You're tall just like a giraffe
You have to climb to find its head.

D|------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------|
B|-11-11-11--11--11-11-11--11--8-8-8--8--4-4-4--4-|

But if there's a glitch, you're an ostrich
You've got your head in the sand.

Answer me truthfully, do the clouds kiss you? 
With meringue-coloured hair, I know they cannot.

You're tall just like a giraffe
You have to climb to find its head
But if there's a glitch, you're an ostrich
You've got your head in the sand 
So are you my lady, are you? (No bass)



So are you my lady, are you? (Repeat until end, last line has no bass)
