Chorus
Am                                Fmaj7
Pay your surgeon very well to break the spell of aging
    Am                               Fmaj7
Celebrity skin is this your chin or is that war your waging

Born and raised by those who praise, control the population
         Am                           Fmaj7
Well everybody’s been there and I don’t mean on vacation
Am                  Fmaj7       Am                   Fmaj7
