[ (C C#) x6    A Ab ] x2

D               Am(7)                         Em
Everybody knows. He comes and goes. But the smell of his last cigarette,
      F#m                      Am          G      C   G     (C G)x3       Am
still lingers in your clothes. So don't be stupid and naive,        he's only
        G             A              D
Playing cupid. And no matter what he says,
          B                E               A            D
He's only skimming off the cream. And he's only stoking boilers, while his
B              E
engine gathers steam
         D          E (E7)E            D              E (E7) E           
He isn't good enough.         He isn't good enough to me. 
   A
     He's only using you. 
         
He's Only passing through.
              E    Eb   E              Eb 
'Cause he's a wide boy, sitting in the back row.
E                Eb          E          Eb
Necking with his girlfriend. Goin' to a go-go.
E    Eb   E            Eb
Wide boy. Really goin' nowhere.

He'll be the one that always comes up, smelling like a rose. With one foot
        G        C   G   C    G  C    G     Am               G
in your doorway. And one hand on your heart. He'll never do it your way.
 
         A                      D                       B7
So don't part with the rubber gloves. 'Till the Turtle doves find a place to

saying.
         D           E            D              E (E7) E     
He isn't good enough.    He isn't good enough to me.

What is your secret? Wide boy. You better fill me in.
E                A              E                 B    A    E
Why are all your suits italian. Is it the way I'm standing. You gotta keep
