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

Chorus:
   Cm              B   
I'm in their second hand smoke
 Eb                   F7  
Still just drinking canned Coke
 Fm                          -nc- 
I don't need a Xanny to feel better
   Cm        B   
On designated drives home
 Eb               F7  
Only one who's not stoned
 Fm                        -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:
              Eb
Wakin' up at sundown -Ooh-
                    Bb
They're late to every party -Ooh-
              Fm
Nobody's ever sorry -Ooh-
               Abm
Too inebriated now to dance
                Eb
Morning as they come down -Come down-
                     Bb
Their pretty heads are hurting -Hurting-
                       Fm
They're awfully bad at learning -Learning-
              Abm
Make the same mistakes, blame circumstance

Chorus:
Cm                 B   
I'm in their second hand smoke
 Eb                  F7  
Still just drinking canned Coke
 Fm                        -nc-
I don't need a Xanny to feel better
Cm           B    
On designated drives home
 Eb             F7  
Only one who's not stoned
Fm                            Bb   Bb7
Don't give me a Xanny, now or ever

Bridge:
 Fm                                 Bb    Bb7
Please don't try to kiss me on the sidewalk
           Cm       B      Eb   Adim
On your cigarette break
  Fm                         Bb
I can't afford to love someone
    Bb7          Cm    B      Eb       Adim
Who isn't dying by mistake in Silver Lake

Interlude: Fm     Bb

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

  2. Is there anything that I can replace E with

  3. Ukulele Master

    So when i play the normal version i play dm instead of f and in the -2 version i play cm instead of eb. Hope this helped;)

  4. WayffleUWU

    First of all, your not supposed to ask for strumming patterns due to copyright, second, THANK YOU! IVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS

  5. -2 and a capo on the third fret sounds nice :)

  6. I think D sounds more accurate than Dm in the verses

  7. SpotifyPremium

    does the F sound weird to anyone else?

  8. Is there anything that can replace Bm B7 and E

  9. Lorrick Goodwin

    -2 is easier

  10. What is a “nc”

  11. BillieistheQueen

    +5

  12. -2 is really easy :)

  13. I use DDUX for each chord on the chorus, single strum for everything else.

  14. Anna Charles

    -2 works well.

  15. wherearetheavocados

    -2 is easier

  16. sarah pena

    +3 sounds better and is easier but I just do G instead of Abm

  17. YESSSSSS FINALLY

  18. Yeet my meet

    -2 is easiest

  19. hayleyhenke17

    Strumming pattern?

  20. -2 is the easiest and it sounds nice! If you do a cover of this and post it, tag me on Instagram @beautifulbre107 because I want to do one but I am super nervous.

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
