[Verse 1]
 Em7             A6            Em7             A7
Leave the bureau in the snow, catch a tram to Onkel Pö,
 Em7           A6              Em7     A7
Early evening ring around the moon,
 Em7              A6      Em7              A7
Slip in by the concierge, by the bikes and up the stairs,
 Em7                 A6             Em7    A7 
Snap the latch, and creep into the room!


[Verse 2]

Throw off your coat, pick up the post,
            D      Dsus2  D4  D  D6  D7  D9  D7
And put a coffee on,
    C/D         G/D  C/D           G/D
Lie down on the bed, lay back your head,
          D      Dsus2  D4  D  D6  D7  D9
Smoke a cigarette,
      D7           Em7   A6                   E13sus4
And listen to the radio,     woo, oo - oo,    ^ ^   ^

[Verse 3]
Em7          A6            Em7             A7
In the city late tonight, double feature, black and white,
  Em7                A6         Em7     A7
'Bitter Tears' and 'Taxi to the Klo',
 Em7             A6            Em7              A7
Find a bar, a - void a fight, show your papers, be polite,
  Em7               A6            Em7
Walking home with nowhere else to go!

Smoke another cigarette,
      D7           Em7    A6
And listen to the radio,      woo, oo - oo,
E13sus4                 Em7    A6                 E13sus4

Atmospherics after dark, noise and voices from the past,
    Em7/B                     G/D       Em7     A6

  Em7               F#m       G                      A7
Interference in the night, thousand miles on either side,
  Em7/B              G/D       Em7
Stations fading into the un - known!

We'll lie down on the bed,  lay back our heads,
                D      Dsus2  D4  D  D6  D7  D9
Smoke another cigarette---------,
