NOTES:
This is really a piano song, as were many on this album, but this is such a

VERSE
Gm             C        F             Bb
  In Sears and Roebuck,   in Nineteen Fifty-Seven,
Gm      C          F                    Bb
  In my last life, all good girls would go to Heaven
Gm           C            F            Bb
  But I've a strangeness,   a queer propensity
    Gm           C             F
For twisting the knife too easily

PRE-CHORUS
       Dm                Bb          C            F
When I think I'm getting better, I'm just getting worse
       Dm                Bb            F        C     C7
When I think I've got it made, I get impossibly cursed

CHORUS
         G        F             C  C7
When did I become such a bitch?
              G        F               C  C7
And how did I let this happen? I don't know
         G        F
When did I become such a bitch?
  Bb            F
I used to be so nice

VERSE
It's like a sickness, I'm powerless to stop it
My boring life, my little heart made misanthropic
Don't give me reasons, just give me therapy
But, really, just give me what I want

PRE-CHORUS
When I think I'm getting better, I'm evil again
When I think I've got it fixed, I have familiar refrains

CHORUS
When did I become such a bitch?
And how did I let this happen? I don't know
When did I become such a bitch?
I used to be so nice
        Bb           C
Well, I used to be alright

BRIDGE
    Dm             C            F                  Dm
But I-I-I-I-I hate everyone and everything all the time
    C                       E   [N.C.]
And being so cruel - 'cause all the pleasure that I get
                                   E    [N.C.]
My wicked tongue helps me forget myself and all my foolish ways
                                     Dm   C   F   Dm
'Cause being good is just so fucking boring

PRE-CHORUS
When I think I'm getting better, I'm just getting worse
When I think I've got it made, I get impossibly cursed
When I think that I'm better, I'm worse, yes, I am
When I think that I'm better, I find that I'm cursed

CHORUS
When did I become such a bitch?
And how did I let this happen? I don't know
When did I become such a bitch?
I used to be so nice, once upon a time

Oh, when did I become such a bitch?
And how did I let this happen? I don't know
When did I become such a bitch?
I used to be so nice
Well, I used to be alright
