I/R 
Oh yeah... Sometimes it's so easy 
And sometimes I forget her 
But I want you back again 
Back again 

I/R
Maybe it's lucky 
You win some and you lose some 
Oh, when you've found a good one 
Don't you let her get away 
Don't let her go 

I/R
Oh yeah... If only I could love you 
Just the way I want to 
Oh, to have you back again 
Back again 

Chorus
G
Oh, I'm just a fool baby 
Playing Mr. Cool baby 
A
Rolling round like I got nothing much to lose 
C
But I know you and you know me 
And I know you can see 
G
So help me get my way back to you 
Back to you 

I/R
Walking past your window 
Used to mile when you'd throw 
Your sweet kisses back to me 
Back to me 
Oh yeah... Remember when I asked you 
If you'd be my one true 
Oh, it seems like yesterday 
It's yesterday 

Oh yeah, and I'm just a fool baby 
Playing Mr. Cool baby 
Rolling round like I got nothing much to lose 
But I know you and you know me 
And I know you can see 
So help me get my way back to you 
Back to you 

A                    G
I want you so take me back please 
A                    G (roll back into I/R)
Take me back, oh, to you 

I/R
If only I could love you 
Just the way I want to 
Yeah 

I'm just a fool baby 
Playing Mr. Cool baby 
Rolling round like I got nothing much to lose 
But I know you and you know me 
And I know you can see 
So help me get my way back to you 

A                    G
I want you so take me back please 
A                    G (roll back into I/R)
Take me back, oh, to you 

I/R
If only I could love you 
Just the way I want to 
Yeah 

Yeah I know baby, I know (I/R to fade…….)

Notes themselves are spot on. Just wanted to put in that your measures don't have enough notes in them. The main riff should be...

A few corrections:
Verse 1: "sometimes" should be "some days"
Verse 2: "maybe it's lucky" should be "maybe it's A GAME"
Throughout: "if only I could love you" should be "if only I could HAVE you"
Verse 4: "mile" should be "smile"
Pre-Bridge: one measure of the I/R section--segues into bridge
Bridge: A chord should be A minor, and G should have the major seventh (F#) instead of the high root (G)
