RIOT (2007)

|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|This is a great song by Paramore called Misery Business. It is actually     |
|quite fun to play once you've learned it. These tabs were acquired through  |
|many hours of watching live videos, and piecing apart the different parts.  |
|Because of a lot of playing this song with these very tabs, I know that they|
|are correct. Please enjoy the tabs, and feel free to make changes!          |
|                                                                            |

LYRICS:

VERSE 1
I'm in the business of misery
Let's take it from the top
She's got a body like an hourglass
That's tickin' like a clock
It's a matter of time before we all run out
When I thought he was mine
She caught him by the mouth

I waited eight long months
She finally set him free
I told him I couldn't lie
He was the only one for me
Two weeks and we had caught on fire
She's got it out for me
But I wear the biggest smile

CHORUS
Whoa, I never meant to brag
But I got him where I want him now
Whoa, it was never my intention to brag
To steal it all away from you now
But God, does it feel so good
Cause I got him where I want him now
And if you could then you know you would
Cause God, it just feels so
It just feels so good

VERSE 2
Second chances, they don't ever matter
People never change
Once a whore, you're nothing more
I'm sorry, that'll never change
And about forgiveness
We're both supposed to have exchanged
I'm sorry, honey, but I passed that up
Now look this way

Well, there's a million other girls who do it just like you
Looking as innocent as possible
To get to who they want and what they like
It's easy if you do it right
Well, I refuse, I refuse, I refuse

CHORUS
Whoa, I never meant to brag
But I got him where I want him now
Whoa, it was never my intention to brag
To steal it all away from you now
But God, does it feel so good
Cause I got him where I want him right now
And if you could then you know you would
Cause God, it just feels so
It just feels so good

BRIDGE
I watched his wildest dreams come true
And not one of them involving you
Just watch my wildest dreams come true
Not one of them involving...

CHORUS
Whoa, I never meant to brag
But I got him where I want him now

Whoa, I never meant to brag
But I got him where I want him now
Whoa, it was never my intention to brag
To steal it all away from you now
But God, does it feel so good
Cause I got him where I want him now
And if you could then you know you would
Cause God, it just feels so
It just feels so good
