A                                                          Bm
Well excuse me, but I think you've got my chair,
Bm E                                                           A
No that one's not taken, I don't mind if you sit here,
A         D        E
I'll be glad to share.
E          A
Yea it's usually,
A                               Bm
Packed here on Friday nights,
Bm    E                                                      A      D 
Oh if you don't mind could I talk you out of a light?
E    A                                         Bm
Well thank you, could I drink you a buy?
Bm E                          Bm                              E
Oh listen to me, what I mean is can I buy you a drink?
E   A                      D  E
Anything you please.
E             A                                                       
Oh you're welcome, well I don't think I caught your name,
Bm        D             E               D
Are you waiting for someone to meet you here?
E                      Bm          E
Well that makes two of us,
E           A
Glad you came.
A      Bm                                   E                         
No I don't know the name of the band but they're good,
Aren't they, would you like to dance?
A       Bm                           E                                
Yea I like this song too, it reminds me of you and me baby
Do you think there's a chance?
A      Bm                   E
That later on, I could drive you home?
E   A                   D
No I don't mind at all,
D                E              D              E
Oh I like you too and to tell you the truth
E      Bm          E             A
That wasn't my chair after all.
A   D           E              D               E
Oh I like you too and to tell you the truth
E      Bm          E              A
That wasn't my chair after all.
