Welcome to the Double Dare UK tabs pages. We are actually a live pub band performing around Horsham, Sussex, but I have published some of my 600 song tabs on this site for sharing amongst the music community. If you want to copy tabs, simply cut and paste the words off the page and straight into WORD or NOTEPAD. I have worked carefully on many of these TABS to make sure that the chords are shown directly over the words, so the chord change corresponds exactly to the place where you are singing. That means you can play the whole songs straight off the paperwork without having to think about the structure of the song at all. I hope you enjoy these CHORDS, and please check out the many more we have on the SONGS page. Check out my band on the rest of the website too if you are interested...

        Bridge:

 

        When the words came stumbling out of my mouth

        o, I'm going home

       

       

        But I'll keep hoping you are the only one

        Yes, and I'll send you letters, oh, wouldn't it be such fun

        Oh, we are who we are, whatever the others say

        But poetry is not for me, and much as I'd like to stay

        Oh, I just want to go home

 

        You're, you're, you're too young

        [should've been], you, you're, you're too young

        [it should've been], you too, you're too, you're too young

        [it should've been], you, you, you're too young

        [you should've been, safer, saner]

        [bribed the judge and then] sat down

        ooh, you're, you're, you're too young
