G                       A7
All the waiters in your grand cafe

Leave their tables when you blink, Oh
G                       A7
Every dog must have his everyday
D7                        G
Every drunk must have his drink
B7             Em
Don't wait for answers
G7             A7
Just take your chances

Don't ask me why

All your life you had to stand in line
D7                            G     C
Still you're standing on your feet, Oh
G                         A7
All your choices made you change your mind
D7                      G
Now your calendar's complete
      B7       Em
Don't wait for answers
     G7        A7
Just take your chances

D                              C
You can say the human heart is only make believe
    D                            G
And I am only fighting fire with fire
    E7                            A7
But you are still a victim of the accidents you leave
   E7                      A7 D7
As sure as I'm a victim of desire

G                        A7
All the servants in your new hotel
D7                        G     C
Throw their roses at your feet, Oh
G                      A7
Fool them all but baby I can tell
D7                        G
You're no stranger to the street
      B7      Em
Don't ask for favors
      G7      A7
Don't talk to strangers

Yesterday you were an only child
D7                         G    C
Now your ghosts have gone away, Oh
G                        A7
You can kill them in the classic style
D7                        G
Now you, "parlez vous francais"
