I saw this song in tab on OLGA and thought it incredibly difficult. Here is my transcription of it which I hope you find a lot easier!!! This song is one of the easiest I know to play so here goes.. At the beginning it goes A E A D A D E /// /// /// /// /// /// / The words are: I was a young buy that had big plans Now Im just another shitty old man I don't have fun and I hate everything The world owes me so fuck you Glory days don't mean shit to me I drunk/took a six pack of apathy Life's a bitch and so am I The world owes me so fuck you Then the pattern stays the same through the first bit of the chorus but at the point where Billie and Mike sing together: "I had a young and optimistic point of view" F#m D A E //// / //// /// (by the way / means to play the chord) and for you who dont know F# is a bar chord. You play the E-shape on the second fret but lift up your second finger. Then the next verse is the same music wise but the words are: I've decomposed yet my gut's getting fat Oh my god Im turning out like my dad Im always rude I've got a bad attitude The world owes me so fuck you The wifes a nag and the kids fucking up I don't have sex 'cos I can't get it up Im just a grouch sitting on the couch The world owes me so fuck you The world owes me so fuck you. The world owes me so fuck youuuuu and end on a D.
