How To Play

VERSE 1
N.C.
Whooooooo
D
It was so nice throwing big parties
D
Jump into the pool from the balcony
D                                    G
Everyone swimming in a champagne sea  (whooooo)
D
And there are no rules when you show up here
D
Bass beat rattling the chandelier
D                                    G
Feeling so Gatsby for that whole year
 
 
PRE CHORUS
   Em                           A
So why'd you have to rain on my parade?
               Em                    A
I'm shaking my head, I'm locking the gates
 
 
CHORUS
                          D    Bm      G  A
This is why we can't have nice things, dar-ling
D
Because you break them
 Bm                G
I had to take them awaayayayay
A                         D    Bm      G A
This is why we can't have nice things, ho-ney
D                             Bm                            G
Did you think I wouldn't hear all the things you said about meeEeEeeEeEe?
A                         N.C.
This is why we can't have nice things

VERSE 2
D
It was so nice being friends again
D
There I was, giving you a second chance
D                                                     G
But then you stabbed in the back while shaking my hand
D
And therein lies the issue
D
Friends don't try to trick you
D
Get you on the phone and mind-twist you
D                                       G
And so I took an axe to a mended fence
 
 
PRE CHORUS
        Em                                 A
But I'm not the only friend you've lost lately
   Em                  A
If only you weren't so shady

 Bm                G
I had to take them awaayayayay
A                         D    Bm      G A
This is why we can't have nice things, ho-ney
D                             Bm                            G

D                    Bm7
Here's a toast to my real friends
G                         A
They don't care about that he-said-she-said
D                Bm7
And here's to my baby
G                         A

And here's to you
      G                             A
