remember keys
F                          F
they're gonna clean up your looks
F                          F
with all the lies and the books
F                        C
to make a citizen out of you
              Bb           Bb
because they sleep with a gun
             F
and keep an eye on you son
            C                      F
so they can watch all the things you do


F                          F
because the drugs never work
     F               F
they gonna give you a smirk
F              C
cause they got methods
                 F
of keeping you clean
               Bb
they're gonna rip out your heads
          F
your aspirations to shreads
         C                      F
another caught in the murder machine


             F                          F
they say all teenagers scare the living xxxx out of me
           F                    C
they could care less as long as someone will bleed
   Bb
so darken your clothes
           F
or strike a violent pose
               C
maybe they'll leave you alone
        F
but not me


F                          F
the boys and girls in the clique
      F                 F
the awful names that they stick 
           F                  C
you're never gonna fit in much kid
              Bb
but if you're troubled and hurt
             F
what you got under your shirt
               C                            F
we'll make them pay for the things that they did


             F                          F
they say all teenagers scare the living xxxx out of me
           F                    C
they could care less as long as someone will bleed
   Bb
so darken your clothes
           F
or strike a violent pose
               C
maybe they'll leave you alone
        F
but not me


* oh yeah *
- Solo -


             F                          F
they say all teenagers scare the living xxxx out of me
           F                    C
they could care less as long as someone will bleed
   Bb
so darken your clothes
           F
or strike a violent pose
               C
maybe they'll leave you alone
        F
but not me


-same chord pattern-

All together now,

teenagers scare the living xxxx out of me
they could care less as long as someone will bleed
so darken your clothes
or strike a violent pose
maybe they'll leave you alone
but not me

teenagers scare the living xxxx out of me
they could care less as long as someone will bleed
so darken your clothes
or strike a violent pose
maybe they'll leave you alone
but not me

  1. I find +3 quite easy to play ^^

  2. Does anyone know what the solo part is????

  3. throw on an accent, go to -4 with kapo on the 4th fret, and you’ve got a pretty close match!

  4. TaxiCabHometown

    This sounds off….. Something’s definitely missing. I don’t think it sounds very good on the uke but welcome to the black parade does.

  5. frank iero

    rad

  6. Victoria

    Ok that didn’t quite work… It’s supposed to go like:

    (F) to make a (C) citizen out of (C7) you

  7. Victoria

    I play it at +1 and I like to throw in a c7 chord in the verses.
    F
    they’re gonna clean up your looks
    F
    with all the lies and the books
    C C7
    to make a citizen out of you
    Bb
    because they sleep with a gun
    F
    and keep an eye on you son
    C F
    so they can watch all the things you do

    …and the same way in all the other verses. I don’t know if it’s just me but I felt like a chord was missing there and this works nice I think. For a strumming pattern I use DDU-UDU.
    Hope I helped!

  8. Victoria

    VloggyOllie did a very nice cover on YouTube so if you’re looking for the chords she used in her video, transfer it a step higher (+1). It uses the Bb chord but overall it’s not difficult and sounds the best in my opinion.
    -4 is the easiest version but I just can’t find a nice way to sing along in tune to that one. Have fun playing! :)

  9. repressed emo malia

    i found that Em instead of E is easier to play and sounds fairly similar

  10. TheWoodenWall

    I like to use -4 with the strum pattern DDUD

  11. Has a soul voice

    I found this song very easy to play and sing in +1; thank you for the chords!

  12. This really helped! I just started learning the uke and I’m starting with the easiest one (-4) then once I finally learned that one I’m gonna go higher the difficulty of the song so I can learn other chords :) Thank you!!

  13. Strum Pattern?

  14. this doesn’t sound right !!!!

  15. Beautiful.

  16. I don’t know if it’s just me but it feels like a chord is missing it is really “boring” if you understand. Maybe it is just me sorry :/

  17. -2 is easy , just G,A, and D

  18. weyls_on_the_bus

    -4 is super easy to play…

  19. Where it says caught in the murder machine it’s supposed to say cog…

  20. cookistlr

    +3 is an easy version
