Don't t[D]ell me you don't know what [F#m]love is
when you're o[Bm]ld enough to, know b[F#m]etter.
When you fin[Bm]d strange hands in your sw[Em]eater, when,
your dream[F#m]boat turns o[B]ut to be a footnote,
I'm a [Em]man with a, mission in t[F#m]wo or three ed[A]itions,

I[D]'m g[F#m]iving you a [G]long lo[A]ok ev'ryd[D]ay, ev'ryd[F#m]ay,    
ev'ry[G]day, ev'ry[A]day I write the [D]book, [F#m]    [G]    [A]    

Chapter one[Bm], we didn't really get along, Chapter two[D],  
I think I fe[F#m]ll in love with y[D]ou  [-].   [G]    
[A]you s[Bm]aid you'd stand by me in the
middle of Chapter three, but you were u[Em]p to your old tricks in Chapters
f[F#m]our, five, and s[A]ix,  

I[D]'m g[F#m]iving you a [G]long lo[A]ok ev'ryd[D]ay, ev'ryd[F#m]ay,    
ev'ryd[G]ay, ev'ryd[A]ay I write the bo[D]ok. [F#m]    

The way you [Bm]walk, the way you talk,
and try t[D]o kiss me[F#m] and la[D]ugh i[G]n four or [A]five paragraphs.
[Bm]All your compliments and your,
cutting remar[Em]ks are capture[F#m]d here in [A]my quotation marks,

I[D]'m g[F#m]iving you a [G]long lo[A]ok ev'ryd[D]ay, ev'ryd[F#m]ay,    
ev'ry[G]day, ev'ry[A]day I write the [D]book, [F#m]    [G]    [A]    

Don't te[D]ll me you don't know the dif[F#m]f'rence,
betw[Bm]een a lover and a fi[F#m]ghter,
With my p[Bm]en and my electric typewr[Em]iter, even i[F#m]n a    
even [F#m]in a perfect world where ev[B]'ryone was equal,
I'd still [Em]own the film rights,
and be wo[F#m]rking on the se[A]quel,

I[D]'m g[F#m]iving you a [G]long lo[A]ok ev'ryd[D]ay, ev'ryd[F#m]ay,    
ev'ryd[G]ay, ev'ryd[A]ay I write the bo[Bm]ok.   

[F#m]    [G]    [A]    [D]    [F#m]    [G]    [A]    
I[D]'m g[F#m]iving you a [G]long lo[A]ok ev'ryd[D]ay, ev'ryd[F#m]ay,    
ev'ry[G]day, ev'ry[A]day I write the [D]book, [F#m]    [G]    [A]    

Ev'ry[D]day, ev'ry[F#m]day, ev'ry[G]day, ev'ry[A]day I write the book.

Don't tell me you don't know what love is
when you're old enough to, know better.
When you find strange hands in your sweater, when,
your dreamboat turns out to be a footnote,
I'm a man with a, mission in two or three editions,

I'm giving you a long look ev'ryday, ev'ryday,
ev'ryday, ev'ryday I write the book,

Chapter one, we didn't really get along, Chapter two,
I think I fell in love with you[-].
you said you'd stand by me in the
middle of Chapter three, but you were up to your old tricks in Chapters
four, five, and six,

I'm giving you a long look ev'ryday, ev'ryday,
ev'ryday, ev'ryday I write the book.

The way you walk, the way you talk,
and try to kiss me and laugh in four or five paragraphs.
All your compliments and your,
cutting remarks are captured here in my quotation marks,

I'm giving you a long look ev'ryday, ev'ryday,
ev'ryday, ev'ryday I write the book,

Don't tell me you don't know the diff'rence,
between a lover and a fighter,
With my pen and my electric typewriter, even in a
even in a perfect world where ev'ryone was equal,
I'd still own the film rights,
and be working on the sequel,

I'm giving you a long look ev'ryday, ev'ryday,
ev'ryday, ev'ryday I write the book.


I'm giving you a long look ev'ryday, ev'ryday,
ev'ryday, ev'ryday I write the book,

Ev'ryday, ev'ryday, ev'ryday, ev'ryday I write the book.
