Subject: chords:New Kid On the Block by Barenaked Ladies

This is a funny and fun song by what is becoming my favorite band the
more I listen to them. The basic structure of the song is verses
alternating between Em and C major, and the chorus following A G-Am-F
progression. I'm probably way off on some of the lyrics, but hopefully
you get the idea.


Em       C
I didn't ask to be famous
Em          C
But I'm not sore
Em      C                  Em              C
You can see my face in the window of every store
Em      C
You can buy my lunch box
Em      C
You can wear my clothes
Em      C                  Em                  C
You can see my name its as plain as the face under your nose

CHORUS:
      G   Am         F
I'm a new kid on the block
G                   Am             F
Well I may not be Johann Sebastian Bach
       G       Am                 F
And we may not write the songs we sing
            G                 Am                       F
But look at Elvis he sold his soul and you crowned him king

EM      C
I DIDNT ASK TO BE FAMOUS
EM         C
BUT IM NOT SAD
EM
YA SEE IVE GOT EVERYTHING THAT I ALWAYS WISHED I HAD

IN FACT ME MIND IS TIRED

IM TIRED OF SCREAMING GIRLS

I THANK MY HAIRDRESSER FOR

GIVING ME SUCH BEAUTIFUL CURLS

NOW IM A NEW KID ON THE BLOCK

WELL IM 23 AND THEY WONT LET ME GROW UP

I WENT DOWN TO REGISTER FOR THE DRAFT

WELL I GOT UP TO THE COUNTER AND

THE LADY THERE JUST LAUGHED

CHORUS:

SHE SAID YOUR A NEW KID ON THE BLOCK

YOUNG GIRLS AND OLD BOYS MOCK

WELL YOU BROKE MY YOUNGEST DAUGHTERS HEART

WELL I KNEW YOU KIDS WERE TROUBLE FROM THE START

I DIDN'T ASK TO BE FAMOUS,BUT I'M NOT SURE

THAT WERE AS APPLE PIE AS YOU ALWAYS THOUGHT WE WERE

I CAN STAY UP ALL NIGHT,I CAN HAVE A BLAST

I CAN BREAKDANCE,I CAN FIGHT,I CAN KICK YOUR SORRY ASS

I'M A NEW KID ON THE BLOCK

AND THOUGH I MAY NOT BE JOHANN SEBASTION BACH

THERES NO NEED TO BE AFRAID OF US

THOUGH IT JUST MIGHT BE YOUR DAUGHTER ON OUR BUS

Very close. The only correction I have is all the F's in the chorus should actually be Fmaj7's. Otherwise, perfect.

Fmaj7: x33210

Correct Chorus:
G Am Fmaj7
I'm a new kid on the block
G Am Fmaj7
Well I may not be Johann Sebastian Bach
G Am Fmaj7
And we may not write the songs we sing
G Am Fmaj7
But look at Elvis he sold his soul and you crowned him king
