A light shone in the night somewhere ahead  
D7                                  G 
Blue turned into green, then it was red.  
     C                                 F 
And, stirring the night, loud music played  
    D7                                   G F G 
The light I saw in the night was a penny arcade.  
?Step up and play?, each maching seemed to say  
as I walked round and round the penny arcade.  
?Just ring the bell on the big bagatelle  
and you?ll make all the coloured lights cascade?.  
           F                    C  
And music played in the penny arcade.  
        F                     G  
Yes, it played and it played, played all the time  
 C           F               C 
?Roll up and spend your last dime!?  
At first I thought it a dream that I was in.  
Lost , lost in a sea of glass and tin.  
But no, so dipping my hand in the back of my jeans,  
I grabbed a handful of coins to feed the machines.  
C           F   
Roll up and spend your last, (2X)  
C           F               C     
roll up and spend your last dime!?
