[Verse 1]
F#                                  C#
     Make me a deal, and make it straight,
C#
     All signed and sealed, I'll take it...
F#
  ...To Robert E. Lee, I'll show it,
C#
     I hope and pray he don't blow it, 'cause...
 B
  ...We've been around a long time,
       G#
Just trying to ...trying to, trying to...
C#
  ...Make the big time!


[Verse 2]
F#
     Take me on a roller-coaster,
C#
     Take me for an airplane ride,
F#
     Take me for a six-day wonder, but don't you...
C#
  ...Don't you throw my pride aside, besides...
 B
     What's real, and make believe?
 G#                      C#
Baby Jane's in Acapulco, we are flying down to Rio!

[Verse 3]
F#                                 C#
     Throw me a line, I'm sinking fast,
C#         
     Clutching at straws, ...can't make it,
F#
     Havana sound we're trying,
C#
     A hard edge, the hipster jiving,
     B
Oh - oh, 'Last picture show's down the drive-in,
  G#
You're so sheer, you're so chic,
 C#
'Teenage rebel of the week'!


[Verse 4]
F#
     Flavours of the mountain streamline,
C#
     Midnight blue casino floors,
F#
     Dance the cha-cha through 'til sunrise,
C#
     Opens up exclusive doors, oh - wow,
B
     Just like flamingoes look the same,
   G#
So me and you, just we two,
     C#
    Got  to search for some -thing new!

[Verse 5]
F#
     Far beyond the pale horizon,
C#
     Some place near the desert strand,
F#
     A-where my Studebaker takes me,
C#
     That's where I'll make my stand, but wait...
B
     Can't you see that Holtzer mane?
 G#
What's her name, ...Virginia Plain?
