   I'm sentimental, so I walk in the rain
Em7            A  A7-9  F#m7         B7-9
   I've got some habits even I can't explain
Em                     Gm6    F#m7        Fo   
   Could start for the corner, turn up in Spain
Em                A7        Dmaj7     Bm7
   But why try to change me now?
            
I sit and daydream, I've got daydreams galore
Cigarette ashes, there they go on the floor
I'll go away weekends, leave my keys in the door
But why try to change me now?
            
Am7            D7      Gmaj7
Why can't I be more conventional?
       Am7          C9          Gmaj7
People talk, people stare, so I try
Bm7                  E7  A               F#m7
  But that's not for me,  'cause I can't see
Bm7          E              G          A
  My kind of crazy world go passing me by
            
So, let people wonder, let 'em laugh, let 'em frown
You know I'll love you till the moon's upside down
Don't you remember I was always your clown?
Why try to change me now?
