Lyrics from:

Chords from the songbook, mostly

By Elvis Costello

NOTE: this song is in 3/4 time

G                      F#m  B
He saw no tears in her eyes
Say you wouldn't kid about it
G                          F#m
She's telling all of those lies
    B                        Em
She swore she'd never told before
But I doubt it

So he bit his tongue
    Bm                        Am
And tried hard to capture his breath
When she said I waited all my life
For just a little death

D                G            F#m
Say you wouldn't kid about it
B                Em
Say you wouldn't kid about it
A                G            F#m
Say you wouldn't kid about it
B                Em           Eb7 (XX1323)
Say you wouldn't kid about it

C                          Em
Sometimes he takes himself so seriously
C                          Em
She makes her movements mysteriously
             F         Dm   Eb7
Slow fast or    furiously
It's a big responsibility
With a face full of mixed ability
Big dreams of elegance
Em           F          C
Singing "The Leaving of Liverpool"
    D                        D9 (XX1232)
And turning into Americans

D                G
Say you wouldn't kid about it

G                          F#m    B
So what if this is a man's world
I want to be a kid again about it
G                  F#m
Give me back my sadness
  B                Em
I couldn't hide it     even if I tried girl
We fight so frail
Bm                    Am
Making love tooth and nail
You gave me the kiss of my life
I might even live to tell the tale
