Riff A (3x)

Then 2nd verse (sim. to first)
Sky dive naked from an aeroplane
Or a lady with a body from outer space
My heart, my heart, kickstart my heart
Say I've got trouble in my eyes
I'm just lookin for another good time
My heart, my heart, kickstart my heart


[Chorus]

[Chorus, etc.]

Someday when I have more time I'll type in the lead parts and the outro
solo. For those who like improvising, it's trem picked A5 w/ A pentatonic
lead; B5 w/ B pent.; C5 w/ C pent.; D5 w/ D pent.; at 5th pos, 7th pos,
17th pos, and 17th pos for the leads, respectively.
