  B                           E   
I like your face despite your nose
 B                   E
17 and a half years old
    B                 E
I'm worrying about my brother finding out
            B                        E
Where's the fun in doing what you're told?


        B
I said "No!
Gb                   E
Oh give it a rest, I could persuade you
             B                    Gb
I'm not your typical, stoned 18 year old
           E
Give me a night I'll make you.
               B                           Gb
I know you're looking for salvation in the secular age,
              E
But girl I'm not your saviour"
B               Gb
Wrestle to the ground
    E
God help me now


Chorus -repeat B Gb E-:
Cause they're just girls breaking hearts
Eyes bright, uptight, just girls
But she can't be what you need if she's 17
They're just girls
They're just girls


  B                       E
a pair of frozen hands to hold,
             B                        E
Oh she's so southern so she feels the cold,
                 B                
One moment I was tearing off your blouse,
           E
Now you're living in my house.
     B                        E
What happened to just messing around?


       B            Gb           E
I said "Yo, I think I better go; I can't take you.
         B                       Gb                    E
You just sit and get stoned with 30 year olds and you think you've made it.
      B                             Gb                            E
Well, shouldn't you be xxxxing with somebody your age instead of making changes?"
B               Gb
Wrestle to the ground
E
God help me now


Chorus -repeat B Gb E-:
Cause they're just girls breaking hearts
Eyes bright, uptight, just girls
But she can't be what you need if she's 17
They're just girls
They're just girls


    E -x2-                 B Gb
I told her from the start
    E -x2-                 B Gb
Destined to be hard
    E -x2-                
I told her from the start
     B          Gb
I'll break your heart
     E -x2-                
Destined to be hard
 B         Gb   
Break your heart


        B     Gb                     E
I said "Yo, I think you'd better go; I can't take you.
               B                           Gb
I know you're looking for salvation in the secular age,
             E
But girl I'm not your saviour.
         B                              Gb                        E
Well, shouldn't you be xxxxing with somebody your age instead of making changes?"
B               Gb
Wrestle to the ground
     E
God help me now


Outro -repeat B Gb E-:
Cause they're just girls breaking hearts
Eyes bright, uptight, just girls
But she can't be what you need if she's 17
They're just girls
They're just girls

They're just girls breaking hearts
Eyes bright, uptight, just girls
But she can't be what you need if she's 17
They're just girls
They're just girls

Cause they're just girls...
Just girls, they're just girls...

    +1 is the easiest

  2. +1 is the easiest

  3. strumming pattern anyone? plz

    • i use one strum for the first part then a d du udu for the rest, probably wrong but it works

    • I don’t know how to write it when you block the strings while going down so I’ll just write D* x)
      So I use D UD*UDU U UD*UD

  4. +1 is super easy :D

  5. -4 is easier if anyone needs it

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

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.
