Pump It Up - Elvis Costello

[Bass Intro]
F# D# E D# B A F# E F# E

[Intro]
G G  G# G#  A A  B B  
B B B   Bb   A  x4  

[Verse]
B7
I've been on tender hooks, ending in dirty looks
Listening to the Muzak, thinking bout this n that
She said that's that, I don't wanna chitter chat
Turn it down a little bit or turn it down flat

[Chorus]
E7
Pump it up!
when you don't really need it
Pump it up!
until you can feel it

[Instrumental]
B B B   Bb   A  x4  

B7
Down in the pleasure centre, hell bent or heaven sent
listen to the propaganda, listen to the latest slander
There's nothing under hand that she wouldn't understand

[Chorus]
E7
Pump it up!
until you can feel it
Pump it up!
when you don't really need it

B B B   Bb   A x8
then land on E7
Hang on with the drum beat 4 measures

[Interlude]
B B B   Bb   A  x4  

B7
She's been a bad girl. She's like a chemical
Though you try to stop it, she's like a narcotic
You wanna torture her, you wanna talk to her
All the things you bought for her, putting up your temperature

[Chorus]
E7
Pump it up!
until you can feel it
Pump it up!
when you don't really need it

[Interlude]
B B B   Bb   A  x4  

E7
Out in the fashion show, down in the bargain bin
you put your passion out under the pressure pin

B7
Fall into submission, hit-and-run transmission
No use wishing now for any other sin

[Chorus]
E7
Pump it up!
until you can feel it
Pump it up!
when you don't really need it x3
Dont really need it! Dont really need it! Dont really need it! 

[Interlude]
B B B   Bb   A  
(and refrain to fade)

Nice! However I think the lyric is "all the things you bought for her could not get her temperature". (?)
