Carlene-crd  Phil Vassar

       [E]    [A]    [B]   [C#m]           [E]    [A]    [B]  [E]I was lousy at [C#m]math, a f[A]ailed hist[B]orian
[E]Carlene [C#m]was the v[A]aledict[B]orian
I was t[E]he quarter[C#m]back in the b[A]ack of c[B]lass
She [E]was the whiz [C#m]kid in h[A]orned rim g[B]lasses[E] [A] [B]
[E]It's been a long [C#m]time since I[A]'ve been ar[B]ound
[E]Since I stepped [C#m]foot on [A]my old st[B]omping ground
[E]I ended [C#m]up by the o[A]ld school y[B]ard
And this r[E]ed head pulls [C#m]up in a b[A]lue sports [B]car
And says, "[F#m]I bet you d[E]on't remember,[A] I guess it's b[B]een forever."
[F#m]It took a s[G#m]econd to p[A]ut it all to[B]gether and I said...
Chorus:
[E]Ooh la [B]la la [A]la la
Lo[B]oking g[E]ood Carl[A]ene[C#m] [B]
[E]Woh my [B]my my [A]my my
[B]Times been [E]good to[C#m] you
If you k[A]now what I m[B]ean
[F#m]Girl you glitter like H[E]ollywood
Good [F#m]gosh Car[G#m]lene
You s[A]ure are l[B]ookin good[E] [A] [B] [C#m] [E] [A] [B]
[E]She said, “[C#m]Hop in let's [A]go for a [B]spin
Tell me w[E]hatcha been [C#m]doing boy and w[A]here you b[B]een”
I said, “[E]I write s[C#m]ongs, you p[A]robably didn't k[B]now, but I
[E]Finally got a[C#m] couple out on [A]country [B]radio”[E] [A] [B]
She said, "[E]What a s[C#m]witch, a[A]in't life fu[B]nny, I've got a
[E]Ph.[C#m]D  now I'm m[A]odeling for m[B]oney."
[E]Imagine l[C#m]ittle miss [A]4 point [B]0 just
[E]Smiling for the [C#m]camera on the c[A]over of V[B]ogue
I said, “[F#m]You've come a long way since g[E]raduation, [A]let me say with[B]out
reservation
[F#m]You've sur[G#m]passed everyo[A]ne's expect[B]ations”
CHORUS
I said, “I [C#m]hope to see you aga[B]in someday”
She said, “A[A]nother ten years is t[B]oo long to wait
[F#m]Pick me [G#m]up at my m[A]omma's at e[B]ight”
I said...
