        Dm                             Am   
They sentenced me to twenty years of boredom
       Dm                              Am  
For trying to change the system from within
       Dm                       Am        
I'm coming now I'm coming to reward   them
  G                  F  E                 Am
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

       Dm                        Am  
I'm guided by a signal in the heavens
       Dm                         Am   
I'm guided by this birthmark on my skin
       Dm                         Am   
I'm guided by the beauty of our weapons
  G                  F  E                 Am
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

    C                                G    F
I'd really like to live beside you, baby   
              C                             Am   
I love your body and your spirit and your clothes
But you see that line there
Moving through the station
    G          F     
I told you I told you
    E                      Am
I told you I was one of those

You loved me as a loser
but now your worried that I just might win
You know the way to stop me
but you don't have the discipline
How many nights I prayed for this:
to let my work begin
  G              F        E
First we take Manhattan,   
E               Am 
Then we take Berlin

Dm                                   Am   
I don't like your fashion business, mister
Dm                                      Am 
I don't like these drugs that keep you thin
Dm                                  Am   
I don't like what happened to your sister
  G                  F  E                 Am
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

       Dm                                Am     
And I thank you for those items that you sent me
    Dm                         Am
The monkey and the plywood violin
    Dm                               Am  
I practiced every night and now I'm ready
  G                  F  E                 Am
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

   Dm                            Am  
Remember me, I used to live for music
   Dm                                  Am
Remember me, I brought your groceries in 
       Dm                          Am    
It's Father's Day andd everybody's wounded
  G                  F  E                 Am
First we take Manhattan, then we takee Berlin
