DmDm chord                            CC chord          BbBb chord
Remember how we used to party up all night
                 CC chord                           DmDm chord
Sneaking out and looking for a taste of real life
                CC chord              BbBb chord
Drinking in the small town firelight
            CC chord
-Pabst Blue Ribbon on ice-


DmDm chord                     CC chord
Sweet sixteen and we had arrived
BbBb chord                              CC chord
Walking down the street as they whistle, "Hi, hi!"
DmDm chord                            CC chord
Stealin' police cars with the senior guys
BbBb chord                                CC chord
Teachers said we'd never make it out alive


DmDm chord                        CC chord
There she was my new best friend
              BbBb chord                         CC chord
High heels in her hands, swayin' in the wind
                    DmDm chord                    CC chord                    AmAm chord
While she starts to cry, mascara runnin' down her little Bambi eyes:

"Lana, how I hate those guys."


BbBb chord                        CC chord
This is what makes us girls
                  DmDm chord                           CC chord
We don't look for heaven and we put our love first
                    BbBb chord                  CC chord
Don't you know we'd die for it? It's a curse
           DmDm chord                  CC chord
Don't cry about it, don't cry about it
BbBb chord                        CC chord
This is what makes us girls
                     DmDm chord                            CC chord
We don't stick together 'cause we put our love first
                  DmDm chord                  CC chord
Don't cry about him, don't cry about him
                AmAm chord
It's all gonna happen


DmDm chord                                    CC chord       BbBb chord
And that's where the beginning of the end begun
          CC chord                         DmDm chord
Everybody knew that we had too much fun
                   GG chord                        BbBb chord
We were skippin' school and drinkin' on the job
             CC chord
-With the boss-


DmDm chord                     CC chord
Sweet sixteen and we had arrived
BbBb chord                          CC chord
Baby's table dancin' at the local dive
DmDm chord                       CC chord
Cheerin our names in the pink spotlight
AmAm chord
Drinkin' cherry schnapps in the velvet night

DmDm chord                        CC chord
Know we used to go break in
              BbBb chord                    CC chord
to the hotel pool, glittering we'd swim
                  DmDm chord                      CC chord
Runnin' from the cops in our black bikini tops
                               AA chord
screaming, "Get us while we're hot"

"We don't give a whaaat!"


BbBb chord                        CC chord
This is what makes us girls
                  DmDm chord                           CC chord
We don't look for heaven and we put our love first
                    BbBb chord                  CC chord
Don't you know we'd die for it? It's a curse
           DmDm chord                  CC chord
Don't cry about it, don't cry about it
BbBb chord                        CC chord
This is what makes us girls
                     DmDm chord                            CC chord
We don't stick together 'cause we put our love first
                  DmDm chord                  CC chord
Don't cry about him, don't cry about him
                AmAm chord
It's all gonna happen


DmDm chord                           CC chord
The prettiest crowd that you had ever seen
BbBb chord                          CC chord
Ribbons in our hair and our eyes gleamed mean
   DmDm chord                        CC chord
a freshmen generation of degenerate beauty queens
BbBb chord            CC chord
And you know something?


              DmDm chord                  CC chord
They were the only friends I ever had
            BbBb chord                         CC chord
We got into trouble and when stuff got bad
           DmDm chord                        CC chord
I got sent away, I was waving on the train platform
BbBb chord                             CC chord
Crying 'cause I know I'm never comin' back.


BbBb chord                        CC chord
This is what makes us girls
                  DmDm chord                           CC chord
We don't look for heaven and we put our love first
                    BbBb chord                  CC chord
Don't you know we'd die for it? It's a curse
           DmDm chord                  CC chord
Don't cry about it, don't cry about it
BbBb chord                        CC chord
This is what makes us girls
               DmDm chord                             CC chord
Darlin' little queens do you know what you're worth?
                   DmDm chord                   CC chord
I'll tell you everyday till you get it, girl
               AmAm chord
It's all gonna happen


BbBb chord                     CC chord
This is what makes us girls now, baby.
DmDm chord                      CC chord
This is why we rule the world now, baby.
BbBb chord                     CC chord
This is what makes us girls now, baby.
DmDm chord              CC chord
Why we rule the world now, baby, oh.
