You were [Am]born too late, I was b[E]orn too soon
[F]Every time I look at that [G]ugly moon
It reminds me of [C]you, it re[F]minds me of y[C]ou

D'you like American music? (We like American music)
I like American music (Baaaabyyyyy)
D'you like American music (We like all kinds of music)
But I like American music best (Baaaabyyyy)
You were [Am]born too late, I was [E]born too late
But [F]every time I look at that [G]ugly lake, it reminds me of [C]me
It [F]reminds me of [C]meeee (do you like American Music)
It [F]reminds me of [C]meeee (I can hear the music)
It [F]reminds me of [C]meeee (sweet, sweet music)
 (F-C repeats, getting more frenetic, and finish)
