BASTARD                BEN FOLDS


Intro- Em

    Em                      D          G
  The old bastard left his ties and a suit,
  D          G     D              G       C     D
    a brown box, mothballs, and bowling shoes.
    Em                    D              G
  And his opinion so you never have to choose
  D         G           D         G     C     
    pretty soon, you'll be an old bastard too.
  Am
    You get smaller while the world gets big,
  C
    the more you know you know you don't know shit,
  Am                                                        C
    the whizz-man will never fit you like the whizz-kid did.

       G            D           Em           D     C
  So, why ya gotta act like ya know when ya don't know?
  Am     Em-C                               
    It's okay, if you don't know everything.  


The old bastard left his ties and his suit
A brown box, mothballs and bowling shoes
and his opinion so you'd never have to choose
Pretty soon, you'll be an old bastard too
You get smaller while the world gets big
The more you know you know you don't know shit
The whizz-man'll never fit you like the whizz-kid did

So why you gotta act like you know when you don't know?
It's okay if you don't know everything
Why you gotta act like you know when you don't know?
It's okay if you don't know everything

Close your eyes close your ears young man
You've seen and heard all an old man can
Spread the facts on the floor like a fan
throw away the ones that make you feel bad

Kids today gettin' old too fast
they can't wait to grow up so they can get some ass

They get nostalgic about the last ten years
before the last ten years have passed

why you gotta act like you know when you don't know?
It's okay if you don't know everything
Why you gotta act like you know when you don't know?
It's okay if you don't know everything

Tears land on a hand on the chest
The old bastard had a paradigm arrest

You got smaller and the world got big
The more you knew we knew we didn't know shit
The whizz-man never fit him the whizz-kid did

Why you gotta act like you know when you don't know?
cause It's okay if you don't know everything
Why you gotta act like you know when you don't know?
It's okay if you don't know everything
