Em
All the bedroom lights go out
            D
As the neighbourhood gets quiet
   Am                                     Em
Ev'rything in heaven and earth is almost right

               Em
But there's a wife who's wond'ring
             D
Where her husband could be tonight
              Am
And when the phone rang almost once
             Em
She took a dreadful fright

         Em
Little things just seem to undermine
        D
Her confidence in him
Am                        Em
He was late this time last week

Em
Who can she turn to
           D
When the chance of coincidence is slim
            Am                       B+  B9  B
`Cause the baby isn't old enough to speak

              G#dim    G    D
There's been a long honeymoon
               G#dim       G        D
She thought too late and spoke too soon
             C
There's no money-back guarantee
             Bm
On future happiness
              G#dim    G    F
There's been a long honeymoon
                 Fm                       Eb
If he's out on a date then her life's in ruins
    Ebm                Bb
She never thought her love
      Ebm  C#     Cm        Bm
Could ever be as strong as this

          Em
All the movies and the papers
               D
Feature the murders of lonely women
       Am
If he isn't in by ten
               Em
She'll call up her best friend

Em
Why doesn't he come home
               D
Why does her friend's phone keep on ringing
Am                       B+  B9  B
Maybe she should just pretend

              G#dim    G    D
There's been a long honeymoon
               G#dim       G        D
She thought too late and spoke too soon
             C
There's no money-back guarantee
             Bm
On future happiness
              G#dim    G    F
There's been a long honeymoon
                 Fm                       Eb
If he's out on a date then her life's in ruins
    Ebm                Bb
She never thought her love
      Ebm  C#     Cm        Bm
Could ever be as strong as this

G                D     Am  Em
Be as strong as this
G                D     Bbmaj7  Gadd9  D
Be as strong as this
Bbmaj7 Gadd9     D
Be as strong as this
Bbmaj7 Gm7       D       G#5
Be as strong as this

Original tune is c-minor!
