Sara's Parts:


INTRO:  Bb5add9  C5add9  Bb5add9  C5add9



VERSE 1:

         Bb5add9
You're directing me 

          C5add9
Your eyes focused like a microscope

        Bb5add9
Get the cuts you need

     C5add9                      Eb5/Bb
Eyes focused like a micro-scope



CHORUS:

Eb5/Bb              G5/D
Go steady with me

G5/D                            Eb5/Bb
I know it turns you off when I

Eb5/Bb                     G5/D
I get talking like a teen

G5/D                       Bb5add9
I get talking like a teen

You're directing me

C5add9                                     Bb5add9
You're dressed up I lose my grip my focus

Bb5add9                C5add9
Make those eyes at me

C5add9                          Eb5/Bb
I lose my grip I lose my focus

I get talking like a teen

I get talking like a teen



BRIDGE(Sara stops playing):

You're directing me 
Your eyes focused like a microscope
Get the cuts you need
Eyes focused like a micro-scope

You're directing me
You're dressed up I lose my grip my focus
Make those eyes at me
I lose my grip I lose my focus



CHORUS (X4):

Eb5/Bb             G5/D
Go steady with me

G5/D                            Eb5/Bb

I get talking like a teen

G3
I get talking like a teen.

The chord names are just way off. Bb F C does not make Fsus2. Fsus2 would be F G C, that seems more like a Bb5add9. The Csus2 makes more sense, but I'd call that a C5add9. And that's a Eb5/Bb and a G5/D.

I actually have no idea how to name chords so what I have up are the names I found using the internet. Thanks for the heads up I'll correct the chord names :)
