Verse

G
I learned a lot today, not sure if I'll get laid or
D
Not sure if I'll fail or pass, kissed every girl in class
G
Everybody would waste it all, to have a summer that they could call,
D
A memory that's full of fun, fucked up when it's all done

Chorus

G                             C 
On and on, reckless abandon, Something's wrong, this is gonna shock them
Em         D          
Nothing to hold on to, 
C
We'll use this song lead you on.
Em                  D
And break the truth with more bad news
C
We left a scar, size extra large

Verse

G
Sip a drink of the alcohol, end up kneeling in bathroom stalls 
D
Eyes are red and my movements slow, too high got vertigo
G
He took a shit in the bathroom tub, and fed the dog the brownie drugs
D
Tried hard to not get caught, he fucked a chick in a parking lot

Verse

G
Break a window and bust a wall, making fun of your friends mom

Turn the music up way too loud, Charge the pizza to the house

Everybody would waste it all, to have a summer that they could call
D
Memory that's full of fun, fucked up when it's all done

That's it. If changing chords during the riff is too tough for you, you can mute every note that
has your finger on 2 in order to make easier chord shapes and it sounds fine. Better, arguably, if you want a 
more punk-rock sound. If you don't care about playing it in the right key and just want to play the song, 
don't worry about the capo. It does sound better with one, though. Have fun!
