Intro:
Hey, leave a message

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

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

Chorus:
      G               A              D
And I hate to do this to you on your birthday
      Bm              Gb
Happy birthday by the way
         G               A              D
It's not you it's me and all that other bullxxxx
                Bm
You know that's bullxxxx
           Gb    G
Don't you, babe
             Gm         D
I'm not your party favor

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

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

Chorus:
      G               A              D
And I hate to do this to you on your birthday
      Bm              Gb
Happy birthday by the way
         G               A               D
It's not you it's me and all that other bullxxxx
                Bm
You know that's bullxxxx
           Gb    G
Don't you, babe
             Gm
I'm not your party favor

  1. Instead of saying bull**** you can an senseless or something like that.

  2. replacing the E with E7 sounds pretty much the same for yall beginners who cant quite get the E yet :)

  3. loveee💘💘

  4. LittleTrashCan

    Adding a c to the last word sounds pretty good

  5. Bre McCarthy

    What is the strum pattern? I’m new to playing and I’m just starting to figure it out.

  6. Lauren❤️

    Fm is life tho

  7. Lauren❤️

    Fm is life

  8. ya girl liv

    how do you do the e chord?? i have very small hands :/

    • i have small hands too and i find that you can just play the second and last string in the chord and it sounds

      • A|-0-1-0-0
        E|0-0-0-0
        C|-0-0-0-3
        G|0-0-0-2
        or
        put your first finger on the a string second fret, third finger on the c string fourth fret, second finger on the g string fourth fret

    • I just play the first 2 strings in the chord and just mute the third one and it sounds pretty similar (first finger on the first string in the first fret, second finger on the last string in the second fret and just mute the third string (put ur finger on it put don’t press down) with ur third finger)

    • I play it by baring the GCE strings with my thumb on the 4th fret and my pointer finger on the A string second fret.

    • Hailey Wheeler

      I have really small hands as well but you can get away with either muting the third finger note, or playing it with your pinky rather than your third finger. Don’t worry, though! Once you play the uke for a while no matter the size of your hands it becomes quite easy to play a string. I’ve surprised myself because I have really little hands but have managed to bend them in some pretty extraordinary ways

      • Or, if you just play the first finger note and third finger note, it tends to sound the same as well. But my first two options are also pretty similar sounding if not the same.

    • You can play it 4402

  9. definitely not a bee

    Use your pointer finger for the first note(first string) your middle finger for the second note(third string) and little finger for the last note(fourth string)

  10. I find it best to end the song with C after Fm

  11. strumming pattern is DDUUDU x2 but the second C and G you only play strumming pattern once

  12. acciolovegood

    it’s only Am, C, G, and F for the whole song (not the chord progression but that’s all I know) The strumming is DDU UDU (down down up, up down up) over and over until after the 1st chorus it’s a quick mute DUDU (down up down up) then DDU UDU the rest of the song (which is how it sounds in the actual song) hope this is clear!! :)

  13. -5 was easiest for me :)

  14. lil tip; if fm is too hard for you, try dm, it’s easy and it’s quick to switch chords

  15. in case anyone wants to do a clean version of this song, you can replace bullxxxx with nonsense

    • I said “it’s not you it’s me, I tried to put this nicely. Was that nicely? Was is babe?”

  16. Honestly, the Fm is so satisfying, like I low key play it just to use it lol

  17. I LOVE BILLIE!;)

  18. Definitely not a hornet

    I’m having a little trouble playing Fm, any tips?

    • try dm, it’s basically f but it’s much easier to switch between f and dm (i’m not sure how to explain it so if u don’t know what it looks like google it lmao sorry)

    • apricot-princess

      what I do is play F normally
      which is…
      4| empty
      3| finger one on fret one
      2| empty
      1| finger 2 on fret two
      but I just add my pinky onto the third fret, fourth string or slide my wrist down and use my ring finger there instead.
      hope I helped :)
      also E natural sucks so I use Em which sounds fine so yeah I know a lot of people struggle with E (including myself)

  19. coolbeans15

    i need more of her songs on here :,)

  20. YESSSS!
