        E                          G#m                 C#m
Don't tell me you don't know what love is when you're old enough to
       G#m                C#m                       F#m
know better.  When you find strange hands in your sweater, when
          G#m         C#                          F#m
your dreamboat turns out to be a footnote, I'm a man with a
            G#m           B
mission in two or three editions, and?

  (chorus)
 E   G#m         A      B        E         G#m
I'm giving you a long look ev'ryday, ev'ryday,
      A         B                E   G#m
ev'ryday, ev'ryday I write the book.

           C#m                                      E
Chapter one, we didn't really get along, Chapter two, I think I
  G#m              E  A B     C#m
fell in love with you.  you said you'd stand by me in the
                                       F#m
middle of Chapter three, but you were up to your old tricks in Chapters
 G#m             B
four, five, and six, and?

  (chorus)
 E   G#m         A      B        E         G#m
I'm giving you a long look ev'ryday, ev'ryday,

ev'ryday, ev'ryday I write the book.

                C#m                                            E
The way you walk, the way you talk and try to kiss me and laugh in four
     G#m       E   A B C#m
or five paragraphs.       All your compliments and your
                      F#m                G#m        B
cutting remarks are captured here in my quotation marks, and?

  (chorus)
 E   G#m         A      B        E         G#m
I'm giving you a long look ev'ryday, ev'ryday,

ev'ryday, ev'ryday I write the book.

        E                           G#m          C#m
Don't tell me you don't know the diff'rence, between a lover and a
  G#m              C#m                      F#m         G#m
fighter.  With my pen and my electric typewriter, even in a
                      C#                          F#m
perfect world where ev'ryone was equal, I'd still own the film rights
         G#m            B
and be working on the sequel.
