Where Do You Go To My Lovely? Peter Sarsted It is in 3/4 time and the basic progression is: INTRO: C Em F G G7 G6 C9* (TWICE) Chords: C 3 3 2 0 1 0 Em 0 2 2 0 0 0 F 1 3 3 2 1 1 G 3 2 0 0 0 3 G7 3 2 0 0 0 1 G6 3 2 0 0 0 0 C9* 3 2 0 0 3 0 Verses: You talk like Marlene Dietrich And you dance like Zizi Jean-Maire Your clothes are all made by Balmain And there's diamonds and pearls in your hair You live in a fancy apartment On the Boulevarde St. Michel Where you keep all your Rolling Stones records And your friends of Sacha Distel, yes you do... But where do you go to my lovely When you're alone in your bed Won't you tell me the thoughts that surround you I want to look inside your head I've seen all your qualifications That you got from the Sorbonne And the painting you stole from Picasso Your loveliness goes on and on, yes it does When you go on your summer vacation You go to Juan-les-Pins With your carefully-designed topless swimsuit You get an even suntan on your back and on your legs And when the snow falls you're found in St. Moritz With the others of the jet-set Where you sip your Napoleon Brandy But you never once get your lips wet But where do you go to my lovely When you're alone in your bed Won't you tell me the thoughts that surround you I want to look inside your head, yes I do Your name is heard in high places You know the Aga Khan He sent you a racehorse for Christmas And you keep it just for fun, for a laugh hahaha They say that when you get married It'll be to a millionaire But they don't realize where you came from And I wonder if they really care, they give a damn But where do you go to my lovely When you're alone in your bed Tell me the thoughts that surround you I want to look inside your head I remember the back streets of Naples Two children begging in rags Both touched with a burning ambition To shake off their lowly-born tags, and they try So look into my face Marie-Claire And remember just who you are Then go and forget me forever 'Cause I know you still bear the scar, deep inside, yes you do 'Cause I know where you go to my lovely When you're alone in your bed I can see all the thoughts that surround you 'Cause I can see inside your head Try this version in 'C'... it accentuates the rundown by starting it on the top 'E' string, and I think it's the key it was originally written in. Anyway it's very easy to play, but it's a great song. It's here under 'traditional' but it's not really a traditional song but a pop-song by Peter Sarsted from the sixties. NB: C9* = not sure about the name of this chord... basically it just continues the e-string rundown onto the 3rd fret of the b-string. Tabbed by: EuripidesToo.
