       A2 A2/G Dm                                             D4
          If you see something that looks like a star
          And it's shooting up out of the ground
          And your head is spinning from a loud guitar
          And you just can't escape from the sound
          Don't worry too much it'll happen to you
          We were children once playing with toys

                                      D2                                          A2
                        And the thing that you're hearing is only the sound
                                   C2                  G                 F
                        Of the low spark of high-heeled boys
                                                                                       D2/F# C  C/G D2 (x2)

                                         D2/F#  C                                       C/G D2
                                         The percentage you're paying is too high priced
                                         While you're living beyond all you're means
                                         And the man in the suit has just bought a new car

                                                         C                                       G
                                         From the profit he's made on your dreams
                                         But today you just read that the man was shot dead
                                         By a gun that didn't make any noise

                        But it wasn't the bullet that laid him to rest
                        Was the low spark of high-heeled boys.
                                             *Solo*    D2 A2 A2/G (x8)
                                                                Dm  A2 A2/G (x2)

         If you had just a minute to breathe
         And they granted you one final wish
         Would you ask for something like another chance
         Or something similar as this
         Don't worry too much it'll happen to you
         As sure as your sorrows are joys

                        And the thing that disturbs you is only the sound
                        Of the low spark of high-heeled boys
                                                                                       D2/F# C  C/G D2 (x2)

                                         The percentage you're paying is too high priced
                                         While you're living beyond all you're means
                                         And the man in the suit has just bought a new car
                                         From the profit he's made on your dreams
                                         But today you just read that the man was shot dead
                                         By a gun that didn't make any noise

                        But it wasn't the bullet that laid him to rest
                        Was the low spark of high-heeled boys.
                                             *Solo*   Dm D4 A2 A2/G (repeat)

         If I gave you everything that I owned
         And asked for nothing in return
         Would you do the same for me as I would for you
         Or take me for a ride
         And strip me of everything including my pride
         But spirit is something that no one destroys

                        And the sound that disturbs you is only the sound
                        Of the low spark of high-heeled boys
                        Dear boys...
                                                (bridge, chorus, intro, fade)
