Gbm                   A
 Sit tight, I'm gonna need you to keep time
      D                  E                         Gbm
Come on just snap, snap, snap your fingers for me
                     A
Good, good now we're making some progress
       D                E                        Gbm
Come on just tap, tap, tap your toes to the beat
          A   D                     E                        Gbm
And I believe this may call for a proper Introduction, and well
           A   D                       E                   Gbm
Don't you see, I'm the narrator, and this is just the prologue?


E                        Gbm
Swear to shake it up, if you swear to listen
          D                  A               E
Oh, we're still so young but desperate for attention
 D         E      Gbm
I aim to be, your eyes, trophy boys, trophy wives
E                        Gbm
Swear to shake it up, if you swear to listen
          D               A               E
Oh, we're still so young, desperate for attention
 D         E      Gbm
I aim to be, your eyes, trophy boys, trophy wives


    Gbm              A
Applause, applause, no wait wait
     D                        E
Dear studio audience, I've an announcement to make:
   Gbm                               A
It seems the artists these days are not who you think
         D                       E             Gbm
So we'll pick back up on that on another page
          A   D                     E                        Gbm
And I believe this may call for a proper Introduction, and well
           A   D                      E                   Gbm
Don't you see, I'm the narrator and this is just the prologue


E                        Gbm
Swear to shake it up, if you swear to listen
          D               A               E
Oh, we're still so young, desperate for attention
 D         E      Gbm
I aim to be, your eyes, trophy boys, trophy wives
E                        Gbm
Swear to shake it up, if you swear to listen
          D               A               E
Oh, we're still so young, desperate for attention
 D         E      Gbm
I aim to be, your eyes, trophy boys, trophy wives


Gbm                  -D-         -E-
Swear to shake it up, you swear to listen
Gbm                  -A-         -E-
Swear to shake it up, you swear to listen
Gbm                  -D-         -E-
Swear to shake it up, you swear to listen
Gbm                   E
Swear to shake it up, swear to shake it up


E                        Gbm
Swear to shake it up, if you swear to listen
          D               A               E
Oh, we're still so young, desperate for attention
 D         E       Gbm
I aim to be, your eyes, trophy boys, trophy wives
E                         Gbm
Swear to shake it up, if you swear to listen
          D               A               E
Oh, we're still so young, desperate for attention
 D        E  E 
I aim to be, your eyes

  1. teresa_the_traitor

    the title of the song is not the only difference it is the only difference between martyrdom and suicide is press coverage

  2. HeyLookAtThat

    I like to use Emaj instead of E. It makes it a lot easier on any song for me

    • Hey I’ve just started to learn and I was wondering if you could maybe give me instructions on how to play emaj

  3. If you don’t like E in the 0 then just use EM it works just as well

  4. That One Girl

    Substitute for E please?

  5. The chords are the same for pity party for Melanie Martinez if you don’t play E

  6. Strumming pattern?

  7. tearsofpainandsuicide

    THE SONG IS CALLED The only difference between martyrdom and suicide is press conference!!!!!!!!!!OMG

    • seahorsemonkey

      Conference? I thought it was coverage…

      • Ryden Is Real (and the government knows it)

        Actually the full title is ‘The Only Difference Between Martyrdom and Suicide is Press Coverage’, not conference xx =]

    • an emo person

      They did that because this is the alt. title so they didn’t have to type out the whole ‘the only difference between martyrdom and suicide is press coverage’ calm your non-gender-specific flaps

  8. pandahope31

    If you are having trouble with the chord changes, it helps to start off slower than the song so you can learn to switch to the chord, and then slowly make it faster. That’s what I did when i first had to learn a song with the ‘E’ chord, and it really helped.

  9. I replaced the E with a Bm and I think it works great and is much easier!

  10. carjourneygirl

    on the ‘ah ah ah ah’ in the ‘badada’ part I like to mute my uke by laying my left pinky finger over all four strings and play D U D U like this:

    D U D U
    ah ah ah ah

    and then I like to finish on an E

  11. Kat In The Hat

    +3 is easier, but I prefer to play +5. It just sounds better.

  12. when i say shotgun you say wedding

    Should the ending be a D?
