Verse 1:
B
Hold my head a little higher
A
Can't you tell I love a liar?
E
I know what I look like to you
B
I would say it's excessive
A
Or maybe damn impressive
E
I'll admit I'm confused
 
Pre-Chorus:
B
I've gotta remember
A
That I'm just a toy
E
'Til you got my hopes up
E7
And now I'm annoyed
B
You thought you could charm me
A
And, damn it, you're right
E
So watch me fall for every damn stereotype
 
Chorus:
B
You can't help it
G                D                  Gb
This is just how we were taught to love
      B                  G
Oh, there's a name for boys like you
     D
And yet I feel lucky to hear all your lines
    Gb
I hate that they shake me up every time
 
Interlude: B
 
Verse 2:
B
Hold my hand for just a second
A
See you soon, what do we reckon?
E
Maybe I'm not just a friend
B
But we're so close, I thought we'd kiss
A
Turns out you're just good at this
E
But how 'bout you do it again?
 
Pre-Chorus:
        B
Oh no, I've gotta remember
A
That I'm just a toy
E
'Til you got my hopes up
E7
And now I'm annoyed
B
You thought you could charm me
A
And, damn it, you're right
E
So watch me fall for every damn stereotype
 
Chorus:
B
You can't help it
G                D                  Gb
This is just how we were taught to love
      B                  G
Oh, there's a name for boys like you
     D
And yet I feel lucky to hear all your lines
    Gb
I hate that they shake me up every time
B
Guess I'll take it
G                D                  Gb
This is just how we were taught to love
      Bm                  G
Oh, there's a name for boys like you
     D
And yet I feel lucky to hear all your lines
    Gb
I hate that they shake me up every time
 
Bridge:
Bm
They tell me, "Don't go there
G
We know you love a nightmare
D
There's more than a crush here
Gb
Why aim to be crushed here?"
Bm
They tell me, "Don't go there
G
We know you love a nightmare
D
There's more than a crush here
Gb
Why aim to be crushed here?"
 

      Bm       G         D    Gb    B
Oh, there's a name for boys like you

I don’t really have a set strumming pattern, and it depends if you are singing it a bit faster than the song, in which I would use -2, and pluck the bottom three chords for each word. (KIND OF, I KNOW THAT THIS ISN’T HOW THE SONG GOES, BUT THIS IS WHAT I USE)

What’s a good strum pattern?

the one that I’ve found works for me is D DU U DUDU and just repeating, or you could add some variety to the pattern and do D DU U DUU. Whichever works for you but that is just what I found that works and sounds the closest to the actual song. :-)

-2 is really good for people who can *play* the e chord but aren’t *good* at it…

i found that if you put your first finger on all of the strings on the 4th fret that it makes the same sound as E :)

I use an Em7 instead of an E

I really like this transposed to +3. Easy to play, but is better for higher singers.
