Intro: Dm  Gm  A

Verse 1:
Dm
White shirt now red, my bloody nose, sleepin', you're on your tippy toes
Gm                                 A
Creepin' around like no one knows, think you're so criminal
Dm
Bruises on both my knees for you, don't say thank you or please, I do
Gm                               A
What I want when I'm wanting to, my soul so cynical

Chorus 1:
            Dm
So you're a tough guy, like it really rough guy

Just can't get enough guy, chest always so puffed guy
         Gm
I'm that bad type, make your mama sad type
                     A
Make your girlfriend mad tight, might seduce your dad type
-nc-
I'm the bad guy, duh
Dm          Gm      A
    I'm the bad guy

Verse 2:
-nc-
I like it when you take control, even if you know that you don't
-nc-
Own me, I'll let you play the role, I'll be your animal
Dm
My mommy likes to sing along with me, but she won't sing this song
Gm                                  A
If she reads all the lyrics, she'll pity the men I know

Chorus 2:
            Dm
So you're a tough guy, like it really rough guy

Just can't get enough guy, chest always so puffed guy
         Gm
I'm that bad type, make your mama sad type
                     A
Make your girlfriend mad tight, might seduce your dad type
-nc-
I'm the bad guy, duh
Dm          Gm      A
    I'm the bad guy,  duh
Dm                         Gm   A
    I'm only good at bein' bad, bad

Interlude:
Dm
   I like when you get mad
Dm
   I guess I'm pretty glad that you're alone
Dm
   You said she's scared of me, I mean
-nc-
I don't see what she sees but maybe it's 'cause I'm wearing your cologne

Outro:
Dm
   I'm a bad guy
Dm
   I'm a bad guy
Dm
   Bad guy, bad guy, I'm a bad

    Strumming pattern that I use: DUD UUU DUD

  2. Billie Eilish ORIGINAL

    Thanks guys for liking my song
    Dont forget to stay bad and check out my new songs
    Love ya

  3. What strumming pattern can O use for this one?

  4. I think that Dm sounds better than D.

    • No it doesn’t

    • Samantha Morales

      well, you’re wrong

    • Well not at all, it’s kind of impossible that a D minor would sound better than a D chord in that sequence. The D chord gives it a feeling tbat you’ll play another chord to finish the sequence but no you’ll just repeat while the Dm would sound like a conclusion of something but with a missing chord.

  5. Dx UDx UUUDUD strum works really well. I love her album
    its GREAT

  6. Can DDUUDUx2 can be an alternative?

  7. YeEEEEeeEEeEEeEEEeEEes
    I love this album and honestly, I’ve been waiting for the songs to come out on ukutabs and now that it’s here I’m still waiting for “all the good girls go to hell”, “my strange addiction” and “ilomilo” :)

  8. DDU-UDU-UDU-UDU

  9. the way I play it is just single down strums and after every down strum I mute the strings by placing a finger over it. in the chorus I play a plucking pattern, first pluck the first string and then pluck the 2nd, 3rd and 4th string at the same time. I also play D as: bar the 2nd fret and put your finger on the 4th string on the 5th fret. hope this makes sense haha

  10. Strumming Pattern?

  11. Where is the strum?

  12. THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! LOVE THIS SONG SO MUCH! Will you hopefully do the rest of the album? I would love to see Listen Before I Go, I Love You, and Goodbye. Much love!

  13. GreenApple

    Stunning pattern please? I’m lost.

  14. Ok so I know people are going to be asking strumming pattern so here I go
    You could always do down strums but I recommend using (DDU UDU) 4 times on the Gm part, then using the same strumming type but only doing it 2 times for both Cm and D. To wrap it up, use (DDU UDU) 4 times on Gm, 2 times on Cm, and 2 times on D

  15. crxxpy_covx

    +2

  16. sounds a lot better if you play D as 2224 instead of 2220
