SILVER SPOON
Paul Stanley, Vini Poncia

[Rhy. Fig 1] (4x)

[Rhy. Fig 2 w/ Intro solo]
[Rhy. Fig 2]
I ain't lookin' like nobody's fool, save it for somebody else
And I ain't makin' any desperate move, 'till I'm satisfied myself
I ain't waitin' for no invitation, I just wanna walk on thru
[Rhy. Fig 3a]
I never needed anybody, and like my daddy said

[Rhy. Fig 4 w/ Riff 1]I wasn't born with a silver spoon, nowhere to hide in a crowded room
I see the attitude that's in your eyes, I got no reason to apologize
'Cos what's so special 'bout a girl like you
[Rhy. Fig 1]
With a silver spoon

[Rhy. Fig 2 w/ Riff 2]
[Rhy. Fig 2]
In a city where the buildings rise, I was just another face
But mama told me when somebody dies, no one else can take your place
[Rhy. Fig 3a]
I never needed anybody, and like my daddy said

[Rhy. Fig 4 w/ Riff 1]I wasn't born with a silver spoon, nowhere to hide in a crowded room
I see the attitude that's in your eyes, I got no reason to apologize
'Cos I've got something for a girl like you
[Rhy. Fig 1]
With a silver spoon

[Solo over Rhy. Fig 2]
[Rhy. Fig 3b]
I always knew I'd be somebody, I kept it in my head
I never needed anybody, and like my daddy said

[Rhy. Fig 4 w/ Riff 1]I wasn't born with a silver spoon, nowhere to hide in a crowded room
I see the attitude that's in your eyes, I got no reason to apologize
'Cos I've got something for a girl like you
[Rhy. Fig 1] (2x)
Girl like you, with a silver spoon

[Rhy. Fig 2 w/ Rhy. Fig 5 and Riff 3]"Don't try to tell me where you're going or what you'll do,
'cause where I'm from... Everybody's somebody. Hey!"

[Rhy. Fig 2]
You've got everything bur much to soon
I wasn't born with a silver spoon
Everything u wanted underneath the moon
I wasn't born with a silver spoon
