Verse 1:
             Bb
What is it about them?
                   F
I must be missing something
                     Cm
They just keep doing nothing
          Ebm
Too intoxicated to be scared
              Bb
Better off without them
                        F
They're nothing but unstable
                        Cm
Bring ashtrays to the table
                       Ebm
And that's about the only thing they share

Chorus:
   Gm              Gb   
I'm in their second hand smoke
 Bb                   C7  
Still just drinking canned Coke
 Cm                          -nc- 
I don't need a Xanny to feel better
   Gm        Gb   
On designated drives home
 Bb               C7  
Only one who's not stoned
 Cm                        -nc-
Don't give me a Xanny, now or ever

Interlude:

Can you check your Uber rating? Oh my god

-And it's like, wait, like, when?-

Verse 2:
              Bb
Wakin' up at sundown -Ooh-
                    F
They're late to every party -Ooh-
              Cm
Nobody's ever sorry -Ooh-
               Ebm
Too inebriated now to dance
                Bb
Morning as they come down -Come down-
                     F
Their pretty heads are hurting -Hurting-
                       Cm
They're awfully bad at learning -Learning-
              Ebm
Make the same mistakes, blame circumstance

Chorus:
Gm                 Gb   
I'm in their second hand smoke
 Bb                  C7  
Still just drinking canned Coke
 Cm                        -nc-
I don't need a Xanny to feel better
Gm           Gb    
On designated drives home
 Bb             C7  
Only one who's not stoned
Cm                            F   F7
Don't give me a Xanny, now or ever

Bridge:
 Cm                                 F    F7
Please don't try to kiss me on the sidewalk
           Gm       Gb      Bb   Edim
On your cigarette break
  Cm                         F
I can't afford to love someone
    F7          Gm    Gb      Bb       Edim
Who isn't dying by mistake in Silver Lake

Interlude: Cm     F

Outro:
                      Bb
What is it about them?
                           F
I must be missing something
                            Cm
They just keep doin' nothing
                -nc-
Too intoxicated to be scared
 Bb   F
Hmm, hmm
Cm   Gm  Gb     Bb
Hmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm
 Bb
Come down
 F
Hurting
Cm  Gb
