From: Oystreck 
Subject: g/green_day/platypus.crd

Band: Green Day
Song: Platypus (I Hate You)
Album: Nimrod, track 8, Reprise Records, 1997

WARNING!!!: If played properly, this song can really hurt your wrist,elbow,
shoulder and hand. This song makes Basket Case seem like a slow waltz.

I minimally censored some of the lyrics,
even though we all know what they are.

Standard tuning


B:  7-9-9-*-*-*              G:  3-5-5-*-*-*
F#: 2-4-4-*-*-*              A:  5-7-7-*-*-*
E:  *-7-9-9-*-*              A#: 6-8-8-*-*-*

Almost the entire song is played with up and
down super-strumming, unless otherwise noted

Intro:    B     G  F#           x4

Pre-verse:    B    A    E    B    B    A    E    A A A# B


B           A         E         B
   Your rise and fall, back up against the wall

B             A                E                B
   What goes around is coming back and haunting you

B           A        E                B
   It's time to quit, cause you ain't worth the sh*t

B           A            E           B
   Under my shoes or the piss on the ground

Chorus: (down strumming, then up-down, then down)

   No one loves you and you know it 

                                 E               B
   Don't pretend that you enjoy it, or you don't care!

   A                                                               A#
   Cause now I wouldn't lie or tell you all the things you want to hear.

                B   A  E
   Cause I hate you!     x4


Verse 2:

   I heard your stick, sucked on that cancer stick
   A throbbing tumor and a radiation high
   Sh*t out of luck, and now your time is up
   It brings me pleasure just to know you're gonna die


Interlude: (play intro part over these lyrics)

   Dick-head, f*ck-fuce, cock-smoking, mother-f*cking,
   Asshole, dirty twat, waste of semen, I hope you die....

Bridge:    A    A#    B

Verse 3:

   Red eye, code blue, I'd like to strangle you
   And watch your eyes bulge right out of your skull
   When you go down, head first into the ground
   I'll stand above you just to piss on your grave


Outro: just play the pre-verse once
