A Little Less 16 Candles A Little More Touch Me

D
I confess, I messed up
G                                  Bm           G
Dropping “I’m sorry’s” like you’re still around
D
And I know you dressed up
G                     Bm             G
Said “hey kid, you’ll never live this down”

D                            G
cause you’re just the girl all the boys want to dance with
Bm                         G
And I’m just the boy who’s had too many chances

Em                      Bm
I’m sleeping on your folk’s porch again, dreaming
G                          G
She said, she said, she said, “Why don’t you just drop dead?”

D                 G
I don’t blame you for being you
Bm                         G
But you can’t blame me for hating it
D
So say, what are you waiting for?
G
Kiss her! Kiss her!
Bm                           G
I set my clocks early ’cause I know I’m always late

D                        G
Write me off, give up on me
Bm         G
‘Cause darling what did you expect
D
I’m just off a lost cause
G                       Bm           G
A long shot, don’t even take this bet

D                           G
You can make all the moves, you can aim all the spotlights
Bm                        G
Get all the sighs and the moans just right

Em                          Bm
I’m sleeping on your folk’s porch again, dreaming
G                         G
She said, she said, she said, “Why don’t you just drop dead?”

D                 G
I don’t blame you for being you
Bm                         G
But you can’t blame me for hating it
D
So say, what are you waiting for?
G
Kiss her! Kiss her!
Bm                           G
I set my clocks early ’cause I know I’m always late

D       G       Bm
I’m just always (always) on
G
You said you’d keep me honest
D          G       Bm
Always on (always) on
G
But I won’t call you on it
D       Bm     G
Always (always on)

Chorus x 2 [End on D]
