Gmaj7   Fmaj7  (x2)

Verse 1:

Gmaj7                Fmaj7
A little while ago I went and placed a call
Gmaj7                         Fmaj7
To tell this girl I know that she could have it all
    Cmaj7             Am                     F                  G
The wedding ring, the whole dumb thing I was willing to tie the knot
     Fmaj7                                   Gmaj7
So I called her up, and this is the answer I got...

CHORUS:

G                                     Am7
I'm so sorry you have just reached my answering machine
D7                                  G
I'm not in at present, I'm sure you know this whole routine
F                   C               Bb                 G
Leave your name and number and I'll try to get back to you
         F7                                         G
You have thirty seconds to talk to me before you're through

Post-chorus 1:

             Bbmaj7                       Eb
And I said, "Baby let's go get married! I need to know you're mine!
     Cm7                               Bbmaj7
I am hangin' on, I am hangin' on, I am hangin' on this line
       Fm              Bb        Eb
And if I can leave one message before you go to bed
        Cm7           F                         Gmaj7   Fmaj7   Gmaj7
I would say to you." [BEEP!] and the phone went dead

Verse 2:

So I stepped out to buy some dog food for the cat
Of course she called about three minutes after that
Will she be my wife and share my life, well of course you can write the plot
'Cause she called me up, and this is the answer she got - 

(Chorus)

Post-chorus 2:

And she said, "Baby I got your message, well I'm answering your call
I have thought it out, I have thought it out and I think that all in all
If you ask if we can marry, and make if for all time
Then my answer is," [BEEP] and the phone went -

G                                     Am7
I'm so sorry you have just reached my answering machine
D7                                  G
I'm not in at present, I'm sure you know this whole routine (repeat till end)
