Verse Chords: F C G G (x8)

      F  C    G            F      C    G
On a ferris wheel looking out on Coney Island
       F     C     G              F    C          G
Under more stars than there are prostitutes in Thailand
         F    C G               F        C      G
Our hair in the air, our lips blue from cotton candy
         F   C   G             F      C     G
When we kiss it feels like a flying saucer landing



Chorus:
              Dm   Dm  Am
But I can't sleep
G                    C       F      C    F  
mmm 'cause you've got strange powers
               Dm   Dm  Am
You're in my dreams
G             C       F       C   N/C
ooh with those strange powers.

Verse 2

F C G G (x4)

        F C    G         F       C          G
In Las Vegas where the electric bills are staggering
       F   C   G           F     C        G
The decor hog wild and the entertainment saccharin
        F  C  G            F       C         G
What a golden age, what a time of right and reason
        F C      G          F    C        G
The consumer is king and unhappiness is treason


Chorus

     F         C         G          F          C         G
The sun comes down like honey, the moon comes down like mercury
      F         C         G               F   C  G
The stars fall down like money, you come down to me


Chorus:
              Dm   Dm  Am
But I can't sleep
G                    C       F      C    F  
mmm 'cause you've got strange powers
               Dm   Dm  Am
You're in my dreams
G             C       F       C   
ooh with those strange powers.
 F     C       F       C
You got strange powers
 F     C       F       C
You got strange powers
 F     C       F       C-C-C-C
You got strange powers
