CAPO: 2nd Fret
 
  
INTRO:  C D F  C D F  C  Am G  Am G  Am G  Am G
 
       Am                          F
It was way after midnight, all the village was asleep
      G                                       Gadd9     F
All except for one young villain, through the night did creep
        Am                          G
He went down to the church, started ringing the bell
F                           G                          Am   G Am G
Everybody came out looking, running like the hounds of hell
 
 
           Am                             F
"There are lights in the castle, they are blazing all night long
       G                            Gadd9           F
Let me tell you everybody, there is something going on"
        Am                           G
So they took to the torches and went over the wall
F                             G                     Am   G Am 
Someone went ahead to tell of horrors hiding in the hall
 
 
CHORUS:
              G                     F
"What did you see?" - "I saw an apparition"
              G                       F
"What did you see?" - "A monster on a bed"
              G                       F
"What did you see?" - "I saw an old magician,
Dm                            E
Waking up the living from the dead!"
      C          G
Keep away, keep away,
         F                   G
They are making the perfect man
      C                       D
Keep away, (keep away), keep away,
         F                   G                    Am G  Am G  Am G  Am G 
They are making the perfect, making the perfect man!
 
 
        Am                         F
So they called for the doctor, the doctor said, "It's strange
         G                                Gadd9       F
He's got pistols on his fingers, he's got love on the brain
           Am                            G
He's got a tongue good for lying and the legs to run away
        F                    G                  Am   G Am 
He will fool all the people, all the time some day!"
 
 
CHORUS:
              G                       F
"What will he be?" - "A leader of the country"
              G                       F
"What will he be?" - "A member of the press"
              G                        F
"What will he be?" - "A banker selling moonbeams,
    Dm                             E
Oh, you can watch your money going west!"
      C          G
Keep away, keep away,
         F                   G
They are making the perfect man
      C                       D
Keep away, (keep away), keep away
         F                   
They are making the perfect, making the perfect,
G                    Am  G  Am G  
Making the perfect man!
