Chords:
Transpose:
[Verse 1]
GWell it’s a jungle out there
D A7The year 2018, I didn’t think
C GWe’d still be sorting babies into blue and pink
And all our progress
DWell I wonder what it means
AmThat the only girls clothes that work for me
CTurn out to be boyfriend jeans
[Refrain]
EmWell that’s fine
A7Cause I decline
C GA narrow set of rules that just don’t work
EmCause these red lines
A7They’re not mine
C GAnd if you need me you can find me ironing my shirt
[Pre Chorus]
G BmCause I’m in black tie tonight
EmGet a postcard to my
C GYear 11 self in her year 11 hell
BmSaying everything’s gonna be alright
Em CNo you won’t grow out of it you will find the clothes that fit
[Chorus]
G DAnd the images that fucked ya
EmWere a patriarchal structure
CAnd you never will surrender
GTo a narrow view of gender
DAnd I swear there’ll come a day
A7When you won’t worry what they say
COn the labels, on the doors
GYou will figure out what’s yours
Em C G Em C [Verse 2]
D GAnd it’s a bloody nightmare
D A7Tryna fight the spread of bigotry and fear
C GThat’s uniting Piers Morg-an and Ger-maine Greer
And all our progress
DYeah I wonder who it’s for
A7When I dared to utter that trans lives matter
CYeah and all I got was a TERF war.
[Refrain]
A7 EmWell that’s fine
A7Cause I decline
C GYour narrow set of rules they just don’t work
EmThese red lines
A7They’re not mine
C And if you need me you can find me ironing my shirt
[Pre Chorus]
G BmCause I’m in black tie tonight
EmGet a postcard to my
C GYear 11 self in her year 11 hell
BmSaying everything’s gonna be alright
Em CNo you won’t grow out of it you will find the clothes that fit
[Chorus]
G DAnd the images that fucked ya
EmWere a patriarchal structure
CAnd you never will surrender
GTo a narrow view of gender
DAnd I swear there’ll come a day
A7When you won’t worry what they say
COn the labels, on the doors
GYou will figure out what’s yours
D A7You will figure out what’s yours
CAnd that it’s got
Gm Em A7Nothing to do with fitting neatly in a box
CThat was constructed to make it seem
BmLike people come in just two teams
Em GAnd anything that’s in between ain’t good enough
D CAnd you will love
GAnd you’ll be loved
[Pre Chorus]
G BmAnd you’re in black tie tonight
EmGet a postcard to my
C GYear 11 self in her year 11 hell
BmDarling everything’s gonna be alright

[Final Chorus]
G DAnd the images that fucked ya
EmWere a patriarchal structure
CNo you never will surrender
GTo that narrow view of gender
DAnd there’s folks you’ve yet to meet
But you’re exactly up their street
A7 CAnd they’ve been waiting just as long
GTo hear someone sing this song
DAnd better days are on their way
EmWhen it won’t matter what they say
COn the labels, on the doors
GYou will figure out what’s yours
Em
C D EmAnd girl you’re gonna be so happy
C D GAnd girl you’re gonna be just fine
C D EmAnd girl you’re gonna be so happy
EmDown the line
CDown the line
D7 G Em C G Em (repeat to fade)
