D7
On a night like this
You look up at your lover
It's like you're in some old cartoon            
Then you detect
The scent of faded roses           
Up in the sky
There's that cruel countermoon

G9                                    
   Could that be murder you see in her eyes

Bm7                             Bm7/F#    f/Ab
   You try a long and desperate kiss

G7             G9
   You can't escape it

                     A7
That beam is sure to find you

                      b4  a
     D7               D6  d 
On a night like this

             C/F  
The story is told

        G7
How the women get restless

                 D7
And the men grow cold

                D6  d
Gotham shudders

                       C/F                    
There's a chill in the air      

          G7
There's a countermoon

           D7
Lovers all beware
              
Hand in hand
You walk along the river
You stop to clutch and caress
a countermoonbeam
Comes sweeping off the water
She says 'You're not my Jackie.                 
My Jackie was the best.'

G9
    Spitewaves are threatening
The seaside hotels

     Bm7                Bm7/F#  f/Ab   
It's nasty weather for July

G7
    Last night you loved her

   G9              A7
Tonight you wonder why
                      b4  a
     D7              D6   d 
On a night like this

             C/F  
The story is told

        G7
How the women get restless

        G9       D7
And the men grow cold

                D6  d
Gotham shudders

                       C/F                    
There's a chill in the air      

          G7
There's a countermoon

Lovers all beware

   At every pay phone

        G9
There's somebody cryin'

Bm7                                Bm7/F#   f/Ab
    All the streets are slick with tears

         G7
When you see that blue ray

          F13               F13-5
