Gary lives with Rosie
                                           A  D

Watch 'em run away
E
I got something fine for you every minute now
D                                                  A      D A Asus2 A
If you wanna sit right down and stick it all right through
          A         Asus2
Watch 'em run around

[Verse 2]
D
They were gettin' tired of Johnny
                              A D
And all the big boys from N.Y.C.
               A
Watch 'em run around
D
Gettin' tired of Johnny (and Sally and Felix and Eddie)
                              A D
And all the big boys from N.Y.C.
               A
Watch 'em run around
E
They say "Jump on board, pretty baby" and I don't know but
D                                            A D
Seems like it might be a pretty good buzz to me
           A
There they go away
D
They'll help you and they'll hurt you
                              A     D
You're asked to leave so much behind
              A
Watch 'em run away
D
They'll help you and they'll hurt you (and help you and hurt you)
                                        A   D
You're asked to leave so goddamn much behind
          A
Watch 'em roll away
E
They say forget about tomorrow and
D                                               A   D
Concentrate on everything you know you're gonna find
A
There they go away

[Chorus 1]
   Bm7 E7     Amaj7    F#7
So move over, red robin
Bm7                   E7                       Amaj7
Have you got room for one more that just can't seem to win
Bm7                E7
There's no sense denyin'
            A            C#7       F#m
That's your best reason 'round for cryin'
B7                               Bm7 E7
Those days will never be 'round agai---n 
   Bm7 E7     Amaj7    F#7
Oh move over, red robin
Bm7                   E7                       Amaj7
Have you got room for one more that just can't seem to win
Bm7                E7
There's no sense denyin'
            A              C#7       F#m
That's your best reason on Earth for cryin'
B7                               Bm7 E7
Those days will never be 'round agai---n

[Verse 3]
D
There's Jackie and there's Brian
D                                                       A   D
Then there's four, then there's five, and then a couple more
          A
Watch 'em run around
D
There's Jackie and there's Brian
D                                                       A   D
Then there's four, then there's five, and then a couple more
          A
Watch 'em run around
         E
You be a good boy and don't drink too much I'll show you something
D                                        A   D A
Maybe one trick later on, maybe a couple more

[Chorus 2]
   Bm7              E7              Amaj7              F#7
So step right up and put your music where your mouth is
Bm7                           E7                       Amaj7
Pretty boys can make room for one more that just can't seem to win
Bm7                E7
There's no sense denyin'
           A           C#7       F#m
That's the reason they found you cryin'
B7                                Bm7 E7
Your chance'll never come 'round again
              Bm7 E7     Amaj7    F#7
Why don't you move over, red robin
Bm7                   E7                       Amaj7
Have you got room for one more that just can't seem to win
Bm7                E7
There's no sense denyin'
            A              C#7       F#m
That's your best reason on Earth for cryin'
B7                               Bm7 E7
Those days will never be 'round agai---n

[Verse 4]
D
But I'll help you in the meantime
                                                A   D
Figure out just what they're worth when they're gone
          A
Watch 'em run away
     D
I'll help you out in the meantime
                                                 A   D
To total up just what they're worth when they're gone
          A
Watch 'em run away
E
If you don't get it right the first time, pretty baby, I'll
D                                                   A D
Help you take one more crack at it much, much later on
