D2 E7(4x)


-Verse 1-
  D2                       E7
I think this place is swell,
        D2                E7
There's much familiar here.
  D2                 E7
I get my laundry done
    D2                     E7
And I get home-cooked meals.
    D2                    E7
And when I'm feeling tired,
      D2                     E7
I can turn off all the lights,
  D2                  E7
Ignore the knocking on the door,
   D2                E7
Pretend I'm not alive.



-Chorus-
    Fmaj7        G
But, Daddy, it's Saturday,
    D2        E7       D2     E7
And I don't want to go outside
Fmaj7            G
And mow the grass today.
    D2            E7      D2      E7
So, would you love me just as much
         D2           E7     D2
If I was just your stupid kid
E7  D2            E7      D2      E7
So, would you love me just as much
         D2           E7     D2 E7
If I was just your stupid kid


D2 E7(2x)


-Verse 2-
They tell me that I'm bright
Sometimes I think they're right
But I guess I'll never know
'Cause I won't go outside
Some days it's just so hot
And others it's so cold
Too much exposure to the sun
Would just make me look old


-Chorus-
    Fmaj7        G
But, Daddy, it's Saturday,
    D2        E7       D2     E7
And I don't want to go outside
Fmaj7            G
And mow the grass today.
    D2            E7      D2      E7
So, would you love me just as much
         D2           E7     D2
If I was just your stupid kid
E7  D2            E7      D2      E7
So, would you love me just as much
         D2           E7     D2 E7
If I was just your stupid kid


D2 E7(2x)


-Bridge-
Fmaj7       G
Well, isn't this Saturday?
Fmaj7        G
It sure feels like Saturday.
Fmaj7       G
So, wake me Saturday.
Fmaj7       G
Daddy, it's Saturday.


-Verse 3-
    D2                 E7
And my mind wanders off
   D2                    E7
To things I've never seen,
    D2                         E7       D2         E7
Are these walls higher than the cost of opportunity?
    D2                E7
I'm too big for my bed,
    D2                    E7
And I've outgrown my shoes.
D2                    E7
But my fear of leaving
           D2                     E7
Is the one thing I just can't lose.


-Chorus-
Fmaj7        G
Daddy, it's Saturday,
    D2        E7       D2     E7
And I don't want to go outside
Fmaj7            G
And mow the grass today.
    D2            E7      D2      E7
So, would you love me just as much
Fmaj7      G
If I never got a job
    D2     E7      D2         E7
And if I never left your house?
Fmaj7         G
Would I be of use to you
D2      E7  D2         E7
If I never amounted to much more
     D2        E7         D2 E7
Than just your stupid kid?
    D2          E7      D2      E7
So, would I love me just as much
         D2           E7     D2
If I was just your stupid kid?
