Intro: C   B7   E7  F   Fm   G6   C

Am            C
Slow down you crazy child
       G                  Bb
You're so ambitious for a juvenile
            F                      C
But then if you're so smart tell me why
                 D      E7
Are you still so afraid?
Am                           C
Where's the fire, what's the hurry about?
           G                      Bb
You better cool it off before you burn it out
        F              
You got so much to do and only
C                 D   E
So many hours in a day
F                         G
But you know that when the truth is told
             C           C  
That you can get what you want
           Am       G
Or you can just get old
             F                  Bm7      E       Am          D
You're gonna kick off before you even get halfway through, Oh oh
              Ab7     A                  D
When will you realise...Vienna waits for you


Am               C
Slow down you're doing fine
             G                           Bb
You can't be everything you want to be before your time
              F                 C           D        E7
Although it's so romantic on the borderline tonight, tonight
Am                   C
Too bad but it's the life you lead
           G                            Bb
You're so ahead of yourself that you forgot what you need
               F
Though you can see when you're wrong
             C                           D             E
You know you can't always see when you're right, you're right
F                       G
You got your passion you got your pride
    C                  C         Am       G
But don't you know that only fools are satisfied?
F                  Bm7            E        Am       D
Dream on but don't imagine they'll all come true, Oh oh
              Ab7     G                  C
When will you realise...Vienna waits for you

Solo:
    Am C  G  C
    F  C  D  E

F            G
Slow down you crazy child
         F            C           Am          G
Take the phone off the Hook and disappear for a while
F                   Bm7              E      Am      D
It's alright you can afford to lose a day or two, Oh oh
              Ab7     G                  C
When will you realise...Vienna waits for you


F                          G
And you know that when the truth is told
              C            C  
That you can get what you want
           Am       G
Or you can just get old
              F                  Bm7      E       Am          D
You're gonna kick off before you even get halfway through, Oh oh
              Ab7      G                   C  A7
Why don't you realise...Vienna waits for you
              D       G                   C
When will you realise...Vienna waits for you

the A and D on ” vienna waits for you” sounds weirddd does anybody know notes that sound more natural??
