Am  G             Am         G
Someday I'm gonna smack your face
Am  G             Am         G
Someday I'm gonna smack your face
Am  G            Am          G
Somebody's gonna call your bluff
Am  G            Am          G
Somebody's gonna treat your rough
C                                           E

Sometimes only one way, I gotta fight!

Beat you honey, 'til you drop

D                    Am
You're way past your station
C                          G
It's useless asking you to stop
      D            Am
I got morbid fascination
C                       E
Beat you honey 'til you drop


Am D (x8)

Am  G                  Am         G
Sometimes you're gonna get some stick
Am  G                  Am         G
Sometimes you're gonna get some stick
Am  G               Am     G
Somebody's standing in our way
Am  G            Am       G
Somebody's gonna have to pay
C                                       E
Sometimes there's only one way, I gotta fight


Am D (x21) E5 D5 C5 B5
end on Am.
