[Am]I was scared of [G]dentists and the [C]dark,

You're the [Am]magicians as[G]sistant in their [C]dreams.

[Am]Ooh, [G]ooh [C]ooh  
[Am]Ooh, [G]and they [C]come unstuck

[Am]Lady, [G]running down to the [C]riptide,
[C]taken away to the [Am]dark side,
[G]I wanna be your [C]left hand man.
I [Am]love you [G]when you're singing that [C]song and,
[C]I got a lump in my [Am]throat 'cause
[G]you're gonna sing the words [C]wrong

[Am]There's this movie [G]that I think you'll [C]like,
this [Am]guy decides to [G]quit his job and [C]heads to New York City,
this [Am]cowboy's [G]running from him[C]self.
And [Am]she's been living [G]on the highest [C]shelf

[Am]Ooh, [G]ooh [C]ooh  
[Am]Ooh, [G]and they [C]come unstuck

I was scared of dentists and the dark,
I was scared of pretty girls and starting conversations,
Oh all my friends are turning green,
You're the magicians assistant in their dreams.

Ooh, ooh ooh
Ooh, and they come unstuck

Lady, running down to the riptide,
taken away to the dark side,
I wanna be your left hand man.
I love you when you're singing that song and,
I got a lump in my throat 'cause
you're gonna sing the words wrong

There's this movie that I think you'll like,
this guy decides to quit his job and heads to New York City,
this cowboy's running from himself.
And she's been living on the highest shelf

Ooh, ooh ooh
Ooh, and they come unstuck

Lady, running down to the riptide,
taken away to the dark side,
I wanna be your left hand man.
I love you when you're singing that song and,
I got a lump in my throat 'cause
you're gonna sing the words wrong

I just wanna, I just wanna know,
If you're gonna, if you're gonna stay,
I just gotta, I just gotta know,
I can't have it, I can't have it any other way

I swear she's destined for the screen,
Closest thing to Michelle Pfeiffer that you've ever seen, oh

Lady, running down to the riptide,
taken away to the dark side,
I wanna be your left hand man.
I love you when you're singing that song and,
I got a lump in my throat 'cause
you're gonna sing the words wrong

Lady, running down to the riptide,
taken away to the dark side,
I wanna be your left hand man.
I love you when you're singing that song and,
I got a lump in my throat 'cause
you're gonna sing the words wrong

Lady, running down to the riptide,
taken away to the dark side,
I wanna be your left hand man.
I love you when you're singing that song and,
I got a lump in my throat 'cause
you're gonna sing the words wrong
I got a lump in my throat 'cause you're gonna sing the words wrong.
