                  “CAN I BORROW A KISS”
                            by
                        THE KNACK

The song is played with an easy Mersey beat.  The minor chord progressions are 
typical of early 1960’s British pop.  Can’t help but think of “Needles and Pins” 
by The Searchers when I play this.  Hope it works for you.

Intro (also outro)
 A    A2    A    A4      A     A2   A     E  (played twice)
//    /     /    /////  //    /     /     /////


E        A          E              F#m     C#m       D  
I was a knock-kneed freckle faced over shy under fed boy 
                   E        A
in the summer I'll always remember.
     D      A          E            F#m        C#m
Said I was high-strung middle-class over-sexed underemployed
             E       A
by September I was a man.
               C#m        F#m              C#m
I followed the throng out to the coast and found 
  A                          Bm
a girl who stepped out of a song
       D                                                E
and my world filled with light and sound as she said to me

Chorus:   
               D                  A
Can I borrow a kiss that's what I heard.
               D               A
Can I borrow a kiss no cost incurred
          C#m              F#m               D            E
and I'll pay it back with interest if you'll only say the word.
               D                A
Can I borrow a kiss like lovers do, 
               D                     A
Can I borrow a kiss make dreams come true
       C#m                F#m
Let me know I exist can I borrow a kiss 
          D                    Bm
and I'll give it right back to you
          D                    A    (intro sequence)
and I'll give it right back to you.


           A          E             F#m         C#m
She was a dark-haired satin-skinned velvet-eyed wisp of a girl
        D                             A
with a smile that could stop you from breathing
            A        E           F#m                       D
She had me coming on getting off tuning in and out of this world
              E             A
and believing love was for real
               C#m       F#m                   C#m
Just like in a poem, she smiled that smile and then

  A                   Bm
I knew I would not be alone
          D                                           E
and that soon all my cares would end when she said to me

               D               A
Can I borrow a kiss is what I heard
               D               A
Can I borrow a kiss no cost incurred
         C#m               F#m                 D           E
and I'll pay it back with interest, if you'll only say the word
               D                A
Can I borrow a kiss like lovers do
               D                     A
Can I borrow a kiss make dreams come true
               C#m        F#m
Let me know I exist can I borrow a kiss
          D                    Bm
and I'll give it right back to you
          D                    E      (A-A2-A-E)
and I'll give it right back to you


Bridge:
C
When I look back upon the time that's passed away
D                                             E
It always seems that all my dreams are yesterday

(instrumental)
        D                A
        D                A

        C#m               F#m                  D           E
and I'll pay it back with interest, if you'll only say the word
               D                A
Can I borrow a kiss like lovers do
               D                     A
Can I borrow a kiss make dreams come true
               C#m        F#m
Let me know I exist can I borrow a kiss
          D                    Bm
and I'll give it right back to you
          D                    E   
and I'll give it right back to you
