Happy Go Lucky Go Fuck Yourself CHORDS: C F G C Happy go lucky go fuck yourself I don’t wanna talk to you Happy go lucky go fuck yourself I don’t wanna talk to you I don’t care how you wear your hair Oh I grew my hair real long then I shaved one side I combed it to one side then thought to myself Asymmetrical is radical Happy go lucky go fuck yourself I don’t wanna talk to you Happy go lucky go fuck yourself I don’t wanna talk to you Got to get our eyes of the fashion scene Turn off that TV throw out that magazine Happy go lucky go fuck yourself I don’t wanna talk to you I don’t care what you eat The poor folks I know like deep fried processed meats So fry up your tempeh in some coconut oil don’t make no difference to me Happy go lucky go fuck yourself I don’t wanna talk to you Happy go lucky go fuck yourself I don’t wanna talk to you Gotta get our struggle from the grocery isle and out into the street Happy go lucky go fuck yourself I don’t wanna talk to you Happy go lucky go fuck yourself I don’t wanna talk to you Happy go lucky go fuck yourself I don’t wanna talk to you

VERSE: A Bm E A x 2 CHORUS: E7 A x 2 F#m E D A The barflies are at the coffee shop they’ve been grouches all morning emptying coffee pots filling up ashtrays taking years off their lives they don’t show signs of stopping to go home and see their wives and I, I don’t blame ya no I, I don’t blame ya for saying fuck it you only live once the bar stools are empty just down the street and everyone there knows your name so theres no one left to please as long as you settle up at the end of the night you won’t have to drink alone for the rest of your life and I, I don’t blame ya no I, I don’t blame ya for saying fuck it you only live once the factory sits empty where some people used to work they say entertainments the new industry hope your skills will transfer but its hard to keep amused when your pockets start to hurt but a good case of cheap beer will never lose its worth and I, I don’t blame ya no I, I don’t blame ya for saying fuck it you only live once between the cheers and pints and empty jugs and jars i hear people talking in all the local bars. they say the revolutions coming i can feel it in my bones but its so hard to smash the state while i’m paying off my loans and I, I don’t blame ya no I, I don’t blame ya for saying fuck it you only live once

MINE IS YOURS VERSE: D A D CHORUS & INSTRUMENTAL: A D x 2 Bm A D x2 you gave to me your heart with words soft and kind sure was hard to trust but i gave you mine but the world is not black and white not even shades of grey life is full colour love makes it feel that way you said share with me your whole heart mine is yours oh mine is yours some say the world was made from dust and now we are all here you said life is full of meaning won’t you search for it with me but love is never easy when we hurt inside we fear what we desires true so we run and hide you said share with me your whole heart mine is yours oh mine is yours now i have many friends that i could make love too they’re beautiful their skin is soft and their friendship is real true but you are the one my heart has chose i have not been perfect thats not the reason you have froze you said share with me your whole heart mine is yours oh mine is yours i’m not afraid for you to break me if thats what you need do go see the world and sleep with every sailor and backpacker that you meet guess thats all you’ve ever known might be all you ever see i’m sorry to be honest what’d you ask of me you said share with me your whole heart mine is yours oh mine is yours you gave to me your heart with words soft and kind sure was hard to trust so i gave you mine

all the anarchists i know well they have degrees but the ones that really wanna smash the state are working on their phd’s but there’s a revolution coming won’t matter what class you took how many banners you dropped or angry fists you shook happy go lucky go fuck yourself i don’t wanna talk to you happy go lucky go fuck yourself i don’t wanna talk to you we say we wanna fight to win but invest and participate in the institutions built on colonial hate happy go lucky go fuck yourself i don’t wanna talk to you i don’t care about the songs you sing the words or the chords or the harmonies you bring everyone knows folk music’s too polite to make anyone change their mind happy go lucky go fuck yourself i don’t wanna talk to you happy go lucky go fuck yourself i don’t wanna talk to you you’ll be lucky if anyone even taps their toes let alone starts a sing-a-long movement that goes happy go lucky go fuck yourself i don’t wanna talk to you
