'll ride inside these Cadillac dreams 

[Rhy. Fig 4 w/ End 1 and Rhy. Fig 11 and Riff 1 (2x)]
[Rhy. Fig 4 w/ End 1 and Rhy. Fig 11 and Riff 1 (2x)]
