Declan McKenna - Be an Astronaut Chords


[Intro]
Am

[Verse 1]
Am
Daniel,  do you remember?
Am                    G
You were in such a state
           F                    C
Boys would wait outside your house
              Dm
I've got your number
              G             C
And I'm not afraid to use it

[Verse 2]
Dm
  They'll probably give it up
Dm                              C
To anyone they see,  including me
F                  Em            Dm
  They'll probably make up your mind
          C            G
As if you want them to

[Chorus]
    F
Oh, you
                Am            C
Those boys tell you what to do
           Dm
All of the time
G            F
Oh, later on
                 Am             C
You said I could be just what I want
                   Dm
And they said stop lying
              G             F
Well you were born to be an astronaut
           C              Dm
And you'll do that or die trying
G           F               Am
  What a way to live and die
                G            F
And you wonder why boys will cry
             C                 Dm                  G       F
Boys will be boys, They should listen, do as their Mothers tell them.

[Verse 3]
Dm
   If you know what's good for you
Dm                             C
Behave yourself this time, for me
F                    Em
 If you know what's good for you
      Dm            C            G
Don't lay around complaining all day
   F                 Am               C
Oh my, the boys that wait along the line
            Dm
They're not crying

[Chorus]
G          F
Oh, later on
          Am                 C
They will tell you what went wrong
               Dm
They said stop lying
              G             F
Well you were born to be an astronaut
           C              Dm
And you'll do that or die trying
G             F                  Am Bb     F
  There'll be nothing wrong with it----, I---

[Solo]
C ( Em  C )x3

G                    F
 Oh, you waste your time
              C
Come waste mine

[Chorus]
G    F                 Am              C
  Oh my, the boys that wait along the line
                Dm
And they're not crying
G              F
Oh, then later on
         Am                  C
You will tell them what went wrong
                       Dm
And they'll say you're lying
              G       F
Well you were born an astronaut
           C              Dm
And you'll do that or die trying
G             F                  Am Bb      F
  There'll be nothing wrong with it----, I---

[Outro]
( G  F  Am  C  Dm )x2
G  F  C  Dm
F  Fm  C
