      F                                               
Gonna find my baby, gonna hold her tight
      Bb                  C                             
Gonna grab some afternoon delight
   F                                                  
My mottos always been when it's right it's right
    Bb                         C                        
Why wait until the middle of a cold dark night


Bb                                        C                
When everything's a little clearer in the light of day
Bb                                            C              
And we know the night is always gonna be here anyway


F                                                     
Thinking of you's working up my appetite
        Bb                        C                     
Looking forward to a little after noon delight
        F                                             
Rubbing sticks and stones together makes the sparks ignite
        Bb                                C             
And the thought of rubbing you is getting so exciting
F   C       Bb F                               
Sky rockets in flight,
C     A      Dm                               
After noon delight
Bb   C      F      Bb   C      F            
Afternoon delight, afternoon delight


F                                                     
Started out this morning feeling so polite
         Bb                                     C        
I always thought a fish could not be caught who didn't bite
        F                                                        
But you got some bait awaitin' and I think I might
     Bb                      C                          
Like nibbling a little after noon delight
F   C       Bb F                               
Sky rockets in flight,
C     A      Dm                               
After noon delight
Bb   C      F      Bb   C      F            
Afternoon delight, afternoon delight

Interlude: F  Bb

Bb                            C               
Be waiting for me baby when I come around
Bb                                    C      
We can make a lot of loving 'fore the sun gone down


F                                                     
Thinking of you's working up my appetite
        Bb                        C                     
Looking forward to a little after noon delight
        F                                             
Rubbing sticks and stones together makes the sparks ignite
        Bb                                C             
And the thought of rubbing you is getting so exciting
F   C       Bb F                               
Sky rockets in flight,
C     A      Dm                               
After noon delight
Bb   C      F      Bb   C      F            
Afternoon delight, afternoon delight

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
