Well, hel - lo, Mr.Soul, I dropped by to pick up a reason,
[ch]F#/E[/ch]  G/E
           Ya---, ya---, ya---, ya -ya -ya -ya!
[ch]F#/E[/ch]        E5                 [ch]F#/E[/ch]    G/E              [ch]F#/E[/ch]     E5
 For the thought that I caught that my head is the event of the season, oh!
[ch]F#/E[/ch]  G/E                              [ch]F#/E[/ch]      G

The lights turned on, and the curtain fell down,
     Am7                 D
And when it was over it felt like a dream,
      Am7                           D
They stood at the stage door, and begged for a scream,
      G        G/F#         Em             Em7
The agents had paid for the black limou - sine,
       C                    D
That waited outside in the rain!

Eighteen years of A - merican dream,
   Am7                        D
He saw that his brother had sworn on the wall,
   Am7                       D
He hung up his eyelids, and ran down the hall,
       G        G/F#       Em         Em7
His mother had told him a trip was a fall,
      C                      D
And don't mention babies at all!

The streets were lined for the wedding pa - rade,
     Am7                               D
The Queen wore the white gloves, the county of song,
     Am7                         D
Her black covered caisson, her horses had drawn,
        G        G/F#            Em        Em7
Pro - tected her King from the sunrays of dawn,
        C                         D
They married for peace, and were gone!
