(Flipside of the 1973 single GOODBYE YELLOW BRICK ROAD)
 
INTRO
D
 
VERSE 1
G                   C
I was a boy I had a lot of fun
  F                         C
I lived by the sea, I was a fisherman's son
   Am               Dm
My mother she was a fisherman's wife
        G                            C
She was scrubbing floors most of her life
 
CHORUS
          F     C
They said screw you
  F                    C
I ain't got nothing to lose
        F
I could paper a matchbox
         G       C
With the money I use
F     C
Screw you
  F                    C
I ain't got nothing to lose
        F
I could paper a matchbox
         G       C
With the money I use
 
VERSE 2
       G                       C
At the school I attended I got into fights
      F                       C
I was beaten in an alley on a cold winter night
    Am                          Dm
The teachers cared less for the blood in our veins
         G                                  C
They got most of their thrills out of using a cane
 
CHORUS
          F     C
They said screw you
F                   C
Oh you bloody young fools
        F
I could get more sense
           G                 C
Out of the back end of a mule
F     C
Screw you
F                   C
Oh you bloody young fools
        F
I could get more sense
           G                 C
Out of the back end of a mule
 
BRIDGE
       Am
So you see there's man who get paid for being slaves
    F
And men who get paid for being free
            G
And there's men behind bars who pray for the light
    C
And men in the suburbs who pray for the night
            Am
And they're all trying to climb to the top of the mine
    F               D
And all of them say most of the way
F     C
Screw you
 
[Sax Solo]
C   F   C   F   G   C
C   F   C   F   G   C
 
VERSE 3
  G                       C
I worked in the mill from seven till nine
F                       C
Tears in my eyes nearly drove me half-blind
Am                        Dm
Trying to make wages that weren't even there
       G                                           C
Taking hell from a foreman with the build of a bear
 
CHORUS
        F     C
He said screw you
F                         C
This is all you'll ever do
         F                  G            C
It's the only existence for someone like you
F     C
Screw you
F                         C
This is all you'll ever do
         F                  G            C
It's the only existence for someone like you
 
OUTRO

Screw you, screw you
F   G   C
F     C    F     C
