Artist: Paula Abdul
Song: Straight Up
Tabbed by:  Chris Broad (c_broad78@hotmail.com)

I came across a YouTube video of this tune.  If you're looking at this tab, then you've
seen the one I'm talking about.  I finally decided to take the time and tab this one
 If you look at the video, then you'll know this is 100% correct.  He does a little more 
what's here, but this tab should at least be good for a laugh if you're ever
at a party, or whatever.  But enough of my ranting, enjoy!

Strumming: Em   C   D   Em  (x1)

Verse 1:

Em         C
Lost in a dream
            D           Em
Don't know which way to go
   Em                   C
If you are all that you seem
     D                   Em
Then baby I'm moving too slow


Prechorus:

Em
I've been a fool before
             C
Wouldn't like to get my love caught
                D
In the slammin' door
How about some information--please


Chorus:

Em
Straight up now tell me
                      C
Do you really want to love me forever oh oh oh
D                           Em
Or am I caught in a hit and run
Em
Straight up now tell me
               C
Is it gonna be you and me together oh oh oh
D                   Em
Are you just having fun


Verse 2:

Em              C
Time's standing still
        D              Em
Waiting for some small clue
  Em           C
I keep getting chills
       D                  Em
When I think your love is true


Prechorus:

Em
I've been a fool before
         C
Wouldn't like to get my love caught
                D
In the slammin' door
How about some information--please


Chorus:

Em
Straight up now tell me
                      C
Do you really want to love me forever oh oh oh
D                           Em
Or am I caught in a hit and run
Em
Straight up now tell me
               C
Is it gonna be you and me together oh oh oh
D                   Em
Are you just having fun


Bridge:

Em                C
You're so hard to read
         D
You play hide and seek
                 Em
With your true intentions
Em                     C
If you're only playing games
                  D    Em (p.m.)
I'll just have to say--bye bye bye bye bye bye bye bye bye

Em (p.m.)
Do do you love me (do you love me)
Do do you love me (do you love me)
Do do you love me (do you love me)
Do do you love me (do you love me)


Chorus (Outro)

Em
I've been a fool before
         C
Wouldn't like to get my love caught
                D
In the slammin' door
Are you more than hot for me
Or am I just a page in your history
Em
I don't mean to make demands
                             C
But the word and the deed go hand in hand
D
   How about some information--please

Straight up now tell me

Do you really want to love me forever oh oh oh
D                           Em
Or am I caught in a hit and run
Em
Straight up now tell me
               C
Is it gonna be you and me together oh oh oh
D                   Em
Are you just having fun
