Interlude:
D A G A


Verse:
       D               A
It's a new day, but it all feels old
       D                      G
It's a good life, that's what I'm told
    D              A                  G     G
But everything, it all just feels the same
      D                    A
At my high school, it felt more to me
       D                   G
Like a jail cell, a penitentiary
   D                    A            G    G
My time spent there, it only made me see


Pre-Chorus:
     Bm                 G
That I don't ever wanna be like you
D                    D
I don't wanna do the things you do
    Bm                   G
I'm never gonna hear the words you say
    A                   A
and I don't ever wanna, I don't ever wanna be


Chorus:
D   A    G          A        D         A
Yooooooooouuu don't wanna be just like you
G             A              D      A       G              A
  Oh what I'm sayin' is this is the anthem, throw all your hands up,
D       A     G       A
Yoooouuuuuuu... don't wanna be...

You!


Verse:
      D             A              D                          G
Go to college, a university, get a real job, that's what they said to me
    D             A                 G       G
But I could never live the way they want
          D                A                  D                   G
I'm gonna get by, and just do my time, out of step while,they all get in line
D                A                G        G
I'm just a minor threat so pay no mind


Pre-Chorus:
Bm                  G                    D                 D
Do you really wanna be like them, do you really wanna be another trend?
Bm                   G
Do you wanna be part of that crowd?
       A                   A
'cause I don't ever wanna, I don't ever wanna be


Chorus:
D   A    G          A        D         A
Yooooooooouuu don't wanna be just like you
G             A         D           A       G              A
  Oh what I'm sayin' is this is the anthem, throw all your hands up,
D       A     G       A
Yoooouuuuuuu... don't wanna be you


Bridge:
Bm       A                  G        A

sorry but it sounds a tad better if at the very end of the song instead of going G A G you should do G A D

but thats just my opinion great otherwise
