A                       E
What's the issue, dear? Why are you holding back from such a man?

A                                    D 
Is it the clumpy way he walks or the grumpy way he talks? 
A                                  B               E
Or the pear-shaped, square-shaped weirdness of his feet?
              A                             D
And though we know he washes well-he always ends up sort of smelly
            A           B               E
But you'll never meet a fellow who's as sensitive and sweet!

A                  G            D                 F
So he's a bit of a fixer-upper, so he's got a few flaws
A                                 G
Like his peculiar brain-dear, his thing with the reindeer
         D                 E
That's a little outside of nature's laws!
A                  G                D                  F
So he's a bit of a fixer-upper, but this we're certain of
A                      B7               D             A
You can fix this fixer-upper up with a little bit of love!

A    G     D     E
Can we please just stop talking about this?
We've got a real, actual problem here 

I'll say! So tell me, dear...

A                                               D
Is it the way that he runs scared, or that he's socially impaired
A                        B             E
Or that he only likes to tinkle in the woods - what?!
        A                                 D
Are you holding back your fondness due to his unmanly blondness
        A            B                 E
Or the way he covers up that he's the honest goods 

A                    G            D                    F
He's just a bit of a fixer-upper, he's got a couple of bugs
A                G                   D               E 
His isolation is confirmation of his desperation for human hugs
A                  G                D               F
So he's a bit of a fixer-upper, but we know what to do
A                      B7                D               A
The way to fix up this fixer-upper is to fix him up with you! 

A     G      D     E
ENOUGH! She is engaged to someone else, okay?! 

A                   G            D              F
So she's a bit of a fixer-upper, that's a minor thing
     A                       G
This quote 'engagement' is a flex arrangement
    D                  E
And by the way I don't see no ring!
A                   G                D               F
So she's a bit of a fixer-upper, her brain's a bit betwixt
        A          B7                 D                   A
Get the fiance out of the way and the whole thing will be fixed

A                                          Db
We're not saying you can change her, 'cuz people don't really change
G                       D                     A
We're only saying that love's a force that's powerful and strange
Gb                                 B
People make bad choices if they're mad, or scared, or stressed
Throw a little love their way -throw a little love their way-
and you'll bring out their best
True love brings out their best! 

C                      Bb          F                    Eb
Everyone's a bit of a fixer-upper, that's what it's all about!
C                            Bb                F               G 
Father! Sister! Brother! We need each other to raise us up and round us out
C                      Bb               F                  D
Everyone's a bit of a fixer-upper, but when push comes to shove 
C                                    D7
The only fixer-upper fixer that can fix up a fixer-upper is -
F                                   C
True, true, true, true, true, true, love
True love, love, love, love, love, true love 
True -

    Alternative to the E chord is an E7- little easier fingering and sounds good… thanks for the tab!
