[Verse 1] (Bm, Em, D, Cm)
Baby got our head down

Looking for a stranger
Looking for a stranger to love
Bm
You got to touch your eyes and crush your tears
Bm
You gotta let go, come with me
E
Looking for a stranger

Looking for a stranger to love

[Chorus] (Bm, D, A, G, Em)

   You say you want it, but you can't get it in
Bm          D   A    Em
   You got yourself a bad habit
Bm     D           A          G
   Oh look at you, you walking up and down a pole
Bm         D      A       Em
   I say breathe, stay with me
Bm        D            A        G
   You say you want it, but you can't get it in
Bm        D        A     Em
   You got yourself a bad habit
Bm        D       A              G

   You know I wish I had it all

Lyrics:

Baby got our head down
Baby tryna stand down in the crowd
Looking for a stranger
Looking for a stranger to love
You got to touch your eyes and crush your tears
You gotta let go, come with me
Looking for a stranger
Looking for a stranger to love

You say you want it, but
You can't get it in
You got yourself a bad habit
Oh look at you, walking up and down a pole
I say breathe, stay with me
You say you want it, but
You can't get it in
You got yourself a bad habit
Oh look at you, walking up and down a pole
I say breathe
Oh man, oh man, oh man
You know I wish I had it all
You know I wish I had it all

You say you want it, but
You can't get it in
You got yourself a bad habit
Oh look at you walking up and down the hall
I say breathe
Oh man, oh man, oh man

You cant get it, it's a
a bad habit, such a
A bad habit such a bad bad habit
it's a, a bad habit

Really good, but I definitely think capo on 1 is required :)
