Your inarticulate boyfriend
(on Etudes for voice and snackmaster shrimper tape)

D               C                   D
he can barely string two words together
D               C                D
he can barely state his case at all
Bm                Bsus2               Dsus2         D
but every time he asks you to come over
you're there before he gets a chance to stall
            Em                   A           F#m           B5                      Em
he doesn't beat you he doesn't treat you as cruel as the people that you dated in school
       A5                Gm     D
who am i to begrudge you happiness?

he can hardly form a compound sentence
he can barely get his point across
you hold up both ends of the conversation
and help him everytime he's at a loss
           Em                  A            F#m           B5                        Em
he doesn't hurt you he won't desert you but still you're not required to bend to his will
       A5                Gm     A           Bm
who am i to begrudge you happiness without end
D           Em    A5         D              C            D
with your inarticulate boyfriend?

why don't you take up ventriloquism
why don't you just sit him on your knee
make him say you're everything he wanted 
yeah make him pledge his love grammatically
            Em                        A            F#m           B5                    Em
you say i've cheapened a love that's deepened with time is that such an unspeakable crime
       A5                 F#m           B5            Em
who am i to begrudge you (it's not my place to judge you)
       A5                Gm     D
who am i to begrudge you happiness?
