Graham Parker Heat Treatment Lyrics

Last updated:

Thanks to Robert Watson robert@gcmac.demon.co.uk
for a complete revision of this chart.

Robert's chart has the Em over the word "treatment"...
I like playiong G G Em as below. Try it (both ways) and
let me know what you prefer.

CHORUS
Intro: Horns over G Em G Em G Em C D (twice)
Bass : (G D E E D E D) x 3 C D
G (G) Em G Em
Heat treatment baby sweet treatment baby
G Em C D
Heat treatment while the flame is burning
G Em G Em
Heat treatment baby sweet treatment baby
G Em C D
Heat treatment while the world is turning
G Em G Em C D
around round around round around

VERSE
G C D G
Now when the sun fades out and the street lights rise
G C D G
News makes print and a baby cries
G C D G
That's when you might find me waiting on the day
G C D G
Uh huh baby I'm wasting away

REPEAT CHORUS

VERSE
Well a out in the jungle there's a war going down
You wind up eating all the friends you've found
But you know and I know and it's understood
Let's get out while the gettings good

CHORUS (then after " the world is turning")

BRIDGE
Am D
I tried to eat but I could not swallow
Am D
Mouth got dry and my tongue got hollow
Am D Em
When you call babe you know I'll follow
C D G
In your love baby I want to wallow yeah
G G G C D
Oh yeah oh yeah oh yeah - yeah eah
F G F G F G C D A
eah --- Huh
(modulates to A)
A F#m
I want to burn baby (SIX TIMES)
A F#m D E
I want to burn while the flame is burning

The riff played here by the bass and guitar sounds like
F# F E A E F F# repeated with an extra A sometimes before the E F F#

in tab on the bottem 2 strings
A ------0------ repeated
E 2-1-0---0-1-2

REPEAT CHORUS with A F#m, D E and fade
