 Born to boogie
 
 
VERSE 1
         D
He stood five-foot-four
          D
But was a giant of his generation
        G
Just an east end kid
                              D
Who became a rock 'n' roll sensation
  A7
A dandy of a superstar
    G7               D
Who led a sexual revolution
            D
Now when he played guitar
                              D
He was a rock god, babyface assassin
          G                                                D
He wore a black bowler hat and a jacket made of cherry red satin
         A7
He was a hero of mine
       G7                  D
That's why I wrote a song about him
 
 
CHORUS
G               F#m          Em        D
"Bang a Gong," "Get It On," "I Love to Boogie"
G                F#m       Em      D
"Telegram Sam," "Twentieth Century Boy"
G             F#m        A                   D
"Ride a White Swan" and "Children of the Revolution," revolution

VERSE 2
    D
Now when the lights go down and all the crowd is swaying
        G                                       D
Then he starts up "Jeepster," all the girls are screaming
 
Wow, they're screaming all right
       A7                             G7                 D
If you ever saw this guy, then you'll know just what I'm singing
 
Oh, Lord
    D
Now when I die, I'll be rocking up in Heaven beside him (Heaven beside him)
             G
We'll play a twelve part blues
                                  D
See if all God's children got the rhythm (Got the rhythm)
           A7
The little maestro was a genius
       G7                D
That's why I wanna sing about him (Sing about him)
 
 
CHORUS
G               F#m          Em        D

"Telegram Sam," "Twentieth Century Boy"
G             F#m        A                   D
"Ride a White Swan" and "Children of the Revolution"
   D
He loved to boogie
  D
I love to boogie
                D
Oh my, he could boogie-woogie-woogie
          D
What a man, what a guy, what a star
         D
Marc the genius
