Intro -x2-: E B Dbm A

Verse:
E                  B
She's a good girl, she's daddy's favourite,
Dbm                       A
Save for Harvard and she knows she'll make it.
E                      B
She's good in school, she's never truant, 
Dbm                    A
She can speak French, and I think she's fluent.
E                        B
Every night she studies hard in her room,
Dbm                      A
At least that's what her parents assume.
    E                        B
She sneaks out her window to be with her boyfriend,
Dbm                         A
Here's what she told me the time that I caught them.

Chorus:
E                   B
She said to me, forget what you thought,
       Dbm                          A
Cause good girls are bad girls that haven't been caught.
    E                      B
So just turn around and forget what you saw,
Dbm                           A
Good girls are bad girls that haven't been caught.
E      B  Dbm       A
Do do do, do  do do do
E              B             Dbm            A
Good girls are bad girls are good girls are bad girls
E      B  Dbm       A
Do do do, do  do do do
E              B              Dbm          A
Good girls are bad girls that haven't been caught

Verse:
E                  B
She's a good girl, straight A student,
Dbm             A
She's well into, her self-employment.
E                        B
I swear she lives in the library,
Dbm                         A
Cause if you ask her she'll say, that's where you'll find me.
E                                B
But if you're looking you won't find her there,
Dbm                          A
She may know better but she just likes to swear.
        E                     B
In the back of her room where nobody looks,
       Dbm                    A
She'll be with her boyfriend, she's not reading books.

Chorus:
E                   B
She said to me, forget what you thought,
       Dbm                          A
Cause good girls are bad girls that haven't been caught.
    E                      B
So just turn around and forget what you saw,
Dbm                           A
Good girls are bad girls that haven't been caught.
E      B  Dbm       A
Do do do, do  do do do
E              B             Dbm            A
Good girls are bad girls are good girls are bad girls
E      B  Dbm       A
Do do do, do  do do do
E              B              Dbm          A
Good girls are bad girls that haven't been caught

Bridge: 
E       B          Dbm    A
She's a good girl, hasn't been caught x2

Interlude: E B Dbm A

Chorus:
E                   B
She said to me, forget what you thought,
       Dbm                          A
Cause good girls are bad girls that haven't been caught.
    E                      B
So just turn around and forget what you saw,
Dbm                           A
Good girls are bad girls that haven't been caught.
E      B  Dbm       A
Do do do, do  do do do
E              B             Dbm            A
Good girls are bad girls are good girls are bad girls
E      B  Dbm       A
Do do do, do  do do do
E              B              Dbm          A
Good girls are bad girls that haven't been caught

  1. ChocolateMilkParty

    all the lyrics are wrong and it bothers me lolol

  2. The title and album are both correct. The song was written in 2012 and the full title was “Good Girls Are Bad Girls” and it was put on their Somewhere New EP before self-titled was even announced. The bad things are, the lyrics are incorrect and the chords are for the updated live version, not the original. :)

  3. Hi! The song title is actually “Good Girls” and it is on the album “5 Seconds of Summer”. There are also some lyric issues Just thought I should let you know!

  4. DanHowellIsALlama

    I’m a little too mad because he or she put the wrong album and title… :(

  5. yourawizardcalum

    It’s actually “She’s really into all that self improvement,” not employment :)

  6. -4 makes even easier chords and they sound really good aswell!

  7. +3 makes easier chords

  8. For the last Twoish years it’s been called the full name and these chords are for the original live version not the new studio version

  9. breannecurrie

    @LazyLlamas they put the chords on way before they even announced the album (way before the SLSP EP too) and then they called the name Good Girls Are Bad Girls.

  10. LazyLlamas

    okay, so you made the title wrong (It’s just called “Good Girls”) And you’ve put it on the wrong album. It’s on the album that hasn’t been released yet. :)
