Rome Wasn't Built in a Day  Nick Lowe

Verse 1
[D]You don't know it but I've made my mind up
[D]You'll wind up in my arms
[D]First I have to break down your resistance
to my c[G]harms, Yes darling
[G]I know it won't be easy
But I won't rest until I find a w[Bm]ay
Everybody knows [G]Rome wasn't [A]built in a d[D]ay
Verse 2
[D]How I'll make it happen I'm not certain
[D]I'm working on a plan
[D]And when I get it tight you'll believe
[G]I'm your man
[D]You don't know it yet but you'll surrender
When I make my [Bm]play
But everybody knows that [G]Rome wasn't b[A]uilt in a [D]day
Verse 3
[G]I'll offer you protection, 24-hour loving affection
But it'll take time to make it r[Bm]ight
[G]Just look at what the Pharaoh did, When he built his pyramid
Everybody knows that didn't spring up over [A]night
[D]There'll be a celebration
And a silver band will [Bm]play
But everybody knows that [G]Rome wasn't [A]built in a [D]day
[G]Rome wasn't [A]built in a [D]day
