      Well I[Am] was down at the [F]New Amsterdam
Just [Dm]staring at this [G]yellow haired girl
[Am]Mr Jones strikes up a [F]conversation with a [G]black-haired flamingo dancer
You no [Am]she dancers well his [F]father plays [Dm]guitar and she’s suddenly [G]beautiful
And we [Am]all want something beautiful…man [F]I wish I was [G]beautiful lalalala
Oh, [Am]cut up [F]Maria,
Come on, [Dm]show me some of them Spani[G]sh dancers
And [Am]pass me a [F]bottle Mr Jo[G]nes
Oh, [Am]believe in [F]me, come on, [Dm]help me believe in [G]anything, cause [Am]I wanna be [F]someone
who b[G]elieves
[C]Mr J[F]ones and me tell each[G] other fairytales
And [C]we stare at the beautiful women, she’s [F]looking at you nananan[G]a, she’s looking at me
[C]Standing in this bright[F] light coming [G]through his stereo
[C]When everybody loves you…[F]you should never [G]be lonely
Well I[Am] wanna paint mysel[F]f a picture
[Dm]I wanna paint myself [G]in blue, and red, and black and grey
[Am]All the beautiful[F] colours are very very[G] meaningful
Ya, you know [Am]grey? It’s my [F]favourite colour
[Dm]I just get so confused [G]every day
but if[Am] I knew [F]Picasso, I would [G]buy myself a grey guitar and play
[C]Mr J[F]ones and me [G]look into the future
[C]We stare at all the beautiful women, man [F]she’s looking at you, [G]man I don’t think so she’s looking at me
[C]Standing in this spotlight, [F]look at me I, I got m[G]yself this grey guitar
Man when [C]everybody[F] loves me
I [G]hope I never get lonely lalalala
Yeah, I [Am]wanna be a lion
I know, I know, [F]everybody wants to pass as cats
[Am]We all wanna be big, big, big, big, big stars
Yeah [G]but then we get seconds thoughts about that
So, [Am]believe in me, man [F]I don’t believe in anything
[Am]And I don’t wanna be [G]someone to believe
You should not believe in me
           Cause [C]Mr Jo[F]nes and me, we just [G]went stumbling through the barrio
[C]We stare at all the[F] beautiful women, man she’s [G]perfect for you
There’s got to be someone for me
[C]I wanna be Bob [F]Dylan, Mr [G]Jones wishes he was someone just a little more funky
Well man [C]when everybody [F]loves you, sometime[G]s that’s just about as fucked up as you can be
[C]Well can’t you [F]hear me cause I’m[G] dreaming
[C]But I did not go[F] outside yes[G]terday
Oh, don[C]’t wake me caus[F]e I was dreaming
[G]And I might just stay inside again today
Cause M[C]r Jo[F]nes and me, we don’t see each other much[G] anymore!
