Words & Music:



This is fully transcribed in Guitar World.


[spoken]  Unos, dos, tres, catorce!


E5  D5  E5  D5  E5  A5  G#5  G5  [4x]

(Turn it up loud, captain!  - spoken over the second repeat)


E                     D                         E

Lights go down.  It's dark.  The jungle is your head.

Can't rule your heart.  A feeling's so much stronger than a thought.

Your eyes are wide and though your soul it can't be bought,

Your mind can wander.



E       D               G                     A

Hello!  Hello! (Hola!)  I'm at a place called Vertigo. (Donde esta?)

E                   D

It's everything I wish I didn't know.

       G           D               E

Except you give me something I can feel, feel.


The night is full of holes as bullets rip the sky

Of ink with gold.  They twinkle as the boys play rock and roll.

They know they can't dance.  At least they know....


I can't stand the beat.  I'm asking for the cheque.

The girl with crimson nails Has Jesus round her neck.

Swinging to the music.  Swinging to the music.




E  D  A  E             E D A             E D A              D

         Check mated       Shots fall         shove me in  yeah!




D      E     D               E

All of this, all of this can be yours.  [3x]

     G                       A

Just give me what I want and no-one gets hurt...




Lights go down and all I know is that you give me something

      E              D           A        D [2x]

I can feel your love teaching me ho-o-o-o-o-ow

Your love is teaching me how, how to kneel... kneel.

[solo over riff - end on E]
