D            G
I, I will be king
    D                G
And you, you will be queen
       C                        D
Though nothing will drive them away
       Am       Em            D
We can beat them just for one day
          C     G             D
We can be Heroes just for one day

    D               G
And you, you can be mean
    D                     G
And I, I'll drink all the time
             D                    G
'Cause we're lovers and that is a fact
          D                  G
Yes we're lovers and that is that
       C                      D
Though nothing will keep us together
               Am  Em            D
We could steal time just for one day
          C     G             D
We can be Heroes for ever and ever
What do you say?

D    G     D    G

D                   G
I, I wish you could swim
         D                           G
Like the dolphins, like dolphins can swim
       C                               D
Though nothing, nothing will keep us together
       Am       Em            D
We can beat them for ever and ever
             C     G             D
Oh we can be Heroes just for one day

D    G     D    G

[sing an octave higher, sound desperate]

D             G
I, I won't be king
    D                 G
And you, you won't be queen
       C                        D
Though nothing will drive them away
          Am    Em            D
We can be heroes just for one day
       C    G             D
We can be us just for one day

D          G
I, I can remember 
D               G
Standing by the wall
    D          G
The guns shot above our heads
       D                              G
And we kissed as though nothing could fall
        C                D
And the shame was on the other side
          Am       Em           D
Oh we can beat them forever and ever
               C     G             D
Then we can be Heroes just for one day

D          G
 We can be Heroes
D          G
 We can be Heroes
D          G                   D
 We can be Heroes just for one day
          G
We can be Heroes
      C                        D
We're nothing and nothing will help us
            Am   Em                   D
Maybe we're lying then you better not stay
                C    G             D
But we could be safer just for one day

FEEOWNER CROSS THE LAND 30/5/2004 - 14:25:35
Back in 1992 Bowie got a tattoo of a young Chinese girl riding a dolphin bareback apparently for Iman. NO!! Even then he'd decided Marianne was going to sail through life even though she was yet in puberty.The cross was reserved for me unfortunately tho' I'm sure M thinks shes had a raw deal too.
