    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.

    Bm7                                C                D7sus4           E7sus4       

    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,
