Intro -x2-: A E 

Verse:
A            E7
Why do I love him? He don't love back
A            E7
When I call his name, he turns his back


Eb                 E 
The weather is growing cold
              A                E7
And I want him back again

Verse:
A                   E7
I kinda know this other guy but he's rather
A            E7
Old enough to be my father
Eb                  E 
So he's not the one for me
            A                   E7
Cause I fancy younger men

Bridge:
        Bm7
I'm at a loss
Db7                D 
Not a coincidence he left me because
  Bm7
My older man
Db7                      D 
Was ready to love me like the woman that I am
D 
Oooh

Chorus:
            A           Eb    E  
So is it such a problem that he's old?
                  A        Eb     E 
As long as he does whatever he's told
                      A        Eb      E 
I'm glad that it's just my heart that he stole
                  A         E     A
And left my dignity alone

Verse:
A                E7
When in Rome we landed our first kiss
A                         E7
I slurred my words but he pretended not to notice
Eb                    E 
And then he sat down to play
                A                 E7
My heart sang a symphony


        Bm7
So far, so swimmingly
Db7                        D 
I'm glad I got out to find my fish in that sea
            Bm7
We've come so far
Db7                        D 
So who gives a damn about the ages we are
D 
Oooh

Chorus:
             A           Eb    E  
So is it such a problem that he's old?
                   A       Eb     E 
As long as he does whatever he's told
                         A     Eb      E 
I'm glad that it's just my heart that he stole
                   A       E     A
And left my dignity alone
                  A         Eb      E 
So is it such a problem that he's old?
                  A        Eb        E 
As long as he does whatever he's told
                A         Eb          E 
I know I'm gonna survive the December cold
               A          D      A
With somebody to retrieve my long lost soul
               A          D       A
With somebody to retrieve my long lost soul.
