    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
