Verse II
To you I-m a toy but I could be the boy you adore
if you just let me know
Although your'e untrue I'm attracted to you all the more
why do I need you so

A little time and I ll make you mine
I ll be home I ll be beside the phone
waiting for you (3 measures on G)


A terrific song with heartbreaking lyrics. 
This is my very first posting of a tab,
