Verse 1GI’m gonna take my time to say

EmI’m gonna take what comes my way
CTake what they give me
GYeah, I want my money now
DBut he is not around
EmYou better hold my money safe
CWhat's your emergency?ChorusGAnd for the first time in my life
DI’m gonna get myself right
EmJust get into trouble
CBe there on the double

Verse 2GPlace your bets this time
DJust has to let it ride
EmI tr- I tried to take a roll
CBut the dice are on parole
GI won't look down your dress
DI bet you bend down as a test
EmI cannot wait to chase it all
CYeah, I saw it in my crystal ballBridgeGFriday night is shining like
DA secret for a spy
EmI got a better idea
CI'll bet you on the side
GWhen I get up in your face
DYou know it’s no surprise
EmAh baby, why's it so hard to Cread the sentence in my eyes?
Chorus 2GAnd for the first time
DChains on your legs
EmI spent a while
CThen decided on you
GMy baby doll
DYou ignored your life
EmWe’ll do it together
CI’ll be there wheneverVerse 3GOh, you took a minute break
DAnd said, "thumbs up, they’re okay."
EmI’m going to watch the tidal wave
CIt’s hard to chase away
