Verse 1B♭PooB♭sus4r MasteB♭r BB♭sus4ruce, poor Mr. Wayne, Lonely caboose on a one car train. B♭AndB♭sus4 it paiB♭ns B♭sus4me to watch you amble along.This track of loneliness I laid down for you. B♭I rB♭sus4emember that horrible night, the night you were split in two. And I swore I'd protect B♭youB♭sus4 (and I haven't). B♭So B♭sus4I builtB♭ a wall all around you, but the wall was too tall And it blocked out all Of the birdB♭sus4s and the sun.
ChorusI C♯triedF to raise you right, I tried to raise you proper. Bbminor B I tried to be a mentor and a friend, and a mama and a papa too. F♯And F♯minsuC♯late you from any outside source of fright. E♭ Ebminor And make bloody certain you'll never see another DC♯ark, sad, lonely night.
Verse 2As I look at my life I see something's not right Like a thousand percent. And I wonder what it is, how it is that it's always just me here Crying alone at the end of the night, ten thousand percent. Put most of the blame on Alfred. How come he couldn't take the bullet intended for mama and papa? I never had a pony. I never had pets. Just a bullshit butler, who builds bullshit jets.
ChorusOC♯h! IF7M'm falling apart, I need a friend. SB♭momebodyB to hold on to. Somebody to confide in. F♯ThinF♯mk ofC♯ the children, next time you gun down their mama and papa. BE♭ecauE♭mse tC♯hey probably don't have another mama and papa.
Verse 3I was seein' a girl for a while, a couple days anyway And I told her I loved her. She said you're such a good friend and that rash is bad You should really go see a doctor. Then she just disappeared, sent me some text about bad timing And my love being selfish. Then my doctor called up and the blood came back and as it turns out I'm allergic to peanuts and shellfish. I loved peanuts and shellfish once.
ChorusIC♯'m F7Mfalling apart, I'm lacking punch. IB♭m can bBarely eat. This morning I barely touched my brunch. F♯TwoF♯m spoC♯ons of oatmeal, a couple of nuts, and half a banana. AE♭nd E♭mlike C♯my soul, the banana was bruised and black. IC♯'m F7Mfalling apart, I need a friend. SB♭momebodBy to hold on to. Somebody to confide in. F♯SomF♯mebodyC♯ to ride in the cockpit Co-captain of the friendship ship. Or maybe just a friend ship. E♭If E♭mI haC♯d a buddy, we could discuss, Just what we call a friendship.
EndE♭I want to be somebody's buddy A♭Somebody who can be my buddy back. E♭I want to be somebody's buddy B♭Anybody but a dumbshit butler. Batman: I want to be somebody's buddy.
