 Geek in the Pink (Open Chords!)
orig. by Jason Mraz

I didn't see an easy way for beginners to play this song, and it's pretty catchy.  
Here's an entirely open-chords version.  (It's so much fun to play barred, though!)

Tip: on some of the chords, you may think the upper E string sounds a little 
goofy, since it's so high.  If that's the case, try muting it by lightly placing 
your pinky on it.  I do this for G, D and B7, but it's up to you.

Capo: 6th Fret (for same key as Mraz)

Verse/Chorus:
Em | C | Am | G | D

Pre-chorus:
Em | C | Am | G | B7

Bridge:
C | Em | B7 | Em
C | Em | B7


Verse:
Em
Let the geek in the pink take a stab at it
C
If you like the way I'm thinking babe, you ain't got it
Am
I may be skinny at times, but I'm fat full of rhymes
G                         D
Pass me the mic and I'm-a grab at it

Em
Well, isn't it delicious crazy way that I'm kissing this baby
C
Listen to this, don't to miss it while it's hitting
Am
Sometimes you got to fit in to get in, but
G                               D
Don't ever quit 'cause soon I'm gonna let you in, but see

Pre-chorus:
Em
I don't care what you might
C
Think about me; you'll get
Am
By without if you want
G B7

Chorus:
Em
I could be the one to take you home
C
Baby, we could rock the night alone
Am
If we never get down, it wouldn't be a letdown, but sugar
G                             D
Don't forget what you already know

Em
I could be the one to turn you out
C
We could be the talk across the town
Am
Don't judge it by the color, confuse it for another, you might re-
G                       D
-gret what you let slip away, like the geek in the pink

Bridge:
C
Hey baby, look at me
Em
go; From zero to
B7
hero; You best take it from a
Em
Geek like me; I can

C
Save you from unoriginal
Em
Dum-dums, who wouldn't care if you
B7
Come . . . plete them or not
