Verse:
C       D           G     Em
Sorry I didn't kiss you
         C        D         G
But it's obvious I wanted to
C          D          G                 Em
Bubble gum down my throat, and it's a curse
       C             D          G
But my luck couldn't get any worse

Chorus:
         C             D         G      Em
'Cause I swallowed the bubble gum
              C                D            G
Oh, and these seven years will be pretty dumb
C            D         G      Em
Pink flowers grow from my skin
C            D         G
Pepto bismol veins and I grin

Verse:
C           D        G   Em
You look so nice in your shirt
     C       D      G
It's sad because it just hurts
C      D      G     Em
I'd do anything for you
    C            D         G
But would you do that for me, too?

Chorus:
         C             D         G      Em
'Cause I swallowed the bubble gum
              C                D            G
Oh, and these seven years will be pretty dumb
C            D         G      Em
Pink flowers grow from my skin
C            D         G
Pepto bismol veins and I grin

  1. The original is Bm E7 A (two down strokes on Bm, two on E7 and four on A) throughout

    I use Bm E7 A throughout the whole song (two down strokes on Bm, two on E7 and four on A) sounds way better in my opinion

  4. Dm G C C7 sounds better

  5. D D U works well

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
