Midnight Oil

	  		   Intro: F                 Key: F then change to F# 
  
      F                       
  That call was from the office  
        Bb                                   F 
  And I guess I?ll have to burn the midnight oil again. 
      F                                                               C (walk)     
  And hon? you know how much the boss depends on me to lend a helping hand. 
    F                             Bb                                F 
  I watch him in the mirror, as I lie and tell him I don?t know how late I?ll be. 
            F                    B C                                    F 
  While I?m puttin? on my makeup,   I?m puttin? on the one that really loves me. 
      F#                              B                                  F# 
  The girls all got together and they called to see if I could have some fun tonight. 
  F#                                                           C#  (Walk) 
  But you know me, the only thing I do is go to work and watch tv. 
    F#                            B                                 F# 
  I watch him in the mirror, as I lie and tell him I don?t know how late I?ll be. 
            F#                  C C#                                    F#  (walk)    
  While I?m puttin? on my makeup,    I?m puttin? on the one that really loves me. 
                   Bb    B                           F# 
  And tonight I?ll cheat again, and tomorrow I?ll be sorry. 
      F#                                                                 C#  (walk) 
  And I?ll feel kind of dirty ?cause I?ll have the midnight oil all over me. 
      F#                                  B                               F# 
  God knows his dream would shatter if he knew the devil had me and won?t set me free. 
            F#                  C C#                                   F# 
  While I?m puttin? on my makeup,   I?m puttin? on the one that really loves me. 
            F#                  C C#                                   F#      B F# 
  While I?m puttin? on my makeup,   I?m puttin? on the one that really loves me. 
 
  (on the "my makeup" lines, the B is an eighth note count in B-C. The C is an  
  eighth note count in C-C#.)
