Graham Parker – Silly Thing lyrics

E A / E A / E A / E B7 A

A E
You want me be someone better
A E
I just wanna monkey 'round yeah
A E
You want me to write you a letter
A E A E
But the words just won't come the right way
A E B
My pen won't listen to a thing that I say

E A E A E A E A
Silly thing hey hey silly thing hey hey
A B7 E A
Well it don't mean a thing if you ain't got that swing
A B7 E A E A E A E B7 A
Silly thing hey hey yeah hey hey.

Maybe you're getting sloppy
Under the midday sun oh yeah.
You come on like a carbon copy
But I just wanna hang to the way you live.
Don't you want the love I got to give

Silly thing hey hey silly thing hey hey
Well it don't mean a thing if you ain't got that swing
Silly thing hey hey yeah hey hey.

Sax solo

A E A E
Well I just wanna hang to the way you live.
A E B
Don't you want the love I got to give

Silly thing hey hey silly thing hey hey
Well it don't mean a thing if you ain't got that swing
Silly thing hey hey yeah hey hey.
I said you don't-a mean a thing if you ain't got that swing
Silly thing hey hey repeat and fade
