Verse 1:
 A           A/G       F#m7      Faug
Picture yourself in a boat on a river
      A/E        A/G      F#m7       F
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies.
 A/E      A/G           F#m7           Faug
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly,
   A/E         A/G       F#m   Dm Dm/C
A girl with kaleidoscope eyes.

 A#                    C9
Cellophane flowers of yellow and green
 F6                 A#
Towering over your head.

Look for the girl with the
 G              D7    Em   D
Sun in her eyes and she's gone.

 G            C       D7
Lucy in the sky with diamonds.

Ah...

Verse 2:
 A          A/G        F#m7       Faug
Follow her down to a bridge by a fountain,
       A/E           A/G        F#m7        F
Where rocking horse people eat marshmallow pies.
A/E        A/G           F#m7           Faug
Ev'ryone smiles as you drift past the flowers
       A/E       A/G     F#m
That grow so incredibly high.

 A#                C9
Newspaper taxis appear on the shore
 F6                   A#
Waiting to take you away.

Climb in the back with your
 G                 D7   Em     D
Head in the clouds and you're gone.

[Chorus]

Picture yourself on a train in a station
       A/E       A/G          F#m7          F
With plasticine porters with looking glass ties.
 A/E      A/G         F#m7        Faug
Suddenly someone is there at the turnstile,
