Intro -x2-: E   A Ab A Ab

Verse:
E
I never was a cool kid

No one ever really gave a damn what I did
           A Ab A Ab    E
I liked to party but I never got invited
                                A Ab A Ab
Alone again so me, myself and I
E
Tried karaoke but they told me I was only okay
                      A Ab A Ab
I guess I never should sang Beyonce
E
or MJ, so I dropped the Mic

Pre-Chorus:
     B            A                                 
Oh yeah all the people 
                              B
In the bar turned round and stared
             A                            B
I was on my knees and whipping round my hair
      A
and I knew that I was winning

Chorus:
          E                                   
Close my eyes and see the crowd
B         A                    B
but my fingers don't make any sound
    E             B   A       B   
my Air Guitar
E
I keep it with me night and day
B           A                      C   B 
You won't believe the way that I can play
   Db    B     A    B      
my Air Guitar, Air Guitar
       E      Bb      E

Verse:
E                                 A Ab A Ab   E
In my head I am a Rockstar and I probably date a Pop Star
                      
a Pop Star and a model on the side
A Ab A Ab    E
I know I'll never make it
                                
but tonight I'm good enough to fake it
        A Ab A Ab    E 
bend an imaginary string and break it,
                                A Ab A Ab
replace it in the backstage of my mind

Pre-Chorus:
B              A                                
But I know my friends 
                             B
all think I'm living such a lie
         A                                  B
but the lie they think I'm living gets me high
          A
it's the gift that keeps on giving

Chorus:
          E                                   
Close my eyes and see the crowd
B         A                     B
but my fingers don't make any sound
    E             B   A       B   
my Air Guitar
E
Jimmy Page and Brian May
B        A                     C  B
Won't believe the way that I can play

       E      Bb      E     A Ab A Ab     E     Bb      E      A Ab A Ab

You think there's nothing there
Bsus4          Cm7
it's simply made of air
Db               Gbm
you laugh but you're just scared
A              
try it if you dare
