C/ B7/ Em/ G/ 
C/ B7/Em/ Em


Vs1:
C/        B7/                Em/          G/                                 C/
I was watching the parade, the boys had formed a new brigade

                  B7/                Em/ Em
i thought i'd join them on whim

C/            B7/                    Em/                          G/               C/
A big old man met me out front and looked me over with a grunt,

                     B7/                           Em/ Em
Said, "I know you, fag, don't come in."


Pre-Chorus 1
                C--B7/    Am/ Am/  Am/             C  --   B7/     Em/   G/
and I said, "Is  that  right?     Look, I don't want  a        fight,

         Am/        Am/    Am/  Am/             C/ C/  D/ D (break)         
but i'll tell you, man, i think you're out of line"


Vs2:
C/                  B7/                Em/                    G/
The way he glared at me, it made me feel uneasy

C/                     B7                   Em/ Em
I guess he didn't like my tone of voice

C/                      B7/                       Em/                   G/
His clothes and his cologne, they made me feel all queasy

C/                 B7/               Em/ Em
So, i made a proud man's choice

Pre-Chorus 2
                          C -     B7/ Am
and whispered, "step   aside,

                        C --       B7/      Em/ G/
you're messing with the wrong guy.

             Am/   Am/  Am/        Am/        C/ C/ D/D      (break)
if you're wise, man, you'll get outta my eye   sight."  And he said,


Ch 1
  G/               F#sus/     Em/ Em          
"You ain't got nothin on me, son.

            Am/         Am/                 C/                C/
Yeah, I make the rules here and you're just a little queer.

G/                 F#sus/                Em/ Em
You've got a lot of nerve I can see,

                 Am/             Am/                C/                  D/          (C)
Yeah, you think you're tough, but you just can't fool everybody"

C/ B7/ Em/ Em

Vs3:
C/         B7/             Em/                           G/                 C/ 
I smiled as I turned around and walked a couple yards down,

                      B7/                                Em/ Em
Pulled out my phone and called some friends

C/                B7/                    Em/                    G/                    C/
I could still see him looking smug, crossing his arms just like a thug

                 B7/                 Em/ Em
He had no clue what was coming.


Pre Ch2:
              C -----  B7/       Am/ Am/
when my friends showed up,

Am/                    C --- B7/ Em/ G
They'd brought a special   guest,

               Am/ Am/  Am/   Am/   C/ C/    D/ D/  (break)
it was his mama, dressed in her sunday best. She said,


Ch 2:
G/                  F#sus/   Em/   Em
"You ain't got nothin on them, son.

Am/                      Am/          C/                C/
Yeah, i told them about you, you're queer through and through.

G/                 F#sus/                Em/ Em
You've got a lot of nerve i can see

                Am/                Am/          C/                  D/        (G )
Yeah, but shove all your rules, you just can't fool everybody"


Bridge:
G/ G/           A7/   A7/        C/ C/                G/
     "If you're willing to man-up and tell the truth,

G/ G/    G/     A7/             A7/        C/                  C/                  D (4 bars)
    Maybe this nice young band of queers will let you join their group."


Vs4:
C/            B7/                Em/                       G/                       C/
Well, he slowly backed away then made a mad dash for the door,

           B7/              Em/ Em
And in no time reappeared

C/             B7/            Em/                           G/            C/
Wearing a t-shirt that read, "No one knows, I'm a transsexual"

        B7/          Em/Em
And everybody cheered


Pre ch3:
              C--  B7/   Am (break)
Then he hollered, "Wait,

          C ---   B7      Em/ Em/ G/ G
I'm a queer but i'm straight.

            Am/ Am/ Am/ Am/        C /   C/                 D (4 bars) (break)
Will the world understand, can i still me get a hot date?"       Ah, we said,               


Ch 3:
G                    F#sus     Em/ Em
"They ain't got nothin on you, son,

                Am/        Am                 C/            C/
Yeah, the ones who hate you are probably queer, too


G                    F#sus                       Em/ Em
They've got a lot of nerve, you can see,

           Am/           Am                       C/                  C/
But it's got to end soon, cuz they're running out of room

Am/              Am (break)
For haters to breed,

       C/                   D/               (C)
You just can't fool everybody


Outro:
C/ Em/ B7/ Em

              C/                 B7/      Em/ Em
No, you just can't fool everybody,    


C/ B7/ Em/ G
oooooo ooooooo

       C/                  D/         G—C/ G (end on 1)
You just can't fool everybody.

Em/           Em/                                Em/        Em/
  I guess maybe it don’t wanna be seen by me

 It’d be really easy now to be alone

 CH 2
 C / C

 Just think it’d be easy now to be alone

 So, I hope you don’t mind honey

                            G /G / G / G/ 
 Would you go on home


 Bridge
  Em/               D/               G /                     C/
  You say I’m picky about who I choose to hang with

Em/                     D /                    G /                                C/                  
 That’s sure true sometimes but tonight it ain’t the half of it

Em/          D /                      G-   D/          C 
 You don’t know the kind of day I just had


CH 3 
                         G -                D/    Em

 Oh, it’d be so easy now to be alone

       C /                     C/          D/ D 
 So, I hope you don’t mind honey

                          G/ D/   Em/ Em
 Would you go on home

      C/        C/      D/ D
 Oh, let me go honey
