if you were perfectly empathic   Dm7 C#dim7 G7  
you would have known it wasn’t really necessary Em7b5 Em7b5 A7 A7
to have hit me with that frying pan   Dm7 C#dim7 G7  
just because I am a lying man   Fm6 Fm6 G7        F#7 F7     E7
and truth is stranger than fiction to me G#7 G7 Dm7 G7
I’m picturing being happy again   Cmaj7   F7  
Like I was before my head got bashed in Dm7 C#dim7 G7  
             
If we were perfectly ecstatic   Dm7 C#dim7 G7  
Lost in the throes of some divine and rapturous passion Em7b5 Em7b5 A7 A7
Making love just like celebrities   Dm7 C#dim7 G7  
Would you question my sincerity   Fm6 Fm6 G7        F#7 F7     E7
If I said baby I'm head over heels   G#7 G7 Dm7 G7
Oh how it feels just lying in bed   Cmaj7   F7  
Or would you take your frying pan to my head Dm7 G7 C         C B         Bb
             
Let me tell you baby it's really true A7   G#7  
Lying to you never got me very far   Dm7 G7 C         C B         Bb
Now I’m wondering maybe if you are through A7   G#7  
Turning the screw, you could tell me who you are Dm7 G7 C         C B         Bb
             
instr. solo     Dm7 C#dim7 G7  
      Em7b5 Em7b5 A7 A7
      Dm7 C#dim7 G7  
      Fm6 Fm6 G7        F#7 F7     E7
      G#7 G7 Dm7 G7
      Cmaj7   F7  
      Dm7 G7 C         C B         Bb
             
Let me tell you baby it's really true A7   G#7  
Lying to you never got me very far   Dm7 G7 C         C B         Bb
Now I’m wondering maybe if you are through A7   G#7  
Turning the screw, you could tell me who you are Dm7 G7 C           
If you were perfectly empathic   Dm7 G#7 C6
