I'm a dumb teen boy

I don't care about the government
      Eb            E
And I really need a hug
       B
I feel stupid -stupid-
Gb
Ugly -ugly-
    Eb             E
Pretend it doesn't bother me
    B        Gb
I'm not very strong but
     Eb                            E
I'll xxxx you up if you're mean to bugs

It's getting cold down here underneath the weather
          B            Gb
I skipped class to sit with you
         Eb               E
I really like your spotty sweater
   B            Gb
If ladybugs are girls
       Eb            E
How do you make kids together?
          B                Gb
What's it like in a female world
           Eb           E
I bet it's just so much better

Pre-Chorus:
Db7
I just turned fourteen
E                                     B

Chorus:
     Eb                     E                   Gb
Don't mess with me 'cause I'm a big boy now and I'm very scary
B Eb                   E                   Gb
I punch my walls, stay out at night, and I do karate
B     Eb                 E                    Gb

Verse 3:
B               Gb
I'm a dumb teen boy
      Eb          E
All I wanna do is quit
       B                  Gb
My mum told me that she's worried
      Eb              E
And I couldn't give a xxxx
       B                Gb
I have friends who understand me
      Eb                E
Their names are spider, beetle, bee
     B         Gb
They don't say much but

They have always listened to me

Verse 4:
    B             Gb
The other boys at school

Think it's cool to hate your parents
            B             Gb
But they're lying all the time
         Eb                    E
The bugs advised that I should let 'em
    B            Gb
And if you wanna cry
          Eb              E
Make sure that they never see it
   B           Gb
Or even better yet
         Eb            E
Block it out and never feel it

Pre-Chorus:
Db7
I just turned fourteen
      E                     B
And I think I know everything

Chorus:
      Eb                     E                   Gb
Don't mess with me 'cause I'm a big boy now and I'm very scary

If you don’t want to use the profanity from the original song you can say “I’ll mess you up if you’re mean to bugs” (Verse 1) and “My mom told me that she’s worried, and I’m sick of hearing it” (Verse 3) :)

You can also pluck the c and e string (not together like in order) with every chord and then strum down
So:
D: c, e, strum down
A: c, e, strum down
Gb: c, e, strum down
G: c, e, strum down.
It sound even more like the one robbie did if you tune it down to f# b d# g#

It sounds more fluid if you pluck C before switching chords then doing c, e, strum imo

Here are my recommendations for this song: In the parts with bad words, you can say “I’ll mess you up if you’re mean to bugs” (in Verse 1) and “My mom told me that she’s worried and I couldn’t care a bit” (in Verse 3). Also, for a version that’s easier for most of the song, transpose it to -2 and put a capo on the second fret. An alternate way to play the E chord is 4442 (fingers on the fourth fret for the G, C, and E strings and your finger on the second fret for the A… Read more »
