When I look in the mirror I can't believe what I see

As everything I need is denied me
G G D D Am Am E E
And everything I want is taken away from me

But who do I got to blame? Nobody but me

hum... I have a naïve question...

Do I have to tune the uku half a step down (F#-B-D#-G#) and play the original chords patterns, or should I keep the standard C tuning (GCEA) and transpose the music sheet (using the tool provided by the website) ?

About this song

"The Good Life" is the second single off the second album Pinkerton by Weezer. It came out in 1997. It was rush-released by the record company to try to save the commercially-failing album, but was not successful.
