Intro -x2-:
Dm F Bb Gm
Dm F Gm

Verse:
     Bb                        Gm
Well she's not bleeding on the ballroom floor
                 Bb
Just for the attention
                     Gm      F
'Cause that's just ridiculously odd
     Bb                       Gm
Well she sure is gonna get it
Gm                                              Bb
Here's the setting: Fashion magazines line the walls, now
                           Gm     Dm       Bb
The walls line the bullet ho-ooo-oles

Chorus:
Dm                   Am
Have some composure, where is your posture
Bb
Oh, no, no
       Am                   F
You're pulling the trigger, pulling the trigger
Gm
All wrong
Dm                   Am
Have some composure, where is your posture
Bb
Oh, no, no
       Am                   F
You're pulling the trigger, pulling the trigger
Gm
All wrong

Post-Chorus:
Bb
Give me envy, give me malice, give me your attention
Gm
Give me envy, give me malice, baby, give me a break
Dm
When I say shotgun, you say wedding
Bb                F          Gm
Shotgun wedding, shotgun wedding

Verse:
Bb
She didn't choose this role
Gm
But she'll play it and make it sincere so
Bb      Gm   F
You cry, you cry
Bb
But they believe it from the tears and the teeth
        Gm                          Dm
Right down to the blood at her feet
Dm                                  F
Boys will be boys, hiding in estrogen
F           A         Dm
And wearing Aubergine Dreams
             Bb
Give me a break, break, break, break

Chorus:
Dm                   Am
Have some composure, where is your posture
Bb
Oh, no, no
       Am                   F
You're pulling the trigger, pulling the trigger
Gm
All wrong
Dm                   Am
Have some composure, where is your posture
Bb
Oh, no, no
       Am                   F
You're pulling the trigger, pulling the trigger
Gm        Am
All wrong

Bridge:
Am                   Bb                Dm    F
Come on, this is screaming photo oooo-oooop, op
Am              Bb
Come on, come on
Bb                              Dm
This is screaming, this is screaming
                        F
This is screaming photo op
Bb
Boys will be boys, baby

Boys will be boys
Dm
Boys will be boys, baby

Shotgun wedding, shotgun wedding
Bb                                Gm
Boys will be boys, hiding in estrogen

And boys will be boys
