by Donovan
Capo 3rd fret

(C)  (Em7/B)  (Am)  (Am7/G)  (D7/F#)  (Dm/F)  (hold)
On the (C)firefly (Em7/B)platform

A (D7/F#)violent hash (Dm/F)smoker
Shook a (Am/E)chocolate (Am7/G)machine,
In(D7/F#)volved in an (Dm/F)eating scene.(hold)

(C)Smashing into (Em7/B)neon
(Am)Streets in their (Am7/G)stonedness,
(D7/F#)Smearing their (Dm/F)eyes
On the (Am/E)crazy colour (Am7/G)goddess,
(D7/F#)Listening to (Dm/F)sounds
Of (C)Mingus (Em7/B)mellow fan(Am)tastic,(Am7/G)
(D7/F#)"My, (Dm/F)my", they (Am/E)sigh,(Am7/G)
(D7/F#)"My, (Dm/F)my", they (Am/E)sigh.(Am7/G)  (Am/F#)  (Dm/F)

(C)In doll house (Em7/B)rooms
With (Am)coloured lights (Am7/G)swinging,
(D7/F#)Strange music (Dm/F)boxes
(Am/E)Sadly (Am7/G)tinkling,
(D7/F#)Drink in the (Dm/F)sun
(C)Shining (Em7/B)all a(Am7/G)round you,
(D7/F#)"My, (Dm/F)my", they (Am/E)sigh,(Am7/G)
(D7/F#)"My, (Dm/F)my", they (Am/E)sigh.(Am7/G)  (Am/F#)  (Dm/F)
 - Instrumental verse -

(D7/F#)"My, (Dm/F)my", they (Am/E)sigh.(Am7/G)  (Am/F#)  (Dm/F)


The ma(C)gician, he (Em7/B)sparkles
In (Am)satin and (Am7/G)velvet,
You (D7/F#)gaze at his (Dm/F)splendor
With (Am/E)eyes you've not (Am7/G)used yet.
I (D7/F#)tell you his (Dm/F)name is
(C)Love, (Em7/B)Love, (Am)Love.(Am7/G)
(D7/F#)"My, (Dm/F)my", they (Am/E)sigh,(Am7/G)
(D7/F#)"My, (Dm/F)my", they (Am/E)sigh.(Am7/G)
(D7/F#)"My, (Dm/F)my", (Am)sigh.

Repeat Part 2 Verse and Chorus with the lyrics( You need to play chorus 2x)

In dull house rooms with coloured lights swingin'
Strange music boxes sadly tinklin'
Drink in the sun shining all around you.
"My, my", they sigh,
"My, my", they sigh, mm mm.
"My, my", they sigh,
"My, my", they sigh.
The magician, he sparkles in satin and velvet,
You gaze at his splendour with eyes you've not used yet.
I tell you his name is Love, Love, Love.
"My, my", they sigh,
"My, my", they sigh.
"My, my" - sigh.
