Only A Ginger

Am In our modern free spoken society G There is a word that we still hold taboo
F A word with a terrible history of being E used to abuse oppress and subdue

Am Just six seemingly harmless letters G arranged in a way that will form a word
F With more power than the pieces of metal that are E forged to make swords

A couple of F G’s an R and an G E an I and an Am N……..

Just six little F letters all jumbled G together have caused E damage that we may never mend

Am And it’s important that we all respect G that if these people should happen to choose to
F Reclaim the word as their own it doesn’t E mean the rest of you have a right to it’s use

Am So never under estimate G the power that language imparts
F Sticks and stones may break your bones E but words can break hearts

A couple of G’s; F geez unless you have had to live it,
an R and an E; G even I am careful with it

An I and an N Am and in the end it will G only offend
don’t want to F have to spell it out E again

Am G F E…..x2

Am Only a ginger G can call another F ginger E ginger …..
Am Only a ginger G can call another F ginger E ginger …..

F So listen to me if you care for your health
G You wont call me ginger less your E ginger yourself

Am Only a ginger G can call another F ginger E ginger …..

Am When you are a ginger life is G pretty hard
F Years of ritual bullying in the E school yard

Am Kids calling you ranga and G fanta pants
F No invitation to the E high school dance

>>But you Am get up and learn to hold your Am head up
You F try to keep your cool and not get E fed up

Am But.until.the.feeling.of.ill is truly G let up
Then the F word is ours and ours E alone …don’t you know

Am Only a ginger G can call another F ginger E ginger …..
Am Only a ginger G can call another F ginger E ginger …..

F So if you call us ginge we just F might come F unhinged
G If you don’t have a fringe with at least a tinge of the E ginge in it
Am Only a ginger G can call another F ginger E ginger …..

>>>Now listen to Am me we’re not looking for G sympathy
F Just because we are sensitive to E UV

Am Just because we’re pathetically G pale
F>> We do alright with the E females

Am Yeah I like to ask the ladies round for G ginger beer
F And soon they’re running their fingers through my E ginger beard

Am And dunking my ginger nuts into their G ginger tea
And F asking if they can call me E ginge And I say I don’t think that’s appropriate

Am Only a ginger G can call another F ginger E ginger …..
Am Only a ginger G can call another F ginger E ginger …..

F And all the ladies agree it’s a F fact G once you’ve gone ginge you E can’t go back
Am Only a ginger G can call another F ginger E ginger …..

Am G F E…..x2
(slow)
Am Yeah you can call us bozo or C fire truck F You can even call us carrot top or E blood nut
Am Yeah you can call us match stick or C tampon…….
F But f**king with the G word is E just not on

Am If you’re a ginger bowl and you don’t G like us
F You gonna stand up to the fight if you want to E fight us

Am But if you cut yourself you might catch G gingervitus
F So maybe you should shut your E funky mouth

Am Only a ginger G can call another F ginger E ginger …..
Am Only a ginger G can call another F ginger E ginger …..

F So if you call us ginge you can’t winge if your injured
If you G don’t have a tinge of the ginge in your E minge
Am Only a ginger G can call another F ginger E ginger …..

F And you know my kids will always be clothed and fed
Cus G papa’s going to be bringing home the E ginger bread

F And they’ll be pretty smart because they’ll be well read
And by G read I mean read and the E other kind of red wooo

Am Only a ginger G can call another F ginger E ginger …..
Am Only a ginger G can call another F ginger E ginger …..
Just like Am only a ninja G can sneak up on another F ninja E

Am Yeah only a ginger G only a ginger F only a ginger E yeah

F Are you listen-inga I’m not pointing the Am finga
I’m just having a G singa I’m just right E in yeah

But only a ginger can call another ginger

Little Lion Man intro: Em G Em G

Em Weep for yourself, my man, you’ll never be what is in your G heart.
Weep little lion man, you’re not as brave as you were at the start.

D Rate yourself and rape yourself, C take all the courage you have G left.
Wasted on fixing all the problems that you made in your own head.

Ch{ But it was not your fault but mine, Em D G
and it was your heart on the line.
I really fucked it up this time,
didn’t I, D my dear? Didn’t I, Em my dear? G Em G

Tremble for yourself my man, you know that you have seen this all before.
Tremble little lion man, you’ll never settle any of your scores.

D Your grace is wasted in your face,
your C boldness stands alone among the G wreck.

D Learn from your mother or else C spend your days biting your own G neck.

I Want You Back G (capo 1 for E)

Oh noooo…. Let me tell you now ooh hoo

When I had you to myself I didn’t want you around
Those pretty faces always made you stand out in a crowd

But someone picked you from the bunch one glance was all it took
Now it’s much too late for me to take a second look

Ch{ Oh baby give me one more chance G C
Won’t – you- please- let – me (back in your heart)
Oh darlin’ I was blind to let you go (let you go baby)
But now since I see you in his arms
Yes I do now (I want you back)
Ooh ooh baby (I want you back)
Ya ya ya ya (I want you back) Na na na na

Tryin’ to live without your love Is one long sleepless night
Let me show you girl That I know wrong from right

Every street you walk on I leave tearstains on the ground
Following the girl I didn’t even want around Let me tell you now

Ch{ Oh baby all I need is one more chance
Won’t – you- please- let – me (back in your heart)
Oh darlin’ I was blind to let you go (let you go baby)
But now since I see you in his arms

G mm mm oo.oo.oo oo oo All I want….. All I need….

Oh just one more chance to show you that I love you
Forget what happened then (I want you back)

Ch{ Oh baby all I need is one more chance
Won’t – you- please- let – me (back in your heart)
Oh darlin’ I was blind to let you go (let you go baby)
But now since I see you in his arms
