(Before first verse, during the “Ooohs”)
D       G       Bm      A

Verse 1:
D
Pop music 101
Some simple instructions

G
For a good first impression
Now let’s start with a first one:

Bm
A minor chord, tensions grow;
Fade in the bass like so;

G
Now with momentum go “stop”
And bring the beat back

D
It’s called Four-on-the-floor
A beat you can’t ignore

G
I’ll bring sexy back once more [“yeah!”]
They’ll love that [“yeah!”] fo’ sho’!

Bm
The chords are 1-4-6-4
Now I’m talkin familiar

G
Harmony in thirds, not fourths
Will take you into the pre-chorus

Pre-chorus:
Bm
Real quick now, don’t you bore us

A
Hurry up and get to the chorus!

G
Dumb down, they won’t ignore us

Chorus:
                G
Get to the floor!

          Bm              A                G
And here’s some words you should know:

          D             A          G
Like “DJ never let me go”

           Bm                A           G
"pour shots", and then I’ll "lose control"!

           D            A
Or “baby baby baby baby baby”

G               A
How about one more last word like

G                 Bm   A
"Hey girl, we’ve only got tonight"?

G                  A
Some things just go together like:

G                                Bm           A
"higher", "desire" and "fire;" "higher", "desire" and "fire"


Verse 2:
D
Guitar and strings like these
To sound like Black Eyed Peas

G
This one’s a filtered swing
This one’s a legend key

Bm
Hipster music on cassette
But you probably don’t know that yet

G
808’s-… [“hey! ho!”] Hell yeah!

D
Heartfelt pop anthems
From Mumford and his Sons

G
Gang vocals here we come

Bm
“I…
Will…

A
Always wait”
[wobble bass]

Pre-chorus

'Kay, slow down…
Take it to the chorus!

Chorus

Bridge:
D
I can pitch and shift my voice if I want

G
I can pitch and shift my voice if I want

Bm
I can pitch and shift my voice if I want

A
I can make my voice low

D
The bridge is
The part when
You bring in
A rapper friend. [“Sup?”]

G
You simplify, you slow the beat
Abbreviate, feature defeat

Bm
Quick now, fill in the gaps. [“Okay!!”]
Right up and down, eliminate that which you

A
Really would rap an’
Give them a classic like “Get-get-get-get…”

Chorus

[random dance music and beat-boxing weirdness]

And it's not "this one's a filtered swing." It's "this one's a filter sweep."
