(D D)                   (D D)
Say it in the street, that's a knock-out
(D D) (D D)
But you say it in a Tweet, that's a cop-out
(G G) (G G)
And I'm just like, "Hey, are you okay?"
(D D) (D D)
Sunshine on the street at the parade
(D D) (D D)
But you would rather be in the dark age
(G G) (G G)
Just makin' that sign must've taken all night
(D D) (D D)
You just need to take several seats and then try to restore the peace
(D D) (D D) (G G)
And control your urges to scream about all the people you hate
(D D)
'Cause shade never made anybody less gay
(D D) (D D) (D D)
And we see you over there on the internet
(G G) (G G) (G G)
Comparing all the girls who are killing it
(D D)
But we figured you out
(D D) (G G)
We all know now we all got crowns
(G G)
You need to calm down
(D D)
Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
(D D)
You need to calm down
(G G)
You're being too loud
(G G) (D D)
And I'm just like oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
(D D)
You need to just stop
(G G) (G G)
Like can you just not step on our gowns?
(D D)
You need to calm down

I am not really sure. other YouTubers where I got this from made it really complicated. I just found what I am comfortable with. I just do one down strum for verse and bridge. For the chorus, I just play one down stum for each oh-ho and 4-8 down strums for everything else (depends on the break in between lyrics) but "you need to calm down' i do one single down strum. sorry for this being lone it is just difficult to explain.

-bridge/verse: D oh-oh: one D for each one Chorus: dddD or dddDdddD last lyric: D
