[Intro]

[A] [Amaj7] [D] [Dm]

[Verse 1]

[A] Go through the day
But  I’ll be checking on my phone
To  [D]see if you called
[Dm] You didn’t call
[A] One of the boys
I’ll  be chill, I’ll keep my cool
But  don’t [D]play me for the fool
[Dm]Don’t be so cruel
[A] ‘Cause  I can fake it that I’m ha[A7]ppy
But [D]this time you can see..[Dm]e
[A] You try to make a good memory
‘Cause you [D]like my jealousy…[Dm]
But  you’re

[Pre-Chorus]

[A]Out in the city
When you [N.C]should be here with me
I know I might be boring
But I’m not one for pity
Have a [A]ball
At the Whitney with your [E]friends
All so pretty
I know [D]I’m being dramatic
So I’ll go and wish you

[Chorus]

Have fun in the [A]city, oh, oh, oh[A7]
Have fun in the [D]city, oh, oh, oh [Dm]
(Ah, ah, ah)

[Verse 2]

[A] Time passes slow
And I’ve called everyone I know
But the [D]more that people come over
I [Dm]realize I’m getting worse than I was a[A]lone
Close down my phone
I’ve been on it so much my eyes hurt
And the [D]outside is getting darker
I’m [Dm]tired and it’s getting harder and harder [A]to
Fake it that I’m truly ha[A7]ppy (Happy)
And [D]all my friends can see..[Dm]e (See)
You [Amaj7]try to make a good memo[A7]ry (Memory)
But that’s [D]hard when it’s not with [Dm]me
‘Cause you’re

[Pre-Chorus]

[A]Out in the city
When you [N.C]should be here with me
I know [D]I [N.C]might be boring
But I’m n[A]ot one for pity
So have a ball
At the Whitney with your [C#m]friends
All so [E]pretty
I know [D]I’m being dramatic
So I’ll [Dm]go and wish you

[Chorus]

Have fun in the [A]city, oh, oh, oh [A7]
Have fun in the [D]city, oh, oh, oh [Dm]
Have fun in the [A]city, oh, oh, oh
Have fun in the [D]city, oh, oh, oh [Dm]

[Outro]

[A] Have fun
Go and have [D]fun
Have [Dm]fun
Oh, oh, oh[A]
Have [D]fun
Have fun
Have [Dm]fun

[A] [Amaj7] [A7]
[D] [Dm]
