[Verse 1]
C                       Am
You and I were meant to be
(Am)                       G
Even though you don't know me
(G)                     F
I don't even know your name
(F)                            E   E7
And do you think that you know mine?
C                       Am
You were lonely, I was bored
(Am)                          F
I may be more than you can afford
(F)                          E   E7
But I'm sure we'll meet halfway

    G    G7             F
And I've got this crazy feeling
                      Am   G   Dadd9/F#  D7
you've been trying to get  to  me
When all you have to do is calmly

C       Cb6/E  C        Gm6
Call me        call me

[Verse 2]
Basic service: sixty bucks
I'll roll the dice, you try your luck
A pair gets me a week in rent
And a straight gets even more
I'm no good at playing cards
I hold my dates in high regard
Pay up front and ye shall receive

Love is never in-between
if it isn't one thing, then
it's always something else
F                 G
I don't even know what I mean
I thought that it was nothing, but now I
can't find nothing else
Am  G                Dadd9/F#  D7  Fm7
Oh,    you can't hide
But at least you tried to

Call me, call me, call me

Are you ashamed of what you've done?
All we did was have some fun
I won't judge and I won't tell
And I'll forget you when you've gone
I pity all you working stiffs,
Living wondering "what if?"
"What if someday I was free?"

Call me, call me

C, Cb6/E, C, Gm6, C (x2)

[End on C]
