Intro: G Gaug Cmaj7

Verse 1:
G
Take a look at the clock
G
Only so long to go
G
Scrubbing smooth young skin
G
Saying I don't know
Em          Gaug              G
Grab a bag, grab a bottle but leave the what if;
Cmaj7                              G
You'll see it in the morning after your kicks.

Interlude:
Gaug Cmaj7 G x2
Mm
Mm

Verse 2:
G
All you will need for a rocking good time
G
Is a bunch of people who don't give a damn
Em             Gaug          G
There's a yes, in your head, gotta find where it's at!
Cmaj7                             G
You'll lose it in the morning but ignore that.

Interlude:
Gaug Cmaj7 G x2
Mmm
Mmm

Chorus:
C
We're not bruised
              G
They're just, party tattoos
         Em
And that colourful mess
        Gaug      G
Is just colourful regret
C                   G
Black lipstick will never be a sin
        Em                 D        C           G
We'll regret it when we're old with wrinkled up skin
Em                   D        C           G
Regret it when we're old with wrinkled up skin
Em                         D        C           G
We'll regret it when we're old with wrinkled up skin

Gaug Cmaj7 G x2
Mmmm
Mmmm

Verse 3:
G
My mummy said to always wear a coat
G
But it's warm and it's heavy and we're trying to float
Em            Gaug            G
Don't forget, she'll be right when it's 3am,
Cmaj7                      G
So shiver, but shiver with a friend.

Chorus:
C
We're not bruised
              G
They're just, party tattoos
         Em
And that colourful mess
        Gaug      G
Is just colourful regret
C                   G
Black lipstick will never be a sin
        Em                 D        C           G
We'll regret it when we're old with wrinkled up skin
Em                   D        C           G
Regret it when we're old with wrinkled up skin
G                                   Gm          Eb     D
We'll regret it when we're old with wrinkled up skin

G Gm Eb D
Oooh

Bridge:
G
Write a postcard to you at eighty four
C
Tell em you'd never dream of living behind a door
Em            Gaug          G
Life was fun, full of love, full of hopeful smiles
C                         C                       G
Bet you wish you were here, but I'll see you in a while

Gaug Cmaj7 G

Chorus:
C
We're not bruised
              G
They're just, party tattoos
         Em
And that colourful mess
Gaug      G
Is just colourful regret
C                   G
Black lipstick will never be a sin
       Em                  D        C           G
We'll regret it when we're old with wrinkled up skin
Em                   D        C           G
Regret it when we're old with wrinkled up skin
Em                         D        C           G
We'll regret it when we're old with wrinkled up skin

  1. That1awkwardgal

    For anyone wondering the plucking pattern is:
    C, E, A, G. Its quite easy once u get the hang of it

  2. What’s the strumming pattern ?

  3. What’s the strumming pattern

  4. Am7 (0-4-2-2)works really well instead of Gaug too!

  5. Majestic Feminist

    LOVE this song – one of my favorites, so glad I found these chords. I chose to switch Gaug out for Em, and Cmaj7 for C; if anyone’s not loving the sound of either of those, I’d recommend giving that a shot.

  6. The Gaug is wrong; I believe it should be a Gmaj7 (0-2-2-2 on the uke)

  7. yungpasta

    I replaced Gaug w Em and I think that sounded better

  8. Annie Martindale

    I don’t really like the sound of Gaug so I just replace it with C because I personally think it sounds better

  9. this how i play it don't @ me

    I pluck the strings in his pattern with the chords above:
    2,3,4,2,3,4,2,3,2,3,4,2,3,4,2,3
    And a:
    2,3,4,2,3,4,2,3,2.
    At the end of a verse or whatever

  10. nvm it’s the wrong chord my bad haha

  11. ok but i don’t think that Gaug sounds right??? anyone else????
