Okay, this is The Grouch by Green Day
Set your guitar to standard tuning, and this can be played on both 
acoustic and electric sounds better on electric)


You'll get the hang of it, just fiddle around with it





Don't worry, you'll get it

now the lyrics:

Do VERSE part
I was a young boy that had big plans,
Now I'm just another Shitty old man,
I don't have fun and I hate everything,
the world owes me so fuck you,
Glory days don't mean shit to me,
I drank a six-pack of apathy,
life's a bitch and so am I,
the world owes me so fuck you

do CHORUS part
Wasted youth and a fistful of ideals,
i had a young and optimistic point of view,
wasted youth and a fistful of ideals,
I had a young and optimistic point of view,

do VERSE part
I've decomposed yet my gut's getting fat,
oh my god i'm turning out like my dad,
I'm just a grouch sitting on the couch,
the world owes me so fuck you,
the wifes a nag and the kids fucking up,
I don't have sex 'cause I can't get it up,
I'm always rude,
I've got a bad attitude,
the world owes me so fuck you,

do CHORUS part
wasted youth and a fistful of ideals,
I had a younf and optimistic point of view,
wasted youth and a fistful of ideals,
i had a young and optimistic point of view,


do VERSE part
I was a young boy that had big plans,
now i'm just another shitty old man,
i don't have fun and I hate everything,
the world owes me so fuck you,
the world owes me so fuck you,
the world owes me so fuck you,

Damn, am I good?!

About the artist behind The Grouch Tab:

Green Day is an American punk trio formed in 1987.[1] The band has consisted of Billie Joe Armstrong (vocals, guitar), Mike Dirnt (bass guitar, vocals), and Tré Cool (drums, percussion) for the majority of its existence.

Green Day was originally part of the punk rock scene at 924 Gilman Street in Berkeley, California. Its early releases for independent record label Lookout! Records earned them a grassroots fanbase, some of whom felt alienated when the band signed to a major label.[2] Nevertheless, its major label debut Dookie (1994) became a breakout success and eventually sold over 10 million copies in the U.S. alone, and 15 million copies sold worldwide.[3] As a result, Green Day was widely credited, alongside fellow California punk bands The Offspring and Rancid, with reviving mainstream interest in and popularizing punk rock in the United States.[4][5] Green Day's three follow-up albums, Insomniac, Nimrod and Warning did not achieve the massive success of Dookie, but they were still successful, reaching double platinum and gold status respectively.[6] Green Day's 2004 rock opera American Idiot reignited the band's popularity with a younger generation, selling five million copies in the U.S.[7]

The band has sold over 65 million records worldwide,[8] including 22 million in the United States alone.[9] They also have three Grammy Awards, Best Alternative Album for Dookie, Best Rock Album for American Idiot, and Record of the Year for "Boulevard of Broken Dreams".
