Intro: A B E A   E A B-

          A               B
Well, she said all along, I'm her one
  E                         A
A little fingernail polish, chewin' gum
    E                             A                B
Her round the world heart made of platinum, that's right

                 A                B
She looks like a China doll baby, especially in white
E                         A
A tropicana flower in the candlelight
    E                          A             B
She turned into a pumpkin pie, sweet kiss at midnight

F#m            B
    She moves, oh so fine
E                      A
  She's like a perfect valentine
F#m              B
She's not one to fall in love
E                     A              B
She's too high on the stars above at night

                     A             B
She wants to be your red-hot mama, all alone
    E                           A
She dances with the boys on the telephone
    E                           A            B
She makes a lotta noise in the quiet zone at night

                       A                   B
Yeah, you talk about a party at the beach, ain't that grand
    E                           A
She just took a raincheck with another man
    E                      A              B
Who lay on the deck of his catamaran some night

F#m            B
    She moves, oh so fine
E                      A
  She's like a perfect valentine
F#m              B
She's not one to fall in love
E                     A              B
She's too high on the stars above at night

ADLIB: A B E A    E A B-

        A                        B
Well, I can't tell you much, but what I know (what I know)
E                                A
You can't take her with you when it's time to go
           E                          A             B
'Cause she knows where it's at with a Romeo, you'll see

F#m            B
    She moves, oh so fine
E                      A
  She's like a perfect valentine
F#m              B
She's not one to fall in love
E                     A              B
She's too high on the stars above at night

F#m           B
    She moves
E
 Just like a perfect valentine
F#m              B
She's not one to fall in love
E                     A              B
She's too high on the stars above at night
