the fifty ways...

Fifty ways to leave your lover,

I love the song BUT, I think the chorus arrangement is a mistake. Anyone would try to re arrange the song  for the chorus to sound like the verses? Not a specialist so I hope it makes sense...

Not sure what you’re saying.. you want to erase the step off the back Jack part completely and do something else ?

Em                 D              Cmaj7               B7
   "The problem is all inside your head", she said to me,
Em7                D         Cmaj7        Ebdim
   The answer is easy if you take it logically.
Em7             D                Cmaj7          B7   
   I'd like to help you in your struggle to be free.
                 Em       Am7                Em       Em
   There must be - fifty ways to leave your lover."

Em                  D            Cmaj7        B7   
   She said: "It's really not my habit to intrude,
            Em            D              Cmaj7            Ebdim
   Furthermore I hope my meaning won't be lost or miss-construed,
             Em           D        Cmaj7          B7 
   But I'll repeat myself, at the risk of being crude.
                 Em       Am7                Em        Em
   There must be - fifty ways to leave your lover,
Em        Am7                Em
   Fifty ways to leave your lover."


[Chorus]

                   G                     Bb
Just slip out the back Jack, make a new plan Stan,
              C7                          G
No need to be coy Roy, just get yourself free
            G                             Bb
Hop on the bus Gus, you don't need to discuss much,
                  C7                         G
Just drop off the key Lee, and get yourself free.

               G                    Bb
Slip out the back Jack, make a new plan Stan,
                     C7                          G
You don't need to be coy Roy, you just listen to me.
            G                            Bb
Hop on the bus Gus, you don't need to discuss much,
                  C7                          G
Just drop off the key Lee, and get yourself free.


[Verse]

Em                 D             Cmaj7             B7 
   She said: "It grieves me so to see you in such pain.
                  Em                  D           Cmaj7    Ebdim
   I wish there was something I could do to make you smile again."
                 Em          D               Cmaj7      B7
   I said: "I appreciate that and would you please explain
             Em      Am7     Em
   About the - fifty ways."

Em                 D                  Cmaj7          B7 
   She said: "Why don't we both just sleep on it tonight,
            Em                D             Cmaj7            Ebdim
   And I believe that in the morning you'll begin to see the light."
             Em              D             Cmaj7        B7
   Then she kissed me and I realised, she probably was right,
                Em      Am7                Em
   There must be fifty ways to leave your lover,
Em        Am7                Em
   Fifty ways to leave your lover.


[Chorus]

                   G                     Bb
Just slip out the back Jack, make a new plan Stan,
                     C7                          G
You don't need to be coy Roy, and get yourself free.
            G                             Bb
Hop on the bus Gus, you don't need to discuss much.
                  C7                          G
Just drop off the key Lee, and set yourself free.

                   G                     Bb
Just slip out the back Jack, make a new plan Stan,
              C7                      G
No need to be coy Roy, just listen to me.
            G                         Bb
Hop on the bus Gus, don't need to discuss much,
                  C7                          G
Just drop off the key Lee, and set yourself free.

I want to have the chorus with the same chords and tempo than the verses.
