Verse 1:

C        F
 Pale, pubescent beasts,
         G         Am
Roam through the streets and coffee-shops.
   Dm7      F
Their prey gather in herds,
           Eb           C#
Of stiff knee-length skirts and white ankle-socks.
  C            Am
But while they search for a mate,
       G          Am
My type hiber-nate, in bedrooms a-bove,
  D7      F   G C
Com-posing their songs of love.

Verse 2:

C        F
 Young, uniform minds,
      G         Am
In uniform lines and uniform ties.
  Dm7           F
Run round, with trousers on fire,
        Eb          C#
And signs of de-sire they cannot dis-guise,
   C       F
While I, try to find words,
        G          Am
As light as the birds, that circle a-bove,
  D7    F   G C
To put in my songs of love.

Bridge 1:

Ab      Bb    C        Am
 Fate doesn't hang on a wrong, or right choice.
Ab     Bb      C       G
 Fortune de-pends on the tone, of your voice.

Verse 3:

C          F
So sing while, you have time,
      G         Am
Let the sun shine, down from a-bove;
  D7      F   G C
And fill you with songs of love.

Solo:

C F G Am, Dm7 F Eb C#
C F G Am, D7 F G C

Bridge 2:

Ab      Bb    C        Am
 Fate doesn't hang on a wrong, or right choice.
Ab     Bb      C       G
 Fortune de-pends on the tone, of your voice.

Verse 3:

C          F
So let's sing, while we still can,
       G        Am
While the sun hangs, high up a-bove.
D     F    Am  C
 Wonderful songs of lo...ove,
D7     F   G C
 Beautiful songs of love.
