C7 F7
You let me in and I'll help you win
C7 G7
this chance must be heaven sent
C7 F7
You buy the time I sold you all mine
C7 G7
No-one knows the D. J.'s bent
C7 F7
I don't care if someone gets hurt
C7 G7
When I lose it feels like dirt
C7 F7
Other records, they get played,
C7 G7
kick some heads in you get paid

F C F C
Man - oeu - vres, Man - oeu - vres
C F G C F G
baby don't ever make me wait fools and angels hesitate
Em G F C7 F7 C7 F7
My whole life is one more move too late

C7 F7
Here comes a man you just got to meet,
C7 G7
shake his hand and kiss his feet
C7 F7
He claims the time is coming soon,
C7 G7
the first pop music on the moon
C7 F7
The agent of the devil's a hip shakin fool,
C7 G7
if he don't like you that aint cool.
C7 F7
he's left already that's ok
C7 G7
we don't need him anyway

F C F C
Man - oeu - vres, Man - oeu - vres
C F G C F G
baby don't ever don't make me wait fools and angels hesitate
Em G F C
My whole life is one more move too late

Downtown L.A. madam Wong's,
C7 G7
someone puts a tape on a couple of songs
C7 F7
advertising the place next door
C7 G7
Madam finds out she'll sure gets sure
C7 F7
Out come the coolies, swinging their lead
C7 G7
get those rockers, take their heads
C7 F7
those poor souls must pay the price
C7 G7
they wind up in tomorrow's fried rice

My whole life is one more move too late

Too late
