Graham Parker Problem Child Lyrics

Last updated:

Intro    Bass run of d c#  b a  a  b  then
E B A B / E B A B

The fill ( G#m F#m A B E) can just be played over the B
but these would probably be the chords if they were there

E B A G#m F#m A B E
How fast does the time go?
E B A G#m F#m A B G#m
How high does the wind blow?
G#m F#m A B
You don't know do ya ain't paid attention
G#m F#m A B
You can't think, can ya, increase the tension
A B E
And you're running out to hide, cause you

CHORUS
B A B E
A problem child, you ain't got any sense
B A B E
A problem child, you can't find no defence
G#m A G#m A
Cause even though your heart is full of problems
B A B E
Nobody sees them, no-one sees them baby but you and me
E B A B E B A B
ooh yeah baby but you and me

How much does your life mean?
(B at 14)
How dumb do the birds seem?
Flying round, aimlessly in circles,
Just like you, playing with your sad curls
and tears rollin down your face, cause you

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE
Dm A
Everything you try to do gets in somebody's way
B A A B
Like a part that just don't work you're useless so they say
Dm A
Everything you wear don't fit your dreams are made of grey
B A B A
Stay with them and hope they'll turn to something someday
B A B A B
Don't get wild they've only got you filed down as
A E
A problem child,

CHORUS plus variations (just like me and you)
