Subject: DRESSING UP by The Cure



Dressing Up

(words & music by Robert Smith)


I love this song, any time I hear it, I think of my friend Annita for some

reason (I have only known her a couple months). Anyway, I am transcribing

the -Paris- version of the song. It really does not make that much of a

difference since I have heard the original and it sounds exactly like

the -Paris- version. I broke the song up into two riffs like these:



Riff 1 (the tantalizing keyboard riff):


Bm C D E5 Em


E --------2-3-2----------|------2-3-2-------|--------------|--------------|

B ----0-3-------3-0-0-0--|--0-3-------3-0---|--------------|--------------|

G -----------------------|------------------|--------------|--------------|

D -----------------------|------------------|---2---0--2---|-5--2--0--2---|

A -2---------------------|------------------|--------------|------------2-|

E -----------------------|------------------|-0------------|--------------|



Riff 2 (The spine-tingling duo notes):


C Bm C Bm


E ---3---2--3---5---|-2--------|---3---2--3---5---|-2--------|

B ---5---3--5---7---|-3--------|---5---3--5---7---|-3--------|

G ------------------|----------|------------------|----------|

D ------------------|----------|------------------|----------|

A ------------------|----------|------------------|----------|

E ------------------|----------|------------------|----------|



Those are basically the riffs with the chords on top. The lyrics are:



{Riff 1}

Going under slowly

It never seems too late

Going under slow


{Riff 2}

Dressing up to kiss

Dressing up to touch your lips


{Riff 1}

(Dressing up, dressing up)

(Dressing up, dressing up)

I~m dressing up to dance all week

I~m dressing up to be all this


{Riff 2}

Dressing up to kiss

Dressing up to be all this


Bb A

I could eat your face

Bb A (Riff 1)

I could eat all of you

Oh this night will never let me go...


Bb A

Going under slowly

Bb A

Never seems too late

Bb A

Going under slowly

G F Em

There you pick me up again...



I usually play the chords like this:




Bm x 2 4 4 3 2

C x 3 5 5 5 x

D x 5 7 7 7 x

E5 x 7 9 9 x x

Em 0 2 2 0 0 0

Bb 6 8 8 7 x x

A 5 7 7 6 x x

G 3 2 0 0 3 3

F 1 3 3 2 1 1



(And that is all for now- Adios)
