Intro:
Hey, leave a message

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

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

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

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

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

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

  1. 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!

  2. i tend to lightly mute all the strings and strum —> before the beginning of the song and before verses start.

    <—

  3. wherearetheavocados

    Strumming pattern plz?

  4. Instead of a E you can do an A7
    oOoo <- that is the chord on the Ukulele!
    oooo
    oooo
    oooo

  5. I can’t even do E. my fingers aren’t able to be place at the right chord

  6. e7 instead of E and G7 instead of Fm, I think they sound a bit better that way and it’s easier to play. Good luck !!

  7. The amazingly sarcastic annoying dude

    Hello children FYI I played this side by the song and just so you know they are the right notes children cheerio

  8. On the last line when you say favour, add a c chord and play slowly across strings. I feel its a nice finish

  9. Curbneysandal

    Is there an alternative to Fm? It just doesn’t sound right to me.

  10. I threw a capo on the 2nd fret and I think I like it a bit better

  11. Angelina Mallano

    This was really easy and helpful, I’ve been looking everywhere for this song and everywhere else was way to advanced so thank you!!! 😁😁😁

  12. Is there like an alternative/easier way to play the E cord? I can’t stretch my fingers far enough for that one lol

  13. Wuts the strumming pattern??
