The girl at the grocery she's pretty and seems nice

      A                                             E
But she looks right through me with eyes cold as ice

A                                   D            A
She never answers when I ask her name

A                                E                 A
She only says I should have a great day


      D                             A

But hey what could she mean by that

      E                             A       G   D     E
Perhaps I'm the fool she takes me for

                    A (4 measures)
Not anything more

      A                                  D              A

I guess it's the season the time of the year

            A                                    E
When people they're happy and full of good cheer

                  A                                       D            A
Well they'll wish you and kiss you and wish you again

                  A                                        E             A
And they'll tell you it's peace and good will to all men



         D                             A
But hey what could they mean by that

      E                                A     G   D     E
Perhaps I'm the fool they take me for

                      A (4 measures)
Not anything more


      A                                D                A
We stood at the altar and you held my hand

            A                                    E
And everyone watched as the preacher he asked

               A                                     D               A
Will you take him and love him for bad and for good

                  A                                        E             A
You looked at me then you told him you would



         D                        A
But hey what did you mean by that

      E                               A     G   D     E
Perhaps I'm the fool you take me for

                      A (4 measures)
Not anything more

        A                                     D              A
Now each Christmas morning I sit in my chair

                A                                E
And I look up at the angels that float through the air

            A                                      D              A
Some look down upon me, some come to my side

                A                                E           A
And they tell me that Jesus he said to say hi
