VERSE 1

I retire to bed early most nights
You follow me in or you don't
And either way, it's alright

You've been going with her now for seventeen weeks
But that doesn't make a blind bit of difference to me

CHORUS

                 A                    Am
Just when you're ready to take on the world

           A                     D    C B
Some other girl had to get there first

         A                                Am
And it's obvious that you're a man that's after her own heart

    A
But you know where I am

    D                 C     B    A
And you know that you could have both

CHORUS

                 A                    Am
Just when you're ready to take on the world

           A                     D    C B
Some other girl had to get there first

         A                                Am
And it's obvious that you're a man that's after her own heart

    A
But you know where I am

    D                 C     B    A
And you know that you could have both

             Am
I wanted the world

           A                     D    C B
Some other girl had to get there first

         A                                Am
And it's obvious that you're a man that's after her own heart

    A                      D
But you know where I am so stop


A

"I feel like C.C. Baxter in Wilder's 'Apartment',
That particular arrangement just came out of the blue
And who was it who sang 'I know that you love one
So why can't you love two?'
I was in full-time education when I got scared of the future
And I've only got a job so I don't disappoint my mother
It's like I've painted myself into a social corner
Well, that's what happens when you listen to

G      Ab     A
Saint Scott Walker

G   A
On headphones

G Ab A
On the bus.
What about us? What about us?
My friends come round and they ask me 'What about us?'
My friends come round and they ask me 'What about us?'
You know that I, I don't kid myself about happy endings
I'm too old for all that now
And you don't have to worry that much about the future
And it's not as if you ever did before

               A
Because you'll always have everything just as you want it
And there'll always be a phone to ring at three in the morning
And you'll always have someone who'll drive you home
                                                                                                            
                                                      A
Yes, you'll always have someone, someone to drive you home.

                     A
Someone to drive you home.


CHORUS

                 A                    Am
Just when you're ready to take on the world

           A                     D    C B
Some other girl had to get there first

         A                                Am
And it's obvious that you're a man that's after her own heart

    A
But you know where I am

    D               C     B    A
And you know what I want

      A                           Am
And I know I'll never have you completely alone

       A                      D        C B
So I'm trying to draw up a contingency plan

         A                                Am
And it's obvious that you're a man that's after her own heart

    A
But you know where I am

    D                 C     B    A
And you know that you could have both

Am - A - D

    C     B    A
You could have both

Am - A - D

    C     B    A
You could have both.
