E5                        C#5   B5    
When am I supposed to say so long?
E5                        C#5   B5
When am I supposed to say so long?

B5     F#5      C#5        B5      E
When I fall in love 'fore dusk is dawn
E        F#5     C#5     B5       E
When you take my hand across the lawn
E        F#5     C#5           B5       E
With the eyes so sweet they're like a fawn
   F#5  C#5    B5      E
Red elephant is wet & long...

E5                        C#5  B5
How am I supposed to wash you off?
E5                          C#5   B5
Rungs of bad poems I've hacked & coughed

B5     F#5     C#5     B5         E
But I have to spare a breath for you
E           F#5    C#5     B5     E
Which I'll take, before we make anew
     F#5         C#5       B5      E
Our hearts will take a stroll for two
    F#5        C#5     B5     E
Our feet will take the avenue
  F#5    C#5  B5      E     
& Walk in unison, so cute
     F#5  C#5     B5      E
Red elephant is turning blue

E5                        C#5    B5   
Why am I here when you're over there?
Let's meet at the fountains
In Dundas Square
Who am I supposed to be with you?
I'll wait 'til you say & pretend I knew

B5      F#5     C#5        B5          E
Because if it's true that walls can talk
How mine would brag of tears I've sobbed
When thinking of the way we walked
Along the paths of sideway chalk
Forever under ticking clock
Where you & I are free to flock

E5                           C#5   B5
What can I write when I know it's wrong?
Slapping my knee to my own damn song
Where can we go when the sinking stops?
To the pit of my chest
As it drops and drops...

          F#5  C#5    B5         E    
But your head upon my chest, it breathes
And my fingers through your hair they weave
And your shoulders are the perfect sea
In which I get lost invariably
Oh the elephant is up to sea
If it meets the peach fish underneath
& When I am you and you are me
We are stirred as spoons in lover's tea

Ab          F#             E
Whoa oh oh whoa oh whoa oh whoa 

The chord changes come fast and furious at the end, but thats about it.
