       A6
You're kind

          A9
You're so kind

    D                     
You rescued me when I was blind

        A        
And you put me on your pillow

     D        
When I was on the wall

       A        E        A    
You're kind, so kind, so kind


           A6
And you're good

          A9
You're so good

    D                                  
You introduced me to your neighborhood

A                            
Seems like I ain't never had

D        
so many friends before

         A       
That's because you're good

E           A       
  You're so good


Bmaj7          
      Why you don't treat me like

    E
the other humans do

          A7         E     
Is just a mystery to me

Bmaj7                     E 
      It gets me agitated when I think that

             A9            F#
You're gonna love me now indefinitely


       B        A9
So goodbye, goodbye

         E             
I'm gonna leave you now

                      
And here's the reason why


          B9       
I like to sleep with the window open

        E 
And you keep the window closed

       B        F#       B
So goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

    E7       B9  
Oh, oh,  oh, oh

B7     E7       B9  B7  
   Oh, oh,  oh, oh

E7                
   doot doot doot doot doot

    B9  B7  F#6                             B  A6  A9  
oh, oh,     doo doo doo doo doo  doo doo
