know better.  When you find strange hands in your sweater, when
          G#m         C#                          F#m
your dreamboat turns out to be a footnote, I'm a man with a

                                       F#m
middle of Chapter three, but you were up to your old tricks in Chapters

The way you walk, the way you talk and try to kiss me and laugh in four

  G#m              C#m                      F#m         G#m
fighter.  With my pen and my electric typewriter, even in a
