Second verse
------------

(Same chords as the first verse)

Well I cannot claim this advice as my own
I learned it in the gutter one night crawling home
She said "Don't you look ridiculous?"
I checked out her meticulously
And I would've stopped to argue but my teeth were broke
I said "I'd love to contradict you but my life's a joke"
Oh sister

Third verse
-----------

(Same chords as the first verse)

Well I'm a lucky man and maybe so is she
And maybe this is just the way it has to be
It's all based on speculation seems a crazy occupation to me
And though I didn't much believe her I was bound to call
I really didn't want to miss a single thing at all
Oh sister

Chorus

She said I'm no genius and I've lost myself
The books are on the table and the secret's on the shelf
And it's one time keep it slow, wind them up and here we go
Get it right today and you may still be here tomorrow
Some said she was saintly, to some she was a swinger
Me I only knew here as an acid jazz singer, come on
