VERSE:
    [F#m]Belinda was m[Bm]ine 'til the t[A]ime that I f[F#m]ound her

  [F#m]  Then Sue came a[Bm]long, loved me st[A]rong, that's what[F#m] I thought
  [A]  Me and [Bm]Sue,
  [A]  But that died [Bm]too.

CHORUS I:

    A girl who will s[D]tay and won't p[A]lay games beh[E]ind me

VERSE:

A part time thing
A paper ring

I know it's been done havin' one girl who loves me
Right or wrong
Weak or strong
