Intro:
C#m           B
You with your words 
                A
like knives and swords
And weapons that 
you use against me 
C#m      B
You have knocked me 
       A
off my feet again

Got me feeling like a nothing
C#m           B
You with your voice like 
           A
nails on a chalk board
Callin me out when I'm wounded
C#m B              A
You picking on the weaker man


Refrain 1:
B
  Well you can take me down 
E               A      B
  with just one single blow
    A
But you don't know
what you don't know


Chorus 1:
E       B       C#m
Someday I'll be living 
             A
in a big old city 
    E          B
And all you're ever 
            A
gonna be is mean
E       B       C#m
Someday I'll be big 
                    A
enough so you can't hit me 
    E          B
And all you're ever 
            A
gonna be is mean
                    E-- D-E E -B/Eb
Why you gotta be so mean?


Verse 2:
C#m                                
You with your 
B
switching sides and
     A
Your wild fire lies 
and your humiliation
C#m      B              A                                                    
You have pointed out my flaws again
        (hold)                      
As if I don't already see them
C#m            B                         
   I walk with my head down
          A                                 
trying to block you out 
cause I never impress you
C#m    B           A                                                         
I just wanna feel okay again


Refrain 2:
B                                    
  I bet you got pushed around
E          A        B                                     
  Somebody made you cold
  
But the cycle ends right now cause
    A
You can't lead me down that road
                        (hold)                                       
And you don't know what you don't know


Chorus 2:
E       B       C#m
Someday I'll be living 
             A
in a big old city 
    E          B
And all you're ever 
            A
gonna be is mean
E       B       C#m
Someday I'll be big 
                    A
enough so you can't hit me 
    E          B
And all you're ever 
            A
gonna be is mean
                    E    D E--B
Why you gotta be so mean?


Guitar Solo: A--B-A--


Bridge:
            B
And I can't see you years 
from now in a bar
E                A        B
  Talking over a football game
With that same big loud opinion
   E         A    B
But no one's listening
Washed up and ranting about the 
C#m(hold) B(hold) A(hold) 
same old  bitter  things
B
Drunk and grumbling all 
          C#m B     A
about how I   can't sing
                   E   B C#m
But all you are is mean
A              E
All you are is mean and a
B          C#m
liar and pathetic
     A                E
And alone in life and mean
    B        C#m      A
and mean and mean and mean


Chorus 3:
E(hold)
Someday I'll be living 
in a big old city 
And all you're ever 
gonna be is mean yeah
E       B       C#m
Someday I'll be big 
                    A
enough so you can't hit me 
    E          B
And all you're ever 
            A
gonna be is mean
Why you gotta be so mean?


Chorus 4:
E       B       C#m
Someday I'll be living 
             A
in a big old city 
    E          B
And all you're ever 
            A
gonna be is mean
E       B       C#m
Someday I'll be big 
                    A
enough so you can't hit me 
    E(hold)    B(hold)
And all you're ever 
            A(hold)
gonna be is mean
                    E(hold)
Why you gotta be so mean?
