(Main riff)
 Our house had the biggest patio
                             D   Dsus4   D
Our house had all the summer shade
             (Main riff)
We had patio lanterns
I'd spend half the night making lemonade
                                          D   Dsus4   D
Which we drank a lot cause we were all so shy
        (Main riff)
Shy and nervous

E                  D
 Who was gonna be, who would be the first to dance
E                  D                                                (Main riff)
 Who was gonna be, who would be the first to kiss under those patio lanterns

E                                    D     A       Asus4   A
 Those patio lanterns, they were the stars in the sky
E                      D        A       Asus4   A
 Those patio lanterns, lighting up our lives
E                                    D     A       Asus4   A
 Those patio lanterns, they were the stars in the sky
E                                      D
 Those patio lanterns, lighting up our lives
                (Main riff)
Oh, those patio lanterns

(Main riff)
 And I was stuck on Joy, that was her name
                                       D   Dsus4   D
We didn't talk much, she was a nervous girl
             (Main riff)
I was a nervous boy
We stuck together like glue on glue
                                               D   Dsus4   D
Dancing to an old song, Bobby Vinton's Blue on Blue
             (Main riff)
Heartache on heartache

E                  D
 Who was gonna be, who would be the first to dance
E                  D                                                (Main riff)
 Who was gonna be, who would be the first to kiss under those patio lanterns

E                                    D     A       Asus4   A
 Those patio lanterns, they were the stars in the sky (stars in the sky)
E                      D        A       Asus4   A
 Those patio lanterns, lighting up our lives (lighting up our lives)
E                                    D     A       Asus4   A
 Those patio lanterns, they were the stars in the sky (stars in the sky)
E                                      D
 Those patio lanterns, lighting up our lives
                (Main riff)
Oh, those patio lanterns
