Riley
Is looking
Like a ghost in the window
It's  cracked  down  the  pane
Like  spid - ers  legs
A  ri - ver's  veins
In  I - da - ho

We're moving
Out of Aberdeen yeah-ah
To some avenue in Coeur d'Alene
Where  grandpa  is  from
It  will  be  fun
If  every  one
Would not   complain

G-A*      			*(just a quick strum of G then A and hold)
I think I'll go join the army
G
Maybe I'll buy a monkey
G-A 
Or take up smoking
G
Cause I don't want to leave
G-A 
I'll marry you for the money
G
Don't take it personally
G-A 
Loving someone like you
G
Is normal   for me

A          G
Riley, my Riley
A
Naive
       G
Aren't you baby
A        G
Riley, my Riley
A
You scream
G
'You're not normal'

It's evening
It's perfect
So bloody boring to me
So much I've gone numb
To stir it up
I wish aliens
Would abduct    somebody

I think I'll go join the army
Maybe I'll buy a monkey
Or take up smoking baby
One of these days
I'll paint the house purple
Not daunted by other people
You're dull if you follow rules
And whatever they say

Riley, my Riley
Naive
Aren't you baby
Riley, my Riley
You scream
'You're not normal'

Bm/A
Middle of your dreams and you are
Fm7/E
Tired of me already
Bm/A
I know you're just asleep
       Fm7/E
But it's hard to listen frankly
Bm/A
You keep screaming
'I'm not with you
A/E
I'm not with you
I'm not with ya,'
Bm/A
You keep screaming
'You're not normal
D
You're not normal!'

I think I'll go join the army
Maybe I'll buy a monkey
Or take up smoking baby
One of these days
Maybe the ending's happy
Maybe I'll marry Riley
Maybe you doubt that
I'm normal   enough

Riley, my Riley
Naive
Aren't you baby
Riley, my Riley
You scream
'You're not normal'
