  Transcriber's Note:
  [Beware of the m/7/6 thingies which pop up here and there - they're the
  most sense I could make of the music.  Interpret them as you will.  I play
  Am+M6 as 004210, Bm+M6 as 444432 (with a lot of thumb, believe me) and
  Em7/Em+M6 as 020000 / 024000.]
 
 Intro:
 F#m  -  Bm  -
 Bm+M6  C#  F#m  Bm / C#
 
 1.
 F#m         -     Bm        -
 Night-time lady,  she says maybe
 Bm+M6     C#        F#m        Bm / C#
   In the all-night laundromat
 
 F#m        -     Bm       -
 Wait one minute,  I have seen her
 Bm+M6    C#     F#m   F#
 She's a billionaire
 
 Chorus:
 
 Bm            D       E      A
    She was a hotel detective
                Bm        D
 But now she's gotten promoted
 G               G7            C
   I don't think it was the money
 Am            Am7         Am+M6      B7
    She didn't care about expensive things
     Em                Em7           Em+M6    F#
 No furs or pearls or fancy cars or diamond rings
 
 |: Bm  D  E  A Bm  D :|  x6
 She was a hotel detective
 But now she's better connected
 She didn't have to change anything
 Just the stencil on her window
 
 She used to be quite a lady
 She drove the underworld crazy
 But now she goes insane in her way
 When it suits her occupation
 
 She read that motel directive
 It told her she was defective
 I guess she found an easier way
 Up the ladder and she took it
 
 Bm        D        E          F#m   -
 Now that lady is running the world
 
 2.
 Is she lonely?
 She's the only
 Girl in this back alleyway
 
 Will she shoot you?
 She won't have to
 You're already dead
 
 Chorus
