D5                      G            A       D 
     I don't mind other guys dancing with my girl.

            Em               A                       D

(same pattern, D, Dsus4, A)
The kids are alright.  The kids are alright.
               D
The kids are alright.


///////////////
A* and G* represent an F-barre chord (i.E. xx7655 and xx5433).
Where I have the chord over the middle of a syllable (or in some cases
over underscores at the end of a word), play the chord about an eighth
note behind.  In the section where I have the chords in between words,
strum the chord twice (eighth notes).  Listen to the recording.
