A Slow Song
by Joe Jackson

Intro: C, Am, C, Am, C, Am, C

Verse 1:
Am                C                     Am          C
Music has charms they say
Am                  Gm7
But in some people's hands
Fm7   Dbmaj7        Fm7       Dbmaj7          Ab
It         becomes a savage beast
Can't they control it
Ab                         Bb       C
Why don't they hold it back

Verse 2:
You see my friend and me
Don't have an easy day
And at night we dance not fight
We need the energy
If not the sympathy

Eb         Fm7
But I'm brutalized by bass
Eb                Fm7
And terrorized by treble
Eb                  Fm7
I'm open to change my mood but
Eb                     Fm7
I always get caught in the middle

And I get tired of DJ's

Why is it always what he plays

I'm gonna push right through

I'm gonna tell him too

Tell him to play us
                    C       Am          Fm7, A#, A, G
Play us a slow song (4 times. On the fourth do not play the G)

Verse 3:
It's late- I'm winding down
Am I the only one
To want a strong and silent sound
To pick me up and undress me
Lay me down and caress me

Verse 4:
I feel your touch my hand
And whisper in my ear
Ask me how I'm feeling now
And I want to get near you
But I can't even hear you

Bridge 2:
But this is a fine romance
If we have to be so demanding
We need just one more dance to
Leave here with an understanding

Repeat Chorus

Ab, Bb (4 times)

Repeat Chorus:

End with:
C, Am
