2. What would you do to get to me ?

 

    What would you say to have your way ?

                      Em

    Would you give up, or try again, if I hesitate to let you win ?

                          Am

    Or would you be yourself, or play your role,

 

    tell all the boys, or keep it low ?

      Em

    If I say “no”, would you turn away, or play me off, or would you stay ?

 

       Am                                                                 Em

If at first you don't succeed, dust yourself off and try again,

 

You can dust it off and try again, try again.

    You know, our chemistry is off the chain,

 

    is perfect now, but will it change ?

            Em

    This ain’t a “yes“, this ain’t a “no”,

 

    just do your thang, we'll see how it goes, oh !
