Standard guitar tuning:EADGBENo capo
Versethis is played in both verses) DmThese are the results of a thousand electric volts GmA neck with bolts, "Nurse we're losin him, check the pulse!" DmA kid who refused to respect adults GmWore spectacles with taped frames and a freckled nose DmA corny lookin white boy, scrawny and always ornery GmCause I was always sick of brawny bullies pickin on me DmAnd I might snap, one day just like that GmI decided to strike back and flatten every tire on the bike rack Dm(Whosssssh) My first day in junior high, this kid said, Gm"It's you and I, three o'clock sharp this afternoon you die" DmI looked at my watch it was one twenty Gm"I already gave you my lunch money what more do you want from me?!?" DmHe said, "Don't try to run from me, you'll just make it worse..." GmMy palms were sweaty, and I started to shake at first DmSomething told me, "Try to fake a stomach ache it works" GmI screamed, "Owww! My appendix feels like they could burst! DmTeacher, teacher, quick I need a naked nurse!" Gm[N] "What's the matter?"
DmE "I don't know, my leg, it hurts!" Gm[N] "Leg?!? I thought you said it was your tummy?!?"
DmE "Oh, I mean it is, but I also got a bum knee!" Gm[N] "Mr. Mathers, the fun and games are over. DmAnd just for that stunt, you're gonna get some extra homework."
GmE "But don't you wanna give me after school detention?" Dm[N] "Nah, that bully wants to beat your ass and I'ma let him."
ChorusDmBrain damage, Cever since the day I was born BmDrugs is what Athey used to say I was on GThey say I nevFer knew which way I was goin EBut everywhereA I go they keep playin my song
