INTRO:
Listen to the song for the rhythm, I did my best to mark out the strumming pattern

This pattern is used for all of the verses. Often on the second C#m7 they throw the up to fret 7 for the last two strums. A* C#m7 A* C#m7 A is for angry, which is what you are at me A* C#m7 G* Bm7 A is for adult, which is what I'll never be A* C#m7 A* C#m7 A is for applesauce, my favorite meal A* C#m7 G* Bm7 A is for Adam, which is how I sometimes feel; G* Bm7 E Like I'm the only man on Earth, and I've forgotten what that's worth A is for Arthur, he's a lovable drunk A M & Azing, like Thelonius Monk A is for argument, A is for apparent A is for antagonism that's not even there and it's just you begging for attention or something I won't even mention CHORUS: D E(7) A A7 And I don't even know why you keep on trying D E(7) A A7 Like I don't even know why I keep on lying D Bm G F#m There are millions of people in worlds of their own D A E And two of them can't let go A is for algebra, I learned it in school A is what Fonzie said, 'cause he was very cool A is for adversary, A is for affection A's for arousal, you are giving me an erection C'mon I'm trying to show affection for longer than a half an hour [Chorus] BRIDGE: (I'm not totally sure on this part, but it's the best I could do) Gm F Dm Gm Cm Bb Gm Cm Dm Gm F I met a woman I used to know Dm Gm Long before you, long ago Cm Bb All I could say, after hello Gm Cm Dm Was "are you still single?" A is for attitude I can't help but wield A is for arrogance; emotional shield A is for acting, A is for abhorrently A is for asshole, which is what I am, how rude of me. I owe you an apology I'm sorry [Chorus] Then it repeats the intro riff for a while. Enjoy!
