Em7 
You lEm7ive your life in the sEm7ongs you hear...
...on the Em7rock'n'roll radi -Em7 o,

And Em7when a young girl doesn't Em7have any friends,
That's a rEm7eally nice place to Em7go,

Am7 Folks hoping you'd tD7urn out cool,Gmaj7 but they had to take youCmaj7 out of school,
You're a B7sus4little touched, you kB7now,
 
Angie Em7ba -by!

LEm7overs appear in your rEm7oom each night,
And they wEm7hirl you across the (Em7)floor,
But they aEm7lways seem to Em7fade away,
When your DEm7addy knocks on the dEm7oor,

Am7 "Angie, girl, are yD7ou alright? Gmaj7 Tell the radiCmaj7 - o,'goodnight'!"
B7sus4 All alone once mB7ore,
Angie Em7ba -by!
Am7 An - D7gie Gmaj7baby, you're a..Am7. spe - cD7ial Gmaj7lady,
C D/C D/C Cmaj7 Cmaj7  
 Living in a world of make - be - lieve-----------,
Well... Em7may -be!
StEm7opping at her house is a neiEm7ghbour boy,
With Em7evil on his (Em7)mind,

'Cause Em7he's been peeking in AEm7ngie's room at nEm7ight,
Through her window (Em7)blind,

Am7 "I see your folks have gD7one away!Gmaj7 Would you dance witCmaj7h me today?
I'll B7sus4show you how to have a good tB7ime,

When he (Em7)walks in her room, he feels confused, like he walked into a play,
And the (Em7)music's so loud, it spins him around, till his soul has lost it's way,
Em F#m G(type2)
And as she turns the volume down,
G(type2) Ab A
He's getting smaller with the sound,
C It seems to pull him off the ground, D toward the radio he's bound,
E  
 Never to be found---------!
Em7  

The heEm7adlines read that a Em7boy disappeared, and evEm7eryone thinks he Em7died,
'Cept a cEm7razy girl with a sEm7ecret lover,
Who kEm7eeps her satis - (Em7)fied,
