Intro: | E | E | G#m | G#m Gm | F#m | F#m | B7 | B7 |

             E
Well, it's a big, big city and it's always the same
          G#m
Can never be too pretty, tell me you your name
   Gm F#m                                            B7
Is it out of line if I was to be bold to say, "Would you be mine"?
          E
Because I may be a beggar and you may be the queen
         G#m
I know I maybe on a downer, I'm still ready to dream
    Gm   F#m                                                   B7
Now it's three o'clock, the time is just the time it takes for you to talk

              E                             G#m
So, if you're lonely why'd you say your not lonely
                Gm F#m                            B7
Oh, you're a silly girl, I know I hurt it so it's just like you to come and go
    E                          G#m
And know me, no you don't even know me
              Gm F#m                            B7
Your so sweet to try, oh my, you caught my eye, a girl like you's just irresistible

| E | E | G#m | G#m Gm | F#m | F#m | B7 | B7 |

             E
Well, it's a big, big city and the lights are all out
         G#m
But it's much as I can do, you know, to figure you out
Gm  F#m                                                  B7
And I must confess, my hearts all broke in pieces and my head's a mess
         E
And it's four in the morning, and I'm walking along
           G#m
Beside the ghost of every drinker here who's ever done wrong
    Gm   F#m                                             B7
And it's you, woo hoo, that's got me going crazy for the things you do

            E                         G#m
So, if your crazy, I don't care, you amaze me
              Gm  F#m                             B7
But your a stupid girl, oh me, oh my, you talk, I die, you smile, you laugh, I cry
    E                              G#m
And only, a girl like you could be lonely
              Gm  F#m                                   B7
And it's a crying shame, if you would think the same, a boy like me's just irresistible

Whistling solo: | D | D | F#m | F#m Fm | Em | Em | A7 | B7 |
                | E | E | G#m | G#m Gm | F#m | F#m | B7 A | G#m F#m |

           E                                G#m
So if your lonely, why'd you say you're not lonely
              Gm F#m                             B7        A      G#m      F#m
Oh, your a silly girl, I know I hurt it so, it's just like you to come and go
    E                          G#m
And know me, no you don't even know me
              Gm F#m                              B7
Your so sweet to try, oh my, you caught my eye, a girl like you's just irresistible
