  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.]

 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
 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

 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
 Is she lonely?
 She's the only
 Bm+M6   C#        F#m      Bm / C#
 Girl in this back alleyway
 Will she shoot you?
 She won't have to
 Bm+M6    C#    F#m   F#
 You're already dead
