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

  1. twenty-one-phans

    ok i can barely play an E as it is but even when i do it doesn’t sound right??????

  2. All i need is strumming patterns

    What’s the strumming pattern???

  3. hey guys quick tip if you’re struggling with E,
    the exact same sound happens when you play D, BUT then slide that down two frets. to the fourth fret. and there you have an easy E

  4. empty inside

    replace E with E7

  5. You should really do, “when the party’s over” by Billie Eilish it’s like a sequel to this song.

  6. If you end with a C at the very end it sounds really good and finishes the song nicely :)

  7. What can you use instead of E?

  8. strumming pattern?????

  9. I’m actually seizing this is so true, and great username by the way

  10. AsoCantPlayUke

    Of course one with your username would say this lol but seriously you don’t need to get so mad

  11. It sounds really good if you change E to Em

  12. WishingforHappiness

    Oh my god, thank you so much. I couldn’t stop laughing while reading that😂 you don’t have to get so angry over something like that, but I understand. Just, if you’re gonna do that, try to tone it down a little. Btw, love you username

  13. if you need an easier version go on youtube and search the Elise Euckland tutorial

      Or you could use the Transpose tool to set the chords in a different key, for example +1 or something :)

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
