Chorus:
F#                                          B
For you I cool the streets with the wind at night
                                   G#m
in the day I beat with the sun the cobblestones
          C#
and cool (no idea what he sings here)
F#                                  B
The earth I fill with diamonds plus light

to say they never ever bite

I promise...

Chorus:
F#                        B
With you God chose me his wife
                          G#m
Lucifer and the mother of witches
                 C#
in marriage they unite
F#                                B
My gremlins color purple left and light
            G#m         C#
to say they never, ever bite

I promise...

Next up there is a short instrumental solo 
with one chorus in the background.
Just play some random F# major scale notes and it
will sound great

I promise...

Chorus:
F#                     B
May 9th, 1976 Satan's came to earth view May 9th
              G#m
gremlins have pictures
                      C#
of the anniversary of Christ
F#                                              B
The square root of zero, something smaller than zero
                    G#m
which keeps getting smaller
                          C#
keep you out of sight and soul.

I promise...

Short solo here again, just do the same thing 
as mentioned before

I promise...
