I’m Not A Juvenile Delinquent
1956 release by Doo Wop band Frankie Lymon And The Teenagers with Frankie
Lymon aged just 14 years old. Tab by bass 50611. This is how I would play 
It on stage with a simpler version that follows the melody.
Hope you like it.  Comments at bass254@btinternet.com

I'm not a juvenile delinquent
No-no-no-no-no-no-no-no
No-no-no-no-no-no-no-no
No-no-no, I'm not a juvenile delinquent
Do the things that's right
And you'll do nothing wrong
Life will be so nice, you'll be in paradise
I know, because I'm not a juvenile delinquent

But listen boys and girls
You need not be blue
And life is what you make of it
It all depends on you
I know, because I'm not a juvenile delinquent

It's easy to be good, it's hard to be bad
Stay out of trouble, and you be glad
Take this tip from me, and you will see
How happy you will be
Oh-oh, boys and girls, this is my story
And I add all of my glory
I know, because I'm not a juvenile delinquent

It's easy to be good, it's hard to be bad
Stay out of trouble, and you be glad
Take this tip from me, and you will see
How happy you will be
Oh-oh, boys and girls, this is my story
And I add all of my glory
I know, because I'm not a juvenile delinquent

No-no-no, I'm not a juvenile
No-no-no, I'm not a juvenile
