[Verse 1]
     Em7                   Em7
You live your life in the songs you hear...
          Em7               Em7

    Em7                       Em7
And when a young girl doesn't have any friends,
          Em7                 Em7
That's a really nice place to go,

   Folks hoping you'd turn out cool,     but they had to take you out of school,

You're a little touched, you know,

[Verse 2]
 Em7                   Em7
Lovers appear in your room each night,
          Em7                  Em7
And they whirl you across the floor,

          Em7           Em7
But they always seem to fade away,
           Em7                 Em7
When your Daddy knocks on the door,
                            e|--0-----------------|

'Cause he's been peeking in Angie's room at night,

Through her window blind,

[Bridge]
        (Em7)
When he walks in her room, he feels confused, like he walked into a play,
        (Em7)
And the music's so loud, it spins him around, till his soul has lost it's way,
Em F#m  G *
            And as she turns the volume down,
G * Ab  A
            He's getting smaller with the sound,
C                                        D
   It seems to pull him off the ground,     toward the radio he's bound,
  E
Never to be found---------!
