Intro: | D D/C | G | (2 times)

D          D/C    G
 Been beat up and battered around
D          D/C          G
 Been sent up, and I've been shot down
C                           G         Em
 You're the best thing that I've ever found
C       D       G
 Handle me with care

D      D/C    G
 Reputation's changeable
D    D/C     G
 Situation's tolerable
C              G    Em
 Baby, you're adorable
C               D
 Handle me with care

G      B7       C     D
I'm so tired of being lonely
G       B7        C       D
I still have some love to give
G         B7      C        D      G
Won't you show me that you really care?

     C                      G
Everybody's got somebody to lean on
         C                      D
Put your body next to mine, and dream on

D          D/C             G
 I've been fobbed off, and I've been fooled
D          D/C         G
 I've been robbed and ridiculed
C                      G      Em
 In daycare centers and night schools
C       D       G
 Handle me with care

Solo: | D D/C | G | (2 times)

D              D/C       G
 Been stuck in airports, terrorized
D        D/C       G
 Sent to meetings, hypnotized
C               G      Em
 Overexposed, commercialized
C               D
 Handle me with care

G      B7       C     D
I'm so tired of being lonely
G       B7        C       D
I still have some love to give
G         B7      C        D      G
Won't you show me that you really care?

     C                      G
Everybody's got somebody to lean on
         C                      D
Put your body next to mine, and dream on

D            D/C       G
 I've been uptight and made a mess
D                  D/C          G
 But I'll clean it up myself, I guess
C              G           Em
 Oh, the sweet smell of success
C       D       G
 Handle me with care
