Where Do You Go to, My Lovely? - chords, tab and comments

April 1969, Peter Sarstedt released this song. It rapidly became one of the most frequently played singles for years, due to its smooth and simple style, catchy 3/4 beat and a production far better than what was usual at that time. The lyrics are not only really good: they are seemingly also introspective - even though they are a common and everlasting reminder of never to forget or deny your origin. New Delhi-born Sarstedt never managed to follow up this hit, though he has continued his songwriting and performing for more than 40 years now. That man is underestimated! Turn your flash player on, and visit his website - just click the picture below - among other stuff, he's left us a lot of his songs to listen to.
G             G/F#     Bm

and you dance like Zizi Jeanmaire
       G             Gmaj7_1     Bm
your clothes are all made by Balmain
             C            Am             D              Bm  Am7  D7
and there's diamonds and pearls in your hair  yes there are
     G       G/F#     Bm
you live in a fancy apartment
          C        Am       D7
off the Boulevard Saint-Michel
           G        Gmaj7_1          Bm
where you keep your Rolling Stones records
        C        Am      D7           Bm  Am7  D7
and a friend of Sacha Distel  yes you do

     G            Gmaj7_1  Bm      C                        D7
but where do you go to my lovely when you're alone in your bed
G            Gmaj7_1         Bm
tell me the thoughts that surround you
   C                        D7         Bm  Am7  D7
I want to look inside your head  yes I do

         C          D7           G
:/:cause I can look inside your head
The G major seventh and G/F# chord is not nescessary. Sarstedt himself doesn't play it, neighter the A minor. In fact he plays the song C major, but I prefer it this way. Ok, do what you want.
