Bb            C           Bb
But Margery's dreaming of horses

Lookin' at a green sky
Sun like a red eye
Bright blue horses are the fortune she lives by

She's tired and lonely
Scared and depressed
Her visions of one day go racing the next

This measure repeated 3 times

(with Wurlitzer figure 1, 4 times)
So she takes her pills
Careful and round

One of these days she's gonna
    throw the whole bottle down

But she's trying to be a good girl
And give 'em what they want
But Margery's dreaming of...

Trying to be a good girl
And give 'em what they want
But Margery's dreaming of horses
