Melanie - Ballerina


CAPO: 2nd Fret



INTRO:  (spoken)
    You didn't grow up to be a ballerina
    But you do a great song and dance
    G E A D G D


  G
You didn't grow up to be a ballerina
    C          G
But you do a great song and dance

Mamma used to rock you with a concertina
    A            D
To the tune of a rock 'n' roll band


     G           G7
You were such a little lady, a pretty little baby
    C                 A A7
Had the look that could undo a full grown man
  G           E7
You didn't grow up to be a ballerina
    A     D    G   D
But you do a great song and dance


  G
You never went further than that first tondu
     C          G
But your smile sure made 'em rave

I'll bet you made your mom and daddy proud of you
     A           D
When that float drove by and you waved


     G          G7
You were everybody's dream, a cutie beauty queen
C            A A7
Destined for a life of romance
  G           E7
You didn't grow up to be a ballerina
    A     D    G
But you do a great song and dance
      E7
Put on your tutu
A     D    G
Do a great song and dance
      E7
Oh yes, you do do
D          G
Do a great song and dance


INTERLUDE:
  E7     A  D  G
Oh up pup pa pa, pa, etc.
  E7     A  D  G  E7
Pup pa pa, pa, pa, etc.


    (## key change - up 2 semitones ##)

    A
Oh, you made the grades in every class at school
  D             A
It must've been your natural charm

When it was hot outside, you always could stay cool
     B            E
With that boy in your eye and the one in your arms


   A            A7
Never mind the arabesque, you do what you did best
D              B B7
Momma gonna give the girl a hand
    A           F#7
Ah, you didn't grow up to be a ballerina
    B     E    A
But you do a great song and dance
      F#7
Put on your tutu
B     E    A
Do a great song and dance
      F#7
Oh yes, you do do
B     E    A
