Standard Tuning - 4/4 Time

Introduction: D  A  G  D   (4 times) 


D            G                  D       D
You think we look pretty good together
D            G                 D        D
You think my shoes are made of leather


          Em             Em
But I'm a substitute for another guy
  Em                      Em
I look pretty tall but my heels are high
  Em                              Em
The simple things you see are all complicated
  Em                             Em          A      A
I look pretty young but I'm just back-dated yeah


D     A    G        D 
Substitute lies for fact
D              A            G       D 
I can see right through your plastic mac
D          A            G         D 
I look all white, but my dad was black
D               A              G           D(hold)
My fine-looking suit is really made out of sack


I was born with a plastic spoon in my mouth
The north side of my house faced east and the east was facing south

Now you dare to look me in the eye
Those crocodile tears are what you cry
It's a genuine problem you won't try
To work it out at all you just pass it by, pass it by

Substitute me for him 
Substitute my coke for gin
Substitute you for my mum
At least I'll get my washing done

But I'm a substitute for another guy
I look pretty tall but my heels are high
The simple things you see are all complicated
I look pretty young but I'm just back dated yeah


Break: D  A  G  D   (4 times)


I was born with a plastic spoon in my mouth
North side of my town faced east and the east was facing south

And now you dare to look me in the eye
But crocodile tears are what you cry
If it's a genuine problem you won't try
To work it out at all, just pass it by, pass it by


Substitute me for him
Substitute my coke for gin
Substitute you for my mum
At least I'll get my washing done

Substitute lies for fact
I can see right through your plastic mac
I look all white but my dad was black
My fine looking suit's really made out of sack
