What a Good Boy- Barenaked Ladies
[G]When I was b[D]orn, they looked at me and s[C]aid
What a good boy, what a smart boy, what a strong boy
[G]And when you were b[D]orn, they looked at you and s[C]aid
What a good girl, what a smart girl, what a pretty girl
[G]We've got these [D]chains that hang around our ne[C]cks
People want to strangle us with them before we take our first breath
[G]Afraid of c[D]hange, afraid of staying the s[C]ame
When temptation calls, we just look away
 
Chorus:
[G]This name is the h[D]airshirt I wear
And this hai[C]rshirt is woven from your brown hair
[G]This song is the c[D]ross that I bear
Bear wit[C]h me, Bear with me, Bear with me
Be with me tonight[G] [D] [C]
I know that it isn't rig[G]ht [D] [C]  
But be with me tonight
 
[G]I go to [D]school, I write ex[C]ams
If I pass, If I fail, If I drop out, does anyone give a damn?
[G]And if they [D]do, they'll soon for[C]get
'Cause it won't take much for me to show that my life ain't over yet
[G]I wake up [D]scared, I wake up str[C]ange
I wake up wondering if anything in my life is ever gonna change
[G]I wake up [D]scared, I wake up str[C]ange
And everything around me stays the same
 
[Chorus]
 
[G]I couldn't tell [D]you, that I was wr[C]ong
Chickened out, grabbed a pen and paper, sat down and I wrote this song
[G]I couldn't tell [D]you, you were ri[C]ght
So instead I looked in the mirror, watched TV, laid awake all night
[G]We've got these [D]chains that hang around our ne[C]cks
People want to strangle us with them before we take our first breath
[G]Afraid of c[D]hange, afraid of staying the s[C]ame
When temptation calls . . .
 
[Chorus and repeat first verse]
