Antonio Carlos Jobim

D
            E7/Ab   /E /F#  G 
why are you here?
          /B A     
couldn't you tell him?
          Bm         E7    /E /F#  G 
were you afraid he'd hear?
                     A               D
you should have been thankful to be alone
                  E7/Ab   /E /F#  G
you took off your shoes
              A                Bm  E7   /E /F#  G 
said anything further would be bad news
                  A               D
cos you'd already started to disappear

E7/Ab /E /F# G /B A Bm E7 /E /F# G /B A D

                   E7/Ab  /E /F# G
and he couldn't complain
                   A                 Bm      E7    /E /F# G
just looked at yourlyric and crossed over to play
         /B A                  D
a record of quiet instrumentals
                    E7/Ab /E /F# G 
and i like what you wrote
       /B A              Bm   E7    /E /F# G 
this is a record full of sour notes
           /B A                        
you should've been thankful to be alone

D A Ab /E /F# G B (X3)
         oooh oooh

D A Ab /E /F# G A 

D E7/Ab /E /F# G /B A Bm E7 /E /F# G /B A 

D                   E7/Ab /E /F# G
and i like what you wrote 
                  A                Bm7       E7 /E /F# G  
but don't say you mean it when you know you don't
                     A              Bm7        E7 /E /F# G  
you should have been thankful to be alone, you know
                     A              Bm7        E7 /E /F# G  
you should have been thankful to be alone, you know
                     A              Bm7        E7 /E /F# G  A  D
you should have been thankful to be alone
