[Intro]

G Em G D


[Verse 1] 

G
I really love you for your mind,
Em
and I know that we're two of a kind.
G
I don't go straight for that physical bit,
D
it always turns out a one-way trip.
Em
But won't you come up to my room,
A
so we can discuss, say, Egyptian tombs,
D
or maybe just do a few little steps
D                                 D7            
from one of our favourite Bolshoi ballets.
 

[Chorus]

D7          G                                  D
Oh, give me Shakespeare instead of long French kisses,
D       G                 C          D
give me Mozart instead of holding me tight,
D       G                  F         D
give me Tolstoy instead of girl-talk drivel,
G                  D
like 'Baby, it's alright'.
D       G                                D
Give me Shakespeare instead of moonlight flirting,
D       G                   C         D
give me Schubert instead of Hollywood tears,
D       G                  F         D
give me Bolshoi instead of all-night hustle,
D       C                     D                       G      
give me Henry Moore, Salvador Dali, and an evening at the opera !

[Verse 2]

G
I really love you as you are,
Em
and without make-up I think that you'll go far,
G
your clothes hide your figure beautifully,
D
it makes a lovely change, I mean that sincerely.
Em
I've got so much respect for you,
A
and I know that you've got respect for me, too,
D
so let's go and relax on my bed,
D                                D7
so we can confirm all that we've said.     



[Chorus]
D7          G                                  D
Oh, give me Shakespeare instead of long French kisses,
D       G                 C          D
give me Mozart instead of holding me tight,
D       G                  F         D
give me Tolstoy instead of girl-talk drivel,
G                  D
like 'Baby, it's alright'.
D       G                                D
Give me Shakespeare instead of moonlight flirting,
D       G                   C         D
give me Schubert instead of Hollywood tears,
D       G                  F         D
give me Bolshoi instead of all-night hustle,
D       C                     D                       G           D
give me Henry Moore, Salvador Dali, and an evening at the opera !


[Bridge]

A
Writing and painting, poetry and neurology,
D
those are just some of my favourite things.
Em
Gershwin and Schumann, Newton and Rasputin,
A                         D
those are just some of my favourite people. 


[Chorus]

D7          G                                  D
Oh, give me Shakespeare instead of long French kisses,
D       G                 C          D
give me Mozart instead of holding me tight,
D       G                  F         D
give me Tolstoy instead of girl-talk drivel,
G                  D
like 'Baby, it's alright'.
D       G                                D
Give me Shakespeare instead of moonlight flirting,
D       G                   C         D
give me Schubert instead of Hollywood tears,
D       G                  F         D
give me Bolshoi instead of all-night hustle,
D       C                     D                       G          D
