rearranged the chords, so that the strumming is (in my opinion) much easier to understand


Intro:
Am F Dm G Am F G G Sha la la la la la la uh huh...
Am F Dm GI was down at the New Amsterdam staring at this yellow-haired girl
Am F G GMr. Jones strikes up a conversation with this black-haired flamenco dancer
Am F Dm GShe dances while his father plays guitar. She's suddenly beautiful
Am F G GWe all want something beautiful, I wish I was beautiful
Am FSo come dance this silence down through the morning
Dm G Am F G G Sha la la la la la la la yeah uh huh...
Am F Dm G Cut up, Maria! Show me some of them Spanish dances
Am F G G Pass me a bottle, Mr. Jones
Am F Dm G Believe in me. Help me believe in anything
Am F G G'Cause I want to be someone who believes
C F G GMr. Jones and me tell each other fairy tales
C F Stare at the beautiful women
G G"She's looking at you. Ah, no, no, she's looking at me."
C F G GSmiling in the bright lights, coming through in stereo
C F G GWhen everybody loves you, you can never be lonely
Am F Dm GI will paint my picture. Paint myself in blue and red and black and gray
Am F G G All of the beautiful colors are very, very meaningful
Am F Dm G (you know) Gray is my favorite color I felt so symbolic yesterday
Am F G G If I knew Picasso I would buy myself a gray guitar and play
C F G GMr. Jones and me look into the future
C F Stare at the beautiful women
G G"She's looking at you. Uh, I don't think so. She's looking at me."
C F G GStanding in the spotlight I bought myself a gray guitar
C F G G AmWhen everybody loves me, I will never be lonely
Am FI will never be lonely
DM GI will never be lonely
Am F I want to be a lion. Everybody wants to pass as cats
Am G We All want to be big, big stars, but we got different reasons for that.
Am F Believe in me because I don't believe in anything
A GAnd I want to be someone to believe, to believe, to believe.
C F G GMr. Jones and me stumbling through the barrio
C FYeah we stare at the beautiful women
G G"She's perfect for you, man, there's got to be somebody for me."
C F I want to be Bob Dylan
G GMr. Jones wishes he was someone just a little more funky
C F G GWhen everybody loves you, son, that's just about as funky as you can be.
C F G G Mr. Jones and me staring at the video
C F GWhen I look at the television, I want to see me staring right back at me.
C F G GWe all want to be big stars, but we don't know why, and we don't know how.
C F G GBut when everybody loves me, I'm going to be just about as happy as I can be.
C F GMr. Jones and me, we're gonna be big stars.....
