Released on February 9th 2004, "Jacqueline" is the opening track from Franz
Ferdinand's debut homonym album. The song's intro goes in crescendo to
reach bright and rhythmic verses. The harmonies walk around 3 chords, making 
it a very easy song.

Jacqueline was seventeen
                      Ab                    Bb
Working on a desk when Ivor peered above a spectacle

Forgot that he had wrecked a girl
Cm               Ab                           Bb
 Sometimes these eyes forget the face they're peering from

When the face they peer upon
G                            Cm
 Well, you know that face as I do
                 Ab
And how in the return of the gaze
          Bb
She can return you the face
              Cm
That you are staring from
