VERSE 1: (No guitar this verse!!)

My friend's got a girlfriend
Man he hates that bitch
He tells me every day
He says "Man I really gotta lose my chick
In the worst kind of way"

VERSE 2:
F
She sits on her ass
Bb
He works his hands to the bone
F                       C
To give her money every payday
F                                 Bb
But she wants more dinero just to stay at home
F                   C       F
Well my friend, you gotta say

CHORUS:
F                            Bb
I won't pay, I won't pay ya, No Way-ay-ay-ay
F                C             F
Na na, why don't you get a job?
F                          Bb
Say no way, say no way-ah, no way-ay-ay-ay
F                C             F
Na na, why don't you get a job?

VERSE 3:
F                              Bb
I guess all his money, well it isn't enough
F                              C
To keep her bill collectors at bay
F                              Bb
I guess all his money, well it isn't enough
F                     C              F
Cause that girl's got expensive taste

CHORUS

BREAK:
Bb
Well I guess it ain't easy
                 F
Doing nothing at alllllllll  ohhhh yeahhhh
Bb
But hey man free rides just don't
       G            C
Come along every day

(Let me tell you about my other friend now)

My friend's got a boyfriend

This song reminds me of Ob-La-De Ob-La-Da by the Beatles. Give it a listen and see what you think. That is, if your familiar with the Beatles tune. Perfect tab by the way 5 STARS

One thing you could do is have guitar one playing it strieght the way you have it and then during the Chorus and Bridgce, have guitar 2 play it with chordsw below with Ska (upstroke technique). Just something me and a buddy do and it sounds nice.
