        Pretty women out walking with gorillas down my street.

    G (½)              D (½)            F (½)                  C (½)            G (½)    D (½)   F (½)   C (½)

    Is she really gonna take him home tonight?

    C                           D (½)       Em (½)

    Is she really going out with him?

                       C

    'Cause if my eyes don't deceive me,

    There's something going wrong around here.

    G (½)              D (½)         F (½)           C (½)          G (½)    D (½)   F (½)   C (½)

        I wash my hair and I kid myself I look real smooth.

    G (½)               D (½)                  F (½)                   C (½)                 G (½)     D (½)   F (½)   C (½)

    Bm7                          C                   D7sus4             E7sus4       

         But if looks could kill, there's a man there who's more down as

    Bm7                                C                D7sus4           E7sus4       

    dead.  'Cause I've had my fill, "Listen you, take your hands off her

    Bm7                     C                        D7sus4     E7sus4       

    head!"   I get so mean around this scene!        Hey, hey,
