Hey Ya! So, this is my first tab, and I was surprised to have not seen this onr around 
the website so I thought I'd put it up. Honestly, I figured it out by watching an episode 
of Scrubs where Ted is playing this song in the Bahamas! :P

 E             A
My baby don't mess around
Because she loves me so
            B            C#m
And this I know for sure

E              A
But does she really wanna
But can't stand to see me
       B          C#m
Walk out the door

E                A
I can't stand to fight the feeling
'Cause the thought alone
           B            C#m
Is killing me right now

E                A
I thank god for mom and dad
For sticking two together
           B            C#m
'Cause we don't know how

E   A     B   C#m
Hey ya... Hey ya    x2

You think you got it
Oh you think you got it
But got it just don't get it
              B            C#m
Till there's nothing at all

We get together
Oh we get together
But separate's always better
             B                C#m
When there's feelings involved

If what they say that
Nothing is forever
B                 C#m
Then what makes, then what makes, then what makes what makes
Love the exception

E          A
So why oh why oh why oh why oh why oh
