Alvvays - Lollipop (Ode to Jim): chords

F                                                             C
Saw Jim Reid in the corridor and I wondered if he could ever see me that way
   F                                                                           C
He was on my list at the grocery store when you grabbed my wrist and said you liked my keychain
F                                                                C
Read your feature in the weekly paper and honestly I found it a little bit bloated
F                                            A#                               C
Friday we fell through the coffee table and that’s when I discovered that my heart exploded

A#  C
How
A#  C
How

Chorus:
          F                A#                  C
You’re a lollipop, in the form of a lightning bolt
          F                A# C
You’re a lollipop in my hair
           F            A#                   C
But I’m a gumdrop, am I ever gonna fit that mould?
           F                                          A#     C
Because I don’t have the patience to wait in line for you, ooh

When I came back to apologize
You asked me if I was intrigued by LSD
I sat next to you on the picnic bench
And before I knew it, you were flying next to me
I met your baby at the exposition
And frankly, I found it a little unnerving
I let you know when we were driving home
And all I can remember is the fact that we're swerving

Chorus:
You’re a lollipop
In the form of a lightning bolt
You’re a lollipop in my hair
How could I ever obtain you?
But you’re a doorstop
When you’re lying on the bathroom floor
And I don’t have the time to wait in line for you
How could I ever betray you?

A#         F                        A#            C
Alter my state to get through this date (and it swallows me whole)
          A#                        F
Alter my state to get through this date (You're alone in this picture)
A#          C
 Alter my state to get through this date
A#        F                    A#         C       F
(you're alone in this picture) Alter my state to get through this date
A#        F                    A#         B       C
(You're alone in this picture) Alter my state to get through this date

Chorus:
You’re a lollipop
How could I ever obtain you?
In the form of a lightning bolt
You’re a lollipop in my hair
How could I ever betray you?
You look like Iggy Pop
Circa ’73 or ‘4
How could I ever obtain you?
Because I don’t have the time wait in line for you
How could I ever betray you?
Wait for you
