       CWell (x32010@1)I never been lucky
   F (133211@1)        Cat (x32010@1)pickin' up women.
     F (133211@1)         CThis (x32010@1)life that I live
       D7 (xx0212@1)       Gis (320003@1)not one that I choose.

F (133211@1)       CShe (x32010@1)was a waitress,
     F (133211@1)             Cwith (x32010@1)hair blonde and curly,
       F (133211@1)          Cwith (x32010@1)a pretty black dress,
          G (320003@1)      Cand (x32010@1)those japanese shoes.


        G (320003@1) Man I need to impress her,
             F (133211@1)       C (x32010@1) 'cause I'd like to undress her.
           F (133211@1)        C (x32010@1) I need a song about Sonya
           G (320003@1)       C (x32010@1) when I'm singin' tonight.

Well she looked so pretty
as she poured my coffee,
but she had her eye
on my friend at the bar.

And I watched her watch him,
and I watched her thinkin'.
F (133211@1)          GI (320003@1)wished her eye
       Cwas (x32010@1)on me.


And if I could sing her
a tender love ballad,
I'd hope the audience
might sing along.

But I can't find the right way
to tell her my feelings,
and still make the words
rhyme with Sonya.

I never been lucky
at pickin up women
This life that I live
is not one that I choose.

She was a waitress.
Now she's gone forever,
and I'm stuck with this song
that I never will use.

  Man you need to impress her
  if you want to undress her.
  Sing a song about Sonya
  when you're singin' tonight
  Sing a song about Sonya
  when you're singin' tonight.
