Lyrics: She's a maid in heaven He's a knight on the tiles A bat out of hell, oh well! It's just a question of style... It's a time for giving In the two-star hotel Where breakfast in bed, per head Is just the price of a smile... I know It's not easy to live this way Just an hour and a fleeting kiss 'til the morning. Silent night of wonders Day breaks through the door So broken and torn, reborn Two shadows thrown on the floor. Hold me now go lightly Take the rough with the smooth A token of love, my love Was made in heaven for you. | pb pre-bend |(4) optional note/effect | / slide up | \ slide down | h hammer-on | p pull-off | ~ vibrato | + harmonic | x Mute note ===============================================================================
