A

Like a child whoís just found out:

E

Momís a different person from me!

A

Like a game of peekaboo

E†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

(Sheís there, though sheís gone somewhere I canít see.)

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† E

I lie in our bed wondering do you still love me?

†††††††††††††††††††††††† D†††††††††††††††††††††††††† E

What happens next?Tell me the story.

 

A††††††††††††††††† ††B7†† E†††††††††††††††††††† D

Tell me the story, one Iíve often heard.

A†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† B7†† E†††††††††††††††††††† D

Tell me with your eyes, tell me using words.

A††††††††††††††††††† B7†††††† E††††††††††††††††††††† D

I have felt it glowing, I have seen it shine.

D†††††††††††††††††††† E†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A††††

I know it well, but tell me one more time.

 

A†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† E

Ask me once, do I know the capital of Delaware?

A†††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††E

Itís Dover!And when Goldilocks sat in the chair

A††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† E

it was too hard - too soft - just right!

†††††††††††††††††††††††† D††††††††††††††††††††††††† E

What happens next?Tell me the story.
