   what happened           to     the weekend I'd-
                                          -planned with you
   we didn't              even get        upstairs this time

take me to the fair         hold me close as we fly through the air
and suddenly on Sunday    it all just melted   away
and when it had gone       leaving patches of yellowing       grass
I found a coin,             but lost what I'd been looking for

      Em      D        G
      I      never     took
the advice in that     book       C           G        C
         but if you might look sir  you might learn sir you might
