Ballantines  Aimee Mann

I wasn't 100 percent sure on the lyrics when working out the chords, so I checked out a
lyirc sites but they all contained lines that just don't sound right to me when I hear
song. But having listened to it more carefully, I've come up with what I think are
lyrics below - at least closer than any of the lyric sites I consulted.
Anyway, the chords are easy and it's a fun song to play and sing along to. Enjoy
