[Intro]
G   D   G   D

[Verse]
GSo, we're drinking and we're dancing
GAnd the band is really happening
EmAnd the Johnny Walker wisdom's running high
BmAnd my very sweet companion
BmShe's an angel of compassion
EmShe's rubbing half the world against her thigh
CEvery drinker every dancer
CLifts a happy face to thank her
G B EmAnd the fiddler fiddles something so sublime
[Verse]
DAnd the women tear their blouses off
DAnd the men they dance on the polka-dots
CAnd it's partner found and it's partner lost
CAnd it's hell to pay when the fiddler stops
GIt's closing time
CAnd the women tear their blouses off
CAnd the men they dance on the polka-dots
G BAnd it's partner found and it's partner lost
Em CAnd it's hell to pay when the fiddler stops
GIt's closing time
DClosing time
[Verse]
GWell, we're lonely, we're romantic
GSociety's psyched with acid
EmAnd the Holy Spirit's crying, "Where's the beef?"
BmAnd the moon is swimming naked
BmAnd the summer night is fragrant
EmWith a mighty expectation of relief
CSo we struggle and we stagger
CDown the snakes and up the ladder
G B EmTo the tower where the blessed hours chime
[Verse]
DAnd I swear it happened just like this
DA sigh, a cry and a hungry kiss
CThe gates of love they budged an inch
CI can't say much has happened since
GBut closing time
CI swear it happened just like this
CA sigh, a cry and a hungry kiss
G BThe gates of love they budged an inch
Em CBut you can't say much has happened since
GSince closing time
DClosing time
[Bridge]
EmI loved you for your beauty
EmBut that doesn't make a fool of me
BmYou were in it for your beauty too
EmAnd I loved you for your body
EmThere's a voice that sounds like god to me
ADeclaring that your body's really you
[Instrumental] D C G/B D/A [Verse]
CBut I loved you when our love was blessed
CAnd I love you now there's nothing left
G B EmBut sorrow and a sense of overtime
DAnd I missed you since the place got wrecked
DAnd I just don't care what happens next
CLooks like freedom but it feels like death
CIt's something in between, I guess
GIt's closing time
DClosing time
[Verse]
GOh, we're drinking and we're dancing
GYet there's nothing really happening
EmThis place is dead as heaven on a Saturday night
BmAnd my very close companion
BmGets me humping, gets me laughing
EmShe's a hundred but she's wearing something tight
Em(Tight, tight, tight, tight, tight, tight)
CAnd I lift my glass to the awful truth
CBut you can't reveal to the ears of youth
G B EmExcept to say, it isn't worth a dime
DAnd the whole damn place goes crazy twice
DIt's once for the Devil and it's once for the Christ
CBut the boss don't like those dizzy heights
CWe're busted in the blinding lights
GIt's closing time
D GIt's closing time
[Outro]
G(Closing, drinking, Devil, dancing)
D GClosing time
D GClosing time
