Verse 2:

 2: Did you ever bave to finally decide

 4: to coda
        Did you ever have to finally decide 

Chorus 1:

Sometimes there's one with big blue eyes, cute as a bunny
With hair down to here and plenty of money
     C             A7               G          E7
And just when you think she's that one in the world
Your heart gets stolen by some mousy little girl and...

 repeat verse 1

 guitar solo over verse cbords

Chorus 2:

Sometimes you really dig a girl the moment you kiss her
And then you get distracted by her older sister
When in walks her father, and takes you in line
And says "better go home, son, and make up your mind"

 repeat verse 2

Coda:   (repeat last bar of intro)
