C*                      Bb*                     Dm*
And girls act too much, And boys act too tough, Enough is enough

We're on the minds of other men I know she was

            C*                       Bb*
I said just take it or leave it, And take it or leave it
     Dm
And take it or leave it, And take it or leave it
        C*                         Bb*

Boys act too much, Girls act too tough, Enough is enough.

Well on the minds of other girls I know he was.

            C*                        Bb*
