Billy Idol - Rita Hayworth: chords

          C#m
We’re all actors
        E
I play you, you play me
         F#
in this scene of
              G#
wannabes and abusers
                C#m
‘Cause when the black hits
             E
there’s no available light left
          F#                     G#
You can’t offset the dark with illusions

        C#m                  E
You do rails of blow at the House Soho
          F#                            G#
and say “man, this place is so full of losers”
             C#m
And when you wait at the valet
  E
try to escape
          F#
you get a come on from
                 G#
some nothin’ producer
       C#m
And he says
        E
And he says
        F#  G#
And he says

Chorus:
     C#m            E
You look like Rita Hayworth
         F#             G#
From the pinup in a magazine
           C#m             E
I said you look like Rita Hayworth
            F#           G#
I know you know what he means
        C#m
You’re swimmin’ with Jaws
           E
and this dream town will
             F#
swallow you whole
                     G#
You’re gonna need a bigger boat
        C#m
You’re swimmin’ with Jaws
           E
and this dream town will
             F#
swallow you whole
                     G#
You’re gonna need a bigger boat

You found a star map
Lyin’ dead in the street
You tried to glue it but the holes were colossal
It’s all a rat trap
Full of beautiful thieves
Selling infamy with evil apostles

You know it’s time to leave this place
Sugar, this ain’t Oscar bait

Chorus:
You look like Rita Hayworth
From the pinup in a magazine
I said, you look like Rita Hayworth
I know you know what he means
You’re swimmin’ with Jaws
And this dream town will swallow you whole
You’re gonna need a bigger boat
You’re swimmin’ with Jaws
And this dream town will swallow you whole
You’re gonna need a bigger boat

You look like Rita Hayworth
From the pinup in a magazine
I said, you look like Rita Hayworth
I know you know what he means
You’re swimmin’ with Jaws
And this dream town will swallow you whole
You’re gonna need a bigger boat
You’re swimmin’ with Jaws
And this dream town will swallow you whole
You’re gonna need a bigger boat

You’re gonna need a bigger boat
You’re gonna need a bigger boat
