Verse 1:
Eb               Ebmaj7
  Wait a minute,     let me finish
        Ab                          Bb
I know you don't care, but can you listen?
Eb                  Ebmaj7
  I came committed,     guess I overdid it
         Ab                              Bb                  -nc-
Wore my heart out on a chain, around my neck, but now it's missin', hmm

Chorus:
Eb                    Ebmaj7
 -Da-da da-da da-da- hmm
                   Ab       Bb
-Da-da da-da da-da umm- oh,  hmm-hmm hmm-hmm

Chorus 1:
    Eb                  Ebmaj7
So I think I better go,     I never really know
        Ab                                     Bb
How to please you, you're lookin' at me like I'm see-through
Eb                      Ebmaj7
  I guess I'm gonna go,     I just never know
        Ab                 Bb
How you feel, do you even feel anything?

Chorus:
Eb                   Ebmaj7
  Da-da da-da da-da dumm
                  Ab         Bb
Da-da da-da da-da dumm, hmm-hmm hmm-hmm

Verse 2:
Eb                                  Ebmaj7
  You said, "don't treat me badly",     but you said it so sadly
     Ab                                           Bb
So I did the best I could not thinkin' you would   have left me gladly
Eb                         Ebmaj7
  I know you're not sorry,     why should you be?
              Ab                           Bb            -nc-
'Cause who am I to be in love, when your love never is for me, me

Chorus:
Eb                   Ebmaj7
  Da-da da-da da-da dumm
                  Ab         Bb
Da-da da-da da-da dumm, hmm-hmm hmm-hmmm


Chorus 2:
    Eb                  Ebmaj7
So I think I better go,     I never really know
        Ab                                     Bb
How to please you, you're lookin' at me like I'm see-through
Eb                      Ebmaj7
  I guess I'm gonna go,     I just never know
        Ab                 Bb    -nc-

    I like to use C, Cm7, F and then G with the capo on the third fret. The strum I use is D-U beat. It just sounds more like the song

  2. Valentina:-))

    Actually instead of Ebmaj7, I play Cm. Just goes together easily for me!!(especially because I also use this website for piano.) Hope this helped someone!:-)

  3. this doesn’t sound much like the original, plus its not good for beginners! if you want something easier to play that sounds more like the original, do c, c major 7, f, and g with the strum pattern being dd u udu twice for each chord! and remember a capo on the 3rd fret for concert ukes, or the 6th fret for soprano ukes (im not sure about tenor ukes im sorryyyy). hopefully this helps someone out :)

  4. I use the original chords but for Eb I strum that once down then I put my pinky on the 6th fret of the A string and it sounds more like the original song. I use D DU UD (DU UD is where I switch to the 6th fret) for the Eb and I use DU UD for the rest of the chords and it sounds really cool. I also lift my fingers so it blocks the strings like in the songs after I finish the D DU UD or the DU UD and it sounds a lot like the song. Hope this helps somebody :)

    I just luv how pretty much everyone has TØP name references

  6. Hellasickbillie

    For beginners a good thing to do is have a capo on ur third fret. And play c g am f which in my opinion sounds good, my strumming pattern is DUD UDU on each chord

  7. Try it with Capo on third fret with chords C, Cmaj7, Dm, G it sounds exactly like the original ;)

  8. Eyelash Eilish

    I prefer C, Cm7, Dm, G rather than Eb, Ebmaj7, Ab, Bb since C, Cm7,Dm, G in my opinion sound more like the original.

  9. Rami Malek Girl

    I used Beat-d-u-beat-d
    I think it sounds gr-8.
    Get it? The song’s called 8?
    No okay…. :(

  10. twentyoneukus

    ebmaj7 sub (it doesn’t sound right)
    play a cm
    (bar the last three strings on the third fret.

  11. the way that i found worked well with no capo was to use a modified version of the ebmaj7 chord with the A string on 6 instead of 5 as the first chord (3336), then ebmaj7, then fm or ab, and then bb. it’s good if you don’t happen to have a capo, and does pretty much the same thing

  12. Ab is wrong. The actual chord is Fm

  13. I feel like I’m gonna get attacked on this, but I used the island strum pattern: D-D-U-U-D-U, and it sounds really good. I also have a lower pitch, and surprisingly, I can sing this song! I love Billie!
