    It all depends on your appetite

   Brenda and Eddie were the popular steadies
        D                               D C
And the king and the queen of the prom
G                      G/B                  C         F C F C
Riding around with the car top down and the radio on
G                     D       D C
   Nobody looked any finer
       G                    C
Or was more of a hit at the Parkway Diner
G                      F                           E7
We never knew we could want more than that out of life
       Am7        G/B         C           D         G
Surely Brenda and Eddie would always know how to survive.
     F       Em        D             G
Oooh oh   oh oh     oh oh   oh oh oh oh
     F       Em        D             
Oooh oh   oh oh     oh oh   oh oh oh oh


G                                                  D               D C
  Brenda and Eddie were still going steady in the summer of '75
 G                    G/B                      C             F C F C
When they decided the marriage would be at the end of July
G                        D
Everyone said they were crazy
G                       C
"Brenda you know you're much too lazy
G                   F                          E7
Eddie could never afford to live that kind of life."
     Am7          G/B    C           D        G
But there we were wavin' Brenda and Eddie goodbye.
   F        Em      D
Oh oh    oh oh   oh oh


     F/C
They got an apartment with deep pile carpet
      D                         G
And a couple of paintings from Sears
  F/C
A big waterbed that they bought with the bread
         D                     G
They had saved for a couple of years
     F/C
They started to fight when the money got tight
    D                             Em
And they just didn't count on the tears.
        A7         Am7/D
Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh   yaaa rock n’

|G        |F         |E7      |            |

|Am7 G/B  |C    D    |G       |F           |

|Em       |D          |
 Oh     oh oh

      F/C
They lived for a while in a very nice style
         D                       C G
But it's always the same in the  end
     F/C
They got a divorce as a matter of course
         D                       C   G
And they parted the closest of freh- ends
         F/C
Then the king and the queen went back to the green
            D                    Em
But you can never go back there again.
A7         Am7/D
Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh

G
Brenda and Eddie had had it already
       D             D C 
By the summer of '75
         G
From the high to the low
       G/B
To the end of the show
        C                   F  C  F  C
For the rest of their lives
     G                       D        D C
They couldn't go back to the greasers
    G                           C
The best they could do was pick up the pieces
   G                      F                      E7
We always knew they would both find a way to get by
Am7          G/B         C          D
That's all I heard about Brenda and Eddie
Am7            G/B         C          D
Can't tell you more than I told you already
Am7            G/B     C          D         
And here we are wavin' Brenda and Eddie good

  G     F      C/E     D               
Bye. Oh oh  Oh oh  Oh oh  Oh oh
