[Amaj7]                                     
[B]                                     
Don't te[E]ll me you don't know what l[G#m]ove is when you're o[C#m]ld enough to
know be[G#m]tter.  When you fin[C#m]d strange hands in your sw[F#m]eater, when
your dream[G#m]boat turns o[C#]ut to be a footnote, I'm a m[F#m]an with a
mission in t[G#m]wo or three ed[B]itions, and?
(chorus)
I[E]'m g[G#m]iving you a [A]long lo[B]ok ev'ryd[E]ay, ev'ryd[G#m]ay,
ev'ryd[A]ay, ev'ryd[B]ay I write the bo[E]ok. [G#m]
[A]                                  
[B]                                  

1st Verse:
Chapter one[C#m], we didn't really get along, Chapter two[E], I think I
fe[G#m]ll in love with y[E]ou.[A]  [B]you sa[C#m]id you'd stand by me in the
middle of Chapter three, but you were u[F#m]p to your old tricks in Chapters
f[G#m]our, five, and s[B]ix, and?

(chorus)
I[E]'m g[G#m]iving you a [A]long lo[B]ok ev'ryd[E]ay, ev'ryd[G#m]ay,
ev'ryd[A]ay, ev'ryd[B]ay I write the bo[E]ok. [G#m]
[A]                                  
[B]                                    

2nd verse:

The way you walk[C#m], the way you talk and try to kiss me and laugh[E] in four
or fi[G#m]ve paragra[E]phs.[A]  [B]  [C#m]   All your compliments and your
cutting remarks are ca[F#m]ptured here in my q[G#m]uotation ma[B]rks, and?

(chorus)
I[E]'m g[G#m]iving you a [A]long lo[B]ok ev'ryd[E]ay, ev'ryd[G#m]ay,
ev'ryd[A]ay, ev'ryd[B]ay I write the bo[E]ok. [G#m]
[B]                                    

Don't te[E]ll me you don't know the dif[G#m]f'rence, betw[C#m]een a lover and a
fi[G#m]ghter.  With my p[C#m]en and my electric typewr[F#m]iter, even i[G#m]n a
perfect world where ev[C#]'ryone was equal, I'd still [F#m]own the film rights
and be wo[G#m]rking on the se[B]quel.

I[E]'m g[G#m]iving you a [A]long lo[B]ok ev'ryd[E]ay, ev'ryd[G#m]ay,
ev'ryd[A]ay, ev'ryd[B]ay I write the bo[C#m]ok.

[G#m]                                    
[A]                                    
[E]                                  
[G#m]                                    
[B]                                  

Ev'ry[E]day, ev'ry[G#m]day, ev'ry[A]day, ev'ry[B]day I write the book.
(repeat unitl fade)
