Repeat verse. 02:51

 

Ringing in the changes,

Chiming like a church bell

Laughing in the mirror,

Phantoms of the hotel...

Oh well, we'll make music in dreamland tonight...

 

Driving like a madman

Trying to make a fast time

Theatre full of strangers

Waiting for a new rhyme...

No time to make music in dreamland tonight...

 

 

It's time to make music in dreamland tonight...

Your mine and my music's in dreamland...

Finale, with guitar solo.

If you are a beginner here's some help with finger positioning.

 

t = thumb - like, duh 

i = index - finger you point with

m = middle - you shouldn't point with that one ;-) 

r = ring finger - wedding ring, naturally

p = pinky - little finger

 

You can use different fingers if you want, of course!

 

Rhythm chords in brackets.
