Intro: D (root)

D (root)
I try to always be a gentleman
I try to always be a better friend
Lately Iíve been feeling half a man
like maybe I should be more who I am
A (root)
Maybe I should fuck something up good
   G (root)
Or maybe I should act like someone bad
D (root)
I try to live my life like David does
But something always feels just slightly off

D (root)
Iím young and maybe thatís why days to me
they seem like opportunities to test my reach
Adopt some ugly habits that are bad for me
and treat some others not so equally
A (root)
If I thought I knew me well itís clear as can be
G (root)
that things are gonna change like a hundred degrees
D (root)
If I thought I knew me well itís plain to see
that things are gonna change like a hundred degrees

D
Donít tell my mother
Donít tell my mother
A
Donít tell my mother till I pull myself together
G
Itís undercover
I hope forever
D
Donít tell my mother till I pull myself together
G
I think itís me
but I just need to see
A
if this real or just something that I need
Bm
Donít tell my mother
Donít tell my mother
D
Donít don't tell my mother till I pull myself together

D (root)
Try to always do what people like
And try to be a man that someone might
look up to in a minute when theyíre feeling down
Like maybe I could be somebody that you love
   A
Or maybe Iíll just keep thinking all about me
        G
until I get the proper opportunity that I need
D
Maybe Iíll just keep thinking all of myself
until I find a way to be in love with somebody else
A
Maybe Iíll just keep thinking all about me
        G (STOP)
until I get the proper opportunity that I need


D
Donít tell my mother
Donít tell my mother
A
Donít tell my mother till I pull myself together
G
Itís undercover
I hope forever
D
Donít don't tell my mother till I pull myself together
G
I think itís me
but I just need to see
A
if this real or just something that I need
Bm
Donít tell my mother
Donít tell my mother
D
Donít don't tell my mother till I pull myself together
