Verse:
 Cm          F          Ab          Eb
When she was 22 the future looked bright
 Cm          F          Ab                   Eb 
But she's nearly 30 now and she's out every night
 Cm          F              Ab                    Eb
I see that look in her face she's got that look in her eye
 Cm                    F             Ab       Eb
She's thinking how did I get here and wondering why

Chorus:
 Fm               Eb                 Bb
It's sad but it's true how society says
                    Ab
Her life is already over
 Fm                Eb                         Bb
There's nothing to do and there's nothing to say
 Fm                Eb                            Bb
Til the man of her dreams comes along picks her up and puts her over his
   Ab
 shoulder
 Fm             Eb                     Bb    Eb     Bb  
It seems so unlikely in this day and age

Verse:
  Cm          F          Ab             Eb
She's got an alright job but it's not a career
  Cm          F                  Ab          Eb
Whenever she thinks about it, it brings her to tears
  Cm                    F             
Cause all she wants is a boyfriend
  Ab                 Eb
She gets one-night stands
  Cm                      F
She's thinking how did I get here
          Ab        Eb
I'm doing all that I can

Chorus:
 Fm                Eb                Bb           
It's sad but it's true how society says
                    Ab
Her life is already over
 Fm                 Eb                      Bb
There's nothing to do and there's nothing to say
 Fm                 Eb                         Bb 
Til the man of her dreams comes along picks her up and puts her over his
     Ab
 shoulder
 Fm                Eb                 Bb     Eb     Bb  
It seems so unlikely in this day and age

Chorus:
 Fm                Eb                Bb
It's sad but it's true how society says
                     Ab
Her life is already over
 Fm                 Eb                        Bb
There's nothing to do and there's nothing to say
 Fm                 Eb                         Bb 
Til the man of her dreams comes along picks her up and puts her over his
      Ab
 shoulder
 Fm              Eb                   Bb     Fm
It seems so unlikely in this day and age
