DU YOU SIE Lyrics And Chords 2/2 (Colum Sands, 2009)

A humorous love song dealing with the two different ways to address to people in the German language and about the difficulties this can create for those with English as their mother tongue.

Lyrics and chords fit Colum Sands version from his album ‚Look Where I’ve Ended Up Now’ with capo on 2nd fret.

Intro: G-D-G-D   G-D-G-D

 

Now (G)do you (D)see said (G)Sue to me two (C)words for (G)you in (D)German
My (G)lovely (D)teacher (G)looked at me to make sure (D)I was (G)learning
(D)’Sie’ is formal (G)’Du’ for friends her (C)voice was sweet per(D)fection
And (G)soon I (D)knew that (G)Du and Sie would drive me (D)to dis(G)traction

 

G-G-G-G   G-D-G-G

The (G)formal (D)Sie said (G)Sue to me keeps (C)people (G)sepa(D)rated
For(G)mali(D)ty said (G)I to Sue is vastly (D)over (G)rated
To (D)start with Du takes (G)out the fun said (C)Sue of Explo(D)ration
My (G)brush with (D)Freud trans(G)lated this as deferred (D)gratifi(G)cation

For (G)I saw (D)Sue as (G)Du not Sie while (C)she to (G)me was (D)Sieing
And (G)the more I (D)saw of (G)Sue each week the more I (D)thought of (G)Duing

G-G-G-G   G-D-G-G


I'm (G)seeing (D)Sue for (G)six months now it (C)could be (G)such a (D)pleasure
If (G)only (D)she'd Du (G)unto me my joy would (D)know no (G)measure
I (D)loved not wisely (G)but too well and (C)this I could be (D)rueing
For (G)now as (D)well as (G)Sieing me she's sueing (D)me for (G)Duing

G-G-G-G   G-D-G-G


T’was (G)just a (D)jest Sue (G)didn't sue and (C)now my (G)heart's a (D)quiver
For (G)yester(D)day she (G)said to me I'll Du you (D)now for(G)ever
And (D)grammar thus is (G)leading us to (C)sweetest conju(D)gation
We're (G)doing (D)very (G)well thank you but ask not (D)for trans(G)lation

 

G-G-G-G   G-D-G-G
