Bear Hands


[VERSE 1]
Bb       Eb                   C#  Eb
I would never ask you
      Bb        Eb                    C#  Eb
To do something I wouldn't do
Bb            Eb                  C#  Eb
I could never lose you
      Bb      Eb                         C#  Eb
At least I'd never choose to       (Riff 1)


[PRE-CHORUS 1]
Bb                Eb          C#           Eb
All your friends are sober, yeah we're getting older
Bb           Eb          C#                  Eb
Going out's a drag now, all my spots have closed (Riff 1)
     Bb         Eb       C#              Eb
And we can fantasize without much of a mess
     Bb             Eb       C#            Eb
And making love is fine, but all I want is to forget
          Bb
How old I am...


[CHORUS 1]
(Bb)
(Can't remember anything else)
                           C#  Ab
Nothing good happens past 2-A-M
          Bb
I put the ball in your court (Riff 2-a), text me back
                          C#          Ab
I want a full report, I want cash in hand (Riff 3)
      Bb
I'm still waiting for my man (Has he even left the house?)
                             C#               Ab
Short a couple dollars but I think he'll understand
          Bb                          Ab                    Eb               C# Eb Bb 
I put my best dress on (Riff 2-a) get back in bed, nothing good happens past 2-A-M

(Riff 1)

Can't turn back it's too late

I saw you drink the Kool-Aid
   Bb            Eb            C#  Eb
But I don't want no undue
 Bb           Eb               C#  Eb
Attention coming from you          (Riff 1)

All your friends are sober, yeah we're getting older

Staying in at home, it's good enough for both us (Riff 1)
    Bb      Eb         C#            Eb
And we can fantasize without hearing I told ya
 Bb         Eb           C#         Eb
Making love is fine, but all I want is to forget
            Bb
How old I am
