Elvis Costello
[Intro]
Cadd2 C  Cadd2 C  Bb  F    (x2)
 
[Verse 1]
Cadd2 C     Cadd2 C
To all the girls that awake to
 Cadd2 C      Bb  F
escape in the morning
     Cadd2 C     Cadd2 C
You wanna leave him
    Cadd2 C    Bb  F
without even a warning
     E              Am   Am/G  F
A trace or calling card
 
Am  Am/G  D/F#
 
[Chorus]
Am          Am/G           Em
Sad about girls who know perfectly well
     F            G
Why he's so sad about this girl
F             G
He's so mad about this girl
  C      Bb     A     F  G
Tonight
 
[Verse 2]
Cadd2 C
So understanding,
 Cadd2 C         Bb  F
oh, she's so undemanding
Cadd2 C              Cadd2 C
So in control, so on the whole,
      Bb         F
she's so good to you
  E
Until it gets to you
 
[Chorus]
Am         Am/G          F
Sad about girls in your poor little world
         Am          Am/G
That you unwrap and rewrap
     D
and know when she leaves
         Am            Am/G       Em
That the next girl to suffer, you put in your heart
   F                      G
To unwrap and love you, before she can know you
       F                        G
She's just got to show you the way that
                C
you're gonna be sad---
 
[Verse 3]
           Cadd2 C
Sad about girls that awake
   Cadd2 C       Bb  F
to escape in the morning
           Cadd2 C     Cadd2 C  Bb  F  E
Get up and leave without even a warning
 
[Chorus]
    Am         Am/G        F
But nowhere is sad as the girls in the night
    Am       Am/G          D
So ready to please you, so ready to bite
Am        Am/G           Em
Sad about girls who know perfectly well
F             G
He's so sad about this girl
F               G
You're so sad about your girl
  C      Bb     A
Tonight
F                 C      Bb     A
Sad about girls tonight
   F                 C      Bb     A     F
So sad about girls tonight
 
(fade out)
