Intro:

A  F#m, Bm  E (x2)

Verse 1:

A            F#m         Bm            E

 You're only acting like, you are some-body.
A      F#m          Bm             E

 But I don't no say, you're not no-body.
A      F#m      Bm            E

 Don't take off  your painted face, girl.
A           F#m             Bm                 E

 'Cos under-neath that face, you're just a dis-grace.

Chorus 1:

                  A                F#m  Bm         E

So, you're just a brand new second hand; no man no wan', no.
  A                F#m  Bm      E

A brand new second hand; a only come from school.
  A                F#m  Bm          E

A brand new second hand; a girl, no men do.
       A                F#m   Bm  E

Just a brand new second hand.

Verse 2:

A         F#m      Bm            E

 What you got girl, that I don't know?
A        F#m                   Bm               E

 Why you really really got, to exulate yourself so?
A             F#m     Bm           E

 Mama used to tell me, long time a-go, girl,
A              F#m            Bm                E

 Its not every-thing you know, that glitter, is gold.

Chorus 2:

                  A                F#m  Bm         E

So, you're just a brand new second hand; no man no wan', no.
  A                F#m  Bm      E

A brand new second hand; a only come from school.
  A                F#m  Bm          E

A brand new second hand; a girl, no men do.
       A                F#m   Bm  E

Just a brand new second hand.

Interlude:

A              F#m, Bm  E

 Sha la la la, la,
A              F#m, Bm  E

 Sha la la la, la.
A              F#m, Bm  E

 Sha la la la, la,
A              F#m, Bm  E

 Sha la la la, la.

Verse 3:

A                   F#m            Bm               E

 You think it's the dress you wear, that make you a lady.
A         F#m                   Bm           E

 Get that out of your mind, gal; you must be crazy.

Chorus 3:

                  A                F#m  Bm         E

So, you're just a brand new second hand; no man no wan', no.
  A                F#m  Bm      E

A brand new second hand; a only come from school.
  A                F#m  Bm          E
