  C (changing bass) F                 C         ^----------^
                                                      syncopate sometimes
                                                        (sometimes not)
[Play this throughout the verses.]

C (2 bars)
Mayfair strange in the morning light
F (2 bars)
Mayfair strange in a summer night
C (2 bars)
Mayfair strangest in the afternoon
C (2 bars Instrumental)
Mayfair stretching far above
Full of fame but lacking love
Could it be we see the Mayfair moon?

Mayfair strange across the park
In the day or in the dark
There's no need to walk or even run
Mayfair faces clean and nice
But beauty here is cold as ice
Could it be we see the Mayfair sun?


[Second theme:-]

E --------|--------|
B 1-1-1-1-|1-1-0-0-|
G 0-0-0-0-|0-0-0-0-|
D --------|--------|
A 3-3-0-0-|--------|
E --------|4-4-3-3-|

  C (changing bass)

[For every line play these two bars.]

Mayfair strange at every hour
Hidden frowns with mystic power
Starry heights and golden thrown
Down below you're on your own

[Theme one:]

Mayfair strange for passers by
Sights of wonder for the eye
Could it be that they'll pass by again?
Mayfair calling far and near
For even trees are wealthy here
Could it be we hear the Mayfair rain?
