[E]    [Abm]    [A]    [B]    
[A]    [E]    [B]    
[E]Psychedelic invocations
Of [Abm]Mata Hari [A]at the station
[B]I give to you.
A [A]Java princess of Hindu Birth
A [E]woman of flesh a child of earth
[B]I give to you.

The [E]hanging gardens of Babylon
Miles [Abm]Davis the black [A]unicorn
[B]I give to you.
The [A]Palaces of Montezuma
And the [E]Gardens of Akbar's tomb
[B]I give to you.

The [E]spider Goddess and the Needle Boy
The [Abm]slave-dwarves [A]they employ
[B]I give to you.
A [A]custard-coloured super-dream
[E]Of Ali McGraw and Steve McQueen
[B]I give to you.

[A]C'mon [E]baby,
let's get out of the [B]cold
And [A]give me, give me, give me
your [E]precious love for [B]me to hold.

[E]The epic of Gilgamesh
A [Abm] pretty little black [A]A-line dress
[B]I give to you.
[A]The spinal cord of JFK
Wrapped in [E]Marilyn Monroe's negligee
[B]I give to you.

[E]I want nothing in return
Just the [Abm] softest little [A]breathless word
[B]I ask of you.
A [A]word contained in a grain of sand
That can [E]barely walk can't even stand
[B]I ask of you.

[A]C'mon [E]baby,
let's get out of the [B]cold
And [A]give me, give me, give me
your [E]precious love for [B]me to hold.

[A]C'mon [E]baby,
let's get out of the [B]cold
And [A] give me, give me, give me
your [E]precious love for [B]me to hold.



Psychedelic invocations
Of Mata Hari at the station
I give to you.
A Java princess of Hindu Birth
A woman of flesh a child of earth
I give to you.

The hanging gardens of Babylon
Miles Davis the black unicorn
I give to you.
The Palaces of Montezuma
And the Gardens of Akbar's tomb
I give to you.

The spider Goddess and the Needle Boy
The slave-dwarves they employ
I give to you.
A custard-coloured super-dream
Of Ali McGraw and Steve McQueen
I give to you.

C'mon baby,
let's get out of the cold
And give me, give me, give me
your precious love for me to hold.

The epic of Gilgamesh
A pretty little black A-line dress
I give to you.
The spinal cord of JFK
Wrapped in Marilyn Monroe's negligee
I give to you.

I want nothing in return
Just the softest little breathless word
I ask of you.
A word contained in a grain of sand
That can barely walk can't even stand
I ask of you.

C'mon baby,
let's get out of the cold
And give me, give me, give me
your precious love for me to hold.

C'mon baby,
let's get out of the cold
And give me, give me, give me
your precious love for me to hold.
