VERSE
It's the same as the second part of the intro
But play it one time before every beginning of verses

[C5]And girls lie too much
[A#5]And boys act too tough
[D5]Enough is enough

SECOND GUITAR
[C]Well, on the minds
[A#]Of other men

CHORUS
FIRST GUITAR always the same
SECOND GUITAR
I said, "[C5]Just take it or leave it

[A#5]Oh, just take it or leave it
