Lyrics:

OPTIONS (Elliott C. Michaels)

Moderately slow power-pop in key of D

D Bm F#m G A
It's no secret I've been eyeing your lady for quite some time,

D Bm F#m G A
But it seems these days she's got nothing but you on her lovin' mind.

Em F#m
Well, as long as you're good to her I won't interfere,

G G A
But if you don't treat her right, let me make myself clear,

Bm Em
She's got Options ... yes, it's time that you see,

Bm Em
She's got Options ... I think her best one is me,

G F#m
She's got Options ... and I'm tellin' you true,

Em A
Don't ruin the best thing ever happened to you.

D
She's got a will of her own,

Bm F#m G A
She's strong enough to be flexible and not overbearing.

D
She's got the heart of a saint,

Bm F#m G A
For she can handle your worst and still be loving and caring.

Em F#m
Yet you keep her at arm's length but cling so tight,

G G A
Buddy, doin' that to this one just isn't right.

Bm Em
She's got Options ... yes, it's time you took heed,

Bm Em
She's got Options ... you'd better follow my lead,

G F#m
She's got Options ... man, you're losin' your grip,

Em A
You oughta take my advice or else you're sure gonna slip.

F#m
Now, I don't have your money or your dashing good looks,

Bm
And I don't drive a fancy car,

F#m
But I know how to satisfy a first-class woman,

Bm
And that's more important by far!

F#m
I know you and your lady perceive me as crazy,

Bm
And she barely knows I'm alive.

Em
But you heard it right here, you'd better treat the girl dearly,

G A
Or your love ain't gonna survive!

Bm Em Bm Em
She's got Options! ... Oh, yeah!

G F#m Em A

D Bm
Now, when a girl comes along like the one you're with,

F#m G A
Why would you take her for granted?

D Bm
A lady like that could make you happy for life,

F#m G A
How come you don't understand it?

Em F#m
I can't stand by idly while you treat her this way,

G G A
For she deserves so much more and I've got something to say.

Bm Em
She's got Options ... yes, it's time that you knew,

Bm Em
She's got Options ... and yours are just about through!

G F#m
She's got Options ... I'm movin' in for the kill,

Em A
And I'm gonna prove that I love her for real.

Bm Em
She's got Options ... and now she's opened her eyes,

Bm Em
She's got Options ... she's gonna exercise!

G F#m
She's got Options ... it's time to make up your mind,

Em A
For she's about to come with me and leave you behind.

Bm Em Bm Em
She's got Options ... Options ... Options ... hear what I say,

Bm Em Bm Em (hold for coda)
She's got Options ... Options ... Optio-o-o-o-ons!
