OPTIONS (Elliott C. Michaels)

Moderately slow power-pop in key of D

D Bm F#m G A
It’s no secret I’ve been eyeing your lady for quite some time,

D Bm F#m G A
But it seems these days she’s got nothing but you on her lovin’ mind.

Em F#m
Well, as long as you’re good to her I won’t interfere,

G G A
But if you don’t treat her right, let me make myself clear,

Bm Em
She’s got Options … yes, it’s time that you see,

Bm Em
She’s got Options … I think her best one is me,

G F#m
She’s got Options … and I’m tellin’ you true,

Em A
Don’t ruin the best thing ever happened to you.

D
She’s got a will of her own,

Bm F#m G A
She’s strong enough to be flexible and not overbearing.

D
She’s got the heart of a saint,

Bm F#m G A
For she can handle your worst and still be loving and caring.

Em F#m
Yet you keep her at arm’s length but cling so tight,

G G A
Buddy, doin’ that to this one just isn’t right.

Bm Em
She’s got Options … yes, it’s time you took heed,

Bm Em
She’s got Options … you’d better follow my lead,

G F#m
She’s got Options … man, you’re losin’ your grip,

Em A
You oughta take my advice or else you’re sure gonna slip.

F#m
Now, I don’t have your money or your dashing good looks,

Bm
And I don’t drive a fancy car,

F#m
But I know how to satisfy a first-class woman,

Bm
And that’s more important by far!

F#m
I know you and your lady perceive me as crazy,

Bm
And she barely knows I’m alive.

Em
But you heard it right here, you’d better treat the girl dearly,

G A
Or your love ain’t gonna survive!

Bm Em Bm Em
She’s got Options! … Oh, yeah!

G F#m Em A

D Bm
Now, when a girl comes along like the one you’re with,

F#m G A
Why would you take her for granted?

D Bm
A lady like that could make you happy for life,

F#m G A
How come you don’t understand it?

Em F#m
I can’t stand by idly while you treat her this way,

G G A
For she deserves so much more and I’ve got something to say.

Bm Em
She’s got Options … yes, it’s time that you knew,

Bm Em
She’s got Options … and yours are just about through!

G F#m
She’s got Options … I’m movin’ in for the kill,

Em A
And I’m gonna prove that I love her for real.

Bm Em
She’s got Options … and now she’s opened her eyes,

Bm Em
She’s got Options … she’s gonna exercise!

G F#m
She’s got Options … it’s time to make up your mind,

Em A
For she’s about to come with me and leave you behind.

Bm Em Bm Em
She’s got Options … Options … Options … hear what I say,

Bm Em Bm Em (hold for coda)
She’s got Options … Options … Optio-o-o-o-ons!
