Intro:
E      B       E      A           E    B      
Hey hey, do do do do, do do do do do, do do
E      B       E      A           E    B       
Hey hey, do do do do, do do do do do, do do

Verse 1:
E                                  B               E
What should I compare you to, that sun on winter's day?
A               E                     B              B7
Tulips standing proud and bright when all around is grey
E                               B          E
What should I compare you to, a comet or a star?
  A              E                      B                    E
A little flicker where you've been or a lighthouse where you are?
     A             E          B               E
Well I'm a certain person who sees a sense of life
     A                E              B              E
That hides behind the glory days and only shines at night

Chorus:
                         E                              B
You're just a little red rooster; she's an old speckled hen
       B7                                             E   E7
You've fallen in love once before, now it's happening again
                 A            D         A      F#m
Just do what you use to, I'll do what I ca a a an
              E                             B                     A   E
And she'll be once, twice, three times your lady, and I'll be her man

Repeat Intro:

Verse 2:
E                                  B             E
What should I compare you to, that window facing south?
     A               E               B                    B7
That captures sun in tiny frames and throws it round the house
E                               B            E
What should I compare you to, a compass or a stone?
    A                   E                       B                    E
The rock that holds the whole thing down or the hand that points you home?
     A             E          B               E
Well I'm a certain person who sees a sense of life
     A                E              B              E
That hides behind the glory days and only shines at night

Repeat Chorus:

   A             E              B              E
So listen up you middle aged or slightly older men
A                   E                  B                E
If they look old to you my friend, you sure look old to them
A                  E           B                  E
Take this from the rooster who found his speckled hen
     A             E                  B              E
It's never down to who you love; it's purely down to when
