      G                  C
I was watching, with one eye on the other side,
      D                                        G
I had fifteen people telling me to move, I got movin’ on my mind.
        G                C                            
I found shelter, in some dolls turning wheels around,
          D                             G
I've said 39 times that I love u to the beauty I have found.


          G              
Well it's, one, two, three, four, take the elevator,
       C            				   D
at the hotel Yorba I'll be glad to see you later,  
                             G       D G  
all they got inside is vacancy


          G                     C
I've been thinking, by a little place down by the lake
              D
They've got a dirty old road leading up to the house
        G
I wonder how long it will take
           G
till we're alone,
             C
sitting on a front porch of that home

D
Stompin our feet, on the wooden boards,
G
Never gotta worry about locking the door


          G        
Well its, one, two, three, four, take the elevator,
       C                                           D
at the hotel Yorba I'll be glad to see you later,
                             G        D G
all they got inside is vacancy


(---Bridge start---)
               G                      C
It might sound silly, for me to think childish thoughts like these
    D                                                   G
But I'm so tired of acting tough, and I gonna do what I please.

(---Bridge end---)


          G                          C
Let's get married in a big cathedral by a priest
        D
because if I'm the man that you love the most,
          G
You could say I do at least.


          G  
Well its, one, two, three, four, take the elevator,
       C                    			    D
at the hotel Yorba I'll be glad to see you later,
                             G
all they got inside is vacancy
         G                                         
And it's four, five six, seven, grab the umbrella,
       C                                            D
And grab hold of me cause I’m your favourite fella,
                                     G D G C G
All they got inside is vacancy

Verse 1
                    [G]
Well I’m finding it harder
        [A#]      [F]   [G]  [F][G]
to be a gentleman every day
        [A#]                   [F]
All the manners that I’ve been taught
                 [G]  [F][G]
have slowly died away
[F]
But if I held the door open for you
                   [G]
it would make your day


Chorus

[G] [A#] [F] [A#] [A] [G]
[G] [A#] [F] [A#] [A] [G]


Verse 2
[G][F][G]
[G]
You think that I care
     [A#]    [F] [G]  [F][G]
about me and only me
     [A#]                    [F]
When every single girl needs help
              [G]  [F][G]
climbing up a tree
[F]
Well I know I don’t take much
          [G]
to satisfy me


Chorus


Verse 3
[C]                         [A#]
Maybe it’s whatever’s in my hand
                  [G]
that’s distracting me
[A#]
But if I could find emotion
   [C]
to stimulate devotion
                [D]
well then you’d see


Chorus


Verse 4
Well I’m finding it hard to say
that I need you twenty times a day
I feel comfortable so baby why
don’t you feel the same?
Have a doctor come visit us
and tell us which one is sane


Verse 5
Well I never said I wouldn’t
throw my jacket in the mud for you
but my father gave it to me so
maybe I should carry you
then you said
“you almost dropped me”
so then I did
and I got mud on my shoes

Lyrics:

Fell in love with a girl
fell in love once and almost completely
she's in love with the world
but sometimes these feelings
can be so misleading
she turns and says are you alright?
I said I must be fine cause my heart's still beating
come and kiss me by the riverside,
bobby says it's fine he don't consider it cheating

Red hair with a curl
mellow roll for the flavor
and the eyes were peeping
can't keep away from the girl
these two sides of my brain
need to have a meeting
can't think of anything to do
my left brain knows that
all love is fleeting
she's just looking for something new
and I said it once before
but it bears repeating

Can't think of anything to do
my left brain knows that
all love is fleeting
she's just looking for something new
and I said it once before
but it bears repeating

Fell in love with a girl
fell in love once and almost completely
she's in love with the world
but sometimes these feelings
can be so misleading
she turns and says are you alright?
I said I must be fine cause my heart's still beating
come and kiss me by the riverside,
bobby says it's fine he don't consider it cheating

Can't think of anything to do
my left brain knows that
all love is fleeting
she's just looking for something new
and I said it once before
but it bears repeating
