E|-----------7-7-7-5-7-----------7-7-7--


VERSE:
G
I didn't take no shortcuts
I've spent the money that I saved up
C
Oh, mama, running out of luck
They like my sister don't give a fuck
G
I wanna steal your innocence
To me my life, it don't make sense
C
Your strange manners I love 'em so
Why won't you wear your new trench coat

D|---3--3--3--3----2--2--2--2---

VERSE 2:
G
Oh, should I work much harder
Or should I just not bother
C
I never show up on weekdays
That's something that you learned yesterday
G
Yeah, you don't work or you will be on time
These little parties they're not yours and mine
C
Come on and listen to what I say
I got some secrets that'll make you stay
Am
I just want to turn you down
I just want to turn you around
C
Oh, you ain't never had nothing I wanted
				       Am
But I want it all, I just can't figure out
nothing

BREAK: G


CHORUS:
    G
And all together it went well
    Em
We made pretend we were best friends
  G
Then she said, oh, you're a freak
     Em
They ordered me to make mistakes
G
Together again like the beginning
   Em
It all works out now in the end
      G
The things we did, the things you hide
Em
And for the record it's between you and I

SOLO (twice):
G|--2--2--2--2----4--4--4--4---- x2

C
Oh, mama, running out of luck
They like my sister don't give a fuck
G
I wanna steal your innocence
To me my life, it just don't make any sense
C
Your strange manners I love 'em so
Why won't you wear your new trench coat
Am
I just want to missa'behave
I just want to be your slave
C
Oh, you ain't never had nothing I wanted
				       Am
But I want it all, I just can't figure out
nothing

BREAK: G


CHORUS:
    G
And all together it went well
    Em
We made pretend we were best friends
  G
Then she said, oh, I can wait
     Em
They ordered me to make mistakes
G
Together again like the beginning
   Em
It all works out now in the end
      G
The things we did, the things you hide
Em
And for the record it's between you and I

Somethin' that you learned yesterday

Drive you to work, you'll be on time
Your little problems, they're not yours they're mine

C
Come on listen to what I say
I got some secrets that'll make you stay

I just want to turn you down
I just want a turn you around

I just want to be your slave
C
You ain't got nothin' I want but
I want it all, I just can't
Am
Figure out
Nothin'
