    G               C9/G G    G        C9/G G
The water's getting closer
    G              C9/G G     G        C9/G G
Better ring up the grocer
    G           C9/G G        G        C9/G G
Stack up the potatoes
                      D              C
Oh, Jack are you ever coming back
                   G    C9/G G
Will your operatic soul turn black?

D
Keep me turning, oh keep me on
C
Keep me burning, for your sun
D
Keep me turning
                            G
Don't you leave me till the very last

D
Keep me turning, I'm hagning on
C
Stop me yearning, I've had enough
D
Keep me turning
                   C   C     G
While I hand in my backstage pass

Children are smiling
Parents are wining
Bow tie tying
For the big day ahead real soon
Is there really gonna be no room

I've got a ticket
Just gotta past the picket
They say that the trick is to walk in backwards
Like your walking out
I guess the lord's wearing glasses now

Keep me turning, Oh keep me on
Keep me burning, For your sun
Keep me turning
Don't you leave me till the very last

Keep me turning, I'm hagning on
Stop me yearning, I've had enough
Keep me turning
While I hand in my backstage pass
