Chorus:
    Eb                    Ab
She asked me, "Son, when I grow old,
     Cm           Bb
Will you buy me a house of gold?
    Eb                Ab
And when your father turns to stone,
     Eb        Bb       Eb
Will you take care of me?"

Ab      C7
I will make you
Fm       Dbm            Ab
Queen of everything you see
                    Eb
I'll put you on the map
                 Ab            Eb
I'll cure you of disease

Verse:
      Eb             Ab
Let's say we up and left this town
     Cm               Bb
And turned our future upside-down
      Eb                 Ab
We'll make pretend that you and me
      Eb     Bb     Eb
Lived ever after, happily

Will you take care of me?"

Ab      C7
I will make you
Fm       Dbm            Ab
Queen of everything you see
                    Eb
I'll put you on the map
                 Ab            Eb
I'll cure you of disease

Verse:
    Eb                  Ab
And since we know that dreams are dead
    Cm                  Bb
And life turns plans up on their head
Eb              Ab
I will plan to be a bum
   Eb      Bb       Eb
So I just might become someone

Chorus:
    Eb                    Ab
She asked me, "Son, when I grow old,
     Cm           Bb
Will you buy me a house of gold?

And when your father turns to stone,
     Eb        Bb       Eb
Will you take care of me?"
