Intro:
    D
    Gbm  G  Bm  A  D -x6-

Verse:
G                 Bm
Met a girl in the parking lot
D                  A        Gbm  G
And all I did was say hello
                          Bm
Her pepper spray made it rather hard
Em         G       A
For me to walk her home
         Em            Bm      A
But I guess that’s the way it goes

Chorus:
D                     A
Tell me again was it love at first sight
     Em                   G
When I walked by and you caught my eye
D                            A
Didn’t you know love could shine this bright
       G      Bm               G           A
Well smile because you’re the deer in the headlights

Interlude -x4-: Gbm  G  Bm  A  D

Verse:
G                   Bm
Met a girl with a graceful charm
D                        A              Gbm  G
But when beauty met the beast, he froze
             Bm
Got the sense I was not her type
    Em             G     A
By black eye and bloody nose
         Em            Bm      A
But I guess that’s the way it goes

Chorus:
D                     A
Tell me again was it love at first sight
     Em                   G
When I walked by and you caught my eye
D                            A
Didn’t you know love could shine this bright
       G      Bm               G           A
Well smile because you’re the deer in the headlights

Bridge:
Bm         A
It’s suffocating to say
         Em                        G
But the female mystique takes my breath away
    D                   A
So give me a smile or give me a sneer
             G               A
‘Cause I’m trying to guess here

Chorus:
D                     A
Tell me again was it love at first sight
     Em                   G
When I walked by and you caught my eye
D                            A
Didn’t you know love could shine this bright
    Em                   A
I’m sorry I ever tried -deer in the headlights-

Chorus:
D                     A
Tell me again was it love at first sight
     Em                   G
When I walked by and you caught my eye
D                            A
Didn’t you know love could shine this bright
    G         Bm               G          A
If life was a game, you would never play nice
    G         Bm               G           A
If love was a beam, you’d be blind in both eyes
          G          Bm                 G           A
Put your sunglasses on ‘cause you’re a deer in the headlights

Outro:
    Gbm  G  Bm  A  D
    Gbm  G  Bm  A  D
    -You’re the deer in the headlights-
    Gbm  G  Bm  A  D -x5-
    Gbm  G  Bm  A  D
    -You’re the deer in the headlights-
    D
