D G A Em (x4) D

      G             A      Em     D
She’s interested in me  
    G             A        Em     Bm
I’m interested in her  
    A         G#m
But there’s a distance  
     G              F
Each morning as she walks   
    C      F        C
Our eyes exchange a thought  
    F#                     E      D
Our hearts, an interest  


     G               A     Em     D
I’ve seen her at the club  
  G                A       Em     Bm
Expanding with the funk  
    A        G#m
She looks so brilliant  
    G                   F
She sticks close to her friends  
    C        F     C
And when the music ends  
    F#                     E
She is the Indian  


    E       A        E        A
I’d like to meet the Elephant Girl  
  E       A         E        A
I feel we know each other so well  
     G         Bm       A         Bb
From eyes that meet the love they seek  
Am                           
Interested to get close to you  (elephant girl)
Em                G
Interested to get close to you  (elephant girl)  

D G A Em (x2) D

    G             A        Em     D
I’m interested to meet  
    G                  A   Em     Bm
The girl that looks at me  
  A       G#m     
I will be trying  
    G             F
Her colour unlike mine  
    C        F       C
Her hair the plaited vine  
  F#                       E      D
I will be climbing  

[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/s/squeeze/elephant_girl_crd.html ]
   G             A         Em     D
My leg is always pulled  
   G                  A    Em     Bm
By friends who really would  
    A        G#m
But say they wouldn’t  
    G                 F
The joke’s against my heart  
 C       F        C
Immediately she's barred  
      F#                   E
Their hearts are wooden  


    E       A        E        A 
I’d like to meet the elephant girl
  E       A         E        A
I feel we know each other so well
     D         Bm       G         Bb
From eyes that meet the love they seek
Am    
Interested to get close to you (elephant girl)
Em                G                       
Interested to get close to you (elephant girl)

    G             A        Em     D
I’m interested in her  
      G             A      Em     Bm  
She’s interested in me  
    A        G#m
Her distance shortens  
    G                 F
She walks towards the light  
  C      F         C
I walk towards the lines  
     F#                    E      D
That seem important  


    G              A       Em     D 
I’m counting up to ten  
   G                A      Em     Bm
By five she's gone again  
  A      G#m
Into the distance  
     G            F
I'll try again to nudge my   
C       F       C
Courage for the love 
    F#                     E
Without resistance  


    E       A        E        A
I’d like to meet the elephant girl
  E       A         E        A
I feel we know each other so well
     D         Bm       G         Bb
From eyes that meet the love they seek

Interested to get close to you (elephant girl)

Interested to get close to you (elephant girl)
