1. O Ms Deity

†††††† D††††††††††††† A ††††††A A

this life is so tough

††††††††††††††††† A††††††††††††††† ††††EE E7

Donít you know itís not easy

†††††††††††††† E7†††††††††††††††††† AA A7---

trying to be your good man.

††††† (A7)††† ††††††††D ††††††††DD

Ms Deity Iím hoping

†††††††††† D††††††††† †††††††AA A

that it could be enough

†††††† †††A†††††††††††††† ††††††E†††E E7

just to keep my eyes open

†††††††††† E7††††††††† †††A†† A A7---

and to do what I can.

†††††††††††††† D††††† D D

2. O Ms Deity,

†††††† D††††††††††††† †††††††††A†††††† A A

you dance and you shake

†††††††††††††††† ††A††††††††††††††† ††E†††††††††E E7

and thereís whistling and howling

†††††††††† E7†††††††††††††††††† A†† A A7---

everywhere that you go

††††† (A7)††† †††††††††††††††D†††††††† DD

And you just smile sweetly

††††††††† †††††D††††††††† †††A†††††††††††A A

You say ďby golly now, thenĒ

†††††† ††††††††A††††††††††††††††††† E†††† EE7

and you leave in your wake

†††††††††† E7††††††††† †††††††††A††† AA7---

such destruction and woe

††††††††††††††††††††††† D†††††††† D

Chorus: Iíve lost my reason -

†††††† D†††††††††††††††††† D

Iíve given up my freedom

††††† D†††††††††††††† †††††††D †††††††††††††††A†††††† A

just trying to get a read on Ms Deity.

††† D††††††††††† D††††† D D †††††††††A†††††††††† A††††† F#m F#m

It tears me up inside how I tried & I tried & I tried

†††† D††††††††††† D†††††††††††††††† D††††††††††††††† D

I end at the start with a mooshed up heart

††††† D †††††††††††D††††††††††††††† E†† E E7---

but o what a wonderful ride

††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††D††††† D D

3. Ms Deity, have pity!

†††††† D††††††††††† ††††††A†††††† A A

You hold all the cards

†††††††††††††† A†††††††††††††† EE E7

and you look at the faces

†††††††††††††† E7†††††††††††††† A†† A A7---

and you make up the rules.

††††† (A7)††† ††††††††D†††††††† DD

Would it be so hard? -

††D††††††††† ††††††††††A†††††††A A

if you could just slip me

†††††† †††A†††††††††† †††E†††† EE7

just a couple of aces,

†††††††† E7†††††† A††† AA7---

thatíd be so cool.




†††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††D††††† D D

4. Ms Deity, itís cruel -

††† †††††††††††††††D††††††††††††† †††††††A†††††† A A

thought my glass was half empty;

†††††††††††††† A†††††††††††††† E†††E E7

you said no thatís wrong,

††††††††† †††E7†††††††† A†† A A7---

said the glass is full.

††††† †††††(A7)††† †††††D†††††††† DD

Sang a different song

†††††††† ††††††††D††††††††† †††A†††††††A A

once you started to tempt me

†††††† †††††A††††††††††††††† E†††† EE7

Felt as drunk as a fool

†††††††††† ††E7††††††††† †††A††† AA7---

and had no glass at all.




††† †††††D††††††††††††††† D

Tag: Is she only teasing?

††††† E†††††††††† E7††††††††††††††† A††††††† A A A---

itís so hard pleasing Ms Deity.




Extra verse: O Ms Deity,

I think itís important

since I know I canít hide

Gonna come out and say

Iím working hard really

to make it my fortune

just to be by your side

at the end of the day
