Intro:  / G#5 - - - / E5 - - - / B5 - - - / F#5 - - - / x2

 

    G#5                               E5            B5      F#5

I couldn't catch a ride, I tried so I was walkin'

               G#5                                E5                     B5                 F#5

Started rainin’ when you called to tell me you were flakin’ out again

  G#5                          E5                   B5   F#5

I only had a buck, not enough to get a latte

      G#5                    E5          B5                            F#5

So I sat down at a table and I thought about you instead

      C#5 (2)                                                     E5 (high voicing) (2, hold second measure)

I'd have to be a fool to believe every word you said

 

Chorus:

G#5                        E5                     B5                              F#5  

    And I don't wanna be your dummy    I cut the strings and I'm free, honey

G#5                          E5                      B5                F#5

      I don't want your fast life or your money or your time

G#5                        E5                B5                             F#5

     So stuck on yourself it’s funny       Hanging with you feels so crummy

C#5 (2)                                               E5 (high voicing) (2)

      So I don't wanna be your dummy      Da dummy da dummy

 

 G#5                                     E5                  B5      F#5

Walkin’ through the mall with all the carbon copies

                       G#5                              E5                             B5                         F#5

You’re showing off screaming on your cell phone, I wonder why    I didn't see it then

                  G#5                                E5                          B5      F#5

You spend hours and hours trying to make your hair look sloppy

                 G#5                              E5                              B5                           F#5

You spend hundreds of dollars on a tee-shirt that you wear    for the week its "in"

C#5 (2)                                                          E5 (high voicing) (2, hold second measure)

Now that were apart I wonder if you miss a thing

 

Chorus

 

G#5                            D#5                            B5                         F#5  

      And if you’re asking       then the last thing     I wanna be is a puppet on a string

C#5 (4)

      You're unbelievable--it’s inconceivable    If you think I'll let you make a fool of me

 

/ G#5 - - - / E5 - - - / B5 - - - / F#5 - - - / x2

 

Chorus 2:

G#5                         E5                  B5                               F#5  

    And I don't wanna be your dummy    I cut the strings and I'm free, honey

G#5                          E5                      B5                   F#5

      I don't want your fast life or your money or your time

G#5                        E5                B5                             F#5

     So stuck on yourself it’s funny       Hanging with you feels so crummy

C#5 (2)                                              E5 (high voicing) (4)

      So I don't wanna be your dummy      This dummy’s no dummy

 

End on G#5
