Bbm                                              Ab
I was just thirty-four years old and I was still wandering in a haze
Gb                                                       Eb
I was wondering why everyone I met seemed like they were lost in a maze
Bbm                                                   Ab
I don't know why I thought I should have some kind of divine right to the blues
Gb                                                   Eb 
It's sympathy not tears people need when they're the front page sad news

Bb                              Eb
The incense burned away and the stench began to rise
    Bb                           Eb
And lovers now estranged avoided catching each others' eyes

C7                                           F7
And girls who lost their children cursed the men who fit the coil
    C7                                  F7
And men not fit for marriage took their refuge in the oil
       D7                                G7
No-one respects the flame quite like the fool who's badly burned
     D7                                G7
From all this you'd imagine that there must be something learned...


C7                                      F7
Slit skirts, Jeanie isn't wearing those slit skirts
                         C7
And I don't ever wear no ripped shirts
                                 F7
Can't pretend that growing older never hurts
C7                                   F7
Knee-pants, Jeanie never wears those knee-pants
                                C7
We have to be so drunk to try a new dance
                          F7
So afraid of every little romance...

D
Slit skirts, slit skirts, Jeanie isn't wearing those
D
Slit skirts, slit skirts, she wouldn't dare in those
D                                                        G7
Slit skirts, slit skirts, wouldn't be seen dead in those slit skirts
D                                           D
Romance, romance, why aren't we thinking up romance?
                         D
Why can't we drink it up true heart romance?
                             G7
Just need a brief new little romance...




Bbm                                                  Ab
Let me tell you some more about myself, you know I'm sitting at home just now.
Gb                                            Eb
The big events of the day have passed and the late TV shows have come on.
Bbm                                    Ab
I'm number one on the home team, but I still feel unfulfilled.
Gb                                              Eb
A silent voice in a broken heart complains that I'm unskilled.

Bb                                         Eb
And I know that when she thinks of me, she thinks of me as him.
    Bb                              Eb
But unlike me she don't workout her frustrations in the gym.

C7                            F7
Recriminations fester and the past can never change
C7                              F7
A woman's expectations run from both ends of the range.
D7                                   G7
Once she walked with untamed lovers face between her legs,
D7                                   G7
Now he's cooled and stifled and it's she who has to beg...


C7                                      F7
Slit skirts, Jeanie isn't wearing those slit skirts
                         C7
And I don't ever wear no ripped shirts
                                 F7
Can't pretend that growing older never hurts
C7                                   F7
Knee-pants, Jeanie never wears those knee-pants
                                C7
We have to be so drunk to try a new dance
                          F7
So afraid of every little romance...

D                                                        G7
Slit skirts, slit skirts, wouldn't be seen dead in those slit skirts
D                                           D
Romance, romance, why aren't we thinking up romance?
                         D
Why can't we drink it up true heart romance?
                             G7
Just need a brief new little romance...
