F                   Am/E     F          C/G
Take your tiny feet out of your mother?s shoes
   Dm              Dm            Dm7         C7
Or there?s is going to be a terrible scene
F                   Am/E     F             C/G
It?s not just a lipstick drawn on crooked when they
Dm            Dm
Find how wicked we are
A                Edim          F
How wicked we have been
A                       Dm
How I?ve been tempted

F                           C/G G  F
How you tripped at every step
                         Dm                    F            Dm
You tripped at every step, you tripped at every step
      F                            Dm G/D   F
Oh, how you tripped at every step

F                      Am/E           F      C/G
There?s a merry tune that starts in "I" and ends
  Dm              Dm               Dm7          C7
In "You", like many famous pop songs do
F                      Am/E     F         C/G
You would sing along with little tell-tale staggers
Dm         Dm
While balancing on daggers
A                      Edim   F
Thou they were killing you
A                       Dm
You looked so deadly

F                         C/G G  F
As you tripped at every step
                        Dm                     F            Dm
You tripped at every step, you tripped at every step
      F                            Dm G/D   F
Oh, how you tripped at every step


      G#                   Fm7         C#6           C7
And I would try to catch you anytime you call
         Fm7                                                    D#7
Only you drank that potion and went out of control
               G#          Fm7                 C#6       C7
There?s nothing to stop you so how can you fall
 F                        Dm
Let me take your hand
D#/A#                         G/B
Put down that frying pan

F                        Am/E        F             C/G
Darkness would become me, underneath the table
Dm      Dm             Dm7          C7
As the fury raged around the house
F                      Am/E       F       C/G
Your despairing tread was angry and unstable
Dm   Dm
You never suspected
   A               Edim      F
Just as this cartoon mouse
A            Dm
Went undetected

F                         C/G G  F
As you tripped at every step
                        Dm                     F          Dm
You tripped at every step, you tripped at every step
      F                            Dm G/D   F
Oh, how you tripped at every step

F              Am/E     F             C/G
In another world of gin and cigarettes
       Dm               Dm        Dm7              C7
Those cocktail cabinets put mud in your eye
F                  Am/E    F         C/G
Maybe that is why you find it hard to see me
Dm           Dm
And if you don?t believe me
A               Edim     F
Before you start to cry
A                Dm
"Don?t eve leave me."

F                         C/G G  F
As you tripped at every step
                        Dm                     F          Dm
You tripped at every step, you tripped at every step
      F                            Dm G/D   F
Oh, how you tripped at every step
