Flirting in the 21st Century

D A Bm G A D

[D] I have been a while now hibernating

When I saw you at the party I started awakening

[G] I found myself asking you friend if you were [D] single

[G] When she said that you were my [Em] body started to [A] tingle

 

Chorus

And I [D] frowned as I walked [A] home

[Bm] Thinking about you begin [G] all alone

It's a [D] cold winters [A] night and you got

[Bm] no one to cuddle you it [G] doesn't seem right.

 

[D] Hey la dee 'n' [G] da

[Bm] I just saw a [G] shooting star or it [D] could have been a [A] satellite

[Bm] Wishing on space junks [G] maybe not right but

[Em] I made a wish any [A] way

 

[Bm] And if it was a [G] surveillance craft

[Bm] Orbiting above taking [G] photographs

[Bm] What it would see as [G] it zoomed in

Was my [Em] steadily growing [A] grin

'cause I'm back in the game again

 

D A Bm G A D

 

They say that you should not judge a book by it's cover

well I want to open you with a view to discover

the story there inside your pages

there's no rush these things are best done in stages

 

 

Chorus 2

and I smiled as I walked home

'cause I got your number it's in my phone

is it wrong to feel such elation

for a bunch of digital information

 

Hey la dee 'n' da

I just saw a shooting star or it could have been a satellite

Wishing on space junks maybe not right but

I made a wish any way

 

And if it was a surveillance craft

Orbiting above taking photographs

What it would see as it zoomed in

Was my steadily growing grin

'cause I'm back in the game again

 

D A Bm G A D

 

I called you the next day and we went walking

From Bondi Beach through Coogee we were talking

On the surface it was a whole lot of idle chat

With a rich subtext and flickering eye contact

 

 

Chorus3

and it's such a beautiful day

Sydney winter's non existent

Well maybe it's climate change

Is it wrong of me not to think about that today

Hey la dee 'n' dee

I like you and you like me

Where do you wann go?

There's no path along this stretch of coast

But let's go on anyway

 

And [Bm] if there was a [G] surveillance craft

[Bm] above taking [G] photographs

[Bm] What it would see as from [G] way up there

Is [Bm] me leading the [G] way with care

 

[Em] Around the headlands [A] by the sea

[Em] Hoping for the [A] opportunity

To [Em] see you smile and [A] accept my hand

As I [Em] lead you over this [A] rocky land

[Bm] Round the rockpools [A] left by the tide

There's a [Bm] whole [A] universe inside

The [Bm] surface [A] flickering with light

It's [Bm] got us both [A] mesmerised

On a [Em] winters day that [A] feels like spring

We [Em] stand holding hands and [A] grin

At the beautiful game we're in

 

Hey la dee 'n' dee

I like you and you like me

We don't know where it's gonna go

And right now all we need to know

Is it's the 21st century

And I'm flirting with you and you're flirting with me
