Intro:
     C Em C G C Em C G  
    Da Da Da da
     Am Em Am G  Am Em Am G 
    Da Da Da

C   
Sometimes I like to go uptown
Am
Where flashy people flash around
F 
It's extortion air and I don't care
G
You can taste the pretence in the air


C
And I wonder what you wear tonight
Am
The shiny black dress with the slit up the thigh
F
Is this the fantasy that I should think
G
Someone like you could love a creep like me


F              C       Dm
Your body is a weapon, love
F               Am    C
And it makes me wanna cry
F            C         Dm
My body is a temple of doom
F                Fm      
Due not to be by your side

Interlude:
     C Em C G C Em C G  
    Da Da Da da
     Am Em Am G  Am Em Am G 
    Da Da Da


C
I like my job when I do it well
Am
It's freelance work and it pays like hell
F
But I can get us a place with one bedroom
G
Who needs a friend when I got you


F              C       Dm
Your body is a weapon, love
F               Am    C
And it makes me wanna cry
F            C         Dm
My body is a temple of doom
F                Dm     
Due not to be by your side


G                             E
And I don't come here for the exclusivity
Am          G            F
I just come here for the view
G                                E
And the miniscule chance of some closed proximity
Am            G                 F
Or an awkward conversation with you
               G
Yeah that'd be cool

Solo: C Am F D G 

F              C       Dm
Your body is a weapon, love
F               Am      C
And it rips me off your side
F            C         Dm
My body is a temple of doom
F                Dm     
Due not to be by your side


C
So wanna take me from the one I love
Dm
So wanna take me from the one I love
F
So wanna take me from the one I love
G
So wanna take me from the one the one I love


C
So wanna take me from the one I love
Dm
So wanna take me from the one I love
F
So wanna take me from the one I love
G
So wanna take me from the one the one I love

Interlude:

    Da Da Da

F
So wanna take me from the one I love
Dm
So wanna take me from the one I love
F                      C
From the one the one I love
