D G A Em (x4) D

      G             A      Em     D
She?s interested in me
    G             A        Em     Bm
I?m interested in her
    A         G#m
But there?s a distance
     G              F
Each morning as she walks
    C      F        C
Our eyes exchange a thought
    F#                     E      D
Our hearts, an interest


     G               A     Em     D
I?ve seen her at the club
  G                A       Em     Bm
Expanding with the funk
    A        G#m
She looks so brilliant
    G                   F
She sticks close to her friends
    C        F     C
And when the music ends
    F#                     E
She is the Indian


    E       A        E        A
I?d like to meet the Elephant Girl
  E       A         E        A
I feel we know each other so well
     G         Bm       A         Bb
From eyes that meet the love they seek
Am
Interested to get close to you  (elephant girl)
Em                G
Interested to get close to you  (elephant girl)

D G A Em (x2) D

    G             A        Em     D
I?m interested to meet
    G                  A   Em     Bm
The girl that looks at me
  A       G#m
I will be trying
    G             F
Her colour unlike mine
    C        F       C
Her hair the plaited vine
  F#                       E      D
I will be climbing


   G             A         Em     D
My leg is always pulled
   G                  A    Em     Bm
By friends who really would
    A        G#m
But say they wouldn?t
    G                 F
The joke?s against my heart
 C       F        C
Immediately she's barred
      F#                   E
Their hearts are wooden


    E       A        E        A
I?d like to meet the elephant girl
  E       A         E        A
I feel we know each other so well
     D         Bm       G         Bb
From eyes that meet the love they seek
Am
Interested to get close to you (elephant girl)

Interested to get close to you (elephant girl)

I?m interested in her
      G             A      Em     Bm
She?s interested in me
    A        G#m
Her distance shortens
    G                 F
She walks towards the light
  C      F         C
I walk towards the lines
     F#                    E      D
That seem important


    G              A       Em     D
I?m counting up to ten
   G                A      Em     Bm
By five she's gone again
  A      G#m
Into the distance
     G            F
I'll try again to nudge my
C       F       C
Courage for the love
    F#                     E
Without resistance
