"Walking Contradiction"
B B(PM)...
[E]Do as l [D]say and [A]not as l[E] do
[E]because the shit[D]'s so thick you [A]can't run away.
[E]I beg to differ [D]and on t[A]he contr[E]ary,
[E]l agree with eve[D]ry word that you[A] say.
[E]Talk is cheap an[D]d lies a[A]re expen[E]sive,
[E]My wallet's fat [D]and so i[A]s my head.
[E]Hit and run and [D]then l'l[A]l hit yo[E]u again,
[E]I'm a sm[D]art-ass but l'm [A]playing dumb.
[E] [D] [B] [E] [D] [B] 
[E]NO WORDS[D] [A] [E] [E] [D] [A]
[E]Standard[D]s set and broken[A] all the[E] time,
[E]Control [D]the chao[A]s from behind a gun.
[E]Call it as l see[D] it even[A] if[E]
[E]I was born deaf,[D] blind a[A]nd dumb.
[E]Losers w[D]inning b[A]ig on th[E]e lottery,
[E]Rehab re[D]jects st[A]ill sniffing glue.
[E]Constant[D] refutat[A]ion with[E] myself,
[E]I'm a vi[D]ctim of [A]a catch-22.
[E]I have n[D]o belief[B].
[E]But I be[D]lieve, I[B]'m a wal[E]king con[DA]tradicti[E]on.
[E]And, l ain't got[D] no righ[A]t.

Intro-- E(PM) high E(7th fret)
[A]Do as [D]I say [G]not as [A]I do because
[A]The shit's so [D]deep you [G]can't run [A]away.
[A]I beg to [D]differ [G]on the [A]contrary,
[A]I agree with [D]every [G]word that you [A]say.
[A]Talk is [D]cheap but [G]lies are [A]expensive,
[A]My wallets [D]fat and [G]so is my [A]head.
[A]Hit and [D]run and [G]then I'll hit [A]you again
[A]I'm a smart ass [D]but [G]I'm playing [A]dumb.
[A]Standards [D]set and [G]broken [A]all the time
[A]Control the [D]chaos [G]behind the [A]gun.
[A]Call it [D]as I [G]see it [A]even if
[A]I was [D]born [G]deaf, blind, and [A]dumb.
[A]Losers [D]winning [G]big on the [A]lottery,
[A]Rehab [D]rejects [G]still sniffing [A]glue.
[A]Constant [D]refuta[G]tion [A]with myself,
[A]I'm a victim [D]of [G]catch [A]22.
[D] [G] [A] Well, I have no belief
[D] [G] [A] But I believe
[D] [G] [A] I'm a walking contradiction
[D] [G] [A] And I ain't got no right.
