|[drum intro]| | | |D Dsus4 D | D D |D Dsus4 D | Dsus4 D |


|D A |D Dsus4 A |

How can I explain how I feel?

|A |G A D |

I'm like a little kid runnin' at her heel

|G |Gmaj7 |D Dsus4 D| Dsus4 D|

She's giving me looks like she thinks I'm a snappy dresser


How can I tell what I should plan?

I've never kissed a girl or held her hand

She's waiting for me to move, I got to impress her


|A D |G D

I play guitar in a mainstream band

I got three red jackets and a Fender Jazz

I got Charlie Parker's autograph

|A D |G D | | | |

The girl I moved with's turn up on grass


She moved her seat next to mine

But I'm just playing for time

I ain't got the guts to let her see the real me


My confidence eroded away

Overhearing what children say

So I'm trying to make myself seem more appealing


I know your man is in to playin' jazz bass

I tried that myself but I need more space

Like to soar and fly like the big Birdman

When I met him last week, he shook my hand


|A | |A |A

Every lie I tell weaves another spell, another road that ends up blind

|B |

The Bird that shook my hand was a wanted man

|B | |

I think you knew that all the time


|E B |E Esus4 B|

I came so close to having you for me

|B |A (G^) E |

But I lost you in the fantasy

|A5 |Amaj7 |E Esus4 E | Esus4 E |

I pretended to myself that you were mine already


You waited, but deep in your eyes

You were watching me so worldly wise

Then you changed the subject and talked about going steady


|B E |A E

I've got two hundred records and a big hi-fi

I sit and listen to Ella and Basie all night

I play modern jazz of every variety

You could come and listen but we close tonight
