[F] Everywhere the Carnabetian [C] army marches [A7] on
Each one a [D] dedicated [G7] follower of [C] fashion [C]

Chorus
Oh yes he [G] is (oh yes he is) oh yes he [C] is (oh yes he is)
His [F] world is built round discotheques and [C] parties [C]
This [F] pleasure seeking individual [C] always looks his [A7] best
Cos he's a [D] dedicated [G7] follower of [C] fashion [C]

Chorus
Oh yes he [G] is (oh yes he is) oh yes he [C] is (oh yes he is)
He [F] flits from shop to shop just like a [C] butterfly [C]
In [F] matters of the cloth he is as [C] fickle as can [A7] be
Cos he's a [D] dedicated [G7] follower of [C] fashion [A]
He's a [D] dedicated [G7] follower of [C] fashion [A]

[D] Saturday night I was | downtown

[D] Sittin' in a nest of | bad men
[1/2F] Whiskey bottles [1/2G] piling [D] high [D]

[D] Bootlegging boozer on the | west side
Full of [1/2F] people who are [1/2G] doing [D] wrong
[D] Just about to call up the | DA man
When I [1/2F] heard this woman [1/2G] singin' a [D] song [D]

A [G] pair of 45's made me | open my eyes
My [A] temperature started to | rise [A]
She was a [G] long cool woman in a | black dress
Just- a [1/2F] five- nine, [1/2G] beautiful, [D] tall
With [G] just one look I was a | bad mess

When [D] Charlie said I hope that you're | able boy
'Cause I'm [1/2F] telling you she [1/2G] knows where it's [D] at
Then [D] suddenly we heard the | sirens
And [1/2F] everybody [1/2G] started to [D] run
A- [D] jumping out of doors and | tables
When I [1/2F] heard somebody [1/2G] shootin' a [D] gun [D]

Well, the [D] DA was pumping my | left hand
And a- [1/2F] she was a- [1/2G] holding my [D] right
Well, [D] I told her don't get scared
'Cause [F] you're gonna be spared
I've [G] gotta be forgivin' if I | wanna spend my living
With a [G] long cool woman in a | black dress
Just- a [1/2F] five- nine, [1/2G] beautiful, [D] tall
Yeah, with [G] just one look I was a | bad mess
'Cause that [1/2F] long cool [1/2G] woman had it [D] all [D]
Had it [D] all [D]
Had it [D] all [D]
Had it [D↓] all
