     C                         D   - C                        D

1.     It's safe in the city,        to love in a doorway,

C                     D                                  Em     - D

    to wrangle some screens from the door.

                       C    - D                                C          - D

    And isn't it me,         putting pain in a stranger ?

                                C               D            Em

    Like a portrait in flesh, who trails on a leash.

      D           C   - D                           - C                            - D

    Will you see         that I'm scared        and I'm lonely ?

                                    C               D              Em

    So I'll break up my room, and yawn and I run

                D           Bm

    to the center of things,

                                           Dm

    where the knowing one says ....

 

 Dm    Am                 G

Boys, boys, it's a sweet thing.

 Dm    Am                 F                          G

Boys, boys, it's a sweet thing, sweet thing.

           Dm      Am              G

If you want it, boys, get it here, thing,

            Dm     Am              F                                   - G

'cause hope, boys, is a cheap thing, cheap thing.

 

    C

2.     I'm glad that you're older than me,

C                                D

    makes me feel important and free

C                                       D                 Em   - D

    Does that make you smile, isn't that me?

                        C    - D               C                              - D

    I'm in your way,        and I'll steal every moment.

                              C                     D                   Em

    If his trade is a curse, then I'll bless you and turn

                 D                 - Bm

    to the crossroads of         hamburgers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dm    Am                 G

Boys, boys, it's a sweet thing.

 Dm    Am                 F                          G

Boys, boys, it's a sweet thing, sweet thing.

           Dm      Am              G

If you want it, boys, get it here, thing,

            Dm     Am              F                                   - G

'cause hope, boys, is a cheap thing, cheap thing.
