Intro: D

Verse:
D                 G   Bm
Mom and dad don't worry
D             E    D
Somebody will want me
D           G    D
I do my own laundry
D                 A  D
I don't need your pity


D               G   D
I go to liberal art school
D              A     D
Everybody's an individual
D                   G    D
I come home for the holidays
D            A       D
I am not the boy you raised

Pre-Chorus:
        G           Bm     D
My skin gleams with perspiration
         G             D   A
My heart beats with amphetamines
                G   Bm     D
I'm the saddest boy in the nation
                G         D         A
I don't want to bring you down with me

Chorus:
                    G  A  D
The world is pretty small
                     G  A  D
I think I've seen it all
              G
Annie has the last silver key
                    D     A
But she won't acknowledge me

Verse:
D                  G   D
Circles around the ice rink
Bm              A       D
Make my sadness interesting
D                    G   D
Remember me from the party?
Bm               A    D
Teach my sadness dignity

Pre-Chorus:
        G           Bm     D
My skin gleams with perspiration
         G             D   A
My heart beats with amphetamines
                G   Bm     D
I'm the saddest boy in the nation
                G         D         A
I don't want to bring you down with me

Chorus:
                    G  A  D
The world is pretty small
                     G  A  D
I think I've seen it all
              G
Annie has the last silver key
                    D     A
But she won't acknowledge me
              G
Annie has the last silver key
                    D     A
But she won't acknowledge me
