[verse; piano]Bbm Absus4 Ab I was just thirty-four years old and I was still wandering in a haze F#sus4 F# I was wondering why everyone I met seemed like they were Ebsus4 Eb Lost in a maze Bbm I don't know why I thought I should have some kind of Absus4 Ab Divine right to the blues F#sus4 F# It's sympathy not tears people need when they're the Ebsus4 Eb Front page sad news. [enter acoustic] Bbsus2 Ebmaj7 The incense burned away and the stench began to rise Bbsus2 Ebmaj7 And lovers now estranged avoided catching each others' eyes Fmaj7 Cmaj7 Fmaj7 Cmaj7 And girls who lost their children cursed the men who fit the coil Fmaj7 Cmaj7 Fmaj7 Cmaj7 And men not fit for marriage took their refuge in the oil Gmaj7 Dmaj7 Gmaj7 Dmaj7 No one respects the flame quite like the fool who's badly burned Gmaj7 Dmaj7 C11 From all this you'd imagine that there must be something learned [piano: (C Csus2 C5 Csus2 C Csus2 C5 Csus2 )]
[chorus; enter electric]C Fadd9 Slit skirts, Jeanie never wears those slit skirts Am7 And I don't ever wear no ripped shirts Bbsus2 Can't pretend that growing older never hurts. C Fadd9 Knee pants, Jeanie never wears no knee pants Am7 Have to be so drunk to try a new dance Bbsus2 So afraid of every new romance D Slit skirts, slit skirt Bm Jeanie isn't wearing those slit skirts, slit skirt Gmaj7 She wouldn't dare in those slit skirts, slit skirt C11 Wouldn't be seen dead in no slit skirt D Bm Romance, romance, why aren't we thinking up romance? Gmaj7 Why can't we drink it up true heart romance C11 Just need a brief new romance Let me tell you some more about myself, you know I'm sitting at home just now. The big events of the day are passed and the late TV shows have come around. I'm number one in the home team, but I still feel unfulfilled. A silent voice in her broken heart complaining that I'm unskilled. And I know that when she thinks of me, she thinks of me as him, But, unlike me, she don't work off her frustration in the gym. Recriminations fester and the past can never change A woman's expectations run from both ends of the range Once she walked with untamed lovers' face between her legs Now he's cooled and stifled and it's she who has to beg
[repeat chorus]Slit skirts, Jeanie never wears those slit skirts And I don't ever wear no ripped shirts Can't pretend that growing older never hurts Knee pants, Jeanie never wears no knee pants We have to be so drunk to try a new dance So afraid of every new romance Slit skirts, slit skirt Jeanie isn't wearing those slit skirts, slit skirt She wouldn't dare in those slit skirts, slit skirt Wouldn't be seen dead in no slit skirt Romance, romance, why aren't we thinking up romance? Why can't we drink it up true heart romance Just need a brief new romance
