[Verse 1]

      A9
I'm breaking my mother's heart
A9
The longer I stand looking at you
    F#m7  
The more I hear it splinter and crack
     E/D     D/E   A9
From ninety miles away

[Verse 2]

      A9
I'm breaking my mother's heart
A9
The JCC of Spring Valley is shaking
     F#m7  
And crumbling to the ground
         D7                 D/E
And my grandfather's rolling
                 A9
Rolling in his grave

[Chorus]

A2                F#m7                   D7
   If you had a tattoo, that wouldn't matter
                    F#m7                  D7
If you had a shaved head, that would be cool
                 F#m7       A2/E
If you came from Spain or Japan
         Dmaj7      A2/C#
Or the back of a van
           B9                       D7
Just as long as you're not from Hebrew school
            F#m7              D7
I'd say, "Now I'm getting somewhere
  F#m7            C7(#11)
I'm finally breaking through!"
          Bm7  A2/C#   D     D#m7-5
I'd say, "Hey! Hey! Shiksa goddess!
           D/E                   A9
I've been waiting for someone like you"

[Verse 3]

                           A7
I've been waiting through Danica Schwartz and Erica Weiss
A7
And the Handelman twins
                          F#m7  
I've been waiting through Heather Greenblatt, Annie Mincus, Karen Pincus and Lisa Katz
     D7
And Stacy Rosen, Ellen Kaplan, Julie Silber and Janie Stein
         Bm7  
I've had Shabbas dinners on Friday nights
     F7(#11)
With every Shapiro in Washington Heights
         A/E            A+/F
But the minute I first met you
        F#min               A+/F
I could barely catch my breath
           A/E                       B7(#11)/D#
I've been standing for days with the phone in my hand
        Dmaj7               F7(b5)
Like an idiot, scared to death
            A/E                  A+/D#
I've been wandering through the desert
          Dmaj7               A/C#
I've been beaten, I've been hit
   Bm7          A2          Gmaj9        F#m11
My people have suffered for thousands of years
    Fmaj7(b5)      Bm7/E
And I don't give a shit!

[Chorus]

                     F#m7                     D7
If you had a pierced tongue, that wouldn't matter
                     F#m7                     D7
If you once were in jail or you once were a man,
        F#m7            A2/E           A/D               A2/C#
If your mother and your brother had "relations" with each other
          B9                          D7
And your father was connected to the Gotti clan
          F#m7            D7
I'd say, "Well, nobody's perfect"
     F#m7         C7(#11)
It's tragic but it's true
         Bm7   A2/C#   D      D#m7-5
I'd say, "Hey! Hey! Shiksa goddess!
           D/E
I've been waiting for someone like..."

[Break]

Cmaj7/F           Cmaj7
You, breaking the circle
Cmaj7/F         Cmaj7
You, taking the light
Bbmaj7           Fmaj9
You, you are the story
          D/E
I should write
          C7(b5)
I have to write!

[Chorus]

C7(#11)            F#m7                   D7
   If you drove an R.V., that wouldn't matter
                     F#m7                  D7
If you like to drink blood, I think it's cute
                F#min     F#m/E             Dmaj7     F#m/C#  
If you've got a powerful connection to your firearm collection
          B9                  D7
I'd say, Draw a bead and shoot
                  F#m7            D7
I'm your Hebrew slave, at your service
     F#m7          C7(#11)
Just tell me what to do
      Bm7   A/C# D    A/E
I say, "Hey hey hey hey!
           G2
I've been waiting for someone
           G2/F#
I've been praying for someone
            D/E                         D/E
I think that I could be in love with someone
   F#m9
Like You"
