 Bass Intro
 
 1.
 A             Bm7
 You gave me a pet name
 Dmaj7                  Bm7
 Which is not to say I liked it
 A           Bm7
 We met at a party
 Dmaj7              Bm7
 Not to say I was invited
 Cmaj7           Dmaj7
 You say, love is just a lie.
           Cmaj7                Dmaj7
 But I can tell that you were lying
 
 Pre-chorus
           A              G               Bm
 And we've almost figured out how we get along
                      F               G/F
 And given time we'll find it strange to be alone
 
 2.
 A             Bm7
 You work in a hotel
 Dmaj7               Bm7
 At the magazine concession
 A                Bm7
 Back in just five minutes
 Dmaj7                     Bm7
 Reads the sign above your station
 Cmaj7                 Dmaj7
 Slip your profits in a bag
            Cmaj7            Dmaj7
 And you're looking up to the hour hand
 
 Pre-chorus
           A              G               Bm
 And we've almost figured out how we get along
                      F               G/F
 And given time we'll find it strange to be alone and
 
 Chorus
 A                 C#                  D
 You just forgot your one pet name for me,
 A                    C#                  D
 And all those promises you said you'd keep.
                 B                                    D
 But it's a lucky thing, because that sentimental stuff doesn't 
 D
 Suit you at all

 3.
 A              Bm7
 Waiting at the bus stop
 Dmaj7              Bm7
 For just about an hour
 A            Bm7
 Strategies for hangman
 Dmaj7              Bm7
 Cat's cradle, origami
 Cmaj7               Dmaj7
 You say I'm OK for a guy
          Cmaj7                 Dmaj7
 But I can tell that you are lying
 
 Pre-chorus
           A              G               Bm
 And we've almost figured out how we get along
                      F               G/F
 And given time we'll find it strange to be alone and
 
 Chorus
 A                 C#                  D
 You just forgot your one pet name for me,

 And all those promises you said you'd keep.
                B                                     D

 A                 C#                  D
 You just forgot your one pet name for me,
 A                    C#                  D
 And all those promises you said you'd keep.
                 B                              D
 But it's a lucky thing, because that sentimental stuff
 D
 Doesn't suit you at all

I fixed up these chords to correct a few Bm's which should have
 been B's and also to make the transcription more accurate by showing 
the 7 and maj7 chords that are used in this song.
