Verse 1:F#m Bm Once upon a time there was a princess man D F#m He had the special powers of the checkout scan F#m Bm He could price out any product from the UPCs D F#m But he couldn't see the forest for the symmetries F#m Bm A perfect paranoia now engulfs my pets D F#m That I'm using them as simple social safety nets F#m Bm I wish this loneliness upon myself, I'm told D F#m Cause both puppy chow and vengeance are a dish served coldF#m D Meeting with the neighbor traps you in a chat F#m E The dog is kind of bored until she lays down flat F#m A E I just walk out and wander like a floating bag D And a city dog can always get a hearty wag
Verse 2:F#m Bm So face it, you can't win, who has to try this hard? D F#m I guess the ace that's in my sleeve is just a pity card F#m Bm But I know I rod e a camel from this camera shot D F#m And I must've had some sexy times that I forgot F#m Bm I wait to fall in love, I wait to see Brazil D F#m I wait to see if plants survive my windowsill F#m Bm I wait to see the Northern lights I always missed D F#m Like chicken breast, it's piled in my bucket listF#m D But with laughter and with pain that's a broken heart F#m E When happy ever after is the way it starts F#m A E But if there's potholes in the rock and roll I tell D At least it's still a pothole on the road to hell
