G                   Em/B     C          G/D
Take your tiny feet out of your mother?s shoes
   Bm              Em            Am7         D7
Or there?s is going to be a terrible scene
G                   Em/B     C             G/D
It?s not just a lipstick drawn on crooked when they
Bm            Em
Find how wicked we are
B                Bdim          C
How wicked we have been
E                       Am
How I?ve been tempted

C                           G/D D  C
How you tripped at every step
                         Em                    C            Em
You tripped at every step, you tripped at every step
      C                            Bm D/A   C
Oh, how you tripped at every step

G                      Em/B           C      G/D
There?s a merry tune that starts in "I" and ends
  Bm              Em               Am7          D7
In "You", like many famous pop songs do
G                      Em/B     C         G/D
You would sing along with little tell-tale staggers
Bm         Em
While balancing on daggers
B                      Bdim   C
Thou they were killing you
E                       Am
You looked so deadly

C                         G/D D  C
As you tripped at every step
                        Em                     C            Em
You tripped at every step, you tripped at every step
      C                            Bm D/A   C
Oh, how you tripped at every step


      Eb                   Cm7         Ab6           G7
And I would try to catch you anytime you call
         Cm7                                                    Bb7
Only you drank that potion and went out of control
               Eb          Cm7                 Ab6       G7
There?s nothing to stop you so how can you fall
 C                        Am
Let me take your hand
Bb/F                         D/F#
Put down that frying pan

G                        Em/B        C             G/D
Darkness would become me, underneath the table
Bm      Em             Am7          D7
As the fury raged around the house
G                      Em/B       C       G/D
Your despairing tread was angry and unstable
Bm   Em
You never suspected
   B               Bdim      C
Just as this cartoon mouse
E            Am
Went undetected

C                         G/D D  C
As you tripped at every step
                        Em                     C          Em
You tripped at every step, you tripped at every step
      C                            Bm D/A   C
Oh, how you tripped at every step

G              Em/B     C             G/D
In another world of gin and cigarettes
       Bm               Em        Am7              D7
Those cocktail cabinets put mud in your eye
G                  Em/B    C         G/D
Maybe that is why you find it hard to see me
Bm           Em
And if you don?t believe me
B               Bdim     C
Before you start to cry
E                Am
"Don?t eve leave me."

C                         G/D D  C
As you tripped at every step
                        Em                     C          Em
You tripped at every step, you tripped at every step
      C                            Bm D/A   C
Oh, how you tripped at every step

Original tune is in D-Major!
