Chords:

Verse:
Em                D           Em      D
Sometimes I don’t even move a muscle
Em            D            Em     D
Baby when you lie awake at night
Em                    D                 Em      D
I think I’ve got nine lives in these corpuscles
Em                       D                    Em     D
Cause girl, you know sometimes I don’t think right

Pre-Chorus:
A                     G
I hear voices in the hall
                               A
I wake up and it’s nothing at all
                           G
A hungry wolf, or an agry child

Chorus:
             Em  D
Or something wild
          Em  D
Something wild
          Em             D
Something wild - tell me love is
          Em             D
Something wild - tell me love is

Verse:
It’s not as if we could think that things were one way
And they would all just be that way right now
When I was a kid I thought that someday
I could tame this lion heart, some way, somehow

Pre-Chorus:
Now I’m hungry for the love
That doesn’t know what it’s dreamin’ of
Raging for the meek and mild

Chorus:
Like something wild
Something wild
Something wild - tell me love is
          Em             D         A
Something wild - tell me love is

Bridge:
A                                   G
There’s a hole where the wind blows through
                  A
And some curtains hung
                             G
But I can’t hid a thing from you
    B
You know where I come from

(Solo 4 bars)

Final Verse: (Lead only, no Rhythm)

Well I tried getting there under my own steam
’til my very last chance was shot
Now you’re under my skin like a submarine
I can feel you in my veins running hot
Now if it’s more than a new pair of jeans, a new car, some pocket money
And a place to go
Then we better get up and scream at the top of our lungs like it
Was gonna die if we didn’t make it so

Pre-Chorus:
I hear voices in the hall
I wake up and it’s nothing at all
An angry wolf, or a hungry child

Chorus:
Or something wild
Something wild
Something wild - tell me love is
Something wild - tell me love is

Outro:
          Em  D
Something wild
          Em  D
Something wild
          Em  D
Something wild
