INTRO CHORDS:  C# B (x4)

C#                 B                        C#         B
Back in sixty, the weight of his work at de club (oh Geno)
Before Jimmy's machine and the rocksteady rub    (oh Geno)
     B                         F#m
On a night when flowers didn't suit my tune,
After a week of flunking and bunking school,
Geno is heading the crowd that night
Just practising steps and keeping out of the fights.

A        E            B           F#
Academic inspiration, you gave me none,
You were Michael the lover, the fighter that won,
But now just look at me as I'm a-looking down on you,
No I'm not being flash it's what I'm built to do.

C#  (drumroll)

REPEAT INTRO x2 (C# B) 

C#                B                         C#         B
That man took the stage, his towel swinging high (oh Geno)
This man was my bombers, my dexys, my highs      (oh Geno)
        B                              F#m
Oh, the crowd they all hailed you, and chanted your name,
But they never knew, like we knew, me and you were the same,
And now you're all over, your sound is so tame,
Brrrrrri, you fed me and plainly I'll remember your name,

A        E            B           F#
Academic inspiration, you gave me none,
You were Michael the lover, the fighter that won,
But now just look at me as I'm a-looking down on you,
No I'm not being flash it's what I'm built to do.
