       INTRO: [No guitar in tbe intro]
   ------

Day...after day
will walk...and I will play
but the day...after today
I will stop...and I will start
Play B5 A5 B5
VERSE 1:
   --------

   [B5]Why can't I get just one kiss
   [B5]Why can't I get just one kiss
   be[A5]lieve me there'd be some things that I wouldn't miss
         B5 [strum B5 once and stop]
but I look at your pants and I need a kiss
       VERSE 2: [play same as verse 1]
   --------

Why can't I get just one screw
Why can't I get just one screw
believe me I'd know what to do
but something won't let me make love to you
SOME MAJOR BASS PLAYING HERE, GUITAR PLAYS SAME TWO CHORDS!
       VERSE 3: [play same as verses 1 & 2]
   --------

Why can't I get just one fuck
Why can't I get just one fuck
I guess it's got something to do with luck
but I waited my whole life for just one
CHORUS:
   -------

   [B5]Day...after day...
   I get [A5]angry...and I will [B5]say...
   that the [B5]day...is in my sight...
   when I take a [A5]bow...and I say good[B5]night
VERSE 4:
   --------

   [B5]Mo my momma momma mo my mum
Have you kept your eye your eye on your son
   I [A5]know you've had problems your not the only one
   but [B5]when your sugar left he left you on the run
       VERSE 5: [play same as VERSE 4]
   --------

Mo my momma momma mo my mum
take a look now what your boy has done
he's walking around like he's number one
he went downtown and he got him a gun
        VERSE 6:  [play same as VERSE 4]
   --------

Don't shoot shoot shoot that thing at me
Don't shoot shoot shoot that thing at me
You know you got my sympathy
but don't shoot shoot shoot that thing at me
REPEAT VERSE 6
GUITAR-SOLO:
   ------------

I don't usually transcribe solos but this
one is very easy so...
bend these notes slightly.
      |-------------------|

| B5 |
   E|-----------------------------------------------------
   B|----------------------------------------------7------
   G|--9--9--9-9--9-9-9-9--9-7----9-9-9-9-7-7--9-9---9-7--
   D|--------------------------7--------------------------
   A|-----------------------------------------------------
   E|-----------------------------------------------------

           [A5]                           [B5]                                              
   E------------------------------------------------------|
   B-------------------------------------------7----------|
   G--7-5----7-----7-5----5-----9--7--9--7--9----9-7------|
   D------7----5-------7----7------------------------9----|
   A------------------------------------------------------|
   E------------------------------------------------------|

This solo might not be very accurate but it should give you
the general idea.
       VERSE 7: [play same as VERSE 4]
   --------

In your broken down kitchen at the top of the stairs
Can I mix in with your affairs
Share a smoke, make a joke
Grasp and reach for a leg of hope
       VERSE 8: [play same as VERSE 4]
   --------

Words to memorize, words hypnotize
Words make my mouth exercise
Words all fail the magic prize
Nothing I can say when I'm in your thighs
       VERSE 9: [play same as VERSE 4]
   --------

Mo my momma momma mo my mother
I would love to love you lover
The city's restless it's ready to pounce
it go here in your bedroom ounce for ounce
REPEAT VERSE 9
VERSE 10:
   ---------

   [B5]Said I'm giving you a decision to make
Things to lose, things to take
   [A5]Just as she was about ready to cut it up
            B5 [stop]
She said wait a minute honey I'm gonna add it up
VERSE 11:
   ---------

I'm gonna add it up
Add it up
See what you got you gotta
Add it up
and add it up
CHORUS:
   -------

   [B5]Day...after day...
   I get [A5]angry...and I will [B5]say...
   that the [B5]day...is in my sight...
   when I take a [A5]bow...and say good[B5]night
End with same chords and lots of bass playing.
