Dbm Dbm         B B                     E E
You, with your words like knives and swords
E E
And weapons that you use against me
Dbm Dbm B B A A
You, have knocked me off my feet again
- A A -
Got me feelin' like a nothin'
Dbm Dbm B B E E
You, with your voice like nails on a chalk board
E E
Callin' me out when I'm wounded
Dbm Dbm B B A A
You, pickin' on the weaker man


B B E E B B
Well you can take me down with just one single blow
A A -once
But you don't know, what you don't know...


E E B B Dbm Dbm
Someday I'll be livin' in a big ol' city
E E B B A A
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
E E B B Dbm Dbm
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me
E E B B A A
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
E E
Why you gotta be so mean?


Dbm Dbm B B
You, with your swithching sides and
E E
Your wild fire lies and your humiliation
Dbm Dbm B B A A
You, have pointed out my flaws again
A A
As if I don't already see them
Dbm Dbm B B
I walk with my head down
A A
Tryin' to block you out
A A
'Cause I never impress you
Dbm Dbm B B A A
I just wanna feel okay again


B B
I bet you got pushed around
E E A A B B
Somebody made you cold
- B B - A A
But the cycle ends right now 'cause
A A
You can't lead me down that road
A A
And you don't know what you don't know


E E B B A A
Someday I'll be livin in a big ol' city
E E B B A A
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
E E B B A A
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me
E E B B A A
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
E E B B A A
Why you gotta be so mean?


E E A A

B B
And I can see you years from now in a bar
E E A A B B
Talkin' over a football game
B B
With that same big loud opinion
E E A A B B
But no one's listening
B B
Washed up and ranting about the
Dbm Dbm B B A A
Same old bitter things
B B E E B B A A
Drunk and grumblin' all about how I can't sing
A A E E B B Dbm Dbm
But all you are is mean
A A E E B B Dbm Dbm
All you are is mean...and a liar...and pathetic
A A E E B B Dbm Dbm A A
And alone in life and mean, and mean, and mean, and mean



E E B B A A
But someday I'll be livin in a big ol' city
E E B B A A A A
And all you're ever gonna be is mean, yeah--ah
E E B B Dbm Dbm A A
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me
E E B B A A
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
A A E E
Why you gotta be so...Someday
B B Dbm Dbm A A
I'll be livin in a big ol' city -
E E B B A A
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
E E B B A A
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me
E E B B A A
And all you're ever gonna be is mean
E E
Why you gotta be so mean?
