[verse; piano]

Bbm                                                Absus4              Ab
  I was just thirty-four years old and I was still wandering in a haze
F#sus4                           F#           
  I was wondering why everyone I met seemed like they were 
Ebsus4          Eb
Lost in a maze

Bbm                                                   
  I don't know why I thought I should have some kind of 
Absus4                    Ab
Divine right to the blues
     F#sus4                      F#           
It's sympathy not tears people need when they're the 
Ebsus4         Eb
Front page sad news.

[enter acoustic]
    Bbsus2                      Ebmaj7
The incense burned away and the stench began to rise
    Bbsus2                       Ebmaj7
And lovers now estranged avoided catching each others' eyes

    Fmaj7                Cmaj7               Fmaj7           Cmaj7
And girls who lost their children cursed the men who fit the coil
    Fmaj7           Cmaj7               Fmaj7         Cmaj7
And men not fit for marriage took their refuge in the oil
   Gmaj7            Dmaj7                Gmaj7            Dmaj7
No one respects the flame quite like the fool who's badly burned
     Gmaj7           Dmaj7             C11
From all this you'd imagine that there must be something learned

[piano: (C   Csus2   C5   Csus2   C   Csus2   C5   Csus2   )]

[chorus; enter electric]
C                                     Fadd9
Slit skirts, Jeanie never wears those slit skirts
                         Am7            
And I don't ever wear no ripped shirts 
                                 Bbsus2
Can't pretend that growing older never hurts.

C                                 Fadd9
Knee pants, Jeanie never wears no knee pants
                             Am7 
Have to be so drunk to try a new dance
                       Bbsus2
So afraid of every new romance

D
Slit skirts, slit skirt 
                           Bm
Jeanie isn't wearing those slit skirts, slit skirt 
                           Gmaj7                    
She wouldn't dare in those slit skirts, slit skirt 
                                 C11
Wouldn't be seen dead in no slit skirt

D                                           Bm
Romance, romance, why aren't we thinking up romance? 
                         Gmaj7
Why can't we drink it up true heart romance 
                      C11
Just need a brief new romance

Let me tell you some more about myself, you know I'm sitting at home just now.
The big events of the day are passed and the late TV shows have come around.
I'm number one in the home team, but I still feel unfulfilled. 
A silent voice in her broken heart complaining that I'm unskilled. 

And I know that when she thinks of me, she thinks of me as him, 
But, unlike me, she don't work off her frustration in the gym.

Recriminations fester and the past can never change 
A woman's expectations run from both ends of the range

Once she walked with untamed lovers' face between her legs 
Now he's cooled and stifled and it's she who has to beg

[repeat chorus]
Slit skirts, Jeanie never wears those slit skirts
And I don't ever wear no ripped shirts 
Can't pretend that growing older never hurts

Knee pants, Jeanie never wears no knee pants
We have to be so drunk to try a new dance
So afraid of every new romance

Slit skirts, slit skirt 
Jeanie isn't wearing those slit skirts, slit skirt 
She wouldn't dare in those slit skirts, slit skirt 
Wouldn't be seen dead in no slit skirt

Romance, romance, why aren't we thinking up romance? 
Why can't we drink it up true heart romance 
Just need a brief new romance

[outro solo]

Romance, romance, why aren't we thinking up romance? 
Why can't we drink it up true heart romance 
Just need a brief new romance
