†††††††††††† G†††††††††††† F††††††††††††† C††††††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††† F†††††††††††††† C

1. We donít like this manís policy.††† We donít think heís telling the truth.

G†††††††††††††† F††††††††††††† C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G†††††††† F††††††††††††††††††† C

Heís in the pay of unspeakable slime.His velvet tongue hides a sharkís tooth.

†††††††††††††† D†††††††††††† F†††† G††††††††††††††††††††† D††††††††††† F††††††††††††††††††††††† G††††

But his voice is so reassuringthat we want the words to make sense.

†††††††††††††† D††††††††† F†††††††††††††††† †††C††††††††††††††††††††† GFCG F C

And we vote for him cause we like his confidence.

 

††††††††††††† G†††††† F††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††† F††††††††††† C

2. In an artsy bar, a smart womanis watching her date converse.

††††† †††††G†††††††††††††††††† F†††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††† F††††††††† C

Sheís promised herself she wonít get involved with men who seem too well rehearsed.

††††††††††† D††††††††††† F††††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††††††† ††††D††††††††††††††††††††††† F††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††

But he keeps on saying heís sensitive.After four drinks, she still feels tense,

††††††††††† D††††††††† F††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††† GFCG F C

and it feels so good to relax in his confidence.

 

†††††††††††††††††††††††††† D††††††† E†††††††††††† F#†††††††††††† D†††††††††† E††††††††† F#††††

Bridge: When he gets rude and meanyou say you like his spunk,

†††††††† D††††† E††††††† F#††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G††††† F#

while I try really hard; you donít even thank me.

††††††††††††††††† D†††† E†††††††††† F#††††† D†††††††††† E†††††† F#††††

Well itís a thin line betweena bastard and a hunk

†††††† G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††A††††† A#†††† GFCG F C

and he can bring it off, and I canítand that makes me angry.††††††††††††††††

 

†††††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††† F††††† C†††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††† F††††††††††††††††††††† C

3. This commercial is so insulting;the sound blares to break your eardrum.

††††††† G††††††††††††††† F†††††††††††††††† C††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G††††††††† F††††††††† C

The productís claims are so ludicrous - do they really think Iím that dumb?

††††††††††††††††††† D††††††††††† F††††† ††††††††††G††††††††††††††† D††††††††††††† F††††††††††† G††††††††††††

But when I see that brand on the counter,a voice like a distant friendís

†††††††††† D†††††††††††††† F†††††††††††††††††† C††††††††††††††††††††††††† GFCG F C

says ďYou know me - come on into my††† confidence.Ē
