[Verse]
                E                    G#m
This has got to die, this has got to stop
                F#m                            Am
This has got to lie down, with someone else on top
        E                              G#m
You can keep me pinned, it’s easier to tease
                       F#m                       Am
But you can't paint an elephant quite as good as she


[Chorus]
            E               C#m                F#m          Am        
And she may cry_____ like a baby. And she may dri____ve me cra____zy
      E        A       F#m   B
Cause I____ am lately… Lo____nely


[Verse]
                E                            G#m
So why’d you have to lie? I take it I'm your crotch
                    F#m                     Am
The pillow in your pillow case is easier to touch
                            E                            G#m
And then you think you've sinned, as you fall upon your knees
               F#m                       Am
Living in your picture, still forget the breeze 


[Chorus]
             E        C#m     
And she may rise if I sing you down
            F#m    Am
And she may wisely cling to the ground
      E          A     F#m    B
Cause I_____ am lately ho_____rny
   E                A       F#m   B
So why___ would she take me ho____rny?


[Middle 8]   
F#m                         Am                  
   What's the point of this song? Or even singing?
F#m               B
   You've already gone, why am I clinging?
F#m                                     B
   Well I could throw it out, and I could live without
   And I could do it all for you I could be strong
C#m  /  /  /   /    /     B
Tell me if you want me to lie
 

[Verse]
                E                           G#m
'Cause this has got to die, this has got to stop
                F#m                                 Am
This has got to lie down, down with someone else on top
             E                                      G#m
You can both keep me pinned, ‘cause it's easier to tease
                      F#m                    Am
But you can't make me happy quite as good as me

Well you know that’s a lie
