Kooks

David Bowie

 DDsus4DDsus4D
Will you stay in our Lovers' Story
 DDsus4DD5Dsus4D
 If you stay you won't be sorry  
 CCC/B
Cos we believe in you   
 AmDAmD
 Soon you'll grow so take a chance
 AmDAmFC
With a couple of kooks hung up on romancing

REPEAT CHORUS, INTRO

 DA
 We bought a lot of things to keep you warm and dry
 DA
And a funny old crib on which the paint won't dry
 DG
I bought you a pair of shoes
 DG
A trumpet you can blow and a book of rules
 DA
On what to say to people when they pick on you

Cos if you stay with us you're gonna be pretty kookie too

CHORUS, INTRO

And if you ever have to go to school
Remember how they messed up this old fool
Don't pick fights with the bullies or the cads
Cos I'm not much cop at punching other people's dads
And if the homework brings you down
Then we'll throw it on the fire
And take the car downtown

CHORUS (key change):
 EEsus4EEsus4E
Will you stay in our Lovers' Story
 EEsus4EE5Esus4E
 If you stay you won't be sorry  
 DDD/C#
Cos we believe in you   
 BmEBmE
 Soon you'll grow so take a chance
 BmEBmGD
With a couple of kooks hung up on romancing

REPEAT CHORUS WITH KEY CHANGE

NOTE: Chords are just approximate. Any improvements welcome.
FROM: Hunky Dory, 1971.
