                                              “Why” by Lily Allen

( I happen to think this is a beautiful little song and it never got heard as it 
was a B-side on the “Not Fair” EP…….couldn’t decide on standard tuning or Capo on 
the 1st so I did both)

Intro

Eb  Eb7  Ab  Abm  (2X)


Verse 1

Eb                 Eb7               A      Abm
Why aren't I one of these interesting people

          Eb         Eb7       Ab     Abm
Who's always got something to say?

    Eb        Eb7           Ab        Abm
To not be contrived and to feel so alive

         Eb         Eb7       Ab    Abm
And to never have wasted the day

    Eb           Eb7          Ab             Abm
To go for long walks and have well-informed talks

      Eb        Eb7        Ab    Abm
In an non-confrontational way

Eb           Eb7            Ab         Abm
Why aren't I one of these interesting people

     Eb  Eb7  Ab   Abm         Eb   Eb7   Ab   Abm
And why ………………………………won't you stay?



Chorus


Bb                    Eb
I'm still having the same conversation

Bb                     Ab
I've been having for years

Bb                        Eb
I just want to read and retain information

Bb                    Ab
Just face up to my fears

Bb                         Eb
I look at myself and it's so plain to see

Bb               Ab
All I need is to change

Bb                    Eb
Not too much, I still want to be me

Bb                  Ab   Abm
Everyone looks the same




Verse 2


Eb          Eb7          Ab         Abm
Why is my phone full of so many numbers

     Eb           Eb7    Ab   Abm
And why doesn't anyone call?

Eb          Eb7             Ab        Abm
Maybe they think that I'm always too busy

     Eb       Eb7            Ab    Abm
Or maybe I've no friends at all

         Eb       Eb7             Ab         Abm
When I'm watching tv they're all out necking Es

         Eb     Eb7      Ab      Abm
And well obviously I'm appalled

Eb         Eb7          Ab          Abm
Why is my phone full of so many numbers

    Eb   Eb7   Ab     Abm        Eb   Eb7  Ab  Abm
And why……………………………………… don't you call?





Chorus

Bb                  Ab
Just face up to my fears

Bb                         Eb
I look at myself and it's so plain to see

Bb                Ab
All I need is to change

Bb                      Eb

Everyone looks the same
