Dm   Bb   C   Dm
Bb   Dm   C   Dm
 
 
[Interlude]
 
Dm     F
Am     Dm
 
 
[Verse 1]
 
Half past twelve
 Gm
And I'm watching the late show in my flat all alone
                                      Dm
How I hate to spend the evening on my own
Autumn winds
        Gm
Blowing outside the window as I look around the room
                                        Dm
And it makes me so depressed to see the phone
 
 
[Pre-Chorus]
 
 Bb
There's not a soul out there
 Gm                 Dm  A7
No one to hear my prayer
 
 
[Chorus]
 
 Dm          Bb     C          Dm
Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight
 Bb            Dm                   C       Dm
Won't somebody help me chase these shadows away
 Dm          Bb     C          Dm
Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight
 Bb            Dm                   C           Dm
Take me through the darkness to the break of the day
 
 
[Interlude]
 
Dm     F
Am     Dm
 
 
[Verse 2]
 
Movie stars
 Gm
Find the end of the rainbow, with that fortune to win
                                       Dm
It's so different from the world I'm living in
Tired of T.V.
Gm
I open the window and I gaze into the night
                                         Dm
But there's nothing there to see, no one in sight
 Bb
There's not a soul out there
 Gm                 Dm  A7
No one to hear my prayer
 
 
[Chorus]

Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight

  I saw myself    as a concealed attrac.....tion.
C            Bm      Cmaj7         C            Dsus4 D
  I felt you kept me away from the heat and the action.
G             Gmaj7  Bm              Em    Em7/D  C
  Just like a child, stubborn and misconceiving.

That's how I started the show, one of us had to go.

I've been cheated by you since I don't know when
D                                        G
So I made up my mind, it must come to an end
D5              D+5
Look at me now, will I ever learn?
D6               D7                      G
I don't know how but I suddenly lose control
G                         A
There's a fire within my soul
 
[Pre-Chorus]
G     D   A
Just one look and I can hear a bell ring

One more look and I forget everything, o-o-o-oh

Mamma mia, here I go again
G
My my, how can I resist you?

Mamma mia, does it show again?
G
My my, just how much I've missed you

I've been angry and sad about things that you do
D                                          G
I can't count all the times that I've told you "we're through"
D5              D+5
And when you go, when you slam the door
D6              D7                      G

"Bye bye, leave me now or never"

Mamma mia, it's a game we play

"Bye bye" doesn't mean forever

Fernando

Fernando Guitar Chords & Lyrics
[Verse 1]
 
A
Can you hear the drums Fernando?
                                              F#m
I remember long ago another starry night like this,
                 Bm
In the firelight Fernando,
 
You were humming to yourself and softly strumming your
E
guitar.
 
I could hear the distant drums,
                                           A
and sounds of bugle calls were coming from afar.
 
 
[Verse 2]
 
A
They were closer now Fernando,
                                           F#m
Every hour every minute seemed to last eternally.
                Bm
I was so afraid Fernando.
 
We were young and full of life and none of us prepared to
E
die.
 
And I'm not ashamed to say,
                                            A
The roar of guns and cannons almost made me cry.
 
 
[Chorus]
 
          Esus4            E
There was something in the air that night,
                       A
The stars were bright, Fernando.
                        E
They were shining there for you and me,
    E        A
For liberty, Fernando.
         A7                          F#
Though I never thought that we could lose,
           B7
There's no regret.
                   E
If I had to do the same again,
  E                 A
I would, my friend, Fernando.
                   E
If I had to do the same again,
  E                 D       A
I would, my friend, Fernando.
 
 
 
[Verse 3]
 
A
Now we're old and grey Fernando.
                                                    F#m
And since many years I haven't seen a rifle in your hand.
                       Bm
Can you hear the drums Fernando?
 
Do you still recall the fateful night we
                E
crossed the Rio Grande?
 
I can see it in your eyes,
                                                A
How proud you were to fight for freedom in this land.
 
 
[Chorus]
 
          Esus4            E
There was something in the air that night,
                       A
The stars were bright, Fernando.
                        E
They were shining there for you and me,
     E       A
For liberty, Fernando.
         A7                          F#
Though I never thought that we could lose,
           B7
There's no regret.
                   E
If I had to do the same again,
  E                 A
I would, my friend, Fernando.
 
 
[Chorus]
 
          Esus4            E
There was something in the air that night,
                       A
The stars were bright, Fernando.
                        E
They were shining there for you and me,
    E7       A
For liberty, Fernando.
         A7                          F#
Though I never thought that we could lose,

There's no regret.

If I had to do the same again,

Yes, If I had to do the same again, I would, my friend, Fernando.

If I had to do the same again,

The Day Before You Came

The Day Before You Came Guitar Chords & Lyrics
[INTRO]
Cm | | | |
 
 
[VERSE 1]
Cm                                    | Ab6 *        | G |
    Must have left my house at eight, because I always do
     | G                                   | *             | Cm | |
    My train, I'm certain, left the station just when it was due
    | Cm                             | *             | Bb |
    I must have read the morning paper going into town
      | Bb                            |         Bb7/D           | Eb     | |
    And having gotten through the editorial, no doubt I must have frowned
 
 
[CHORUS 1]
  Eb                    |                     | Bb |
I must have made my desk around a quarter after nine
   | Bb7                    |                            | Eb
With letters to be read, and heaps of papers waiting to be signed
Eb/G | Ab                       | Eb/G
I      must have gone to lunch at half past twelve or so
        | Fm                    |
The usual place, the usual bunch
  | Fm                            | Dm7-5 *         | G     |
And still on top of this I'm pretty sure it must have rained
             | Cm       |
The day before you came
 
 
[VERSE 2]
| Cm                          | *               | G  |
I must have lit my seventh cigarette at half past two
  | G7                     |         G7/B * | Cm  |
And at the time I never even noticed I   was  blue
| Cm                                  |  Cm      Cm/D *    | Bb | |
I must have kept on dragging through the business     of the day
Bb                      | Bb7                   Bb/D |  Eb |
Without really knowing anything, I hid a part of me a - way
 
 
[CHORUS 2]
 | Eb                    |                          | Bb |
At five I must have left, there's no exception to the rule
| Bb7                   |                             | Eb      |
A matter of routine, I've done it ever since I finished   school
  | Ab
The train back home again,
| Eb/G                         | Fm                |
undoubtedly I must have read the evening paper then
 | Fm                              | Dm7-5 *      | G    |
Oh yes, I'm sure my life was well within  its usual frame
             | Cm
The day before you came

      Cm                             | Ab6 *           | G |
    I must have opened my front door at eight o'clock or so
      | G7                              |         G7/B * | Cm |
    And stopped along the way to buy some Chinese food to  go
      | Cm                          | *           | Bb |
    I'm sure I had my dinner watching something on TV
          | Bb                            |          Bb7         | Eb |
    There's not, I think, a single episode of Dallas that I didn't see
 
 
[CHORUS 3]
| Eb                   |                     | Bb7 |
I must have gone to bed around a quarter after ten
| Bb7                    |                    Bb7/D | Eb  |
I need a lot of sleep, and so I like to be in bed  by then
| Ab
I must have read a while
  | Eb/G                        | Fm                       | Fmadd9 Fm
The latest one by Marilyn French or something in that style
   | Fm                         | Dm7-5 *         | G7 |
It's funny, but I had no sense of liv - ing without aim
                 | Cm  | Cmadd9 Cm
The day before you came
 
 
[FINAL CHORUS]
  | Ab
And turning out the light
| Eb/G                              | Fm               | Fmadd9 Fm
I must have yawned and cuddled up for yet another night
  | Fm                             | Dm7-5 *          | G7 |
And rattling on the roof I must have heard the sound of rain
                 | Cm
The day before you came

 shape of me.

[Verse]
              G
I don't wanna talk
                   D/F#
About things we've gone through
                    Am/E
Though it's hurting me
              D
Now it's history
 
               G
I've played all my cards
                       D/F#
And that's what you've done too
                Am/E
Nothing more to say
               D
No more ace to play
 
 
[Chorus]
                    G
The winner takes it all
    B7             Em
The loser standing small
  E7/G#         Am
Beside the victory
                D
That's her destiny
 
 
[Verse]
              G
I was in your arms
             D/F#
Thinking I belonged there
                  Am/E
I figured it made sense
              D
Building me a fence
 
              G
Building me a home
                D/F#
Thinking I'd be strong there
            Am/E
But I was a fool
               D
Playing by the rules
 
 
[Bridge]
                     G
The gods may throw a dice
      B7               Em
Their minds as cold as ice
    E7/G#   Am
And someone way down here
              D
Loses someone dear
 
 
[Chorus]
                    G
The winner takes it all
    B7           Em
The loser has to fall
     E7/G#           Am
It's simple and it's plain
                D
Why should I complain?
 
 
[Verse]
           G
But tell me does she kiss
               D/F#
Like I used to kiss you?
                 Am/E
Does it feel the same
                    D
When she calls your name?
 
              G
Somewhere deep inside
                D/F#
You must know I miss you
               Am/E
But what can I say
               D
Rules must be obeyed
 
 
[Bridge 2]
           G
The judges will decide
    B7           Em
The likes of me abide
    E7/G#         Am
Spectators of the show
               D
Always staying low
 
 
[Bridge 3]
                G
The game is on again
  B7         Em
A lover or a friend
  E7/G#          Am
A big thing or a small
                    D
The winner takes it all
 
 
[Verse]
              G
I don't wanna talk
                D/F#
If it makes you feel sad
            Am/E
And I understand
                        D
You've come to shake my hand
 
       G
I apologize
                D/F#
If it makes you feel bad
             Am/E
Seeing me so tense
             D
No self-confidence, but you see …Z
 
 
[Outro]

The winner takes it all

The winner takes it all ...
 
G          B7 Em        Em E/G#
 So the winner takes it a -all
Am            D
 And the loser has to fall
G           B7  Em       Em E/G#
 Throw a di-ice, cold as ice
Am             D
 Way down here, someone dear
G           B7  Em      Em  E/G#
 Takes it a-all, has to fall
Am                     D
 It seems plain to me ...

Slipping Through My Fingers

Slipping Through My Fingers Guitar Chords & Lyrics
Capo: 3rd fret

[Verse 1]
 
G               Gm
Schoolbag in hand
            D           F#m
She leaves home in the early morning
G       Gm
Waving goodbye
        D               F#m
With an absent-minded smile
G           Gm
I watch her go
        D               F#m
With a surge of that well-known sadness
G               A               D
And I have to sit down for a while
 
 
[Pre-Chorus]
 
    G                A/C#          D       F#
The feeling that I'm losing her forever
    G              A            D        D/F#
And without really entering her world
    G              A/C#           D              Asus4         Dsus4   D
I'm glad whenever I can share her laughter, that funny little girl
 
 
[Chorus]
 
                      G             D
Slipping through my fingers all the time
          F#m           Em
I try to capture every minute
     G       D
The feeling in it
                     Asus4  A       D
Slipping through my fingers all the time
             G                D
Do I really see what's in her mind
            F#m                 Em
Each time I think I'm close to knowing
      G        D
She keeps on growing
                      Asus4  A      D
Slipping through my fingers all the time
 
 
[Verse 2]
 
G               Gm
Sleep in our eyes
        D       F#m
Her and me at the breakfast table
G       Gm
Barely awake
D                   F#m
I let precious time go by
G               Gm
Then when she's gone
              D        F#m
There's that odd melancholy feeling
G               A             D
And a sense of guilt I can't deny
 
 
[Pre-Chorus]
 
        G             A/C#       D       F#
What happened to the wonderful adventures
        G        A                 D  D/F#
The places I had planned for us to go (slipping through my fingers all the time)
G                    A/C#
Well some of that we did
             D
But most we didn't
   Asus4             Dsus4   D
And why I just don't know
 
 
[Chorus]
 
                      G             D
Slipping through my fingers all the time

I try to capture every minute
     G       D
The feeling in it
                     Asus4  A       D
Slipping through my fingers all the time
             G                D
Do I really see what's in her mind
            F#m                 Em
Each time I think I'm close to knowing
      G        D
She keeps on growing

G                      A                  D       F#
Sometimes I wish that I could freeze the picture
G                     A               D
And save it from the funny tricks of time
  D/F#               G   A  D
Slipping through my fingers

             A                      F#m               Bm   Em
Leaning over me, he was trying to explain the laws of geometry 
               A                               D

    Am
And if he happens to be free 
   E7/G#                  E7              Am
I bet he wouldn't fancy me, That's too bad
                       Am/G  Bb/F   F                 F/E
So I must leave, I'll have to go To Las Vegas or Monaco
 Dm                                B7/D#                    E7
And win a fortune in a game, my life will never be the same...
