The book of love is long and boring
G          C        D    G
No one can lift the damn thing
G            C                    G
It's full of charts and facts and figures

and instructions for dancing
G     C  D  G
But I........
G         C        D    G
I love it when you read to me
G       C   D   G
And you..........
G   C           D  G
You can read me anything

G          C       D        G
Some of it is just transcendental
G             C    D      G
Some of it is just really dumb

But I........
G         C        D       G
I love it when you sing to me
G       C   D   G
And you..........
G       C       D     G
You can sing me anything

The book of love is long and boring
G       C        D    G
And written very long ago
G            C           D            G
It's full of flowers and heart-shaped boxes
G                C       D     G
And things we're all too young to know
G     C  D  G
But I........
G         C        D       G
I love it when you give me things
G       C   D   G
And you..........
G            C       D       G
You ought to give me wedding rings
G    C  D  G
And I.......
G         C        D       G
I love it when you give me things
G       C   D   G
And you..........
G            C       D       G
You ought to give me wedding rings
G    C  D  G
And I.......
G         C        D       G
I love it when you give me things
G       C   D   G
And you..........
G            C       D       G
You ought to give me wedding rings
G            C       D       G
You ought to give me wedding rings
