G
Hey pretty boy what's cha pulling on me
C                                D
Think you've got it all wrapped up
G
Lying in the shade of a Sycamore tree
C              D          G         
Sorry but it just ain't enough
G
You've got to do better then talk the big talk
C                      D
Occasionally couresty call
G                                      D
I ain't seen roses and I ain't see a thing
        C                      G
What's love got to do with it all
        C                  
If you want to steal a kiss 
                                     D
Then you've got to steal a piece of heart
C             
You're a pretty little boy But a stumbling fool 
            D
If you're going for a tumble in the dark

CHORUS:
C      D   G                     Em  
My Oh My Have you got a lot to learn
               A              A7
You've got to wrap me up in romance
G
Before you crash and burn
     C            D          Am            Em
And If you never call me to blow my heart away

Yippy Ki Yai  
   G                                                     D
(Yippie, yippie, yippie Ki Yai Yippie, yippie, yippie Ki Oh)
                        G                   
Wo    (If you want to dance to the rhythm of a country girl)
        C                  D         G 
      (Boy, you've fot a long way to go)


G                                       C               D
Would it hurt so much to open my door  Send me flowers too
G
Cause I believe in the love like the good book says
           C      D         G 
Not the gospel according to you
G
You can't two step around step number one
          C     
And then skip down to three or four
G                                   D
You can't touch me with a ten foot pole
C             D                G
Til you back off a little bit more

Go to chorus, then bridge,

BRIDGE:
Em
I know what you want and there are times I want it too
           D
But I'm looking for a gentlemen who know just what to do.
       Em
I can take the boots and jeans and even your beat up cadillac
              D
But when it comes to what a woman needs you ain't no Cary Grant.
