G (½)              D (½)         F (½)           C (½)          G (½)    D (½)   F (½)   C (½)

    I wash my hair and I kid myself I look real smooth.

G (½)               D (½)                  F (½)                   C (½)                 G (½)     D (½)   F (½)   C (½)

G (½)                   D (½)                         F (½)                   C (½)       G (½)    D (½)   F (½)   C (½)

dead.  'Cause I've had my fill, "Listen you, take your hands off her

Bm7                     C                        D7sus4     E7sus4       

head!"   I get so mean around this scene!        Hey, hey,
