[Verse 1]

A                      F# F
There's always somebody taller with more of a wit
A                      F#       F                           A
And he's equipped to enthral her and her friends think he's fit
                           F#    F                 A
And you just can't measure up no, you don't have a prayer
                            F#         F
Wishing that you'd made the most of her when she was there


[Pre-Chorus]

E                            F#
They've got engaged, there's no intention of a wedding
D                          F
He's pinched your bird and he'd probably kick your head in


[Chorus]

A                D
Bigger boys and stolen sweethearts
A                         D
Oh, you're better off without her anyway
A                   D
You said you wasn't sad to see her go
A         D
Yeah, but I know you were, though


[Verse 2]

A                             F#    F
Now you don't know what she's up to you can only assume
A                                     F#           F
If she's not in the front of the shops then they've gone to his room
A                             F#         F
Bet she's gone 'round in her school stuff, bet that’s what he likes
A                           F#       F
I know you thought she were different and you thought she were nice


[Pre-Chorus]

E                         F#
But she's not nice, she's pretty fucking far from nice
      D                            F
She’s looking at you funny, rarely looking at you twice


[Chorus]

A                D
Bigger boys and stolen sweethearts
A                         D
Oh, you're better off without her anyway
A                   D
You said you wasn't sad to see her go
A               D
 Yeah, but it's so clear you were, though


[Interlude]

A F# F  A F# F
A F# F  A F# F
A F# F  A F# F


[Verse 3]

A                              F#     F                A
Have you heard what she's been doing? Never did it for me
                        F#        F               A
He picks her up at the school gate at twenty past three
                           F#  F                    A
She's been with all of the boys but never went very far
                              F#   F
And she wagged English and Science just to go in his car


[Pre-Chorus]

E                            F#
They've got engaged, there's no intention of a wedding
D                        F
He's pinched me bird and he'd probably kick my head in, oh
   E                   F#
Oh, now the girls have grown
              D                          F
Yeah, but I'm sure that they still carry on in similar ways


[Chorus]

A                D
Bigger boys and stolen sweethearts
A                      D
Oh, I'm better off without her anyway
A               D
I said I wasn't sad to see her go
A              D                   A
Yeah, but I'm only pretending, you know
          D                    A
Yeah, I'm only pretending, you know
      D                    A
I was only pretending, you know
      D                    A    D  A
I was only pretending, you know
