[Intro]

Am F Dm G                                       
          Sha la la la la la la         
 Am        F   G                 G
uh huh...


[Verse 1]

Am                          F      Dm           G
I was down at the New Amsterdam staring at this yellow-haired girl
    Am                        F                     G
Mr. Jones strikes up a conversation with this black-haired flamenco dancer
Am                          F       Dm                      G
She dances while his father plays guitar.  She's suddenly beautiful
   Am               F      G
We all want something beautiful, I wish I was beautiful

  Am                       F
So come dance this silence down through the morning
Dm                  G       Am    F         G                   
        Sha la la la la la la la  yeah          uh huh...
Am        F         Dm                   G
Cut up, Maria!  Show me some of them Spanish dances
Am          F       G
Pass me a bottle, Mr. Jones
Am           F    Dm                 G
Believe in me.  Help me believe in anything
 Am               F                 G
'Cause I want to be someone who believes


[Chorus 1]

C    F       G
Mr. Jones and me tell each other fairy tales
C                            F
Stare at the beautiful women
G
"She's looking at you.  Ah, no, no, she's looking at me."
C                  F                    G
Smiling in the bright lights, coming through in stereo
     C         F            G
When everybody loves you, you can never be lonely


[Verse 2]

Am                  F     Dm                    G
I will paint my picture.  Paint myself in blue and red and black and gray
Am                         F                      G
All of the beautiful colors are very, very meaningful
     Am                          F         Dm     G             
(you know) Gray is my favorite color I felt so symbolic yesterday
Am              F                 G
If I knew Picasso I would buy myself a gray guitar and play


[Chorus 2]

C   F        G
Mr. Jones and me look into the future
C                          F
Stare at the beautiful women
G
"She's looking at you.  Uh, I don't think so.  She's looking at me."
C                    F    G
Standing in the spotlight I bought myself a gray guitar
     C            F        G                  Am
When everybody loves me, I will never be lonely


[Bridge]

     Am          Fmaj7
I will never be lonely
                  Am     G
I will never gonna be lonely


[Verse 3]

Am                          F
I want to be a lion.  Everybody wants to pass as cats
Am                                                G
We All want to be big, big stars, but we got different reasons for that.
Am                               F
Believe in me because I don't believe in anything
    Am                                   G
And I want to be someone to believe, to believe, to believe.


[Chorus 3]

C   F        G
Mr. Jones and me stumbling through the barrio
  C                              F
Yeah we stare at the beautiful women
 G
"She's perfect for you, man, there's got to be somebody for me."
C                    F
I want to be Bob Dylan
   G
Mr. Jones wishes he was someone just a little more funky
     C           F         G
When everybody loves you, son, that's just about as funky as you can be.

C    F       G
Mr. Jones and me staring at the video
 C                   F               G
When I look at the television, I want to see me staring right back at me.
C                       F                       G
We all want to be big stars, but we don't know why, and we don't know how.
   C               F                        G
But when everybody loves me, I'm going to be just about as happy as I can be.

C   F           G
Mr. Jones and me, we're gonna be big stars.....

Very good work but I think maybe one single chord needs to be changed - there is an F chord nissing above the "I will never be lonely" line as written below...:
Am
When everybody loves me, I will never be lonely
F
I will never be lonely
Am G
Said I'm never gonna be... lonely
Am F
I want to be a lion. Everybody wants to pass as cats

timing's off, but other than that it's good.
