Intro: Play Chorus Riff Once

Verse:
Em                Am
   Charades, pop skill
      G        D           Em
Water hyacinth, named by a poet
   Am        G   D
Imitation of life
Em        Am       G
   Like a koi in a frozen pond
D               Em
Like a goldfish in a bowl
G               D
I don?t want to hear you cry

Chorus:
       G              Em
That?s sugarcane that tasted good
       Am              C    D
That?s cinnamon that?s Hollywood
  G             Em              Am  C D
C'mon, c'mon no one can see you try

Verse:
Em              Am
   You want the greatest thing
    G                    D
The greatest thing since bread came sliced

Em                Am                 G      D
    You've got it all, you've got it sized
Em         Am             G
    Like a Friday fashion show teenager
D               Em
Freezing in the corner
Am                  G             D
Trying to look like you don?t try

Chorus:
       G              Em
That?s sugarcane that tasted good
       Am              C    D
That?s cinnamon that?s Hollywood
  G             Em              Am  C D
C'mon, c'mon no one can see you try

Bridge:
C7
No one can see you cry

Chorus:
      G               Em
That?s sugarcane that tasted good
       Am                   C        D
That?s freezing rain that?s what you could
  G             Em              Am  C D
C'mon, c'mon no one can see you cry

Outro:
     G
This sugarcane
     Em
This lemonade
     Am             C   D
This hurricane, I'm not afraid.
  G             Em             Am  C D
C'mon, c'mon no one can see me cry
     G
This lightning storm
     Em
This tidal wave
     Am             C    D
This avalanche, I'm not afraid.
  G             Em             Am  C D
C'mon, c'mon no one can see me cry

       G              Em
That?s sugarcane that tasted good
      Am                   C        D
That?s who you are, that?s what you could
  G             Em              Am  C D
C'mon, c'mon no one can see you cry
      G              Em
That?s sugarcane that tasted good
      Am                   C        D
That?s who you are, that?s what you could
  G            Em              Am  C D Em
C'mon, c'mon no one can see you cry
