F C She was a waitress, F C with hair blonde and curly, F C with a pretty black dress, G C and those japanese shoes. (Chorus): G Man I need to impress her, F C 'cause I'd like to undress her. F C I need a song about Sonya G C when I'm singin' tonight. Well she looked so pretty as she poured my coffee, but she had her eye on my friend at the bar. And I watched her watch him, and I watched her thinkin'. F G I wished her eye C was on me. (Chorus) And if I could sing her a tender love ballad, I'd hope the audience might sing along. But I can't find the right way to tell her my feelings, and still make the words rhyme with Sonya. I never been lucky at pickin up women This life that I live is not one that I choose. She was a waitress. Now she's gone forever, and I'm stuck with this song that I never will use. Man you need to impress her if you want to undress her.
