Intro: C Em D F

Verse:
C
Wild thing
             Em                D     F
I'll eat you up into something new
C               Em
You'll say last night in my room
         D   F
a forest grew and grew

Verse:
C
Until the walls were green
    Em                    D       F
And from the ceiling fell vines
C                 Em                     D       F
And you lay there wishing your world was mine

Verse:
C                          Em              D       F
You jumped into a boat and sailed out very far
C                             Em                            D      F
For weeks and years until you came to where the wild things are

Chorus:
         G                             F                        C     Cmaj7
And they roar, and they roll, and they claw with their terrible eyes
   G                           F  
Be still you will say and they'll fall

Cause you're the wildest of all

Interlude: C   Em    D    F

Verse:
C              Em                  D        F
There's a wild thing inside of our souls
C              Em                 D        F
And a sense of home from young to old
C                    Em                D       F
Inside of each of us there is a hidden child
C               Em                D        F
All you have to do is learn to be wild

Chorus:
         G                             F                        C     Cmaj7
And they roar, and they roll, and they claw with their terrible eyes
   G                           F    C   Cmaj7    
Be still you will say and they'll fall
  G
I am the sun
       F             C    Cmaj7
I will rise and I'll set
G                        F
But you're the brightest thing that I ever met

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
