A Laptop Like You
Jonathan Coulton

C  C/E Fadd9 x 4

Verse 1
C         C/E    Fadd9
 Here you are at last
C            C/E         Fadd9 
 To bring my cold lonely soul sweet release
C        C/E   Fadd9
 From my weary past
C       C/E            Fadd9                 C      
 Always searching, the one missing piece was you
                     C          Gsus4 C
And I beg you, come away with me
C                     C      G/F#     Am   D   A
 And together we will find a place to call our own
C                              D7sus4                 C
 I can’t wait to see what I can do With a laptop like you

C  C/E Fadd9 x 4

Verse 2
C              C/E Fadd9
 It’s not your CD slot
C       C/E     Fadd9  
 Or the Unix on which you are based
C         C/E    Fadd9
 You make my lap hot
C           C/E          Fadd9               C
 Cause underneath your aluminum case there’s love
                           C               Gsus4 C
And I forgive your strange one-button mouse
C                       C        G/F#         Am D    A
 I forgive the way your keyboard leaves marks on your screen
C                         D7sus4                   C
 I can overlook a fault or two   For a laptop like you

Bridge Lead In
C  C/E Fadd9 C Gsus4 C

Dm7               C          Gsus4 C
   We will always be together 
Dm7           C                  Gsus4 C
   In love in spite of everything
E7                      Am
  Hang on tight through wind and weather
D7     Dadd4/D    D7
Heaven knows what time may bring

C  C/E Fadd9 x4

Verse 3
C     C/E     Fadd9
 In a year or two
C         C/E          Fadd9
 You will seem big and heavy and slow
C       C/E   Fadd9
 I will carry you
C       C/E     Fadd9            C
 To wherever it is laptops go to die
                            C         Gsus4 C
And don't think it won't be hard on me
C                   C      G/F#   Am  D A 
 How'm I ever gonna find a way to justify
C                                   D7sus4 
 The money I will spend on something new 
C  C/E Fadd9      C    C/E Fadd9      
For a laptop like you
C C/E Fadd9 C      
 For a laptop like you
