Sweet little lady sings like a songbird And she sings the opera like you ain't never heard, But she ain't ready, No, no, no, she ain't ready No, no, no, she ain't ready, And she ain't gonna rock & roll Em A She's sweet on Wagner, Em A I think she'd die for Beethoven, She loves the way Puccini lays down a tune, And Verdi's always creeping from her room. D Bm F#m A7 Come on I'll show you how to sing the blues Now baby, come on over you got nothin' to lose, Are you ready, hey, hey, hey are you ready Ooh, ooh, ooh, are you ready I wanna show you how to rock and roll. Now listen here baby she, said to me Just, meet me at the opera house at a quarter to three, 'Cos I'm ready, yea, yea, yea, I'm ready, Woo, hoo, hoo, I'm ready, I'm gonna show you how to sing the blues. D Bm F#m A7 Far, far away the music is playing. D Em7/G Well we were reelin' and a rockin' all through the night, Yea we were rockin' at the opera house until the break of light, And the orchestra were playin' all Chuck Berry's greatest tunes. And the singers in the chorus all got off on singing blues, And as the night grew older everybody was as one, The people on the streets came runnin' in to join in song Just to hear the opera singer singin' rock & roll so pure, I thought I saw the mayor there but I wasn't really sure, D Bm F#m A7 DDDDDDDDD.8-) But it's alright. @SONG: MISSION (A World Record) Bm For many days we travelled from a distant place and time, F#m To reach a place they call the planet Earth, G F#m There was to be a celebration, Bm A A G On the mission of the sacred heart. The planet Earth from way up there is beautiful and blue And floating softly through a rainbow, But when you touch down things look different here, At the mission of the sacred heart. CHORUS A G F#7 Watching all the days roll by Bm Gm6 Who are you and who am I?D D4 Gm6e---2--3--2--0------0h---3--3--------3----g---2--2-----------3-How's life on earth? Eb7 D7 When all the stars above Eb7 D7 A7 Rain icy fingers down on me On a dirty worn-out sidewalk, sits a mother with a baby, In her vale of tears she sees no rainbow And someone's singing from a window In the mission of the sacred heart. CHORUS -- repeat There's a building on a corner, in a city, in a land, On a place they call the planet Earth, My orders are to sit here and watch the world go by, From the mission of the sacred heart. CHORUS -- repeat Eb7: xx6564x D7 : xx5453x @SONG: SO FINE Intro: E C G D A (repeat) E A E A Two drifters on the morning sky, E A E F#m Two drifters sailing wide and high, E F#m G#m F#m When summer breezes blow across your mind, E F#m B9 B With you, I will walk the line. CHORUS C#m F#m I want it so fine C#m F#m I want it so fine C#m F#m Am E C G D A I want it so fine People walking hand in hand, Everybody's singing to the band, I want to be where the stars shine bright, And hear sweet music on a summer night. CHORUS -- repeat Sundowners we'll go on and on, We'll find the land of the midnight sun, And when you look you'll see for miles around, You'll see, the world is in your hand.
