(F)She came in desperation and without hesitation (G)said:

[Lady:]
I want a di(C)vorce!

Verse two:
[Lady:]
He's always late for dinner, he's not getting any an thinner.
(Dm)He never folds his clothes, in public picks his nose.
(Em)I just can't take his humming, he cannot fix the plumbing,
(F)No words about my cooking or how good I am looking -
(G)Judge! I just want some:

Chorus:
[Sung by Lady:]
(C)Appreciation, (Dm)communication, (F)tender affection,
(G)Something to remind me of the days when we were so in love!
(C)Appreciation, (Dm)communication, (F)tender affection,

Verse three:
[Judge:]
(C)Before you come to choose, think of all you stand to lose,

(Em)His eyes still have that twinkle, he doesn't count your wrinkles,
(F)He's never drunk or violent, and when you shout he's silent,
(G)Do you really want to (C)part?

Verse four:
[Judge:]
Go home for 30 days and count his loving ways,
(Dm)If your love for him is buried, you wish you'd never married,
(Em)If you still have regrets, can't forgive and forget,
(F)You find that nothing works, I'll grant you your divorce -
But (G)first, try a little:

Bridge:
[Judge:]
I'd like to (Dm)mention here the lady never (G)came back,
But she (C)wrote me in a letter just to(A)day:

[Lady:]
Thanks for (Dm)all your good advice, it (Em)helped me see the light,
And (F)there's been such a change at home since (G)I (F)tried (G)some:

Chorus:
[Sung by Lady:]
(C)Appreciation, (Dm)communication, (F)tender affection,
Now (G)everything reminds me of the days when we were so in love.
