[Intro]

G F G F x3

[Verse 1]

G           F                   G
Daniel, you did it, you made me cry
F G
You spent ten days in bed when I asked you why
F G
And requested my whereabouts through tweets
F G
Darling, why do you bury yourself in sheets? Well, I told you
F G
There's unrest in the House of Lords
F
Written on sandwich boards
G F
Outside the shop where they sell your favourite drink
G C
So what do you think you're doing telling people lies?
F Am
The hope's going like Christmas pies
G F
But it's never gonna stop you turning pink

[Chorus]

Dm          C            G
Daniel, you know it, you wanted to
F Am G
Find a place on your own like you always do
Dm C G
I'....d bear in mind
Dm C G F G F
Daniel, you're still a child

[Verse 3]

G                 F
Daniel's gone running, the trail's gone cold
G F
You've been acting quite strangely since ten years old
G F
And when you were eleven
G F
They said, "You ought to pray to high heaven you don't get caught"

[Chorus]

Dm                  C          G
Well, Daniel, don't worry, you won't be missed
F Am G
You'll spend ten years in prison to pay for this
Dm C G
A....h, is it all worthwhile?
F Am G F Dm C G F C F
Daniel, you're still a child

[Bridge]

Dm
You got a death wish, child
C
Four cans of pesticide to drink
Dm
4:30 Western Time
C
The boy's been arrested, why do you think?

G Am Dm
G F Fm Dm C
G F Gm A F G F G

[Outro]

G                            F
Daniel, you're still a child
G F G F G F
Daniel, you're still a child
G
What is wrong with Daniel, he's no fun
F C F
You just wait 'till Daniel hurts someone
C A
Daniel, you're a weirdo, what the hell?
G F N.C
You just wait 'till Daniel hurts himself
