She'd Be Far Better Off With You

G D C ALEX I should never have come back here... GEORGE Oh, don't talk such nonsense! G D ALEX I'll bow out now -- C It's the decent thing to do. G GEORGE Don't be absurd. A ALEX I'm a disaster... C GEORGE Oh, come, come! Em C ALEX ...It wouldn't last a week -- D G She'd be far better off with you. G D C GEORGE You two have your lives before you. ALEX It would end in murder... G D GEORGE I'm too old for her -- C It's high time I withdrew. G ALEX Your place is here. A GEORGE The jowls are dropping... C ALEX It's the light. Em C GEORGE ...The paunch needs propping up -- D G She'd be far better off with you. A BOTH Your words are generous and selfless, C Em C But alas untrue -- D G She'd be far better off with you. G D C ALEX You are steeped in wit and wisdom. GEORGE Well, I've learnt the odd thing... G D C ALEX You could teach George Bernard Shaw A thing or two! G GEORGE I had a go... A ALEX You've dined with Garbo... C GEORGE Only twice. Em C ALEX ...Translated "La Boheme" -- D G She'd be far better off with you. G D GEORGE You're athletic. C ALEX You're distinguished.

Em BOTH Can't we be civilized? C D G She'd be far better off with you. A Your words are generous and selfless, C Em But alas untrue C D G It's only Rose that matters! A Just take a look; there's no comparison C Em Between us two -- C D G She'd be far better off with you!
