INTRO

Em

VERSE 1

Sing muse of the passion of the pistol
Sing muse of the warning by the whistle
A night so dark in the waning
A dawn obscured by a slate sky raining

VERSE 2

Five and twenty burglars by the reservoir
A teenage lookout on the signal tower
The mogul's daughter in hogties
The mogul fingers the wrong guy

CHORUS
              
           C                       D
It was a perfect a perfect a perfect a perfect   
C                     G                 Em
A perfect a perfect a perfect a perfect crime
           C                       D
It was a perfect a perfect a perfect a perfect   
C                     G                 Em
A perfect a perfect a perfect a perfect crime

It was the perfect crime

VERSE 3

The bagman's quaking in the fingers
The hand off lends a little lingers
A well dressed man in the cross hairs
A shot rings out from somewhere upstairs

CHORUS
           C                       D
It was a perfect a perfect a perfect a perfect   
C                     G                 Em
A perfect a perfect a perfect a perfect crime
           C                       D
It was a perfect a perfect a perfect a perfect   
C                     G                 Em
A perfect a perfect a perfect a perfect crime


It was the perfect crime

BRIDGE

C                         B
   It was like a ticker-tape parade
            C                               B
   When the plastique on the safe was blown away
C                        B
   We all gazed from eye to eye
         C                       Em 
   As we mouthed our silent good-byes

VERSE 4

The valley sleeping with the bastard
It stinks of slumber and disaster
Two words I spoke on the tap-wire
The agent's ploy was a surefire backfire

CHORUS

           C                       D
It was a perfect a perfect a perfect a perfect   
C                     G                 Em
A perfect a perfect a perfect a perfect crime
           C                       D
It was a perfect a perfect a perfect a perfect   
C                     G                 Em
A perfect a perfect a perfect a perfect crime

     C                  D                
a perfect a perfect a perfect a perfect           
     C                  D                
a perfect a perfect a perfect a perfect
     C                  D                
a perfect a perfect a perfect a perfect
     C                  D                
a perfect a perfect a perfect a perfect
     C                  D                
a perfect a perfect a perfect a perfect
     C                  D                
a perfect a perfect a perfect a perfect
     C                  D                
a perfect a perfect a perfect a perfect
     C                  D                Em
A perfect a perfect a perfect a perfect crime
