1. I’m in love with the goddess who… lives down the street

           C                          G
I’ve got clouds on my agenda and a spring in my feet

       A7                  C        G
and I wonder if she knows, if she knows.

I am smiling at strangers like I usually will

like a cat with a canary who will surely fit the bill
and I wonder if she knows, if she knows.
 Em                            A7                                          

What am I thinking?  I’ve got too much to do!

      C                                G

I’ve got no time to go running after dreams or chasing after you 

                  Em                      A7                              

but there’s this sleepy sense that everything’s gonna work out right.

       C                    D7

May I visit you tonight?  Starlight, star bright!

 


2. I am in love with the goddess who lives down the street
Well, the girl may work at Waffle House, but she doesn’t miss a beat (laugh)
so I wonder if she’ll hear what I propose.
‘Cause I just wanna make her happy, no, I don’t wanna lay no claim
If there’s damage to be done, I am no good at taking blame
and I wonder if she knows.

Ay, yi, yi yi, di di, di… Starlight, starbright!

 



3. I am in love with the goddess who… lives down the street
I’ve got clouds on my agenda and a spring in my feet
and I wonder what she knows, if she knows!
I could always buy her coffee, but she’d see straight through the ploy.

     C                               G   (tacit)
I’d love to walk beside her in the place of all those boys…

       A7  (tacit)         C        G
and I wonder if she knows, if she knows.
