G (320003@1)                                                 Dmin7
Oh What a shame that your pockets did bleed on St. Valentine's.
                                                GAnd (320003@1)you sat in a chair thinking "Boy I'm Such a Prince!"
                                            Dmin7
Well Life's a train that goes from February on day by day
                                 GBut (320003@1)it's making a stop on April First.

Chorus:
    Cmaj7 (x32000@1)             G (320003@1)       Cmaj7 (x32000@1)                  GAnd (320003@1)you will believe in love and all that it's supposed to be
     Cmaj7 (x32000@1)        A7 (x02020@1)         A7Sus4        Am7 (x02010@1)                 D7But (xx0212@1)just until the fish start to smell and you're struck down by a hammer

G (320003@1)                                                              Dm7
Sure you were swift when the handsome greek boys dropped by with gifts
                                          Gyou (320003@1)are suave thanks to ribbons that open sesame
                                               Dm7
But in the stars and closer to home and every planet it ain't hard
                         GFor (320003@1)me and dear Jo Jo to see.

(Chorus)

Am (x02210@1)                   D (xx0232@1)                                             GWondering (320003@1)if there's clouds (wondering if there's clouds and stuff) in hell
