Em                Am               Em
There's a man who leads a life of danger
                                    B7
To everyone he meets, he stays a stranger
     Em                    Am
With every move he makes, another chance he takes
Em                Am            Em
Odds are he won't live to see tomorrow

      Bm      Em        Bm      Em
Secret agent man, secret agent man
        C7           B7                         Em
They've given you a number and taken away your name

  Em             Am             Em
Beware of pretty faces that you find
                                B7
A pretty face can hide an evil mind
       Em                             Am
Ah, be careful what you say or you'll give yourself away
Em                 Am            Em
Odds are you won't live to see tomorrow

      Bm      Em        Bm      Em
Secret agent man, secret agent man
        C7           B7                         Em
They've given you a number and taken away your name

      Bm      Em        Bm      Em
Secret agent man, secret agent man
        C7           B7                         Em
They've given you a number and taken away your name

Em              Am      Em
Swingin' on the Riviera one day
                                      B7
And then layin' in the Bombay alley next day
           Em                            Am
Oh no, you let the wrong word slip while kissing persuasive lips
    Em                 Am            Em
The odds are you won't live to see tomorrow

      Bm      Em        Bm      Em
Secret agent man, secret agent man
        C7           B7                         Em
They've given you a number and taken away your name
