[Intro]
C  Am  C  Am


ROGER
C           Am
What'd you forget?

MIMI
C       Am
Got a light?

ROGER
C       Am                G
I know you - you're - you're shivering

MIMI
F                   G
It's nothing they turned off my heat
F                   G
And I'm just a little weak on my feet
G                   Am     G
Would you light my candle?
N.C.
What are you staring at?

ROGER
C    Am       C            Am    C   Am
Nothing, your hair in the moonlight
C         Am       G
You look familiar
G       
Can you make it?

MIMI
F            G
Just haven't eaten much today
              F             
At least the room stopped spinning
G
Anyway. What?

ROGER
C    Am        C     Am
Nothing, your smile reminded me of

MIMI
C    Am                     G
I always remind people of - who is she?

ROGER
F                      G
She died. Her name was April.

MIMI
G
It's out again
F                G
Sorry about your friend
G                   Am        G
Would you light my candle?

ROGER
G
Well

MIMI
G
Yeah. Ow!

ROGER
G
Oh, the wax - it's

MIMI
G
Dripping! I like it - between my

ROGER
G
Fingers, I figured ...
G           C
Oh, well. Goodnight ...
C  Am  
C     Am
It blew out again?

MIMI
        C            Am
No - I think that I dropped my stash

ROGER
  C          Am       C       Am
I know I've seen you out and about
         C      Am
When I used to go out,
      G
Your candle's out

MIMI
   F              G
I'm illin' - I had it when I walked in the door
F              G 
It was pure - is it on the floor?

ROGER
  A
The floor?

MIMI
A                         G    
They say I have the best ass
       A                   G
Below 14th street. Is it true?

ROGER
 G
What?

MIMI
A
You're staring again.

ROGER
G
Oh no.
         A
I mean you do - have a nice -
          C          Am
I mean - you look familiar

MIMI
C          Am
Like your dead girlfriend?

ROGER
C         Am
Only when you smile.
G
But I'm sure I've seen you somewhere else - 

MIMI
F                 G
Do you go to the Cat Scratch Club?
       F              G
That's where I work - I dance

ROGER
        F                 G
Yes! They used to tie you up - 

MIMI
G
It's a living

ROGER
 F                  G
I didn't recognize you without the handcuffs

MIMI
G                   Am       G
We could light the candle
G                      Am       G
Oh won't you light the candle?

ROGER
C       Am      C         Am
Why don't you forget that stuff
C              Am       C     
You look like you're sixteen

MIMI
     Am                C     Am
I'm nineteen - but I'm old for my age
      C      Am
I'm just born to be bad

ROGER
  C         Am         G
I once was born to be bad
          F
I used to shiver like that

MIMI
     G
I have no heat - I told you

ROGER
     F
I used to sweat

MIMI
   G
I got a cold

ROGER
G
Uh huh
                   F
I used to be a junkie

MIMI
F
But now and then I like to

ROGER
G
Uh huh

MIMI
G
Feel good

ROGER
F 
Oh, here it - um

MIMI
F
What's that?

ROGER
G
Candy bar wrapper

MIMI
G                   Am      G
We could light the candle
G                          Am       G
Oh, what'd you do with my candle?

ROGER
C                Am
That was my last match

MIMI
C            Am      C
Our eyes'll adjust, thank
Am
God for the moon

ROGER
C       Am         C        Am
Maybe it's not the moon at all
          C                       Am
I hear Spike Lee's shooting down the street

MIMI
           C Am
Bah humbug ... Bah humbug

ROGER
F
Cold hands

MIMI
G
Yours too.
F              G
Big. Like my father's
F
Do you wanna dance?

ROGER
G
With you?

MIMI
F         G
No - with my father

ROGER
G
I'm Roger

MIMI
C    Am
They call me
C    Am        C
They call me Mimi

C

How is this bad? It's actually really good, sounds just like the version in the movie. Maybe you forgot to use the capo on the 3rd fret? 5 stars!

I was having problems with the key change. Thanks for the help. I found the original score to be in Eb. Not sure if it helps, just what I heard. Thanks again!
