Becoming More Like Alfie  The Divine Comedy

[Am] [A4] [Am] [Am(9)]  
[Am]Once[A4] the[F7M/G]re was a
[Am]time[A4], [F7M/G]When my
[Am/F#]mind [A4/F#]lay on[F7M] hi[Em]gher things
And once there was a time
I could find pretty words to sing
But now, well now I find
It saves time to say what you mean
I know it seems so unrefined
but it's time to let off some steam
Oh come on!
[F]Everybody [D7/F#]knows that [Am]No means [Em]Yes
Just lik[F]e glasses[D7/F#] come free on the N. H[Dm7/G]. S. [G]
But the [F]more I [D7/F#]look through them th[Am]e more I see[Em]
I'm be[F]coming [G(6)]more like [C]Alfie
Once there was a time
When a kind word could be enough
And once there was a time
I could blindfold myself with love
But not now - now I'm resigned
To the kind of life I had reserved
For other guys less smart than I
Y'know - the kind who will always end up with the girls
And besides
Everybody knows that No means Yes
Just like glasses come free on the N.H.S.
But the more I look through them the more I see
I'm becoming more like Alfie
Oh come on!
