lyrics

G
Oh lady, oh baby,
C F G
I really think you’re something

I used to think cupid
C F G
was pretty fucking stupid


A F
I don’t know what’s going on
G
but I’ve written you a song
A F
And if there’s a god above
G
He’d be the god love

G
Do you think you could love me,
C F G
I know you said I was ugly
That one time

G
And maybe I scorned thee,
C F
But now I find I’m horny
G
For you, it’s true,
MAYBE YOU ARE HORNY FOR ME TOO!!!!

A F
Last time I scored a goal
G
You said I didn’t have a soul
A F
And if you’ve been offended
G
I hope this will mend it


G
What if we were dating,
C F G
Wouldn’t that be breaking all the rules

RAP
G
It might sound like I’m joking
Or that I am poking fun at you,
C F
It’s not true though it sounds like something I would do
G
And I know I said I’d rather be hung like a cat
C
And beaten with a bat
F
And stick a biro in my eye
A
But everyone lies
Sometimes
Love is blind?
That didn’t even rhyme
G
WORD

Oh lady, you’re lovely,
C F G
I want you to be my baby
And maybe I’m crazy,
C F G
But I know I won’t betray thee
You

A F
And this will sound sappy;
G
You make me happy
A F
And I’m no poet,
G
But I think you know that

G
BEATRICE,
YOU’RE VIVACIOUS,
C
I CAN’T TAKE THIS,
F
I LOVE YOU x2

G
Beatrice Beatrice Beatrice Beatrice
Beatrice Beatrice Beatrice Beatrice
C
Beatrice Beatrice Beatrice Beatrice
F
Beatrice Beatrice Beatrice Beatrice x3

A F
But I guess I’ll just see you at school
G
And I’ll play the fool
