((INTRO:)) [G-D-C9-D-]
       [Em-D-Em-D-]
       [C9-D-C9-D-]

[G           D]
My name is Luka
[C9              D]
I live on the second floor
[G         D]
I live upstairs from you
[C9]
Yes, I think you've seen me
  before

[Em             D]
If you hear somethin' late at
  night
[Em             D/F#]
Some kind of trouble, some
[           C9]
  kind of fight,
[           D]
Just don't ask me what it was
[C9         D]
Just don't ask me what it was
[C9         D (pause)]
Just don't ask me what it was

[G               D]
I think it's 'cause I'm
  clumsy
[C9            D]
I try not to talk too loud,
[G             D]
Maybe it's because I'm crazy
[C9           D]
I try not to act too proud
[Em            D]
And they only hit until you
  cry
[Em     D]
After that, you don't ask
[  C9]
  why
[                D]
You just don't argue anymore
[C9          D]
Just don't argue anymore
[C9          D pause    (Ad lib)]
Just don't argue anymore


((AD LIB:)) [(1st stanza chords)]

[G        D]
Yes, I think I'm okay
[C9                 D]
I walked into the door again
[G       D]
If you ask that's what I'll
  say
[C9                  D]
And it's not your business
  anyway.
[Em           D]
I guess I'd like to be alone
[Em             D]
With nothing broken, nothing
[   C9]
  thrown
[           D]
Just don't ask me how I am
[C9         D]
Just don't ask me how I am
[C9         D pause]
Just don't ask me how I am

(Repeat 1st stanza)
