How about candlelight chess tonight?

Hello Everyone,

Instead of a candlelight dinners let's go for candlelight chess tonight! And, of course, there will be some splendid music. Enjoy.

TEL Records released the song Chess written by Marc Oliver and published by TEL MUSIC in 1994.

The video made after the release was not played on MTV and only once on RTE television on Ian Dempsey's Beatbox although the song was a chart hit spending several weeks in the Irish top twenty.

The song features the late great Jeremy Oliver on lead guitar plus Marc Oliver on vocals,, Ruairi Andersson on bass and Dave McCune on drums although John Kinsella appears on percussion in the video and played at many of the COOL CATS gigs.

The video also features Louisa Moss, the sister of singer and guitarist Howard Moss who occasionally performed with Jeremy and Marc at their Irish gigs. They teamed up too for the highly acclaimed Eagles tributes at the Olympia Theatre in Dublin as Hotel California.

Does anyone have the exact lyrics?
