[Verse 1]
E                                   
I live under a rock with a blacklight
C#m                                  A
I'm a dumb pop star in my own right
E                                                                  C#m  A                 
Started life at age 15, got ahead with fake ID's if you're with me

E
Sold my soul to the man with a handshake
C#m                                           A
Lost control but I don't think it's too late
E                                                            C#m       A
We're dying young on broadcast news, Forever 21 is cool if I make it

[Pre-Chorus]
B
Girls, let's put on all of our clothes

[Chorus]
E
I don't wanna be like american kids
C#m
I am not on drugs and I've never been
A                                  B
I don't care about your party, I belong to nobody

E   
I don't wanna be like american kids
C#m
Drugs don't work like they did for my parents
A                                      B
I'm not down with the new hit, Cause today I just don't get american kids

[Verse 2]
E
Last time I told mom that "I love you"
C#m                                             A
Was the last time I ate food from a drive thru
E                                                                             C#m  A
It never happened like they say, I think my father may be gay but I don't know

E
So I burned all my shit in a bonfire
C#m                                   A
All my teen regrets were a trip wire
E                                                                                C#m A
I should be everything you hate, I should be higher now than space but I'm static

[Pre-Chorus]
B
Boys, aren't even boys anymore

[Chorus]
E
I don't wanna be like american kids
C#m
I am not on drugs and I've never been
A                                  B
I don't care about your party, I belong to nobody

E   
I don't wanna be like american kids
C#m
Drugs don't work like they did for my parents
A                                      B
I'm not down with the new hit, Cause today I just don't get american kids

[Bridge]
E
Liberty isn't cheap and it ain't free
C
I'm a millennial blame it all on me
E
American kids
E
American kids
E
American kids
