capo on first fret

G  D/F#  Em  A

G                            D/F#
I've been thinking about this for the last three days
Em  
I don't think that I'm deluding myself
A 
I don't think that this is just a phase
G
And I don't mean to shock you 
D/F#
I hope that I'm not rushing in
Em 
But I think that this is kinda important
A 
And I don't know exactly where to begin.

C         G               D        G
My whole life has been a constant ailment
C          D     G     rest 4beats
You can provide a simple remedy
C         G               D       G
Yeah, I'm gonna show some vast improvement
C        G         D        G
When you give your love to me.
C           G                D        G
And you can trust that I'm a worthy recipient
C           D        G    rest 4beats
And be assured I'll act responsibly.
C             G      D         G
I'll treat it like a rare and priceless art
C        G          D 
When you give your love to me.

G  
So hows about it girlfriend?
D/F#
Am I gonna have to twist your arm?
Em
Perhaps it's not the most original concept
A
But it has a kind of timeless charm.

C               G             D        G
You'll have the little birds flying all around your head
C           D     G    rest 4beats
And you'll gaze at me dreamily.
C         G                     D        G
Yeah, the whole world's gonna smile and wave
C         G        D        G
When you give your love to me.
C         G               D        G
And I will write you a hundred sonnets,
C           D        G    rest 4beats
Every word will rhyme easily.
C         G               D        G
And all your friends will be generally supportive
C           G        D
When you give your love to me.

G
I'm sick of hearing about sadness.
D/F#
I'm sick of violent crime.
Em
I'm sick of angry militant lesbian feminists.
A
I'm sick of imperfect rhyme.

C         G               D        G
I've always heard that we should love one another
C           D        G    rest 4beats
And what a fine example we would be.
C         G               D        G
Maybe we can start a trend or something
C         G        D        G
When you give your love to me.
C         G               D        G
And maybe we can get our friends together
C           D        G    rest 4beats
And they'll all get along famously.
C         G               D        G
I think that everyone will feel much better
C         G        D        G
When you give your love to me.
C         G               D        G
There'll be global peace and religious tolerance.
C           D        G    rest 4beats
All men as brothers in a world that's free.
C         G               D        G
There'll be a perfect cosmic harmonic convergence
C         G        D        G
When you give your love to me.
