rearranged the chords, so that the strumming is (in my opinion) much easier to understand Intro: Am F Dm G Am F G G Sha la la la la la la uh huh... Am F Dm G I was down at the New Amsterdam staring at this yellow-haired girl Am F G G Mr. Jones strikes up a conversation with this black-haired flamenco dancer Am F Dm G She dances while his father plays guitar.

Help me believe in anything Am F G G 'Cause I want to be someone who believes C F G G Mr. Jones and me tell each other fairy tales C F Stare at the beautiful women G G "She's looking at you. Ah, no, no, she's looking at me." C F G G Smiling in the bright lights, coming through in stereo C F G G When everybody loves you, you can never be lonely Am F Dm G I will paint my picture.
