    D                 C
The party's dull, the people stale
    G               D
and I don't want to stay.
D                 C
Why don't we just disappear?
     G               D
Come on, let's slip away.

        D   D   C G D
  Slip away
  Slip away
  Slip away

The people here are beautiful,
but they have feet of clay.
We don't need to be like them.
Come on, let's slip away.

  Slip away..

No one cares and no one hears
a single thing we say;
None to notice if we two
should up and slip away.

  Slip away..
