[Intro]
C C F C G C

[Verse 1]
C
When I was just a little boy like you
     C
I wanted to do things the big boys do
    F
Wherever they went you knew they wouldn't let me go
C
And I got suspicious and I wanted to know
      G
I was bright in school but my future looked dim
           C
'Cause the big boys wouldn't let me party with them

[Chorus]
C                         C
Yes, yes - I didn't cry - yes, yes - and you know why
F
Yes, yes - I knew when and what
C
Yes, yes - no ifs, ands, or buts
G                                  C
.... I was looking for joy - yes, yes, yes, yes
           C 
When I was little bitty boy

[Solo]
C C F C G C

[Verse 2]
    C
All of the big girls with their to
       C
When I ask 'em what's happening, nobody knew
         F
But when I found out where, what, when, and why
  C
I didn't let a single week pass by
         G 
Till the school dance when I first met you
       C
And I learned to party like the big boys do

[Chorus]
C                         C
Yes, yes - I didn't cry - yes, yes - and you know why
F
Yes, yes - I knew when and what
C
Yes, yes - no ifs, ands, or buts
G                                  C
.... I was looking for joy - yes, yes, yes, yes
           C 
When I was little bitty boy

[Solo]
C C F C G C

[Verse 3]
   C
If I would have known what makes a world go 'round
             C
I would have known what goes up must come down
   F
If you love me like I love you, 
C
Mademoiselle you chimboy woo
    G
The girls want to stay and the boys want to play
           C
So let's a rock and roll till the break of day

[Chorus]
C                         C
Yes, yes - I didn't cry - yes, yes - and you know why
F
Yes, yes - I knew when and what
C
Yes, yes - no ifs, ands, or buts
G                                  C
.... I was looking for joy - yes, yes, yes, yes
           C 
When I was little bitty boy

[Outro]
