Intro:
Hey, leave a message

Verse:
C
Hey, call me back
         Am
When you get this
                     F
Or when you've got a minute
                 C     G
We really need to talk
 C
Wait, you know what
              Am
Maybe just forget it
                      F
Cause by the time you get this
                    C       G
Your number might be blocked

Pre-Chorus:
 Am                C
Stay and blah blah blah
         F                       C G
You just want what you can't have
   Am                  C
No wait, I'll call the cops
             F                      C G
If you don't stop I'll call your dad

Chorus:
      F               G              C
And I hate to do this to you on your birthday
      Am              E
Happy birthday by the way
         F               G              C
It's not you it's me and all that other bullxxxx
                Am
You know that's bullxxxx
           E    F
Don't you, babe
             Fm         C
I'm not your party favor

Verse:
C                                    Am
Look, now I know we could've done it better
                        F
But we can't change the weather
                          C     G
And the weather's come and gone
C                                       Am
Books don't make sense if you read them backwards
                      F
You'll single out the wrong words
                       C      G
Like you mishear all my songs

Pre-Chorus:
         Am                 C
You hear stay and blah blah blah
         F                       C G
You just want what you can't have
   Am                  C
No wait, I'll call the cops
             F                      C G
If you don't stop I'll call your dad

Chorus:
      F               G              C
And I hate to do this to you on your birthday
      Am              E
Happy birthday by the way
         F               G               C
It's not you it's me and all that other bullxxxx
                Am
You know that's bullxxxx
           E    F
Don't you, babe
             Fm
I'm not your party favor

I have no idea how to do an e, like my hands are too small ☹️

Bree

I use an E7 instead, because I have small hands as well

dosija

thx!!

Trianna

I am clueless as well. My hands are NOT able to do an E for my life, but an Em sounds just as good and if I can do an Em you can too XD

ukulele

There is an alternative to do an E by putting your ring finger on all the frets on the 4th fret, but for this song an Em chord would sound better than an E chord.

Sariana

Try with an E7 :)!

Badgarageband

I have the same issue. I use G-4,C-4,A-0,E-2

biswas

I usually just do an Em….

Liz

I had the same issue, just keep trying to do E more often, it’ll be more accordingly the more you do it.

flowerycupoftea

Same

Unknown

I do em instead, I have the same problem

Maisy

Try Em

I is corekt

Replace it with Em it sound really good

Maria

I was having the same problem, then decided to take the 4th string with the thumb, helps a lot if you try a couple of times

keaunna

i used my thumb on string 4 3 and 2 on the 4th fret then for string one my index finger on fret 2

llanesha00044

same my hands are like baby hands. sometimes i struggle playing some cords

jordandotdot

a easier way to do it is 4442 with your first finger on the 2 and your middle, ring, and pinkny on the 4s

i dont know if that’s made any sense but i hope it did

SavageSavarah

On the very last line, I like to add a C on “favor”. This song makes me sad but happy at the same time <3

michell

I actually love how it ends with the Fm. You can obviously play it however you like, but I think that ending it with that unresolved Fm sound really adds to the meaning of the song.

Nikki

I like to keep it silent on the last sentence and then do a C

llanesha00044

i do the same and i also agree :)

nObOdY

Practice ‘E’ and you’ll get MUCH MUCH better at it. Trust me. I practice this so much that ‘E’ is really easy now. If you don’t know it very well I recomend my method. You can always slow down that part of the song.

billie is brill-ie XD

just me who does a d-d-u-d-d after the first chorus with my hand covering the strings????? does that in the actual song x

Lolalola

DDUUDUUDUDUD is better. It looks hard but just do it slowly and you get it for the beginning 😁

Vee

DDU UDU DDU UDU Play that for every cord except for G and C endings. Sorry if that’s confusing just watch Elise Ucklands video for more help!

chloe

if any of you are finding hard to play e just play e7 instead that’s what i tend to do!

michell

For everyone saying they can’t do the E chord, I promise that if you keep practicing you’ll get it! I was CONVINCED that I couldn’t do one, but after a few weeks of trying to get it, I can say that I can do it now! It still takes me longer to switch to that chord than others, but I’m assuming that’ll get easier, too. Don’t give up, peeps <3

useless lesbian

for when she sing the last line of the verse, is go “I’m not your party favor”
F G C instead of whats written and i think it sounds better.

Wilderdyke

Great advice and I also am I useless lesbian

Sksksk save the turts

Why add that you are useless and lesbian? First off, no human is useless. Second, this is the internet, you don’t need to share your sexuality, it isn’t safe to share personal information. Please stay safe online and physically! <3

uku nerd

personally i like to do F Fm C,it gives it a more advanced sound:)

mighty gay lord

for the pre-chorus, i like to pluck the12th and 10th frets on the a string to replicate what it’s doing in the song.

also, @ everyone who can’t do the e chord: literally just bar the 4th fret and put your pinkie/ring finger on the a string of the 7th fret.

billieattheyromance

Here’s an alternate for E!

G-4
C-4
E-4
A-2

Nachocheese

Dude, that’s even harder xD

apollodparker@gmail.com

i usually use my thumb on the fourth fret on the top three strings, and then my middle finger for the A string if that helps!

keaunna

i used my thumb on string 4 3 and 2 on the 4th fret then for string one my index finger on fret 2

potato

its” no way” not “no wait”
