This is my response to the Movie Title Challenge.
I was given "The Shining"
INTRO (G) (D) (C) (G)
My (Em) dream girl agreed to go out with me
(D) How lucky can this shy boy be
We (Em) spent a couple of (G) nights wining and (D)dining
(Em) Talked a lot about TV shows
So (D) our differences were not exposed
It (G) all went well till we (D) went to see "The (Em)Shining"
She had (Em) said she liked "The Living Dead"
Would a (D) horror movie be the way to her bed?
A (Em) movie festival (G) was my silver (D) lining
(Em) Stanley Kubrick, now he's a safe bet
But that (D) evening I was soon to regret
I (G)cursed the night I (D)took her to see "The (Em)Shining"
"The (Am) Shining" - she was mortified!
(Em) How was I to know she'd had a twin that died?
"The (Am) Shining" - she was not amused
(D) How was I to know that she had been abused?
"The (Am) Shining" - only made her sad
(Em)How was I to know she'd had a dad who'd gone mad?
"The (Am) Shining" - she thought I must be crazed
But (G) how was I to (D) know
she once got (C) lost in a (G)maze! (G) (D) (C) (G)
She (Em) sat through the film till the final frame
"The (D) worst I've ever seen!" she at last proclaimed
Pro(Em)ceeding to outline the (G)scenes she identified (D)with
She a(Em)ccused me of torturing her for fun
And (D)left the building at a hell of a run
(G)Left me thinking what (D)I'd commit sui(Em)cide with
"The (Am) Shining" - she shot me down in flames
We (Em) should have seen that one by Henry James
"The (Am) Shining" - the bear man made her laugh
(D)But she nearly choked me in the scene with the bath
"The (Am) Shining" - how foolish of me
I (Em) wish I'd shared Danny's telepathy
"The (Am) Shining" - She thinks I am a creep
I (G) guess we won't be (D) going to see (C)"Doctor (G)Sleep"
