Intro: GG chord CC chord GG chord DD chord GG chord CC chord GG chord DD chord

Verse:
GG chord           CC chord         GG chord           DD chord
Working all day for a mean little man
       GG chord       CC chord         GG chord      DD chord
With a clip-on tie and a rub-on tan
            EmEm chord                 CC chord             DD chord            GG chord
He's got me running 'round the office like a dog around a track
    EmEm chord              CC chord                   DD chord               GG chord
But when I get back home, you're always there to rub my back

Chorus:
GG chord   CC chord
Hey Julie,
DD chord                 CC chord
Look what they're doing to me
EmEm chord                CC chord
Trying to trip me up
          DD chord       GG chord
Trying to wear me down
GG chord        CC chord           DD chord          CC chord
Julie, I swear, it's so hard to bear it

Post-Chorus:
        EmEm chord            CC chord           DD chord       GG chord
And I'd never make it through without you around
        EmEm chord            CC chord           DD chord       GG chord
No I'd never make it through without you around

Verse:
GG chord            CC chord            GG chord         DD chord
Hours on the phone making pointless calls
        GG chord            CC chord                 GG chord          DD chord
I got a desk full of papers that means nothing at all
    EmEm chord              CC chord    DD chord            GG chord
Sometimes I catch myself staring into space
EmEm chord                CC chord            EE chord          GG chord
Counting down the hours 'til I get to see your face

Chorus:
GG chord   CC chord
Hey Julie,
DD chord                 CC chord
Look what they're doing to me
EmEm chord                CC chord
Trying to trip me up
          DD chord       GG chord
Trying to wear me down
GG chord        CC chord              DD chord       CC chord
Julie, I swear, it's so hard to bear it

Post-Chorus:
        EmEm chord            CC chord            DD chord        GG chord
And I'd never make it through with out you around
        EmEm chord            CC chord            DD chord        GG chord
No, I'd never make it through with out you around

Bridge:
EmEm chord                 BmBm chord
How did it come to be
                    CC chord
That you and I must be
                   DD chord
Far away from each other every day?
EmEm chord                  BmBm chord
Why must I spend my time
              CC chord
Filling up my mind
                            DD chord
With facts and figures that never add up anyway?
     CC chord
They never add up anyway
GG chord           CC chord         GG chord           DD chord
Working all day for a mean little guy
       GG chord      CC chord         GG chord            DD chord
With a bad toupee and a soup-stained tie
            EmEm chord                 CC chord
He's got me running 'round the office
       DD chord           GG chord
Like a gerbil on a wheel
       EmEm chord              CC chord
He can tell me what to do
             DD chord               GG chord
But he can't tell me what to feel

Chorus:
GG chord   CC chord
Hey Julie,
DD chord                 CC chord
Look what they're doing to me
EmEm chord                CC chord
Trying to trip me up
          DD chord       GG chord
Trying to wear me down
GG chord        CC chord           DD chord          CC chord
Julie, I swear, it's so hard to bear it

Outro:
        EmEm chord            CC chord           DD chord       GG chord
And I'd never make it through without you around
        EmEm chord            CC chord           DD chord       GG chord
No I'd never make it through without you around
        EmEm chord            CC chord           DD chord       GG chord
No I'd never make it through without you around
