Verse 1:

C                F
 Pale, pubescent beasts,
                 G                  Am
Roam through the streets and coffee-shops.
      Dm7            F
Their prey gather in herds,
                     D#                     C#
Of stiff knee-length skirts and white ankle-socks.
    C                       Am
But while they search for a mate,
              G                   Am
My type hiber-nate, in bedrooms a-bove,
    D7           F     G  C
Com-posing their songs of love.

Verse 2:

C               F
 Young, uniform minds,
           G                 Am
In uniform lines and uniform ties.
    Dm7                     F
Run round, with trousers on fire,
                D#                   C#
And signs of de-sire they cannot dis-guise,
      C              F
While I, try to find words,
                G                    Am
As light as the birds, that circle a-bove,
   D7        F     G  C
To put in my songs of love.

Bridge 1:

G#            A#        C               Am
 Fate doesn't hang on a wrong, or right choice.
G#          A#           C             G
 Fortune de-pends on the tone, of your voice.

Verse 3:

   C                    F
So sing while, you have time,
            G                  Am
Let the sun shine, down from a-bove;
    D7            F     G  C
And fill you with songs of love.

Solo:

C  F  G  Am, Dm7  F  D#  C#
C  F  G  Am, D7  F  G  C

Bridge 2:

G#            A#        C               Am
 Fate doesn't hang on a wrong, or right choice.
G#          A#           C             G
 Fortune de-pends on the tone, of your voice.

Verse 3:

         C                    F
So let's sing, while we still can,
              G                Am
While the sun hangs, high up a-bove.
D          F        Am   C
 Wonderful songs of lo...ove,
D7         F     G  C
 Beautiful songs of love.
