    D        A/D          D          A/D         G
1. I’ve been cheat-ed by you since I don’t know when
   D    A/D         D           A/D         G
   So I made up my mind it must come to an end
     D           D+                 D  
   Look at me now__  Will I ev-er learn
                   D+                    G  
   I don’t know how__  But I sud-den-ly lose cont-rol
                       A
   There’s a fire with-in my soul
    G    D   A
   Just one look and I can hear a bell ring
    G   D    A
   One more look and I for-get ev'-ry-thing__ Oh–Oh–Oh–Oh

      D                                                   
Chorus: Mam-ma Mi-a__ Here I go a-gain
     G  C/G  G
        My   My__ How can I res-ist ya’
      D                      
        Mam-am Mi-a__ Does it show a-gain
     G  C/G  G                      
        My   My__ Just how much I missed ya’
       D              A/C#               
        Yes I’ve been brok-en heart-ed 
      Bm                 A6
        Blue__ Since the day we part-ed
      G  C   G     Em7          A

2. I’ve been ang-ry and sad a-bout things that you do
   D        A/D            D          A/D             G
   I can’t count all the times that I told you we’re through  
    D             D+                     D
   And when you go__  When you slam the door
                     D+           D          G  
   How could you know__ That you won’t be a-way too long
                      A
   You know that I’m not that strong
    G    D   A
   Just one look and I can hear a bell ring
    G   D    A
   One more look and I for-get ev-‘ry-thing__ Oh–Oh–Oh–Oh
