Here's the chords/lyrics to "Baby Plays Around" from Elvis Costello's
"Spike" album. Someone requested this a while back but it's taken me
a while to get around to typing it in.

It's in CHORD format, ie run it through the CHORD program that was
recently posted and you get a nice postscript songsheet.

[A]It's not [A7]open [D]  to discussion any[Dsus]more,
[A]She's out[B/D#] again tonight, [E]  And I'm a[C#m7]lone once more,
[D]She's all I [Bm7]have [Bm7-5]worth [C#m7] waiting [F#m]for,
but [B/D#]baby plays A[Bm7]round. [E]
[A]And so it [A/G]seems I've always [D/F#]been the last to [Dm/F]know,
[A]To hold [B/D#]on to that girl, [E]  I had to [C#m7]let her go.
[D/F#]  I wish to [Dm/F] God I [C#m7]didn't love her [F#m]so,
[B/D#]  'Cause [E11]baby plays A[A]round.

[A/G]I try to be [D/F#]strong, [A7/E] hold on to my [D]pride.[C#m7-5]
[Em7] She doesn't [A7]even know it's [D]wrong,
how much I [D#^o]hurt inside.[F^o]
And heaven knows I've tried but [F#m]
ba[Bm7]by plays a[Dm]round, just a [Esus]play thing.[F^o]
Its hard to reconcile the facts I'm [E7]facing.

[A]It's not [A7]open [D]  to discussion any[Dsus]more,
[A]She walk's[B/D#] those shiny streets, [E]  I walk the [C#m7]worn out floor.
[D]She's all I [Bm7]have [Bm7-5]worth [C#m7] living [F#m]for,

[B/D#]Baby [F6]plays, baby [D]plays A[Fmaj7]round  [F7]

[Em7]           [B7/D#]                 [Em]            [Dm7]
