[Verse 1]

   E7#9    A7
My friends,
                          E7#9   A7
Feel it's their appointed duty.
                    E7#9     A7
They keep trying to tell me;
                      E7#9   A7
All you want to do is use me.
       E7#9   A7
But my answer,
                         E7#9   A7
Yeah, to all that use me stuff,


[Bridge 1]

    E7#9 (n.c)
Is; I wanna spread the news,
That if it feels this good getting used,
Oh, you just keep on using me, until you use me up,
                 E7#9  A7, E7#9  A7
Until you use me up.

[Verse 2]

   E7#9    A7
My brother,
                          E7#9         A7
Sit me right down, and he talked to me.
   E7#9    A7
He told me;
                                 E7#9       A7
That I ought not to let you just walk on me.
                E7#9       A7
And I'm sure he meant well,
                            E7#9     A7
Yeah, but when our talk was through;


[Bridge 2]

        E7#9 (n.c)
I said; brother, if you only knew,
You'd wish that you were in my shoes.
You just keep on using me, until you use me up,
                 E7#9  A7, E7#9  A7
Until you use me up.

[Verse 3]

    E7#9            A7
Oh, sometimes, yeah,
                           E7#9     A7
It's true; you really do a-buse me.
    E7#9                                   A7
You get me in a crowd of high class people,
                      E7#9       A7
And then you act real rude to me.
        E7#9              A7
But, oh baby, baby, ba-by,
                          E7#9        A7
Baby, when you love me, I can't get e-nough.


[Bridge 3]

E7#9 (n.c)
 I wanna spread the news,
That if it feels this good getting used,
Oh, you just keep on using me, until you use me up,
                 E7#9  A7, E7#9  A7
Until you use me up.

[Coda]

E7#9
 Talking about you using me,
       A7
But it all depends on what you do.
E7#9
 It ain't too bad, the way you're using me,
       A7                                      E7#9  A7
'Cos I sure am using you, to do the things you do,
                            E7#9  A7
Ah ha, to do the things you do.

The chords seem pretty good played together with the song. The riff however isn't quite right.
