Intro:
Hey, leave a message

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

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

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

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

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

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

  2. Instead of using E, I use Em… it’s much easier and it works the same!

  3. you probably just clicked on the transposer

  11. Bujicejubegcgecubc8c

    I’m a beginner, and E is too hard for me, so I used F instead. Also, G is too hard for me as well, so I just skipped it, and it sounds just fine. :)
