D                A        G          D

So you quote love unquote me

           Bm          Em         G          A
Well, stranger things have come to be

      Bm      F#m    G       E
But let's agree to disagree

          D   E       Bm    G
'Cause I don't believe you

D   E       Bm    G
I don't believe you

/ D - A - / G - - - / x2

 

D             A      G             D
You tell me I'm not not cute

       Bm    Em  G         A
Its truth or falsity is moot

          Bm    F#m     G               E
Cause honesty's not your strong suit

      D   E       Bm    G
And I don't believe you

D   E       Bm    G
I don't believe you

/ D - A - / G - - - / x2

 

D             A         G             D
You tell me of what once was

       Bm    Em          G                   A
And all about Buck, Butch, and Buzz

          Bm          F#m   G             E
How they were not like me because...

      D   E       Bm    G
But I don't believe you

D   E       Bm    G
I don't believe you

 

/ D - A - / G - - - / x2

D           A                           G (x2)
I had a dream and you were in it

D                A                    G (x2)
The blue of your eyes was infinite
G
(x2)

You seemed to be

A (x2)
In love with me

Bm             A         G (x2)

Which isn't very realistic

 

/ D - E - / G - - - / x4

D             A         G             D
You may sing me "They Were You"

       Bm    Em          G                   A
And I start crying halfway through

          Bm          F#m   G             E
But nothing else you say is true

      D   E       Bm    G
So I don't believe you

D   E       Bm    G
I don't believe you

 

/ D - A - / G - - - / x2

D               A              G          D
You may set your charm on stun

       Bm       Em     G           A
And say I'm delightful and fun

       Bm      F#m   G             E
But you say that to everyone

       D   E       Bm    G
Well, I don't believe you

D   E       Bm    G
I don't believe you

 

/ D - A - / G - - - / x2

D              A          G             D
So you're brilliant gorgeous and

      Bm      Em  G             A
Ampersand after ampersand

       Bm     F#m        G          E
You think I just don't understand

      D   E       Bm    G
But I don't believe you

D   E       Bm    G
I don't believe you

D   E       Bm    G
I don't believe you

D   E       Bm    G
I don't believe you

 

/ D - E - / G - - - / x2

 

End on D
