  C

I often sit alone up in a tree

C                                  

waving to the ones that wave at me

| D | [ch]G5/D[/ch] |

  C                   E

I think well just how stupid can they be

| Dm | [ch]Ddim/G#[/ch] |

G7          G           C

waving to a man up in a tree

C

what they don't know is I am counting them

  C

I even count the ladies and the men

| D | [ch]G5/D[/ch] |

  C               E

I put the numbers in my little book

| Dm | [ch]Ddim/G#[/ch] |

    G7          G           C  

and only me can ever have a look

F              Em

all I ask is a piece of mind

        G7                              C

which I lost somewhere down amongst the mess

D                    

all I want is for people to be kind

         Dm                             G

and walk slower to be counted when they pass

| C | D | [ch]G5/D[/ch] |

C                     E

I think well just how stupid can they be

| Dm | [ch]Ddim/G#[/ch] |

G7          G           C

waving to a man up in a tree

C 

I know that I will have to stop my fun

C

when I meet a girl who I can not count on

| D | [ch]G5/D[/ch] |

C                   E

maybe marry her and happy we would be

| Dm | [ch]Ddim/G#[/ch] |

    G7                G            C

not counting but just sitting up a tree

  C               E

I put the numbers in my little book

| Dm | [ch]Ddim/G#[/ch] |

    G7          G           C

and only me can ever have a look

  C                   E

I think well just how stupid can they be

| Dm | [ch]Ddim/G#[/ch] |

G7          G           C

waving to a man up in a tree 

| C | D | [ch]G5/D[/ch] |
