[Intro] 

Am  F  C  G x2


[Verse]

Am                                              F
The story starts when it was hot and it was Summer
        C                                     G
And, I had it all; I had him right there where I wanted him
Am                                        F
She came along, got him alone, and let's hear the applause
C*                                         G*
She took him faster than you can say sabotage
Am                                    F
I never saw it coming, wouldn't have suspected it
C                             G
I underestimated just who I was dealing with
Am                                                 F
She had to know the pain was beating on me like a drum 
C*                                G*
She underestimated just who she was stealing from 

G (building intensity)


[Chorus]

Am                                           F
She's not a saint and she's not what you think 
                C             G
She's an actress, Whoa
Am                                           F 
She's better known for the things that she does 
                C              G
on the mattress, Whoa
Am 
Soon she's gonna find 
                F                                                 G
Stealing other people's toys on the playground 
                                           F
Won't make you many friends 
Am
She should keep in mind,
F
She should keep in mind 
                              G~
There is nothing I do better than revenge, Ha 

Am  F  C  G


[Verse]

Am                                          F
She lives her life like it's a party and she's on the list 
C                                            G
She looks at me like I'm a trend and she's so over it 
Am                                        F
I think her ever present frown is a little troubling 
           C*                                                 G*
And, she thinks I'm psycho cause I like to rhyme her name with things, but 
Am                              F
Sophistication isn't what you wear, or who you know 
C                                                G
or pushing people down to get you where you wanna go 
Am                                                      F
Oh they didn't teach you that in prep school, so it's up to me 
C*                                            G*
But no amount of vintage dresses gives you dignity 


[Chorus]

Am                                           F
She's not a saint and she's not what you think 
                C             G
She's an actress, Whoa
Am                                           F 
She's better known for the things that she does 
                C              G
on the mattress, Whoa
Am 
Soon she's gonna find 
                F                                                 G
Stealing other people's toys on the playground 
                                           F
Won't make you many friends 
Am
She should keep in mind,
F
She should keep in mind 
                              G~
There is nothing I do better than revenge, Ha ha

F (strumming building intensity)


[Verse]

Am~                                                   F~
I'm just another thing for you to roll your eyes at honey 
        G~                                 F~
You might have him, but haven't you heard 
      Am~                                             F~
I'm just another thing for you to roll your eyes at honey
         G (strumming, building intensity)               Am  F  C  G         
You might have him, but I always get the last word     Whoa

Am  F  C  G


[Chorus]

Am*                                          F*
She's not a saint and she's not what you think 
                C             G
She's an actress, Whoa
Am                                           F 
She's better known for the things that she does 
                C              G
on the mattress, Whoa
Am 
Soon she's gonna find 
                F                                                 G
Stealing other people's toys on the playground 
                                           F
Won't make you many friends 
Am
She should keep in mind,
F
She should keep in mind 
                              G
There is nothing I do better than revenge

                      Am                 F
And do you still feel like you know what you're doing, 
          C                                  G
Cause I don't think you do, Oh 
              Am                 F
Do you still feel like you know what you're doing 
C                                  G
I don't think you do, I don't think you do 
(G)                              Am
Let's hear the applause 
                                F                                      C
C'mon show me how much better you are 
G                                                Am
See you deserve some applause 
                         F
Cause you're so much better 
C*                                         G*
She took him faster than you can say sabotage
