E        Ab   Dbm        A
 art is dead,    art is dead
E        Ab   Dbm        A
 art is dead,    art is dead


E             Ab                 Dbm
 entertainers like to seem complicated
    A               E
but we're not complicated
        Ab              Dbm
i can explain it pretty easily
          A             E                  Ab
have you ever been to a birthday party for children
               Dbm                 A
and one of the children won't stop screaming
                  E                 Ab
cause he's just a little attention attractor
              Dbm                 A
when he grows up to be a comic or actor
          E                   Ab
he'll be rewarded for never maturing
           Dbm               A
for never understanding or learning
           E             Ab
that every day can't be about him
              Dbm                 A
there's other people you selfish xxxxxxx


              E                  Ab
i must be psychotic, i must be demented
                   Dbm                 A
to think that i'm worthy of all this attention,
               E                       Ab
of all of this money you worked really hard for
           Dbm                           A
i slept in late while you worked at the drug store.
            E                Ab
my drug's attention, i am an addict
          Dbm                   A
but i get paid to indulge in my habit
              E                   Ab
it's all an illusion, i'm wearing make-up
            Dbm                  A
i'm wearing make-up, make-up, make-up, make-up


E        Ab        Dbm
 art is dead, so people think you're funny
A
how do you get those people's money?
E        Ab            Dbm
 art is dead, we're rolling in dough
       A                    E            Ab           Dbm       A
while Carlin rolls in his grave, in his grave, in his grave.


      E              Ab         Dbm            A
this show has got a budget, the show has got a budget
     E                  Ab                        Dbm          A
and all the poor people way more deserving of the money won't budge it
         E                 Ab            Dbm               A
cause i wanted my name in lights. when i could have fed a family of four
     E            Ab          Dbm           A
for forty xxxxing fortnights, forty xxxxing fortnights


i am an artist, please god forgive me
i am an artist, please don't revere me
i am an artist, please don't respect me
i am an artist, feel free to correct me

a self-centered artist, self-obsessed artist
i am an artist, i am an artist


               E               Ab              Dbm
but i'm just a kid, i'm just a kid, i'm just a kid, kid
    A
and maybe i'll grow out of it

I always see comments on easier transpositions, but I will say this, if you learn the chords in the correct keys of every song, you’ll get better at ukulele and I find it to be more fun playing in different keys. Just give it a try, test your mind and hands.

a really simple way to play this is by playing F, A, Dm, Bb. just repeating it the entire song works for me:)

If you switch the E in -4 to an E7 it sounds okay and it’s so much easier to play

If you want to play this song but aren’t good with all of the complicated chords, you can also play this song by repeating C, G, Am, G over and over again in a pattern.

+1 is also really easy, where you would end it with an F

I find ending -4 with a C sounds really good.
