[Intro]
Am   C F C C F C  (X3)
Am Am E

[Verse 1]
Am                 Dm
One look sends it coursing through the veins
Dm
Oh, how the feeling races
Am                  Dm
Back up to their brains
          Dm
To form expressions on their stupid faces
Am                  Dm
They don't want to say hello
                Dm
Like I want to say hello
 Am                           Dm
Well, the heartbeat's at its peak
             Dm
When you're coming up to speak
            A5 C5     D5    E5 G5
And oh, I'm so tense, never tenser
A5          C5   D5         E5 G5
  Could all go a bit Frank Spencer
A5        C5      D5    E5 G5
  And I'm talking gibberish
A5         C5           D5       E5   G5
Tip of the tongue but I can't deliver it
A5  C5  D5  E5 G5
   Properly
         A5    C5       D5     E5 G5
Oh, it's all getting on top of me
          A5           C5         D5      E5  G5 A5   C5  D5    E5 G5
And if it weren't this dark you'd see how red my face has gone, yeah

[Instrumental]
Am   C F C C F C

[Verse 2]
     Am     Dm
Everybody's trying to crack the jokes and that
    Dm
To make you smile
  Am                    Dm
Those that claim that they're not showing off
     Dm
Are drowning in denial
      Am                 Dm
But they're not half as bad as me
    Dm
Say anything and I'll agree
                Am             Dm
'Cause when it comes to acting up
    Dm
I'm sure I could write the book
                    Dm          C           Am
And now that you're more than a part in the play
              Dm        C          Am
It's slightly easier to think what to say
Dm         C     Am
You had us all, standing on our heads
Dm        C
Doing our best tricks, yeah

[Instrumental 2]
A5   C5   D5   E5 G5

[Verse 3]
F5  E5   A5       F5   E5   F5
  Never again, well, never again, no
           F5  E5     A5             F5  E5     A5
Will there be another one quite as desirable as you
 Am                                     Dm
One look sends it coursing through the veins
             Dm
Oh, how the feeling races
 Am
Back up to their brains
         C    C     C  C      C C   C C
To form expressions on their stupid faces
