Verse 1
|-Riff-> |-Riff->
Standing at the door of the Pink Flamingo crying in the rain
|-Riff->
It was a kind of so-so love
|-Riff->
And I'm going to make sure it doesn't happen again
|-Riff-> |-Riff->
You and I had to be, the standing joke of the year
|-Riff->
You were a run around, a lost and found
|-Riff->
And not for me, I feel
Chorus
[Em]Take your [G]hands off [Bm]me, h[C]ey[D]
[Em]I don't be[G]long to y[Bm]ou, you [C]see[D]
[Em]Take a lo[G]ok at my f[Bm]ace, for the l[C]ast t[D]ime
[Em]I never knew you[*F#]   [G]you never knew me
[Bm]Say hello goodb[C]ye[D]
|-Riff-> |-Riff->
Say hello and wave goodbye
Verse 2
|-Riff->
We try to make it work, you in a cocktail skirt
|-Riff->
And me in a suit, but it just wasn't me
|-Riff->
You're used to wearing less, and now your life's a mess
|-Riff->
So insecure you see
|-Riff->
Well I've put up with all the scenes,
|-Riff->
But this is one scene that's going to be played my way
Repeat Chorus
|-Riff-> |-Riff->
Under the deep red lights, I can see the make-up sliding down
|-Riff->
Well hey little girl you will always make up
|-Riff->
So take off that unbecoming frown
|-Riff-> |-Riff->
As for me well, I'll find someone who's not going cheap in the sale
|-Riff->
A nice little housewife, who'll give me the steady life
|-Riff->
And not keep going off the rails
Repeat Chorus
Repeat Riff and adlib vocal
[*F#] Note- Just hit the Top 2 strings [F#-A] Once. It really has a nice effect.
