INTRO:
|Aadd2B    B|Aadd2B  B    |
|Aadd2B    B|Aadd2B  B G#m7|


VERSE 1:
A                Am
I'm not in love, so don't forget it,
G#m7                     C#m              C#m7            

It's just a silly phase I'm going through.
A                Am

And just because I call you up,
G#m7                 C#m                            C#m7

Don't get me wrong, don't think you've got it made.


REFRAIN 1:
A                   B
I'm not in love, no-no.
B7      E      A  E

(It's because).


VERSE 2:
A                  Am
I like to see you, but then again,
G#m7                   C#m                  C#m7

That doesn't mean you mean that much to me.
A                 Am

So if I call you, don't make a fuss,
G#m7                     C#m                 C#m7

Don't tell your friends about the two of us.


REFRAIN 2:
A                   B
I'm not in love, no-no.
B7      E      A  E

(It's because).


LONG REFRAIN & INSTRUMENTAL:

Big boys don't cry,
Aadd2B

Big boys don't cry.

Big boys don't cry.


VERSE 3:
A                   Am
I keep your picture upon the wall,
G#m7                    C#m                C#m7

It hides a nasty stain that's lyin' there.
A                   Am

So don't you ask me to give it back,
G#m7                             C#m             C#m7

I know you know it doesn't mean that much to me.

Ooh, you'll wait a long time for me,
Am          D7               Dadd2/E E  Dadd2/E  E

Ooh, you'll wait a long time.
Am          D7                   G   Em

Ooh, you'll wait a long time for me,
Am          D7               Dadd2/E E  Dadd2/E  E

It's just a silly phase I'm going through.
A                Am

And just because I call you up,
G#m7                             C#m               C#m7                             

Don't get me wrong, don't think you've got it made.

NOTES:
1.  This TAB was developed from my frustration in not finding a complete version of this epic song.  
40 years later it's great to see that 10cc reformed around Graham Gouldman in 2012 and this TAB owes much 
to the live presentation.
2.  "...In February 1975, the band announced they were splitting with Jonathan King and that they had 
signed with Mercury Records for US$1 million.  The catalyst for the deal was one song – "I'm Not in Love". 
Stewart recalled:  
    "At that point in time we were still on Jonathan King's label, but struggling. We were absolutely skint, 
the lot of us, we were really struggling seriously, and Philips Phonogram wanted to do a deal with us. 
They wanted to buy Jonathan's contract. Our manager Ric Dixon invited them to listen to what we've done. 
Head of A & R Nigel Grainge came up to our Strawberry Studio, heard the album and freaked. 
He said "This is a masterpiece, it's a done deal!". We did a five-year deal with them for five albums and 
they paid us a serious amount of money. It was Grainge's idea to release 'Life Is A Minestrone' as the 
first single holding back the big one to give us more longevity for the album. ..." "
