Graham Parker – Success lyrics

Esus4 E (strummed, then) Intro:

Esus4 E B C#m7
Oooh ooooh Oooh ooooh ooh ooooh (twice)
followed by notes: e eb c# b e e f# g#

A B G#m A
The dreams and hopes of men are powered by addiction
A B G#m A
And who am I to say that this is an affliction
A B E A
When everybody gets suckered in and lives their lives like fiction
A B E
Writing their own stories of success

They say they want you for your colourful evocation
The way you turn a cliche into a sensation
But all they ever wanted was that same vibration
The one that shimmers round success

CHORUS
Esus4 E B C#m7
Success success success success
Esus4 E B C#m7
Success success success success
E A E
All you ever need... success

[Repeat intro]

You can't be happy while some one else has a fistful
They glow from TV screens healthy strong and fiscal
And everybody slaps their back while you're alone with a wristful
Jerking to the rhythm of success

[Chorus]

Esus4 022200
