Intro -2x-: E   A

Verse:
     E
Well, all the parties on the streets are talking, 

store front mannequins sleeping in lights.
A
  We used to smoke while we were jaywalking like it 

was your birthday every other saturday night.
E
  Knew The bands so we never payed our cover.
E
  Wrote our names on the bathroom tiles.
A
  We never dressed to impress all the others,
A                                           B
They would let us in on a laid back kind of style.
B
But Boy you know it's been a while.

Chorus:
             E
I don't know why you don't take me down town like you got anywhere better to be.
        A
Talk it up and give me the go round round like a good time tease.
         E 
I'm only countin' on your cancellation,
E
Then I should be countin' on you at my door.
        A
Did you forget about how we went around,
A                                                E
I don't know why you don't take me downtown anymore.
             A
Ohhhhhhhh anymore.

Verse:
E
  I got some platforms sitting in the corner.
E
  They wanna stroll on a city sidewalk.
A  
  I got a dress that'll show a little uhhh uh, 
A                                                       B

And I don't know why you don't take me down town like you got anywhere better to be.
        A
Talk it up and give me the go round round like a good time tease.
         E 
I'm only countin' on your cancellation,
E
Then I should be countin' on you at my door.
        A
Did you forget about how we went around,
A                                              E
