Verse 1:
E
He stands in the doorway, his hands upon his hips

She stands by the jukebox, a sweet smile on her lips

He slowly walks up to her, she reaches out for him

It's almost like some magnet is pulling both of them
B
Then he says...
A
And she says...

Chorus:
E
Silent partners, they don't say a word

She is the adjective and he is the verb
A
They speak with their bodies and they talk with their eyes
Ba
They don't make no promises so they don't tell no lies
E
Silent partners

Silent partners

Verse 2:
E
Later in their love-nest at half-past ecstasy

They cling to each other and lie there silently

She would like to tell him what she feels in her heart

And he would like to bare his soul

But don't know where to start
B
So he says...
A
And she says...

Chorus.

Chorus (last half of it).
