 Happy Loving Couples  Â Joe Jackson




[G] [Dm7] [G] [Dm7] [G] [Dm7] [G] [Dm7]
[G]I've just been to see my [Dm7]best friend
[G]he's got another [Dm7]girl
[G]says she's just about the [Dm7]best thing
[G]in the whole damn [Dm7]world

And he [C]says can't you see what the [G]little lady's done for me
[C]says it like he thinks I'm [Bm]blind
but the [C]things that you see ain't nece[G]ssarily the things you can [D]find


[C]Happy loving [D]couples make it look so [G]easy
[C]Happy loving [D]couples make always talk so [G]kind
[C]until the time that [D]I can do my dancing with a [G]partner
[C]those happy [D]couples ain't no friends of [G]mine
[G] [C] [D]


[G]People say I'm too damn [Dm7]fussy
[G]when it comes to [Dm7]girls
[G]happy couples say I [Dm7]must live
[G]in a lonely [Dm7]world

Wanna [C]be, wanna really be [G]what my friends pretend to be
[C]be it in my own good [Bm]time
being [C]kind to myself till I be[G]come one of two of a [D]kind

Chorus

[D]You ain't no friends of mine
[G] [C] [D]
[G] [C] [D]
[G] [C] [D]
[G]You ain't no [C]friends [D]of mine

Repeated 12 times with voice-over
[G] [C] [D]
You know what I mean
Happy loving couples
In matching lamb turtle-neck sweaters (?)
Reading Ideal Homes magazine
Yea!

Wanna [C]be, wanna really be [G]what my friends pretend to be
[C]be it in my own good [Bm]time
being [C]kind to myself till I be[G]come one of two of a [D]kind

Chorus

[D]You ain't no friends of mine
[G] [C] [D]
[G] [C] [D]
[G] [C] [D]
[G]You ain't no [C]friends [D]of mine
[G] [C] [D]
[G] [C] [D]
[G] [C] [D]
[G]You ain't no [C]friends [D]of mine
[G] [C] [D]
[G]You ain't no [C]friends [D]of mine
[G] [C] [D]
[G]You ain't no [C]friends [D]of mine
[G]
Abrupt stop, Joe saying "Right, that's enough"
