Capo 2nd fret.

G                           Cmaj7   Dadd4,6             G    Cmaj7  Dadd4,6
Standing at the door of the Pink Flamingo crying in the rain
It was a kind of so-so love and I'm gonna make sure it doesn't happen again
You and I had to be the standing joke of the year
You were a run around, a lost and found, and not for me I feel

Em   /F#  G         Bm  C D
Take your hands off me, hey
I don't belong to you, you see
And take a look in my face, for the last time
I never knew you, you never knew me, say hello goodbye
G    Cmaj7    Dadd4,6
Say hello and wave goodbye

We tried to make it work, you in a cocktail skirt and me in a suit but it just wasn't me
You're used to wearing less, and now your life's a mess, so insecure you see
I put up with all the scenes, this is one scene that's going to be played my way


Under the deep red light I can see the make-up sliding down
Well hey little girl you will always make up so take off that unbecoming frown
As for me, well I'll find someone who's not going cheap in the seams
A nice little housewife who'll give me a steady life and not keep going off the rails
