[Verse 1]
E chordE Ab chordAb
There once was a bittersweet man and they called him ¨lemon boy¨
A chordA Gbm chordGbm
He was growing in my garden and I pulled him out by his hair like a
B chordB
weed
E chordE Ab chordAb
And like weeds do he only came and grew back again
A chordA Gbm chordGbm B chordB
So I figured this time I might as well let him be


[Chorus]
A chordA E chordE Ab chordAb C#m chordC#m B chordB
Lemon Boy and me started to get along together
A chordA E chordE Ab chordAb C#m chordC#m B chordB
I’d help him plant his seeds and we mowed the lawn in bad weather
A chordA E chordE Ab chordAb C#m chordC#m B chordB A chordA
It’s actually pretty easy being nice to a bitter boy like him
B chordB* E chordE
So I got myself a citrus friend


[Verse 2]
E chordE Ab chordAb
But soon his bittersweet started to rub off on me
A chordA C#m chordC#m B chordB
You’d think smelling like lemon zest would be pretty neat
E chordE Ab chordAb
I found out that my friends are more of the savoury type
A chordA C#m chordC#m B chordB
And they weren’t too keen on compromising with a nice lemon pie


[Chorus]
A chordA E chordE Ab chordAb C#m chordC#m B chordB
Lemon Boy and me started to get along together
A chordA E chordE Ab chordAb C#m chordC#m B chordB
I’d help him plant his seeds and we mowed the lawn in bad weather
A chordA E chordE Ab chordAb C#m chordC#m B chordB A chordA
It’s actually pretty easy being nice to a bitter boy like him
- B chordB- E chordE
So I got myself a citrus friend


[Bridge]

E chordE* G# chordG#*
But what if I run out of fertiliser
A chordA* Am chordAm*
What if the clouds run out of rain
A chordA* B chordB* E chordE*
What if Lemon Boy won't grow no longer
G# chordG#* A chordA*
What if the beaches dry of sugarcane
Am chordAm*
Oh well

E chordE*
The whales start to beach themselves
G# chordG#* A chordA*
The tortoise shells tear away from their spines
Am chordAm* E chordE*
It happens all the time it happens all the time

[Instrumental Break]

G# chordG#* A chordA* Am chordAm*


[Pre-Chorus]
(Soft strumming)
A chordA E chordE G# chordG# C#m chordC#m B chordB
Lemon Boy and I we're gonna live forever
(Build up strumming)
A chordA E chordE G# chordG# C#m chordC#m B chordB
Like Snufkin and Little My we'll get around wherever


[Chorus]
(Intense strumming)
A chordA E chordE G# chordG# C#m chordC#m B chordB
Lemon Boy and I we're gonna live forever
A chordA E chordE G# chordG# C#m chordC#m B chordB
Like Snufkin and Little My we'll get around wherever
A chordA E chordE G# chordG# C#m chordC#m B chordB A chordA
It's actually pretty easy being nice to a bitter boy like him



[Outro]
B chordB A chordA
´Cause weŕe the bitterest boys in town
B chordB A chordA
We’re the bitterest guys around
B chordB* E chordE*
And I got myself a citrus friend

i dont think ab works with the song...it makes it sound kinda funky. Does anyone know a different chord that might go with this??

I agree with CatsLoveHats, the chords arent aligned right on some lines and its difficult to play along to

-4 is the easiest, just put a capo on the 4th fret if you want to stay in the same key
