Verse 3 [chords and fills as per verse 2]:

        As she leaves, she drops the presents
        That she won before
        Pulling ducks out of the water
        Got the highest score
        Now's my chance and I must take it
        A case of do or die

[repeat chorus]

[repeat bridge]

Verse 4 [as per verse 2]:

        Riding along on a carousel
        Trying to catch up to you
        Riding along on a carousel
        Will I catch up to you
        Now we take our ride together
        No more chasing her
