Verse 1:

F
 Baby, although I chose this lonely life,
              C
It seems it's strangling me now.
F
 All the wild men, big cigars, gigantic cars;
            C
They're all laughing at me now.

Chorus 1:

              Dm       Am
Oh, I've been used, oo-ooh,
                      Dm               Am
I've been taken for a fool, oh, what a fool.
                Dm       Am
I broke all the rules... ooh, yeah,
       Bb                    F
But I, won't let the show go on.

Verse 2:

F
 Baby, look there's an enormous crowd of people,
                C
And they're all after my blood.
  F
I wish maybe they'd tear down the walls of this theatre,
           C
And let me out, let me out.

Chorus 2:

                 Dm    Am
Oh, I've been so bli...ind, yeah,
            Dm                                Am
I've wasted time, wasted, wasted, oh, so much time.
               Dm         Am
Walking on the wire; high wire.
       Bb                    F
But I, won't let the show go on.

Chorus 3:

                 Dm                          Am
Oh, I've been so blind, oh yes, I've been so blind,
          Dm                   Am
Wasted my time, wasted so much time.
               Dm         Am
Walking on the wire; high wire.
       Bb                    F
But I, won't let the show go on.

 Baby, I wish you'd help me escape, and help me get away.
F                                                C
 Leave me outside my address; far away from this masquerade.

Chorus 4:

             Dm                   Am
I've been so used, I've been so a-bused,
            Dm                    Am
I've been a fool; I broke all the rules.
             Dm              Am
I've been so used, oh, and a-bused.
      Bb
But I won't let the show go... I said; I won't let the show,
                          F
Oh, won't let the show go on.
