 F
If at some point we all succumb
     F
For goodness sake let us be young
         F
Because time gets harder to outrun
    F
And I'm nobody, I'm not done


       F
With a cool cool breeze and dirty knees
  F
I rest on childhood memories
  F
We all got old at breakneck speed
 F
Slow it down, go easy on me


    Bb         C
Go easy on me
Bb                C
Aaah aaah ah-ah aaah
Bb                C
aaah aaah ah-ah ah,
        F
ah-ah aahh

Chorus:
       F               Bb       C
Put a wetsuit on, come on, come on
           F                  Bb        C
Grow your hair out long, come on, come on
       F
Put a t-shirt on
        Bb           C            F
Do me wrong, do me wrong, do me wrong


F
If it's up and after you
    F
What do you suppose that you would do?
       F
You're all whacked out from lack of sleep
      F
You blame it on the friends you keep
   F
You want to do things differently
    F
And do them independently
   F
We all got old at breakneck speed
  F
Slow it down, go easy on me


    Bb         C
Go easy on me
Bb                C
Aaah aaah ah-ah aaah
Bb                C
aaah aaah ah-ah ah,
        F
ah-ah aahh

Chorus:
       F               Bb       C
Put a wetsuit on, come on, come on
           F                  Bb        C
Grow your hair out long, come on, come on
       F
Put a t-shirt on
        Bb           C            F
Do me wrong, do me wrong, do me wrong


       F               Bb       C
Put a wetsuit on, come on, come on
           F                  Bb        C
Grow your hair out long, come on, come on
       F
Put a t-shirt on
        Bb           C            F
Do me wrong, do me wrong, do me wrong

Bridge:
      Bb                 F
Does holy water make you pure?
      Bb                         F
Submerged your vision's just obscured
 Bb                F
You're a lot like me
Bb            F
In up to our knees
Bb             F              C
In over your chest is way too deep

Chorus:
       F               Bb       C
Put a wetsuit on, come on, come on
           F                  Bb        C
Grow your hair out long, come on, come on
       F
Put a t-shirt on
        Bb           C            F
Do me wrong, do me wrong, do me wrong


       F               Bb       C
Put a wetsuit on, come on, come on
           F                  Bb        C
Grow your hair out long, come on, come on
       F
Put a t-shirt on
        Bb           C            F
Do me wrong, do me wrong, do me wrong

  1. Sarah plays ukulele not tragedies

    Great song! I found that the -3 chords were by far easiest to play; however, instead of then putting a capo on fret 3, I put one on fret 2, because it just sounds the most authentic to me. It was a little deeper than fret 3, and suited my voice better. I use a concert ukulele, and highly suggest learning to play this song!

  2. Ahhh I love this song! Thanks so much for posting 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.
