 Every night

 In Jungletown

 All the boogies in the street
Am  F
 Radios

 Turned up very loud

Playin' Dancing Queen

VERSE
Am            F   G               Em
 This English girl from the North somewhere
Am          C             G       D5 E
 Is stayin' with me at my place
Am           F
 Drinkin' up all my beer
G                      Em
Talkin' about the poor niggers all the time
F
   It's a real disgrace, she says


BRIDGE
Am           F                         G
 I tell her, Darling, don't talk about things
               Em
You don't understand
Am           F  
 I tell her, Darling, don't talk about something
G                        Em
You don't know anything about
Am           F 
 I tell her, Darling, if you don't like it here
   G                Eb-5
Go back to your own miserable country


CHORUS
     Am           AmM7             Am7         AmM7
It's Christmas in Cape Town but it ain't the same
Am/F                 AmM7/F          Am7/F       AmM7/F
 Oh, the boys on the beach are still blowin'
Am/D            AmM7/D               Am7/D   AmM7/D
 And the summer wind still kicks the clouds around

MIDDLE 8
F
  You know my little brother, babe
Am
  Well, he works out at the diamond mine
F
  I drove him out there at five this mornin'
Am
  The niggers was waitin' in a big long line
Fadd#11
  You know those big old lunch pails they carry, man
      Am
With a picture of Star Wars painted on the side
         Fadd#11
They were starin' at us real hard with their big ugly yellow eyes


BRIDGE
         | Am F |  G     Em |
You could feel it   This time ...
         | Am F |  G     Eb-5 |
You could feel it


CHORUS
     Am           AmM7             Am7         AmM7
It's Christmas in Cape Town but it ain't the same
Am/F            AmM7/F       Am7/F    AmM7/F
 The stores are open all the time
Am/D        AmM7/D              Am7/D                 AmM7/D
 And little kids on skateboards cut in and out of the crowd

And the Christmas lights still shine

| Am F | G Em |


VERSE

 Myself, I don't like to drink the way
           Em
I used to, man, you know
Am                C              G   D5 E
 It don't seem to get me high
Am                  F
 And the beer don't taste the way it
         G               Em
Ought to taste somehow
      F
And I don't know why


BRIDGE
Am             F            G
 Don't talk to me about the planes
          Em
Man, I've heard it
Am           F             G    D5 E
 Just take a look around
Am                 F
 What are we gonna do
            G          Em
Blow up the whole damn country?
Fadd#11
I don’t know
