b*stard

The old b*stard left his ties and his suit
A brown box, mothballs and bowlin' shoes
In his opinion so you'd never have to choose
Pretty soon, you'll be an old b*stard too

You get smaller as the world gets big
The more you know you know you donít know shit
The wiz bigíll never fit you like the wiz kid did

Chorus:
So why you gotta act like you know when you donít know?
Itís okay if you donít know everything
Why you gotta act like you know when you donít know?
Itís okay if you donít know everything

Close you ears close your eyes young man
Youíve seen and heard all an old man can
Spread the facts on the floor like a fan
Rub away the ones that make you feel bad

Here today growiní old too fast
You canít wait to grow up so they can kiss your ass
They came to stop you got the last kid here
For the last kid hereís your last

Chorus:
So why you gotta act like you know when you donít know?
Itís okay if you donít know everything
Why you gotta act like you know when you donít know?
Itís okay if you donít know everything

Tears land on the hand on the chest
The old b*stard had a pair at demarest

You got smaller while the world got big
The more we knew we knew we didnít know shit
The wiz man never fit like the wiz kid did

Chorus:
Why you gotta act like you know when you donít know?
Itís okay if you donít know everything
Why you gotta act like you know when you donít know?
Itís okay if you donít know everything

I'm naturally very curious as to where you got a copy of the song... the excerpt sounds very cool! Thanks for the preview, it's the first I've heard of the song.

Great job there Jake! I'd started work on the lyrics, but got lost.
Sounds like a fun piano ditty to play. Cheers for the midi!

Here's the chords (and updated lyrics, thanks to IWANTMYMONEY).

The rhythms are tricky... you'll have to figure those out for yourselves.

Em

Em                       D            G
The old bastard left his ties and his suit
D       G    D             G   C         D
A brown box, mothballs and bowling shoes
Em                       D             G
and his opinion so you'd never have to choose
D      G            D         G        C
Pretty soon, you'll be an old bastard too
A                           
You get smaller while the world gets big
C
The more you know you know you donít know shit
A                                            C
The whiz maníll never fit you like the whiz kid did

G                D/F#         Em            D     C
So why you gotta act like you know when you donít know?
A         C
Itís okay if you donít know everything
G             D/F#         Em            D     C
Why you gotta act like you know when you donít know?
A        C
Itís okay if you donít know everything


Close your eyes close your ears young man
Youíve seen and heard all an old man can
Spread the facts on the floor like a fan
throw away the ones that make you feel bad

Kids today gettiní old too fast
they can't wait to grow up so they can get some ass
They get nostalgic about the last ten years
before the last ten years have passed

why you gotta act like you know when you donít know?
Itís okay if you donít know everything
Why you gotta act like you know when you donít know?
Itís okay if you donít know everything

Solo:

Em   D   C
Am   Cmaj7
Em   D   C
Am   Cmaj7
Em   D   C
Am   Cmaj7
Am   Cmaj7 (repeat)

Tears land on a hand on the chest
The old bastard had a paradigm arrest

You got smaller and the world got big
The more you knew we knew we didnít know shit
The whiz man never fit him the whiz kid did

Why you gotta act like you know when you donít know?
cause Itís okay if you donít know everything
Why you gotta act like you know when you donít know?
Itís okay if you donít know everything

outro:

G C A C (repeat)
