Intro:

Emaj7

Verse 1:

Dmaj7                     Gmaj7 Dmaj7
 Mary wants to be a super-wo   -man,
    Dm7                         Am7  D7
But is that really in her head?
    Em7
But I just want to live each day,
   Bm7                   Em  Em7      A7
To love her for what she is, mmm-hmm, mmm.

Dmaj7                     Gmaj7 Dmaj7
 Mary wants to be another movie star,
    Dm7                         Am7  D7
But is that really in her mind?
    Em7
And all the things she wants to be,
    B7b9               Em    Em7/A
She needs to, leave be-hind. But...

Chorus 1:

     Dmaj7      Gmaj7        Em7       Dmaj7
Very well, I be-lieve I know you, very well,
          Gmaj7       Em7       Fmaj7
Wish that you knew me too, very well.
      Gm          Am7             A#maj7      Cmaj7        Dmaj7
And I think I can deal with every-thing going through your head.

     Dmaj7      Gmaj7        Em7       Dmaj7
Very well, I be-lieve I know you, very well,
          Gmaj7       Em7       Fmaj7
Wish that you knew me too, very well.
      Gm          Am7             A#maj7      Cmaj7        Dmaj7
And I think I can cope with every-thing going through your head.

Verse 2:

Dmaj7                     Gmaj7 Dmaj7
 Mary wants to be a super-wo   -man,
    Dm7                         Am7  Dm7
And try to boss the bull around.
    Em7                               Bm7           Em    A7
But does she really think that she'll get by with a dream?

   Dmaj7                    Gmaj7 Dmaj7
My woman want to be a super-wo   -man,
    Dm7                        Am7  Dm7
And I just had to say good-bye.
        Em7                  B7b9           Em  Em7/A
Because I can't spend all my hours start to cry, but...

Chorus 2:

     Dmaj7      Gmaj7        Em7       Dmaj7
Very well, I be-lieve I know you, very well,
          Gmaj7       Em7       Fmaj7
Wish that you knew me too, very well.
      Gm          Am7             A#maj7      Cmaj7        Dmaj7
And I think I can deal with every-thing going through your head.

     Dmaj7      Gmaj7        Em7       Dmaj7
Very well, I be-lieve I know you, very well,
          Gmaj7       Em7       Fmaj7
Wish that you knew me too, very well.
      Gm          Am7             A#maj7      Cmaj7        Dmaj7
And I think I can cope with every-thing going through your head.

Chorus 3:

     Dmaj7         Gmaj7       Em7      Dmaj7
Very well, dum dum da, dum dum da, very well,
          Gmaj7       Em7       Fmaj7
Wish that you knew me too, very well.
      Gm          Am7             A#maj7      Cmaj7        Dmaj7
And I think I can deal with every-thing going through your head.

     Dmaj7         Gmaj7       Em7      Dmaj7
Very well, dum dum da, dum dum da, very well,
        Gmaj7       Em7      Fmaj7
Dum dum da, dum dum da, very well.
      Gm          Am7             A#maj7      Cmaj7        Dmaj7
And I think I can cope with every-thing going through your head.
