Close But No Cigar chords Guitar Chords Weird Al

C F
Jillian was her name
C F
She was sweeter than aspartame
Her kisses reconfigured my DNA
And after that I never was the same
And I loved her even more than
Marlon Brando loved soufflé
She was gorgeous, she was charming,
Yeah, she was perfect in every way
Except she was always using the word “infer”
When she obviously meant “imply”
G
And I know some guys would put up with that kinda thing
F
But frankly, I can’t imagine why

C
And I told her, I said, “Hey!
F
Are we playing horseshoes honey?
Gm F
No I don’t think we are,
C F
You’re close (close!)
C
But no cigar!”

Then I met sweet young Janet
Prettiest thing on the planet
Had a body hotter than a habañero
She had lips like a ripe pomegranate
And I was crazy like Manson about her
She got me all choked up like Mama Cass
She had a smile so incredibly radiant
You had to watch it through a piece of smoked glass
I thought: after all these years of searching around
I’ve found my soulmate finally
But one day I found out she actually owned a copy
Of _Joe Dirt_ on DVD, oh no

I said, “Hey! Are we lobbin’ hand grenades, kiddo?
No I don’t think we are
You’re close (close!)
Oh, so very close (close!)
Yeah baby, you’re close (close!)
So close, but no cigar!”
