The Am's that aren't in the bridge could also be C's, but I kind of like the minor sound.


         G          D
You were saving the date
         C           D
But you woke up too late
            G          D          C      D
Pulled the covers down over your head
             G               D
You haven't left your front door
       C          D
For a week maybe more
          G               D              C     D
Tell me, hey, what's the news from your bed

               Am                           D
You know your face is all covered with your birthday cake
             G             D          Em
That you're eating in the kitchen at home
         Am             D
Another banner year, a splendid day
         G       D               Em
Another inch or two that you've grown
          Am                       C  D
But it's hard to celebrate on your own

           G            D             C             D
There's a mouse in the cupboard that nibbles your crumbs
         G           D     C    D
And you talk to him every night
          G         D             C             D
You say, 'Hey, Mr. Whiskers, I'm bored and I'm numb
         G           D             C       D
You can stay if you just treat me right

 Am                       D         
Just last year you were fortunate baby
          G                D            Em
And your friends circled around you in droves
          Am                D
Are they thinking of you? Maybe just maybe
     G             D           Em
But not a one has bothered to phone
         Am                        C   D
Tell me where, oh, where did they go?


Am                     G
Called a car about an hour ago
You're gonna take yourself out
Despite the cold and snow
Did they forget about you?
Are they in on it too?
You're sitting looking in the mirror
         G       C       C  D
At your dancing shoes

           G      D              C            D
When your family calls you make nice to them all
       G                D                C    D
And assure them you're fine and you're great
          G          D             C            D
Then you cry in the bath, cry so hard that you laugh
          G         D          C      D
Then you watch television til late

Am                D  
Who do you need?   Nobody
        G      D        Em
You're lucky nobody's around
I can pour my own drinks
D                      G       D          Em
No thanks, Mister. Go on, and get out of town
             Am                      C D G
And you're gorgeous in your evening gown
