Lyrics for Than Me

Capo 3rd fret.
[Eb]        [Ab]        [Eb]        [Bb]        [Eb]        [Ab]        [Cm]        [Bb]        [Eb]        [Cm]        [Bb]        [Eb]
[Eb]A lot of folks are better [Cm]than I [Bb]am
are kin[Eb]der and have bigger [Ab]hearts
I am a work in [Bb]progress [Cm]man
and I’ve [Bb]met some bright hu[Eb]mans

But [Eb]there’s [Ab]nobo[Bb]dy I [Ab]would rather [Eb]be
than me, than [Bb]me
[Cm]No one I’d rather [Ab]be
than me, than [Bb]me
[Cm]Nobo[Ab]dy...
[Bb][Eb]but a better [Bb]me

[Eb]Oooo[Bb]oo [Cm]oooo[Ab]oo [Eb]oooo[Bb]oo [Cm]oooo[Ab]oo

Most [Eb]people are easier [Cm]on the [Bb]eyes
than I [Eb]am; it’s no sur[Ab]prise
it’s not hard to [Bb]look a[Cm]live
like you have an [Bb]IQ over forty-[Eb]five

Many [Eb]brains make mine seem like a [Cm]lump of [Bb]lead
they think [Eb]straight and they’re so well [Ab]read
they can speak like [Bb]they’re well-[Cm]bred
and none of it [Bb]gives ‘em a swell [Eb]head

[Eb]There’s [Ab]nobo[Bb]dy I [Ab]would rather [Eb]be
than me, than [Bb]me
[Cm]No one I’d rather [Ab]be
than me, than [Bb]me
[Cm]Nobo[Ab]dy...
[Bb][Eb]but a better [Bb]me

[Eb]Oooo[Bb]oo [Cm]oooo[Ab]oo [Eb]oooo[Bb]oo [Cm]oooo[Ab]oo

[Eb]Many are [Cm]far [Bb]stronger
than I [Eb]am; they work harder and [Ab]longer
their work day [Bb]well under [Cm]way
while I [Bb]lay in peaceful [Eb]slumber

[Eb]Almost everyone [Cm]who I [Bb]meet
is ri[Eb]cher and much more [Ab]chic
I’m the geek with [Bb]two left [Cm]feet
hoping it’s [Bb]true, about the [Eb]meek

[Eb]There’s [Ab]nobo[Bb]dy I [Ab]would rather [Eb]be
than me, than [Bb]me
[Cm]No one I’d rather [Ab]be
than me, than [Bb]me
[Cm]Nobo[Ab]dy...
[Bb][Eb]but a better [Bb]me

[Eb]Oooo[Bb]oo [Cm]oooo[Ab]oo [Eb]oooo[Bb]oo [Cm]oooo[Ab]oo

No [Eb]matter how much of a [Cm]useless [Bb]brat
I may [Eb]be, in [Ab]fact
I can’t ever be [Bb]inade[Cm]quate
at being my[Bb]self: that’s what I’m best [Eb]at

[Eb]There’s [Ab]nobo[Bb]dy I [Ab]would rather [Eb]be
than me, than [Bb]me
[Cm]No one I’d rather [Ab]be
than me, than [Bb]me
[Cm]Nobo[Ab]dy...
[Bb][Eb]but a better [Bb]me

... but a [Eb]better [Bb]me [Eb]
