VERSE 1
  Bm7                                Em7
I guess U know me well, I don't like winter
      Em7                              Bm7
But I seem 2 get a kick out of doing U cold
Bm7                            Em7
Oh, what the hell, U always surrender
Em7                                      Bm7
What's this strange relationship that we hold on 2?


CHORUS
C                                G
Baby, I just can't stand 2 see U happy
    F#7                            Bm7
But more than that, I hate 2 see U sad
C                                   G
Honey, if U left me I just might do something rash
F#7                            
What's this strange relationship ... ship ... ship ... ship


VERSE 2
  Bm7                                  Em7
I came and took your love, I took your body
 Em7                           Bm7
I took the self-respect U ever had
  Bm7                           Em7
I took U 4 a ride and baby, I'm sorry
    Em7                                Bm7
The more U love me, sugar, the more it makes me mad


CHORUS
    C                                G
Cuz baby, I just can't stand 2 see U happy
    F#7                            Bm7
But more than that, I hate 2 see U sad
C                                   G
Honey, if U left me I just might do something rash
F#7                           
What's this strange relationship ... ship ... ship ... ship

VERSE 3
Bm7                           Em7
Isn't it a shame this ain't a movie
Em7                           Bm7
Then U could rewrite my every line
Bm7                                   Em7
I'll take all the blame, yo baby, I'm sorry
      Em7                              Bm7
But I didn't like the way U were, so I had 2 make U mine


CHORUS
C                                G
Baby, I just can't stand 2 see U happy
    F#7                            Bm7
But more than that, I hate 2 see U sad

Honey, if U left me I just might do something rash

Quote from http://prince.org/msg/7/162993 :

Yeah, that's wrong...

The key is D minor, and it goes like this:

Dm7 / Gm7 / Gm7 / Dm7
Dm7 / Gm7 / Gm7 / Dm7
Eb / Bb / A7 / Dm7
Eb / Bb / A7 / A7

I don't understand: What is wrong? That's exactly what I have here (except for the odd minor 7 here and there). Only that I use a capo (3rd fret) and play Bm (which together with the capo "is" Dm). I'm just lazy and I don't like playing so many barree chords. That's why I often transpose songs and then use a capo so it is in the correct key.

The sevens makes this song kick ass. It's what gives it that extra funkyness, edge and weight. Taking them away is like taking the bread out of a pizza recipe;)
