Graham Parker Crying for attention Lyrics

Last updated:

Intro F#m    E    A  (3 times then D)

(D) A E A
Can you hear me?
D A E A D
Baby can you hear me?
A E A
Who do you think I'm talking to?
D A E A D
Is there anyone else near me?
F#m
Precious things come in my path
Like new clothes for me to try on
In the end they make me laugh
E
In the beginning they are something to rely on

CHORUS
A E D
I'm not crying for attention Baby
A E D
I'm not crying for attention Baby
A E D E
I'm not crying for attention I'm screaming to be heard
D A E A D
Everybody's listening but you

(D) A E A
What's the matter?
D A E A D
Well there is no need to flatter
A E A
How do I get you to take notice?
D A E A D
Do I have to break and shatter?
F#mm
When I feel that I am driven
Over the edge where it's all hidden
I hang my head and hit a table or a chair
E
I know my place I just can't stay there

CHORUS

BRIDGE

Dm A Dm A
It's your loving example I need to receive
Dm A E
I need more than a handful Give it to me

A A D A E A D
Hey sometimes everybody has to be the centre of attraction
A E A D A E A D
But I I I I never expect any satisfaction
A D A D A D
And I'm not crying I'm not crying I'm not crying
E
Not crying for attention

CHORUS
I'm not crying for attention
Baby I'm not crying for attention
Don't even say I am I'm not crying

REPEATS AND FADES with A E D over "crying"
