Intro -x2-:
Am C F Dm
Am C Dm

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

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

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

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

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

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

Outro:
F
Give me envy, give me malice, give me your attention
Dm
Give me envy, give me malice, baby, give me a break
Am
When I say shotgun, you say wedding
F                C           F
Shotgun wedding, shotgun wedding
F                                Dm
Boys will be boys, hiding in estrogen
Dm
And boys will be boys
F                                Dm
Boys will be boys, hiding in estrogen
            C         Am
And wearing Aubergine Dreams
