Verse:
        Am                        Em                 F
Now I'm of consenting age to be forgetting you in a cabaret. 
        Am                                      Em         F
Somewhere downtown where a burlesque queen may even ask my name 
       Am                                               
As she sheds her skin on stage
     Em                       F
I'm seated and sweating to a dance song on the club's PA
Am                              
The strip joint veteran sits two away 
Em                     F                          Am    C   Bm  
Smirking between dignified sips of his dignified peach and lime 
     F
daiquiri 

Chorus:
Am        C            F              
And isn't this exactly where you'd like me 
    Dm                                 F
I'm exactly where you'd like me, you know
            Em         Dm             
Praying for love in a lap dance and paying in naivety 
Am            C            F              
Oh, and isn't this exactly where you'd like me 
    Dm                                 F
I'm exactly where you'd like me, you know
            Em         Am             
Praying for love in a lap dance and paying in naivety 

Oh......

Well, I'm afraid that I
            F

And I wouldn't be caught dead in this place

Praying for love in a lap dance and paying in naivety
