[Intro]

C Am F G


[Verse 1]

Am                F
The cats are all crazy Mona Lisa.
Am                  F
they try to say my future is stone.
Am                  F           
They say they make all the rights calls,
    C                              G
to all the right numbers that the fat cats know.
Am                     F
But these wheels were meant for burning, 
Am                  F
these wings weren't meant to last.
Am                       F
And in the end it's all fireworks and smoke rings, 
  C                        G
a treacherous road, baby, try not to crash.


[Chorus]

C             Am                    F
And keep your singin' voice gold and 
F         C         G
put your red shoes on.
C                  Am         F 
I just wanna sing motown soul, and buy my baby 
            C           G
something nice to take home.
Am       G              F                  
i wanna dance with the poor girls,
F      Am   G          F      G   
Senora, i just wanna dance...


[Verse 2]

Am                         F
and after all it's just a crazy dream baby, 
Am                       F
all the good cards burn up in a flash.
Am                      F
and my my it's getting late Cinderella,
     C                              G
how long before these dresses turn right back to rags?
   Am        F
And - don't forget about your home, boy, 
Am          F
we almost died at them gates,
Am                        F 
thank the good Lord for sending his angels,
      C                G
in a '49 Mercury for lightning fast getaways.

[Chorus]

C             Am                    F
And keep your singin' voice gold and 
F         C         G
put your red shoes on.
C                  Am          
I just wanna sing rock and roll, 
F                          C            G
and buy my baby something nice to take home and
Am       G              F                  
i wanna dance with the poor girls,
F      Am   G          F      G   
Senora, i just wanna dance...


[Bridge]

F              G             Am
they not your friends, they all wanna sell your blood.
F       G           Am
isn't that why everybody signs up?
F          G               Am
Forget it baby, keep your eyes on that Cadillac.
     G
And keep them feet dancing, just keep them feet dancing now.
F              G             Am
They not your friends, they all wanna sell your blood.
F       G           Am
Isn't that why everybody signs up?
F          G               Am
Forget it baby, keep your eyes on that Cadillac.
     G
And keep them feet dancing 'fore they say you're too old and


[Final chorus]

C          Am                        
keep your singin' voice gold 
   F          C         G
and put your red shoes on
C          Am                      
keep your singin' voice gold 
   F          C         G
and put your red shoes on
C                  Am         
I just wanna sing rhythm and blues 
F
and buy my baby something
 C            G
nice she can take home and
C                Am
we'll keep our singing voices gold and
F              C         G
we'll put our red shoes on
C                  Am          
I just wanna sing motown soul
F                        C       G        C
and crack this old heart, baby, made of stone.
