Song versions: 1 2
Chords: F, C, F7, Bb
   F                               C
Oh baby why not just take one more chance,
                                       F
And risk all we got on this luckless romance.
                           F7        Bb
If someone asks why, we'll say we forgot,
                 F         C        F
And went kind of crazy, oh baby why not.

   C                     Bb       F
If love needs a fool for it to survive,
   C                        Bb        F
It sure looks to me like we both qualify.
                         F7          Bb
And a pair of fools will always beat one,
                  F         C             F
So let's play the cards and get this deal done.

                               C
Oh baby why not bet big on the bliss,
                                         F
And laugh in the face of what all odds insist.
                           F7        Bb
If someone asks why, we'll say we forgot,
                  F         C        F
And both lost our minds, oh baby why not.

C       F               C                     F
Oh baby please, you and I are exactly what we need.
   Bb                         F
So let's throw away all care, move out on the edge somewhere,
C
Find a place and just swing there in the breeze.

   F                               C
Oh baby why not just take one more chance,
                                       F
And risk all we got on this luckless romance.
                           F7        Bb
If someone asks why, we'll say we forgot,
                     F       C        F
And threw our lives away, oh baby why not.
    Bb         F         C        F
And went kinda crazy, oh baby why not.
    Bb            F         C        F
And both lost our minds, oh baby why not.

[Outro]
