Verse 1

G        (or tab same as introduction)
Oh look at me so ordinary, no mystery, with no great capabilities,
    Em        D             C                G
But I could make out as if I had it but you don’t,
Em          D              C           G              D            
God I’m so obvious and I should let it go oh I don’t know.


Chorus 1

G
I’m no teenage icon,
C         D
I’m no Frankie Avalon,
G               C  D   G
I’m nobody’s hero.
 
Verse 2

G         (or tab same as introduction)
Preserved and shy your average guy, no piercing stare, just out of shape with messy hair,
    Em         D            C          G 
But I always figured I was somebody in wake,
Em            D                C             G             D  
  And now I’m guessing that my woman must be late cause I need her.

Chorus 2

G
I’m no teenage icon,
C          D
I’m no Frankie Avalon,
G               C   D   G
I’m nobody’s hero.

Solo 1: (G, C, D, Em, D, C, G, Em, D, C, G, Em, D, C, G, D)

Bridge 
 
C        D          G     C
I’m not magnetic or mythical,
C      D         G     C
I’m suburban and typical,
C              D    G       C                   D    G
But I got it, I got I’m overrun with it all.

Verse 3

G
Seductive charm a way with words so effortless not leather clad or dangerous,
    Em       D             C             G
But I always did it like a real rebel would,
Em        D                C                G                               
  I had a photo where John Lennon may have stood, 
          D
or so I’m told.

Chorus 3

G
I’m no teenage icon,
C         D         
I’m no Frankie Avalon,
G               C  D
I’m nobody’s hero.

Solo 2: (G, C, D, G, C, D)


Chorus 4

G
I’m no teenage icon,
C         D
I’m no Frankie Avalon,
G              C  D    G
I’m nobody’s hero.
