Intro -x2-: Bb F Gm7
 
Verse 1:
Bb         F         Gm7
I was just born like this
Bb                F      Gm7
Wish that I could change it
Bb            F           Gm7
Four peculiar limbs and a head that doesn't fit
Bb                F       Gm7 Eb7
I wish that I was still a kid
 
Verse 2:
Bb         F         Gm7
I was just born like this
Bb           F        Gm7
Doctors knew before I did
Bb              F     Gm7
There's another snail living with me in my shell
Bb                 F          Gm7 Eb7
It's fair to say I don't like it
 
Interlude -x4-: Bb Eb7 Bb Eb7 Gm7 F
 
Chorus:
Bb          Eb7          Bb            Eb7
I'm hanging out with the bullets in my mouth
Gm7                         F
And when you look away I'll spit them out
Bb          Eb7          Bb            Eb7
I'm hanging out with the foxes and the hounds
Gm7                          F
And when I fit in I'll break back out
 
Interlude:
    Bb Eb7 Bb Eb7 Gm7 F
    Bb Eb7 Bb Eb7 Gm7 F
    Ab G   Gb
    Bb Eb7 Bb Eb7 Ab G Gb
 
Verse 3:
Bb                   F         Gm7
I really hope you've found something
Bb F      Gm7
  Entertaining
Bb                F                      Gm7  Eb7
Honestly I've had enough of looking at a dead man
 
Interlude: Bb F Gm7 F
 
Bridge:
Bb           F
I just wanna scrape my knees
Gm7          Eb7
Cry until my mommy sees
Bb          F
Popsicle to make a mess
Gm7         Eb7
All over my Sunday best
 
Bb          F    Gm7  Eb7
Learn everything
Bb      F          Gm7   Eb7
For the first time again
 
Outro:
       Ab
I just wanna be a kid
       Bb
I just wanna be a kid
      Dbm              D           Dm             Bb
But I don't wanna be a kid who was born like this

I found the switch between Bb and Eb7 to be really hard, so I just did ya know, the substitute E chord (2-4-4-4) except a semitone down (1-3-3-3) hope that helps :D
