   A               Amaj7     D              E7sus4
To do what I should do,  to long for you to hear,
 Bm                     G                 [ch]G7/F[/ch]
Open up my heart, and watch her name ap - pear,
    A             Amaj7    D             E7sus4
A word for you to use,  a girl without a cause,
   Bm                          G            [ch]G7/F[/ch]
A name for what you lose, when it was never yours,
       C                   G
Oh---, you! Doo'n, doo'n, doo!


     D                        A
The first time, baby, that I came to you,
    Bm                      G      
Oh, I'd do things that you want me to,
       D                        A
The second time, baby, that I came to you,
F                    G
Oh, you found... my love for you,
      D                        A
The third time, baby, that I came to you,
Bm           G
Oh--, hoh--, hoh---, ...I knew,
     D                       A
The last time, baby, that I came to you,
    Bb                   C               D
Oh, how your flesh and blood became the word!


     A                  Amaj7      D             E7sus4
The name the girl out - grew, the girl was never real,
      Bm                         G             [ch]G7/F[/ch]
She stands for your abuse, that girl is no i - deal,
        A               Amaj7       D             E7sus4
It's a word for what you do, in a world of broken rules,
     Bm                            G               [ch]G7/F[/ch]
She found a place for you ...a - long her chain of fools,
        C                   G
Oh---, you!  Doo'n, doo'n, doo!


     D                        A
The first time, baby, that I came to you,
    Bm                      G      
Oh, I'd do things that you want me to,
      D                        A
The second time, baby, that I came to you,
F                    G
Oh, you found... my love for you,
      D                        A
The third time, baby, that I came to you,
Bm           G
Oh--, hoh--, hoh---, ...I knew,
     D                       A
The last time, baby, that I came to you,
    Bb                   C               D
Oh, how your flesh and blood became the word!
