C(add9)
When I first saw you
          D6
Something stirred within me
         C(add9)                D6
You were standing sultry in the rain
   C(add9)
If I could've held you
D6
I would've held you
C(add9)               D6
Rip it up and start again

C(add9)              D6
Rip it up and start again
C(add9)              D6
Rip it up and start again
  C                                 G/D
I hope to God you're not as dumb as you make out
  C
I hope to God
  G
I hope to God
      C                              G/D  
And I hope to God I'm not as numb as you make out
  C
I hope to God
  G
I hope to God

(Instrumental section, one full bar per chord)

C(add9)
And when I next saw you
   D6
My heart reached out for you
       C(add9)                    D6
But my arms stuck like glue to my sides
   C(add9)
If I could've held you
D6
I would've held you
        C(add9)                      D6
But I'd choke rather than swallow my pride

C(add9)             D6
Rip it up and start again
C(add9)             D6
Rip it up and start again

  C                                 G/D
I hope to God you're not as dumb as you make out
  C
I hope to God
  G
I hope to God
      C                              G/D
And I hope to God I'm not as numb as you make out
  C
I hope to God
  G
I hope to God

              C(add9)
And there was times I'd take my pen
         D6
And feel obliged to start again
        C(add9)             
I do profess that there are things in life
     D6
That one can't quite express
C(add9)                D6
You know me I'm acting dumb-dumb
C(add9)                     D6
You know this scene is very humdrum
C(add9)                          D6
And my favourite song's entitled 'boredom'

(Instrumental with sax solo, one full bar per chord)

C(add9)             D6
Rip it up and start again
       C(add9)              D6
I said rip it up and start again
       C(add9)              D6
I said rip it up and start again
       C(add9)              D6
I said rip it up and start again
       C(add9)                  D6                       C(add9)              D6
I said rip it up and rip it up, rip it up and rip it up, rip it up and start again
