Black and blue from passing around, Whitey says, "the Lady ain't a hit no more"
D        A              Em              G      F     D          C Bb D /C
Cecilia Amanda, I don't want to see you get like you got before
Bb                   Gm                Eb                        Gm
Another patient in a party dress yesterday, dancing on a remnant scratch
Bb                          Gm                Eb        D
In a place where lonely men pay to make their opposites match.

D            A              Em                   G       F   D   C Bb D
Little Miss Amanda wants to know how long you're going to be gone
        D              A              Em               G       F   D   C Bb D /C
And she asked me can I fix it so your record plays the rest of her song
Bb              Gm                        Eb       Gm
Because every remembrance of you has been buried below
Bb                Gm  Eb      D
Every memory that I unhappily know

D   /F#       Gm  /Bb /C   D
I'm sorry for you and your kid
    /F#        Gm                /Bb  /C D
The things you promised that you never did
    /F#                  Gm     /Bb /C 
She asked me, "Are you a pretty dancer?"
D           /F#                Gm
But I don't think I'm going to answer, oh

D                   A               Em                  G       F    D          C Bb D
black and blue from passing on now, whitey has paid you back to your daily score
       D            A         Em              G       F      D           C Bb D /C
If you got a little baby now, I don't want to see you around here no more     Ah
Bb                    Gm                Eb                           Gm
Amanda put on her new party dress yesterday, dancing to a record you scratched
Bb                       Gm           Eb        D
I'm some dealing amateur actor making opposites match
