lyrics

C F
I tell you to wear sunscreen,
Am
But then I go and get burnt.
C F
Don't stick the knife in the toaster,
Am
Oh you think I would have learnt.
C F
I can’t believe that you are sick,
Am
Don’t you read the best by date,
C F
I know it was the creme burlee,
Am
Cos that’s exactly what I ate, oh….


C F Am
I'm extremely hypocritical,
C F
I think that I am always right,
Am
But I don't really know.
C F
Don't tell me what to do,
Am
But I'll make sure that I tell you, cos...
C F Am
I'm extremely hypocritical.

Hypocritical

Falling off a cliff,
The second time always hurts the worst
I say this with authority
Because i did it first.

Don't climb that tree,
But look and see
That’s how i broke my leg.
I yell and scream,
Please look a me,
I never loose my head, oh…

I'm extremely hypocritical,
I think that I am always right,
But I don't really know.
Don't tell me what to do,
But I'll make sure that I tell you, cos...
I'm extremely hypocritical,
Hypocritical

Please tell me that you love me,
But I won't tell you the same.
This relationship has become a mess,
You're the only one to blame.

You think that I'm an idiot
And I act like a fool,
Unfortunately that is
Absolutely positively true.

G
Everybody acts like this, except for me cos I’m perfect
Everybody acts like this, except for me cos I’m perfect

I think that I am special
But I’m no different.
Ohhh
You think i would have learnt….
By now.

I’lI tell you not to do something
Then I go do the same.
The only explanation is
That I am really lame

But I never admitted it no,
Cos that's just what i do
I just turn it all around
And poke fun at you

Cos...

I'm extremely hypocritical,
I think that I am always right,
But I don't really know.
Don't tell me what to do,
But I'll make sure that I tell you, cos...
I'm extremely hypocritical,
Hypocritical
