F |Dm |F |Db |

How would you feel if I turned on the bath

Bb |C |Db | |

Ducked your head under and started to laugh?

F |Dm |F |Db

What would you do if I shut you outside

To stand in the rain and catch cold so you die--ie--ied?

I'm the schoo--oo--ool bully. The cla--ass roo-oom cheat.

We're on our own, cousin

Ab7 Db

All alone, cousin

G7sus4 C

Let's think of a game to play

G7 C

Now the grown-ups have all gone away

F#7sus4 B

You won't be much fun being blind, deaf and dumb

F#7 B

But I've no one to play with today.

F7sus4 Bb

Do you know how to play hide-and-seek?

F7 Bb

To find me it would take you a week

E7sus4 A

But tied to that chair you won't go anywhere

E7 A

There's a lot I can do with a freak


[repeat CHORUS]

Maybe a cigarette burn on your arm

Would change your expression to one of alarm.

I'll drag you around by a lock of your hair

Or give you a push at the top of the sta-aa-airs.

I'm the scho--oo--ool bully. The cla--asro-oom cheat.

The na--asti--iest playfriend you ev----er could meet.

I'll put gla--ass in your dinner and spi--ikes in your seat.


[repeat INTRO]
