Please mister can you help me try to find my baby's house -
C              G               D        G
It's 3 in the morning and it's pourin' rain.
C                G         D            G
I can't find the house and I forgot the number,
C                          G           D        G
But I gotta give her these roses to relieve her pain

Don't laugh, just tell me you've been there before
C        G          D           G
So we fight, but we fight every evening,
      C             G              D        G
And I tell ya every morning I just love her more

And life can be strange
    C           D             G
But love can be stranger than fiction
     C           D             G
Only love can be stranger than fiction

Excuse me operator, tell me what time it is -
C         G            D        G
Me and my lover been in bed all day
C          G               D         G
I think I strained a muscle I didn't know I had
C            G        D        G
Mmm, tell me what day is it anyway?


Pre-Chorus 2:
C     D  G        C        G          D       G
Don't laugh, just tell me you hear what I'm saying
C          G               D              Em
I love her so much I don't even know what planet I'm on
C           G                 D       G
Love her so much, wish she'd just go away


Chorus 2:
    C    G    D G  Am            G           D       G 
And life goes on, filled with bizarre contradictions
   C    G    D   G
And life can be strange
    C           D             G
But love can be stranger than fiction
     C           D             G
Only love can be stranger than fiction

I know that sometimes love goes
    Dm7                        Em7
but sometimes it comes back to get ya
C          D    G           Am 
And when love grows, it grows like a flower
it grows like a tumor
Am7/G                          D         (G)     
Love shows that god has a sense of humor

Ya know that life goes on, ever immune to prediction
   C    G    D   Em
And life can be strange
    C           D             G
But love can be stranger than fiction

My mistake here.

The first line of the chorus should be:
C D Em
Love can be stranger than fiction

Intead of:
C D G
Love can be stranger than fiction
