Am7        D6           
Hey kids, shake it loose together
          G               
The spotlight's hitting something
                    G#dim7
That's been known to change the weather
Am7                        D
We'll kill the fatted calf tonight
                    Em
So stick around
           Am                            Bm7
You're gonna hear electric music
                            C
Solid walls of sound

Gmaj7
Say, Candy and Ronnie, have you seen them yet
     Am                                    C
Oo But they're so spaced out, Bennie and the Jets   
  Gmaj7
Oh but they're weird and they're wonderful
        Am
Oh Bennie she's really keen
                 C                     D
She's got electric boots a mohair suit
                    Em                            D   C
You know I read it in a magazine
Bb/C     C            Gmaj7    Fmaj7
Bennie and the Jets



Hey kids, plug into the faithless
Maybe they're blinded
But Bennie makes them ageless
We shall survive, let us take ourselves along
Where we fight our parents out in the streets
To find who's right and who's wrong
