Intro Dm F D# Gm Bb 

Verse 1

Dm                             F
Spring was never waiting for us girl, 
                D#                          Gm   Bb
it ran one step ahead, as we followed in a dance.
Dm                                F Dm7?
Between the parted pages and were pressed,
                      D#                             Gm   Bb 
in love's hot fevered iron, like the striped pair of pants.
Dm                         Dm7
I recall the yellow cotton dress,
               D#                              Gm   Bb
foaming like a wave, on the ground around your knees.
Dm                                   F Dm7?
And birds like tender babies in your hand,
                     D#              Gm   Bb  G# Bb
and old men playing checkers, by the trees.

Chorus 1

C                                  Cmaj7
MacArthur's Park is melting in the dark, 
                            Bb 
all the sweet green iceings flowing down.
F              
Someone left the cake out in the rain.
  G     C
I don't think that I can take it. 
          Dm      
cause it took so long to bake it.
         C                      F      D#   C# D# F
And I'll never have that recipe again, oh nooo.

Verse 2

F                              Fmaj7          Dm   Bb 
There will be another song for me, for I will sing it.
 Bbm                                              Fmaj7 F
There will be another dream for me, someone will bring it.
  Bb                              
I will drink the wine while it is warm 
Gm         Bb               Am                D7
and never let you catch me looking in the sun.
    Gm                        Bb   
and after all the loves of my life, 
 Fmaj7                     Bb                       D#   G#   C  
after all the loves of my life, you'll still be the one.

Verse 3

       G                    Bm               C   Cmaj7
I will take my life into my hands and I will use it.
   Am6                                             D    G
I will win the worship in their eyes, and I will lose it.
       C                          
I will have the things that I desire,
Cmaj7  Am                Bm                E                
and my passion flow like rivers to the sky.
 E7 Am                         C
And after all the loves of my life,  
         G                        C
woah... after all the loves of my life,
                     F       D         Em   G  Bb  C  
I'll be thinking of you, and wondering why.

Outro

all the sweet green iceing flowing down.

Someone left the cake out in the rain.
F#m     Bm
I don't think that I can take it.

         D                      G        Bb      D#  Dm7    D         
And I'll never have that recipe again oh nooo,  oh nooo, noo
