Now let me make this perfectly clear (feedback)

Once upon a time,
D                   A               E
Life was sweet and  everything was  fine,
                                    D
Each day was like a triumph of the  will,
                                     A
And every night was even better still,
A
Now suddenly,
D               A            E
You don't wanna do it anymore,
                                     D
Nothing I could say would change your mind,
                                          A
I watched you walk away, scream and whine,
D      E       F#
It was worth a try,
         E         D
Though I can't  deny,
       E         F#------E
It's a weak  reply
           D                       E
But theres never gonna be another  other way to say good-bye
A-E-D (x3)
second verse, same thing
Once I had a dog,
A little puppy dog he was my friend,
I almost lost him when he ran away,
kinda like whats happening today,
Lets face it kid,
You never were that kind of friend at all,
You were never there to catch me when I faltered,
I needed to be laundered pressed and altered,
But still it seems to me,
We should wait and see, 
But you don't agree,
And if thats the way you want it I know thats the way its gonna be.

ending:
               D              E
And now theres only one thing left to say
    F#       E    D
and its been said before,
              A         D        E
You wont have nixon, to kick  around anymore.
