WHAT A GOOD BOY  Barenaked Ladies

[G]When I was b[D]orn, they looked at me and s[C]aid
What a good boy, what a smart boy, what a strong boy
[G]And when you[D] were born, they looked at y[C]ou and said
What a good girl, what a smart girl, what a pretty girl
We've got these chains that hang around our necks
People want to strangle us with them before we take our first breath
Afraid of change, afraid of staying the same
When temptation calls, we just look away
CHORUS:
     T[G]his name is the hairs[D]hirt I wear
     And this h[C]airshirt is woven from your brown hair
     T[G]his song is the c[D]ross that I bear
     Bear it w[C]ith me, Bear with me, Bear with me
G D C (open) C
Be with me tonight
G D C (open) C
I know that it isn't right
But be with me tonight
I go to school, I write exams
If I pass, If I fail, If I drop out, does anyone give a damn?
And if they do, they'll soon forget
'Cause it won't take much for me to show that my life ain't over yet
I wake up scared, I wake up strange
I wake up wondering if anything in my life is ever gonna change
I wake up scared, I wake up strange
And everything around me stays the same
CHORUS
I couldn't tell you, that I was wrong
Chickened out, grabbed a pen and paper, sat down and I wrote this song
I couldn't tell you, you were right
So instead I looked in the mirror, watched TV, layed awake all night
We've got these chains that hang around our necks
Perople want to strangle us with them before we take our first breath
Afraid of change, afraid of staying the same
When temptation calls . . .
CHORUS
REPEAT FIRST VERSE
