[Intro]

 What you got?
D
 Born to boogie
 
 
[Verse 1]
         D
He stood five-foot-four
          D
But was a giant of his generation
        G
Just an Eastern kid
                              D
Who became a rock 'n' roll sensation
  A7
A dandy of a superstar
    G7               D
Who led a sexual revolution
            D
Now when he played guitar
                              D
He was a rock god, babyface assassin
          G                                                D
He wore a black bowler hat and a jacket made of cherry red satin
         A7
He was a hero of mine
       G7                  D
That's why I wrote a song about him
 
 
[Chorus]
G               F#m          Em        D
"Bang a Gong," "Get It On," "I Love to Boogie"
G                F#m       Em      D
"Telegram Sam," "Twentieth Century Boy"
G             F#m        A                   D
"Ride a White Swan" and "Children of the Revolution," revolution
 
 
[Instrumental]

[Verse 2]
    D
Now when the lights go down and all the crowd is swaying
        G                                       D
Then he starts up "Jeepster," all the girls are screaming
 
Wow, they're screaming all right
       A7                             G7                 D
If you ever saw this guy, then you'll know just what I'm singing
 
Oh, Lord
    D
Now when I die, I'll be rocking up in Heaven beside him (Heaven beside him)
             G
We'll play a twelve part blues
                                  D
See if all God's children got the rhythm (Got the rhythm)
           A7
The little maestro was a genius
       G7                D
That's why I wanna sing about him (Sing about him)
 
 
[Chorus]
G               F#m          Em        D
"Bang a Gong," "Get It On," "I Love to Boogie"
G                F#m       Em      D
"Telegram Sam," "Twentieth Century Boy"
G             F#m        A                       D
"Ride a White Swan" and "Children of the, of the Revolution," people

Born to boogie

He stood five-foot-four
But was a giant of his generation
Just an Eastern kid
Who became a rock 'n' roll sensation
A dandy of a superstar
Who led a sexual revolution
Now when he played guitar
He was a rock god, babyface assassin
He wore a black bowler hat and a jacket made of cherry red satin
He was a hero of mine
That's why I wrote a song about him

"Bang a Gong," "Get It On," "I Love to Boogie"
"Telegram Sam," "Twentieth Century Boy"
"Ride a White Swan" and "Children of the Revolution," revolution

Now when the lights go down and all the crowd is swaying
Then he starts up "Jeepster," all the girls are screaming
Wow, they're screaming all right

I love to boogie
I love to boogie
Oh my, he could boogie-woogie-woogie
What a man, what a guy, what a star
