Bm7  Bm7/G  Bm7/E             A7  A7/Bb
          Steel String Guitar
  Bm7  Bm7/G  Bm7/E              A7  A7/Bb
Chimes         Synthetic Percussion

      Bm7            Bm7/G                     Bm7/E                A7          A7/Bb
Baby Girl, I wanna show you how much I really love you (How much I really love you)
      Bm7                 Bm7/G                        Bm7/E               A7  A7/Bb
Baby Girl, That's what I call you to show you that my love for you is true
      Bm7       Bm7/G                    Bm7/E         A7  A7/Bb
Baby Girl, Our love is so great that I wrote you this song
         Bm7                       Bm7/G              Bm7/E           A7  A7/Bb
and to show you how much I really care it sounds like every other one

Bm7                           Bm7/G
The beat kicks in and then I sing a bit more rhythmically,
Bm7/E                   A7           A7/Bb
  To make it sensual I sing it in a minor key
Bm7                            Bm7/G
  I move my hands like I'm pushing someone in front of me
Bm7/E                             A7            A7/Bb           Gmaj7
  Now that's the first verse and now I'm gonna take it to the bridge

Gmaj7  Gmaj7/F#                          Gmaj7/E         Gmaj7/F#
I say something 'bout how I dont wanna break up, Then I turn around and rhyme it with 
 Gmaj7      Gmaj7/F#                     Gmaj7/E               Gmaj7/F#
Make up. I tell you that we should be together  (How Long?) Forever    (That Long)
    Gmaj7                    Gmaj7/F#      Gmaj7/E                   Gmaj7/F#
and Ever (So Long) Girl your always in my heart (In my heart) and I never want to be 
  Gmaj7                       Gmaj7/F#         Gmaj7/E                  Gmaj7/F#         G
apart (Never be apart) Honey you'll always be mine (Baby be Mine) Baby girl it's chorus time

G  D                      A
 This is how you write a love song
       F#m                           G
Yeah this is how you write a cliche love song
  D                           A
This is how you write a love song
         F#m               Bm7
Yeah a shitty 90's R n' B love song

Bm7                       Bm7/G
This is my backup and he sings quite breathilly (Breathilly)
Bm7/E                         A7               A7/Bb
He takes the words I say and sings them after me (Sings em after me)
Bm7                      Bm7/G
He emphasizes words and sings emphatically (I sing emphatically)
Bm7/E                    N.C.            Gmaj7
Now listen to us sing in A Capella harmony

Gmaj7  Gmaj7/F#              Gmaj7/E          Gmaj7/F#
      Now were back at the bridge I haven't written anything for
  Gmaj7        Gmaj7/F#  Gmaj7/E  Gmaj7/F#  Gmaj7
This.  So I'm gonna   stretch     out the  words
Gmaj7/F#    Gmaj7/E       Gmaj7/F#
  Repeating everything I say
       Gmaj7                 Gmaj7/F#              Gmaj7/E                   Gmaj7/F#           Gmaj7
Til I get (Til I get) Til I get (Til I get) Til I get (Til I get)Yeah til I get back to the chorus

G  D                      A
 This is how you write a love song
         F#m                           G
Yeah a shitty, shitty, shitty, shitty love song
         D                         A
And to show you I care I throw my hands in the air
 N.C.                                  Bm7  F#m
Now cut the music while I sing a long note

Bm7                                                F#m7
Hey girl I've been standing at the back not doing much for this song
But that's because my talents are quite limited   but that don't mean that I love you any less
       F#m7                                             Bm7
In fact  it means the opposite (Im just showing off my voice) its just it's so hard for me to find the words
To really express the way that I feel about you girl
Especially when I have to worry about fitting those words to music
And there's some kind of rhyme structure involved (Meaningless Whisper)
   I know it's lazy song writing but I don't care
Cause I sleep on a big pile of money at night
  Girl You might think it's weird, girl
That three guys are singing about just one girl, girl
But let me tell you something, girl,  it's not weird at all
                                        F#m7                                             Bm7
In fact, girl, It's an industry standard   and it happens all the time (Happens all the time)
                                                F#m7                                                   G
Well girl I better wrap this up about now cause I'm about to be cut off by- (Woah-oo-oh-oo-oh-oo-oh-oo-oh)

 D                       A
Baby I wrote you a love song
           F#m                   G
It wasn't hard It really didn't take long
   D               A
A totally generic love song
      F#m                       G
Yeah really this could be about anyone
              D                     A
But it's for you yeah this is your love song
 F#m          G
Non-Specific girl
             D                     A
To let you know we take it seriously
  Bb                         G#
Then watch as we change the key

           D#                 Bb
When you change the key in a love song
    Gm                           G#
It means your singing passionately
         D#                      Bb
But We still haven't reached the end
                 B                            A
No because were gonna go and change the key again

 E                        B
Look at me I'm singing a love song
     G#m                       A
Yeah anyone can sing a shitty love
     E           B
Our love is so unique
That I copied every other shitty love song (Girl)
