N.C. Em
Well here I am again
D
The pretty but naïve one
A
The perky-breasted, giggly one night stand
Em
Is it my destiny to be
D
A brief diversion
A G
Just a detour on the journey of some man?
D
I'm not really one for askin'
A
I'll play whatever role I'm cast in
D
Will smile with perfect teeth
A
And grimace underneath
Em7
I learned back in my teens
G
There's no point in protestin'
Em7
If you look good in tight jeans
A
That's what they'll want you dressed in
G
Once you're known for low-cut tops
D/F#
It's pretty hard to stop
Em7
It isn't easy to break free
Em7/A D (F# G C# D A A G F#)
Of playing Nancy
D
I don't really remember
A
I guess I chose to be here
D
I wasn't quite aware that
A
I was put here to be stared at
Em7
But this world I chose to live in
G
Is mostly run by men
Em7
So you take what you are given
A7
Just to feel the love again
G
So throughout the endless week
D/F#
And all through the weekend
Em7
You will find me here
Em7/A D (F# G C# D A A G F#)
Playing Nancy
D
And look, I know this person fits me
A
I'm pretty good at being pretty
D
And I'm grateful, I mean to say
A
There are worse roles you can play
Em7
And I'd rather be up dancing
G
Than sad against a wall
Em7
It's better to be leered at
A7
Than not desired at all
G
Who am I to dream of better
D/F# Em7
To dream that one day I will be
A7 Gmaj7
Something more than just collateral
D/F#
In someone else's battle
Em7
I will be
Em7/A D (F# G C# D A A G F#)
Something more than Nancy
