Intro:
Am F Dm G 	  	  	  	  	  Am 	    F   G 	  	  G
 	           Sha la la la la la la 	  	 uh huh...


Am  	  	  	     F  	    Dm  	  	 G
I was down at the New Amsterdam staring at this yellow-haired girl
    Am  	  	  	       F  	  	     G
Mr. Jones strikes up a conversation with this black-haired flamenco dancer
Am  	  	  	     F  	     Dm  	  	  	     G
She dances while his father plays guitar.  She's suddenly beautiful
   Am  	  	     F  	    G
We all want something beautiful, I wish I was beautiful


  Am  	  	  	    F
So come dance this silence down through the morning
Dm  	  	     G  	     Am  	   F  	     G 	  	  	 *
 	 Sha la la la la la la la  yeah 	  	 uh huh...
Am  	   F  	     Dm  	  	  	  G
Cut up, Maria!  Show me some of them Spanish dances
Am  	     F  	     G
Pass me a bottle, Mr. Jones
Am  	      F    Dm  	  	      G
Believe in me.  Help me believe in anything
 Am  	  	   F  	  	     G
'Cause I want to be someone who believes


C    F  	      G
Mr. Jones and me tell each other fairy tales
C  	  	  	      F
Stare at the beautiful women
G
"She's looking at you.  Ah, no, no, she's looking at me."

C  	  	    F  	  	  	 G
Smiling in the bright lights, coming through in stereo
     C  	    F  	  	   G
When everybody loves you, you can never be lonely


Am  	  	     F  	   Dm  	  	  	 G
I will paint my picture.  Paint myself in blue and red and black and gray
Am  	  	  	    F  	  	  	   G
All of the beautiful colors are very, very meaningful
     Am  	  	  	  F  	    Dm  	   G  	  	 *
(you know) Gray is my favorite color I felt so symbolic yesterday
Am  	  	 F  	  	   G
If I knew Picasso I would buy myself a gray guitar and play


C   F  	      G
Mr. Jones and me look into the future
C  	  	  	       F
Stare at the beautiful women
G
"She's looking at you.  Uh, I don't think so.  She's looking at me."
C  	  	      F  	   G
Standing in the spotlight I bought myself a gray guitar
     C  	    F  	  	  G  	  	  	    Am
When everybody loves me, I will never be lonely


     Am
I will never be lonely
  G
I will never be lonely


Am  	  	  	     F
I want to be a lion.  Everybody wants to pass as cats
Am  	  	  	  	  	  	   G
We All want to be big, big stars, but we got different reasons for that.
Am  	  	  	    	  F
Believe in me because I don't believe in anything
    Am  	  	  	  	  	  G
And I want to be someone to believe, to believe, to believe.


C   F  	      G
Mr. Jones and me stumbling through the barrio
  C  	  	  	  	  F
Yeah we stare at the beautiful women
 G
"She's perfect for you, man, there's got to be somebody for me."
C  	  	      F
I want to be Bob Dylan
   G
Mr. Jones wishes he was someone just a little more funky

     C  	    F  	  	   G
When everybody loves you, son, that's just about as funky as you can be.
Mr. Jones
Counting Crows


C    F  	      G
Mr. Jones and me staring at the video
 C  	  	      F  	  	      G
When I look at the television, I want to see me staring right back at me.
C  	  	  	 F  	  	  	 G
We all want to be big stars, but we don't know why, and we don't know how.
   C  	  	    F  	  	  	   	 G
But when everybody loves me, I'm going to be just about as happy as I can be.
C   F  	  	 G
Mr. Jones and me, we're gonna be big stars.....
