Intro -x2-: A  E  Db  D

Verse 1:
A               E
I'm a dumb teen boy
      Db                   D
I eat sticks and rocks and mud
        A              E
I don't care about the government
      Db            D
And I really need a hug
       A
I feel stupid -stupid-
E
Ugly -ugly-
    Db             D
Pretend it doesn't bother me
    A        E
I'm not very strong but
     Db                            D
I'll xxxx you up if you're mean to bugs

Interlude -x4-: A  E  Db  D

Verse 2:
A            E              Db             D
It's getting cold down here underneath the weather
          A            E
I skipped class to sit with you
         Db               D
I really like your spotty sweater
   A            E
If ladybugs are girls
       Db            D
How do you make kids together?
          A                E
What's it like in a female world
           Db           D
I bet it's just so much better

Pre-Chorus:
B7
I just turned fourteen
D                                     A
And I think this year I'm gonna be mean

Chorus:
     Db                     D                   E
Don't mess with me 'cause I'm a big boy now and I'm very scary
A Db                   D                   E
I punch my walls, stay out at night, and I do karate
A     Db                 D                    E
Don't message me cause I won't reply, I wanna make you cry
A                  Db                       D
Ain't that how its s'posed to be? Though it isn't me
     E
Boys will be bugs right?

Interlude:
A  E  Db  D
A  E  Db    D
      Boys will be bugs right?

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

Interlude: A  E  Db  D

Verse 4:
    A             E
The other boys at school
           Db                D
Think it's cool to hate your parents
            A             E
But they're lying all the time
         Db                    D
The bugs advised that I should let 'em
    A            E
And if you wanna cry
          Db              D
Make sure that they never see it
   A           E
Or even better yet
         Db            D
Block it out and never feel it

Pre-Chorus:
B7
I just turned fourteen
      D                     A
And I think I know everything

Chorus:
      Db                     D                   E
Don't mess with me 'cause I'm a big boy now and I'm very scary
A Db                   D                   E
I punch my walls, stay out at night, and I do karate
A     Db                 D                    E
Don't message me cause I won't reply, I wanna make you cry
A                  Db                       D

Cavetown is underrated I love these songs

Boop ^w^

I totally agree.

Hailey

Definitely. I love listening to him when I’m writing, doing art, trying to sleep – or anytime. I’m listening to him right now actually.

Madi Robinson

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) :)

Gustahvo hgehnsks

Thank u!

cuddles

gustavo you’re pfp is pretty cool tho

Taya Paquet

Or my mom told me thst shes worriedand I couldn’t care a bit.

yabby doodleman

thank u!!!

yoda_with_a_uke

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#

gayraeofsun

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

I love this idea! It sounds great, but one thing I tried that you guys can try is the same thing, but when you play Gb do is e,c strum down. This is just for an alternate :>

U-U yessir

Twentyonelemonboys

This song is amazing on ukulele!!!!

your local indie nerd

I adore this song, Cavetown is so underrated :)

cuddles

i agREEEEE

total.yaoi.fangirl

yes yes yes

yuliee

tuning your ukulele half a step down makes it have a really nice sound!

Nour

+3 is the most easy one! It sounds equally good as the original :)

olliver

strumming pattern?

HaloPaw

DDX -repeat-

Abra_Castabra

I keep seeing people use X in the strumming patterns and I don’t know what it is!! I’m fairly new to playing ukulele and it’d be nice if someone told me what it means :)

ukutabs biggest fan

an X means you don’t play! i don’t know if you’ve learned to mute the strings on a count yet, but essentially, you’ll strum down twice, and on the second strum cut it short by muting the strings with your hand. i hope this helps!

Braces_aninations

Dude, I absolutely love this song! Thx, I didn’t use the cuss words tho
