Intro: D  G  D  G

Verse:
   D
It started off with Jacob
         G
But then Edward came along
  D
I had a thing for Emmett
       G
But my love for Jasper's strong
   D
Or maybe even Carlisle
    G
But that would just be strange
      C
These boys in books are better
            A
Cause they're never gonna change

Verse:
D
I wish I was Hermione,
          G
Cause those Weasley boys are fit
    D
And I'd date Draco Malfoy
     G
If I thought he would commit
   D
Or maybe Cedric Diggory
    G
But he's in Hufflepuff.
      C
These boys in books are better
      A
And I just can't get enough

Pre-Chorus:
G                      D
Of reading everything about them
      G                         D
These guys I will always depend upon  
    G                             D
And maybe there's a guy out there just like them
      C                       A
Who's looking for a girl like Bella Swan

Nah!

Chorus:
      D                 G
These boys in books are better,
      D                 G
Cause they'll be here forever
    D                 G
And we'll always be together
    C
And you can take me bowling
            A
If you were made up by Rowling.

Interlude: D  G  D  G

Verse:
D
I was sold on Gale
      G
Who's strong and brave and tall.
    D
But then she gave us Peeta
      G
Who I think confused us all
    D
But Finnick's where my heart is
   G
So Annie, move aside!
    C
But why can't I have fallen for
    A
The ones that didn't die?!

Verse:
      D
Don't even get me started
   G
On Pride and Prejudice
     D
I've looked for Mr Darcy
          G
Girls, he really don't exist.
    D
But then again, there's Bingley --
    G
So Jane, get out the way,
      C
Cause I love a bit of cheesiness,
      A
And I love a good cliché,

Pre-Chorus:
G                           D
So boys I hope you're taking notice
      G                       D
Cause I'm one in a huge majority
  G                             D
I think that I'm more of a Luna Love good
    C                     A
But if you ask me nice, I could be your Ginny.

Chorus:
      D                 G
These boys in books are better,
      D               G
Cause they'll be here forever
          D           G
And we'll always be together
    C
And you could be a player,
            A
But I won't care if you're from Meyer.

Bridge:
      G
Don't make me use
D
Accio
G
Come on Darcy,
D
Please bring Draco!
G
Finnick's body
D
With Edward's looks
    C               A
But hurry up before I close the book!

Chorus:
      D                 G
These boys in books are better,
      D                  G
Cause they'll be here forever
          D          G
And we'll always be together
      C           
And you can be my man
               A
If you've been written by Suzanne
D                 G
Boys in books are better,
      D                 G
Cause they'll be here forever,
           D          G
And we'll always be together
      C  
And I know it's an addiction
            A
That I'm in love with fiction
       C
But as long as I'm still breathing
       A
I just have to keep on reading
        C
And it's gonna be red letter
       A
When I find a guy that's better

Than..


D
Edward, Jacob, Emmett, Jasper
G
And Harry, Ron and Draco, Cedric
D
Peeta, Gale, but I want Finnick,
G
Darcy, Bingley, Wickham, no chance


D
Edward, Jacob, Emmett, Jasper
G
And Harry, Ron and Draco, Cedric
D
Peeta, Gale, but I want Finnick,
G
Darcy, Bingley, Wickham, no chance


D
Edward, Jacob, Emmett, Jasper
G
And Harry, Ron and Draco, Cedric
D
Peeta, Gale, but I want Finnick,
G
Darcy, Bingley, Wickham, no chance


    C
And it's gonna be red letter
       A
When I find a guy that's better
     D
Than you.
