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

I'm not your party favor

I replaced the E for Em. E is really hard for me to do so I did Em. Also, the song sounds better with Em.

Instead of E for me I didi it a different way by doing a d on the fourth fret with one finger doing am on the secod fret as normal. I tried EM but wasnt that keen on the sound so I recommend my method!

No I promise Em7 sounds WAY better

Do Em7

you can also use E7 as another alternitive

The E minor only works is you want the song to sound harmonic, but the true version uses dissonance.

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

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.

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

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

Bree
Guest

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

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

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.

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

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

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

G-4

Dude, that’s even harder xD

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!

mighty gay lord
Guest
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.

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
Guest

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

im cute ok

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
