[Verse 1]
E5                                         A   G [ E5 ]
 Can I get you to give me a minute of your time
E5                            A B
 Can I get you to slip me the answer
E5                                         A
 Can I get you to show me a little of your mime
         G        F#        F  Em   | G F# | A | % |
You were always a very good dancer

[Verse 2]
E5                                        A     G [ E5 ]
 I'd be happy to show you a bit of what I found
E5                            A   B
 I'd be happy to share in its beauty
E5                                  A
 I'd be happy to lay low inevitably bound
        G       F#       F Em  | G F# | [ A ]
I would only be doing my duty


[Bridge]
A
   I wait (I wait, I wait, I wait)
  Am7
I wai-ait                          Oh, oh
          (I wai-ait, I wai-ait, I wai-ait)


[Riff] (saxophone/bass)
     | E5 | % | % | % |
I can wait
      E5
I can wait back in the bar, I can wait, I can wait
      E5                                       |  A  |  %  |
I can wait back in the car, I'll be waiting for you


[Chorus]
D                 A
Stranglehold, you know you've got one on me
        D            A
I don't wanna go without you
D                    A
Stranglehold, you've got me where you want me
      G                A
But I wanna know more about you
  G                Cadd9 Cadd9
I wanna know more about  you

 [Verse 3]
E5                                         A     G [ E5 ]
 Are you willing to wager a little of your life
E5                              A  B
 Are you willing to take such a gamble
E5                                        A
 Are you ready to walk on the edge of the knife
       G            F#          F Em  | G F# | [ A ]
Then I think we can skip the preamble


[Bridge]
A
   I wait (I wait, I wait, I wait)
  Am7
I wai-ait
          (I wai-ait, I wai-ait, I wai-ait)

I can wait back in the car, I'll be waiting for you
        A
I’ll be waiting ...


[Chorus]
D                 A
Stranglehold, you know you've got one on me
        D            A
I don't wanna go without you
