[Dm]I .[C] .[Dm] . Who to[Dm]ok t[C]he money?[Dm] Who to[Dm]ok t[C]he money [Dm]away?[Dm] [C] [Bb] [A]
[Dm]I .[C] .[Dm] . It's a[Dm]lways[C] showti[Dm]me Here a[Dm]t the[C] edge o[Dm]f the stage[Dm] [C] [Bb] [A]
[Dm]O - [C]U - [Dm]T [Dm]But [C]no hard [Dm]feelings [Dm]What [C]do you [Dm]know? [Dm]Take you [C]a-[Bb]way[A]
[Dm]We'r[C]e be[Dm]ing [Dm]take[C]n [Dm]for a [Dm]ride[C] [Dm] [Dm]aga[C]in[Bb] [A]

[Dm]I got a girl[C]friend with [Dm]bows in her hair [C]
And [Dm]nothing is better [C]than that [Dm] [C] [Bb] [A]is it?
Down, down in the basement we hear the sound of machines
I, I, I'm driving in circles come to my senses sometime
Why, why, why, why start it over? Nothing was lost, everything's free
I don't care how impossible it seems
Somebody calls you but you cannot hear get closer to be far away
Only one look and that's all that it takes maybe that's all that we need
All that it takes, I'll bet it's right, all it takes if it's right
I got a girlfriend that's better than that and she goes wherever she likes
there she goes
I got a girlfriend that's better than that now everyone's getting involved
She's moving up going right through my heart we might not ever get caught
Going right through try to stay cool going through, staying cool
I got a girlfriend that's better than that and nothing is better than you,
wait a minute
I got a girlfriend thats better that this but you don't remember at all
As we get older and stop making sense you won't find her waiting long
Stop making sense, stop making sense stop making sense, making sense
I got a girlfriend she's better than that and nothing is better than this,
is it?
Repeat main riff about 6 times & fade out.
