     " . . and send it to me?"    ENTER: Electric (acoustic still backs)

Continue with this through the second verse until right after he sings
"Make your dress all wet and send it to me?" during the second verse.
Then on to the bridge.

2nd verse:

     "Will you take off you dress             and send it to . . . "

    Back to verse for "I miss your soup, and I miss your bread . . . "

    Follow this with the chorus of D F G A for "Just wear that dress
when you di-i-i-i-ine."

    Then comes a second Bridge for some very narcissistic lyrics and
a very basic A G D progression of chords.

    Then back to acoustic intro. The rest of the song is pretty
self-explanatory, save for a few guitar lead inserts and other
effects.

    During the "D-A-V-I-D" section of the song, this fill is played
over and over about ten times.

|--------------------------------|--------------------------------|
|--------------------------------|--------------------------------|
|--------------------------------|--------------------------------|
|--------------------------------|--------------------------------|
|10----0---5b6-----0-------------|--------------------------------|
|--------------------------------|--------------------------------|

    This last fill is played near the end during the whole verse
and is almost inaudible. But it is there.

|--------------------------------|--------------------------------|
|14----------13----------14------|--------------------------------|
|14----14----14----14----14----14|--------------------------------|
|------14----------14----------14|--------------------------------|
|--------------------------------|--------------------------------|
|--------------------------------|--------------------------------|

It ends the song. Let this ring to end it.

|       |       |       |        |       |       |       |
