[Verse 1] C F G7 C I hate to talk about myself but here's one time I must G7 C Your confidence I'll trust, I have to speak or bust F G7 C It's funny how I get the girls, I never try at all G D7 G7 I seem to hypnotize them, I'm bound to make them fall [Chorus 1] C G7 They Go Wild Simply Wild Over Me C They go mad, just as mad as they can be F C No matter where I'm at, all the ladies thin or fat G D7 G7 The tall ones, the small ones, I grab them off like that C G7 Every night how they fight over me C It don't know what it is that they can see Dm The ladies look at me a sigh, in my arms they want to die C G7 C They Go Wild Simply Wild Over Me [Chorus 2] They Go Wild Simply Wild Over Me They go mad, just as mad as they can be No matter where I'm at, all the ladies thin or fat The tall ones, the small ones, I grab them off like that Every night how they fight over me It don't know what it is that they can see Once I kissed a girl named Nell, now she's in a padded cell She went Wild Simply Wild Over Me [Verse 2] I get so many pretty girls I give a few away they bother me each day, they're leading me astray There's lots of fellows go with girls and never get their drift I always get the women, its just a natural gift [Chorus 3] They Go Wild Simply Wild Over Me They go mad, just as foolish as they can be I meet so many kind I have to leave a few behind They love me, they kiss me, I guess they must be blind Every Night how they fight over me They all fall for my personality An old maid kissed my hand last night, I know if she had teeth she'd bite They Go Wild Simply Wild Over Me
