    Berber jew'lry jangling down the street

And your late night friends leave you in the cold gray dawn

Angels beating all their wings in time

           Am                                  G

With smiles on their faces and a gleam right in their eyes

Woah, thought I heard one sigh for you

G (½)               F (½)                     C (½)                   G (½)

   Come on up, come on up, now, come on up now
