INTRO 
D Bm G (three times) then G A

B                    E
Sit by my window and look outside
A                               G#m      E
Wonder why a sun don't shine on me
B                          E
What's wrong with you, you stupid child
A                                       G#m        C#
Don't you think that I'm the one you're waiting to see

F#                            B
Don't talk too much cause she falls for the soft touch
D                              E
Makes her feel everything is secure
      G            A                D
Don't ever leave a footprint on the floor

Don't bother with the local girls

B                            E
  She's probably halfwit she must be straight
A                                G#m         E
Bound to have a mother who knows nothing but hate
B                               E
 Don't want to laugh I'd rather knock her down
A                                  G#m        C#
Standing at the bus stop where she waits each morning

F#                   B
So isolated that she thinks that the army
       D                        E
Is the place where a man oughta be
      G                A                 D
Don't bother with them they don't bother me

Don't bother with the local girls

Don't bother with the local girls

Don't bother with the.... local girls

BRIDGE
     A                  G                   A              G
They got the walk, they got the talk, right down without a flaw
   A            G              G               A              D
At six oclock I got to stop my dreaming at the counter of the store

Instrumental
(D)               Bm    G
Don't bother with them!
D                 Bm    G
D                 Bm    G     G     A

B                        E
 Without a doubt I gotta intercept
A                         G#m              E
Must be time someone went shouted in their ear
B                          E
 You look all right in that cheap green dress
A                                     G#m         C#
But every time you swish it round you make me disappear

F#                 B
Yes I'm aware of exactly what I'm doing
D                        E
Making everything a mystery
G                     A               D
Don't bother with it, it don't bother me

CHORUS a couple of times and finish on the D
