         C7
I want a love that' s right,


But right is only half of what' s wrong

         Dm7
I want a short haired girl


Who sometimes wears it twice as long

    F7                                  Ab
Now I'm stepping out this old brown shoe


Baby, I'm in love with you

    F7
I'm so glad you came here,

     E7                       Am
It won't be the same now I'm telling you

C7

C7
You know you pick me up


From where some tried to drag me down

           Dm7
And when I see your smile                                


Replacing every thought less frown 

     F7                  Ab
So escaping from this zoo


Baby I'm in love with you

    F7
I'm so glad you came here

      E7                        Am
It won't be the same now when I'm with you





G7
If I grow up I'll be a singer

                F7            G7
Wearing rings on every finger


Not worrying what they or you'll say

                       F7
I'll live and love and maybe someday

 D7/F#                          G7
Who knows baby you may comfort me



      C7

      Dm7

Solo  F7  Ab  F7 E7 Am  G7



G7
I may appear to be imperfect

                     F7            G7
My love is something you can reject


I'm changing faster than the weather

               F7
If you and me should get together

D7/F#                            G7
Who knows baby you may comfort me...



          C7
I know my love is yours


To miss that love is something I'd hate

             Dm7
I'll make an early start

                                    F7
I'm making sure that I'm not late 


For your sweet top lip I'm in the queue

Ab
Baby I'm in love with you

    F7
I'm so glad you came here

      E7                      Am
It won't be the same now when I'm with you....
