well you walked into the party like you were walking onto a yacht
         Em                                        C                G
your hat strategically dipped beneath one eye your scarf it was apricot
        C       D      G      Em      C                  G
you had one eye on the mirror and you watched yourself a lot
            D                 Cadd9
and all the boys dreamed that they'd be your partner, they'd be your partner yeah

G Cadd9 G D Em* C D*

         Em                            C                   G
well you had me several years ago when i was still quite naive
        Em                                       C                    G
and you said that we made such a pretty pair and that you would never leave
        C    D        G          Em        C               G
but you gave away the things you loved and one of them was me
           D                 Cadd9
i had some dreams there were clouds in my coffee clouds in my coffee yeah

G Cadd9 G D Em* C D* D7

       Em                                      C                    G
well i heard that you went off to Saratoga and your horse naturally won
             Em                                             C                    G
and then you chartered a Lear jet to Nova Scotia to see the total eclipse of the sun
            C      D         G         Em  C                      G
