[D5]Oh, hello Mr. Soul, I dropped by to pick up a reason
For the thought that I caught that my head is the event of the season
Why in cr[G]owds just a trace of my face could seem so pl[D5]easin'
[C]I'll cop out to the change, but a s[G/B]tranger is putting the t[D5]ease on.
I was down on a frown when the messenger brought me a letter
I was raised by the praise of a fan who said I upset her
Any girl in the world could have easily known me better
She said, You're strange, but don't change, and I let her.
In a while will the smile on my face turn to plaster?
Stick around while the clown who is sick does the trick of disaster
For the race of my head and my face is moving much faster
Is it st[C]range I should change? I don't [G/B]know, why don't you a[D5]sk her?
Is it st[C]range I should change? I don't [G/B]know.[Gm/Bb] [D5]
Is it st[C]range I should change? I don't [G/B]know. [D5]
