(enter drums)
[C A# F C] x 2

C                         F              G
Don't you see that people  will like you  for who you
C                         F         G
are  Cause life is like a sitcom, a senior prom
    D                    F
And I'm okay and you're okay, grade A, ten-four
  C                     D             F
Roger, over and out, listen up, check  it out
[ Tab from: ]
C                  F      C       G      C       G
 There's something ugly inside of you, inside of you
          C          F      C       G      C       G
There's a  big empty hole inside of you, inside of you
F                                  C       G      C  G
 There's something creepy crawling on your brain
F                               G
 There's something in you, it's  red white and blue inside of you

[C A# F C] x4

As long as you don't have lots of zits or small tits
Or crooked teeth then you won't be a freak, a wildebeaste
And people won't tape signs on to your back or beat the crap
Out of you or ignore your sorry ass, see

There's something vapid inside of you, inside of you
There's a sweet little robot inside of you, inside of you
So take off that silly moustache
Don't be a baby -- there's a Pete Brady inside of you

[C A# F C] x4 (with "Inside of you"s)

Next, play a palm-muted C for about four bars.  (This is the "Boy, I really
learned a lot today" part.)

C    A#    F        C
One:   You act your age
         A#              F                C
Two: You don't try to be something you're not
           A#       F    C
Three: You find out in advance
What restaurant your mom and dad are going to
And go someplace else

[C A# F C] x3 (with "Go someplace else"s)

[C A# C]

Lead riff -- played intermittently throughout, usually after the chorus
(keyboard transcribed for guitar)
