D
You are somebody that I don’t know,
                      D
But you’re taking shots at me like it’s Patrón.
                                     G
And I’m just like, “Damn!
       G
It’s 7 AM.”

 

D
Say it in the street, that’s a knock-out.
           D
But you say it in a tweet, that’s a cop-out.
                               G
And I’m just like, “Hey!
        G
Are you OK?”

 

        D
And I ain’t tryna mess with your self-expression,
                D
But I’ve learned the lesson
That stressing and obsessing
                 G
‘Bout somebody else is no fun.
And snakes and stones never broke my bones.

 

        D                                     D
So, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh!
                         G
You need to calm down.
                           G
You’re being too loud.

 

And I’m just like,
        D                                     D
“Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh!
                       G
You need to just stop.
                       G           
Like, can you just not step on my gown?
                D
You need to calm down.”

 

      D
You are somebody that we don’t know,
                    D
But you’re coming at my friends like a missile.
                      G
Why are you mad
                                    G
When you could be GLAAD?
(You could be GLAAD.)

 

D
Sunshine on the street at the parade,
                 D
But you would rather be in the dark ages
                       G
Making that sign.
                              G
Must’ve taken all night.

 

D
You just need to take several seats
               D
And then try to restore the peace
And control your urges to scream
                                         G
About all the people you hate
‘Cause shade never made anybody less gay

 

        D                                     D
So, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh!
                         G
You need to calm down.
                           G
You’re being too loud.

 

And I’m just like,
        D                                     D
“Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh!
                       G
You need to just stop.
                       G           
Like, can you just not step on my gown?
                D
You need to calm down.”

 

And we see you over there on the Internet
D
Comparing all the girls who are killing it,
G
But we figured you out.
G
We all know now.
We all got crowns.
You need to calm down.

 

        D                                     D
So, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh!
                         G
You need to calm down.
                           G
You’re being too loud.

 

And I’m just like,
        D                                     D
“Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh!
                       G
You need to just stop.
                       G           
Like, can you just not step on my gown?
                D
You need to calm down.”
