8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
This song is in the key of G.
I have an ear for music,  And I have an eye for a maid.
I like a pretty girlie,  With each pretty tune that's played.
They go together, like sunny weather,  Goes with the month of May.
I've studied girls and music,  So I'm qualified to say:
A pretty girl is like a melody,
That haunts you night and day.
Just like the strain of a haunting refrain,
She'll start upon a marathon, And run around your brain,
You can't escape she's in your memory,
By morning, night and noon,
She will leave you and then come back again,
A pretty girl is just like a pretty tune.
