Does anyone know the song: Just because you think you're so pretty, just because you think you're so hot, etc. Would love to have the lyrics and guitar chords.   Thank you so much.

JUST BECAUSE
(Bob & Joe Shelton, Sid Robin)

Well, well, well,
Just because you think you're so pretty,
And just because your momma thinks you're hot,
Well, just because you think you've got something
That no other girl has got,
You've caused me to spend all my money.
You laughed and called me old Santa Claus.
Well, I'm telling you,
Baby, I'm through with you.
Because, well well, just because.

Well, well, well,
There'll come a time when you'll be lonesome
And there'll come a time when you'll be blue.
Well, there'll come a time when old Santa
He won't pay your bills for you.

You've caused me to lose all my women
And now, now you say we are through.
Well, I'm telling you
Baby, I was through with you
A long long time ago.

Well, just because you think you're so pretty
And just because your mama thinks you're the hottest thing in
town
Well, just because you think you've got something
That nobody else has got,
You've caused me to spend all of my money.
Honey, you laughed and called me your old Santa Claus.
Well, I'm telling you I'm through with you
Because, well well, just because.

The Guitar Guy has chords, but I've heard some people criticize his arrangements. How many folk musicians know how to play a D9 chord?

Before I heard this song, I was exposed to a version of it for square dancing. The verses are replaced by sung/spoken dance calls, and everyone (including all the dancers) are supposed to come in on "Because Just Because".

Jorma Kokanon does a fine job of this tune with, if I remember correctly, Bela Fleck on banjo.

Jim Dixon - a D9 chord can be played 5X4555X or X545555 or even X00210. As long as it has a D,F#,A,C & E it's some inversion of D9. It can also be called an Am7.
