1.     Me and you,       she says: "We're like an odd pair of shoes.

C                       G                      C          F

    One slightly stylish and one slightly plain,

C                     G                  C               F       - Am - G

    one for the nightlife and one for the rain."

 

C              F                           C             G

C                  F                    C            G

    no use in fighting ’cause I never win.

C                     F                - C               G

    There's no rules on this       ship of fools,

            C                F                 Am               G

    only lifeboat survivors who know what to do.

 

         C          F       - Am                   G

As I hold her tight,          she tries to fight it,

             C           F       - Am                    G

as she rolls her eyes,           a slow submission.

                       C            F - Am - G

’Cause she knows I'm ri..............ght,

         C             F                   Am        G

she dances a dance in the broad daylight.

‘Cause I can't say n................o,

         C              F - Am - G

no, I can't say n.................o.

      C           F                     Am       G

I'm ten feet tall when she's by my side,

but I can't say n................o to her smile.

2.     Me and you,       I think we found something old and new,

C                     G                     - C              F

    something borrowed, we're      bulletproof,

                   C                   G                   - C             F      Am                G

    yet we know when to bend, we're like     sonic youth never gonna end.
