TITLE: I've Got a Brand New Pair of Roller Skates (You've Got a Brand New Key)
Lyrics and Chords


I rode my bicycle past your window last night 
I roller skated to your door at daylight
It almost seems like you're avoiding me
I'm OK alone but you've got something I need, well

/ C - - - / G7 - - - / C - - - / F - G7 - /

{Refrain}
I've got a brand new pair of roller skates 
You've got a brand new key
I think that we should get together and
Try them on to see
I been lookin' around awhile
You got something for me
Oh, I got a brand new pair of roller skates
You got a brand new key

/ C - / / / / F - / F FG7 / C - / /

I ride my bike, I roller skate, don't drive no car
Don't go too fast, but I go pretty far
For somebody who don't drive, I been all around the world
Some people say I done all right for a girl

I asked your mother if you were at home
She said yes, but you weren't alone
Oh, sometimes I think that you're avoiding me 
I'm OK alone but you got something I need, well

{Refrain}
