C                       Bb              Am
And now i'm trying to decide if i feel dirty at all
          Ab
cause it gets hard to tell
C                          Bb                Am      
it's never just black and white she's got a mind of her own
         Ab
and she uses it well
    C                   Bb                       
so she invites me over outside villanova
      Am                              Ab
she's got some pull-out sofa that we won't hardly need
        C                  Bb
she is only drinking soda revving up that motor
     Am                          Ab
got places we could go to but i still won't believe
            G     C
that she's only gifted
           F              C
when i'm standing by her side
          G    C
she goes unassisted
        F                  G
and i start to relax as i cut her some slack

Chorus:
    C        Bb
so get up i gotta go to work
   G                         F   
facing all these people who now know i'm a jerk
            C        Bb
and it's a set-up i gotta change my clothes
     G                                F
concealing all this evidence before everybody knows
           C    Bb               Am        Ab     C     Bb  Am  Ab
what i've done      and what i'm gonna do      …again


 C                        Bb              Am
and in the middle of the night i have a breakdown of sorts
        Ab
with regret creeping in
  C                   Bb            Am
she's gonna put up a fight and she will get her way
           Ab
cause she loves sleeping in
      C                             Bb
so i need someone to side with when she begins confiding
   Am                              Ab
and i cannot provide it cause i'm endlessly cold
     C                        Bb
she says she's so excited to play some groom and bride
     Am                         Ab
with me but i'm undecided so I need to be told
            G     C
that she's only sinking
           F              C
when i'm sleeping by her side
         G         C
with a change of thinking
         F                 G
i could pull us away even just for a day

Chorus:
    C        Bb
so get up i gotta go to work
   G                         F   
facing all these people who now know i'm a jerk
            C        Bb
and it's a set-up i gotta change my clothes
     G                                F
concealing all this evidence before everybody knows
           C    Bb               Am        Ab     C     Bb  Am  Ab
what i've done      and what i'm gonna do      …again

Bridge:
G
she grows impatient to change my tune
Ab
she's getting older and legal soon
Am                          Bb
and i wasn't ready to start out and go upsetting
      B
some girl that i'd be forgetting 
        C                               F
by the time the cops came by that afternoon
      Bb                     F
and i try to decide as she pulls me aside 


Chorus:
    C        Bb
so get up i gotta go to work
   G                         F   
facing all these people who now know i'm a jerk
            C        Bb
and it's a set-up i gotta change my clothes
     G                                F
concealing all this evidence before everybody knows
           C    Bb               Am        Ab     C     Bb  Am  Ab
what i've done      and what i'm gonna do      …again
