B                                 A                 
  My bodyguard shows her revolver to anyone who asks 
B                                 A                                             
  And yeah she comes to attention when you come up to me too fast 
B                                   A                          
  For a little while you'll be here, the only good part of me 
B                                     A                                    
  For a little while you'll be here 

        E        B             A                       
So lit up, lit up, lit up alright 
   A                             
I try to untie Manhattan 
     E       B              A           
Lit up, lit up, lit up alright 
   A                                   
I try to untie 

       B                         
  You wear skirt like a flag 
       A                        
  And everything surrounds you, and it doesn't fade 
       B                          
  Nothing like this sound I make 
        A                      
  That only lasts the season 
                    B                              A   
  And only heard by bedroom kids who buy for that reason 
                 B                      A           
  Cuz you're the low life of the party, bad blood 
   B                    
  Bad blood for everybody 
          A                    
  I'm in control and I believe 
 
   E           B             A        
So lit up, lit up, lit up alright 
    A                     
I try to untie Manhattan 
    E      B                A    
Lit up, lit up, lit up alright 
                          E         B       A
I try to untie from your bad blood 
           E        B    A
From your bad blood 
 
               E         B            A        
Cuz you're the low life of the party, bad blood 
E               B      
Bad blood for everybody 
     A                      
I'm in control and I believe 
 
     E                B                   A 
So lit up, lit up, lit up, lit up alright 
    A                   
I try to untie Manhattan 
     E             B                 A   
Lit up, lit up, lit up, lit up alright 
   A             E
I try to untie
