Lyrics & Music

Intro-
E, A, G, C (x4)

Verse Intro-
E, A, G, C (x2)

Verse-

E    A     G
Load up on guns
C          E
Bring your friends
     A      G
It's fun to lose
    C     E
And to pretend
      A      G
She's overboard
C         E
Myself assured
  A      G      C     E
I know I know a dirty word
E      A      G      C
Hello, hello, hello, how low (x4)


Chorus-

E
With the lights out
A         G
It's less dangerous
C        E
Here we are now
A       G
Entertain us
C      E
I feel stupid
A       G
And contagious
C        E
Here we are now
A       G
Entertain us
C    E
A milato
A     G
An albino
C     E
A misquito
A     G
My libido
C
Yeah

              Hey!

And that's it. Use the same chords and strumming for each chorus and verse, and as for
solo.... well, you can either play the solo like normal(I'll put the tab for the solo
or you can skip it. I find if you're playing alone, the chorus sounds awkward like 
because it goes from loud chorus to a somewhat empty/quiet solo feeling, so personally I
it. However, if you have a band or something, it may sound better with the solo.

Also, for the part at the end where he goes a denial over and over, just do the chorus.


Solo- (tabbed as if you still have the capo on)
