I was down at the New Amsterdam staring at this yellow-haired girl

Mr. Jones strikes up a conversation with this black-haired flamenco dancer
Am 			    F 	    Dm 			    G
She dances while his father plays guitar.  She's suddenly beautiful
   Am 		    F 	   G
We all want something beautiful, I wish I was beautiful


  Am 			   F
So come dance this silence down through the morning
Dm 		    G 	    Am 	  F 	    G			*

Cut up, Maria!  Show me some of them Spanish dances

Pass me a bottle, Mr. Jones

Believe in me.  Help me believe in anything

'Cause I want to be someone who believes


C    F 	     G
Mr. Jones and me tell each other fairy tales
C 			     F
Stare at the beautiful women

"She's looking at you.  Ah, no, no, she's looking at me."

C 		   F 			G
Smiling in the bright lights, coming through in stereo
     C 	   F 		  G
When everybody loves you, you can never be lonely


Am 		    F 	  Dm 			G
I will paint my picture.  Paint myself in blue and red and black and gray
Am 			   F 			  G
All of the beautiful colors are very, very meaningful
     Am 			 F 	   Dm 	  G 		*
(you know) Gray is my favorite color I felt so symbolic yesterday
Am 		F 		  G
If I knew Picasso I would buy myself a gray guitar and play

Mr. Jones and me look into the future
C 			      F
Stare at the beautiful women

When everybody loves me, I will never be lonely

I will never be lonely
  G
I will never be lonely

I want to be a lion.  Everybody wants to pass as cats
Am 						  G
We All want to be big, big stars, but we got different reasons for that.
Am 			  	 F
Believe in me because I don't believe in anything
    Am 					 G
And I want to be someone to believe, to believe, to believe.


C   F 	     G
Mr. Jones and me stumbling through the barrio
  C 				 F

 G
"She's perfect for you, man, there's got to be somebody for me."
C 		     F
I want to be Bob Dylan
   G
Mr. Jones wishes he was someone just a little more funky

     C 	   F 		  G
When everybody loves you, son, that's just about as funky as you can be.


C    F 	     G
Mr. Jones and me staring at the video
 C 		     F 		     G
When I look at the television, I want to see me staring right back at me.
C 			F 			G
We all want to be big stars, but we don't know why, and we don't know how.
   C 		   F 			 	G
But when everybody loves me, I'm going to be just about as happy as I can be.
C   F 		G
Mr. Jones and me, we're gonna be big stars.....

Very good work but I think maybe one single chord needs to be changed - there is an F chord nissing above the "I will never be lonely" line as written below...:
Am
When everybody loves me, I will never be lonely
F
I will never be lonely
Am G
Said I'm never gonna be... lonely
Am F
I want to be a lion. Everybody wants to pass as cats
