Intro:  Bm7  D  A  G   Bm7  D  A  G   Bm7  Bm7  Bm7  F# C9 (Stop) 
Bm7     D        A         G9 
Red sun, go down way over dirty town 
Bm7             D             A       E9 
Starlings are sweeping around crazy shoals 
Bm7         D                   A                          G9 
Yes, and a girl is there, high heeling across the square 
Bm7                 D                          A              E9 
The wind it blows around in her hair, and the flags upon the poles 
Waiting in the crowd to cross at the light 
                     G     F#m7          Bm7   F#m7   Bm7   F#   C9 
She looks around to find a face she can like. 
Bm7          D           A                        G9 
Church bell, clinging on, trying to get a crowd, Evensong 
Bm7                D        A              E9 
Nobody cares to depend upon, the chime it plays 
Bm7                        D                   A                   G9 
They're all in the station, praying for trains, the congregation's, late again 
Bm7                 D             A                E9 
It's getting darker, all the time, these flagpole days 
Drunk old soldier he gives her a fright 
                 G      F#m7   Bm7   F#m7   Bm7   F#   C9 
He's crazy lion howling for a fight. 
Bm7           D               A                    G9 
Strap hanging, gunshot sound, door slamming on the, overground 
Bm7                D              A                 E9 
The starlings are tough, but the lions are made of stone 
Bm7                   D          A                               G9 
Her evening paper is horror torn, but there's hope later for, capricorns 
Bm7                       D           A              E9 
Her lucky stars give her just enough, ... to get her home 
Then she's reading about a swing to the right 
                              G     F#m7   Bm7   F#m7   Bm7   F#   C9 
But she's thinking about a stranger in the night 
G                       A    G                        A 
I'm thinking about the lions, I'm thinking about the lions 
G                     A       Bm7   F#m7    Bm7   F#m7    Bm7   F#m7    Bm7 
A   fade out 
What happened to the lions, tonight       (tonight)    (tonight)
