July 1, 2011Posted by on
This song is my interpretation of Tim Minchin’s wonderful piece of biting social commentary. It is, appropriately, in the key of F. (See it on YouTube)
A link to my ukulele version can be found at the bottom of this post.

By Tim Minchin ========================= Chords: EADGBe F ........... xx3211 C............ 332010 CaddG#....... 332110 Bb........... 113331 G7........... 320001 F Fuck the motherfucker. F Fuck the motherfucker. F C Fuck the motherfucker, he's a fucking motherfucker. C Fuck the motherfucker. C Fuck the fucking fucker. C F Fuck the motherfucker, he's a total fucking fucker. F Fuck the motherfucker. F Fuck the motherfucker. F C Fuck the motherfucker, fucking fuck the motherfucker. C F Fuck the motherfucker. Fuck the motherfucking Pope. F Fuck the motherfucker, and fuck you motherfucker F C If you think that motherfucker is sacred. C If you cover for another motherfucker who's a kiddie fucker, C F Fuck you! You're no better than the motherfucking rapist. Bb And if you don't like the swearing that this motherfucker forced from me F And reckon it shows moral or intellectual paucity G7 Then fuck you motherfucker, this is language one employs C When one is fucking cross about fuckers fucking boys. F I don't give a fuck if calling the Pope a motherfucker F C Means you unthinkingly brand me an unthinking apostate. C This has nowt to do with other fucking godly motherfuckers, C F I'm not interested right now in fucking scriptural debate. Bb There are other fucking songs and there are other fucking ways, F I'll be a religious apologist on other fucking days G7 And the fact remains if you protect a single kiddie fucker C Then pope or prince or plumber you're a fucking motherfucker. F You see, I don't give a fuck what any other motherfucker F C Believes about Jesus and his motherfucking mother. C I've no problem with the spiritual beliefs of all these fuckers, C F whilst those beliefs don't impact on the happiness of others. Bb But if you build your church on claims of fucking moral authority F And with threats of hell impose it on others in society G7 Then you, you motherfuckers, can expect some fucking wrath C CaddG# when it turns out you've been fucking us in our motherfucking asses. F So fuck the motherfucker, and fuck you motherfucker F C If you're still a motherfucking papist. C If he covered for a single motherfucker who's a kiddie fucker, C F Fuck the motherfucker! He's as evil as the rapist. Bb And if you look into you motherfucking heart and tell me true F That this motherfucking stupid fucking song offended you, G7 C With its filthy fucking language and its fucking disrespect, C CaddG# If it made you feel angry go ahead and write a letter. F C But if you find me more offensive then the fucking possibility F C - the pope protected priests when they were getting fucking fiddly - F Then listen to me motherfucker, this here is a fact: F You are just as morally misguided as that Bb C F motherfucking, power hungry, self-aggrandised bigot in the stupid fucking hat. (Repeat and Fade) F Fuck the motherfucker. Fuck the motherfucker. F Fuck the motherfucker. Fuck the motherfucker.
I have created a version of this song with chords for the ukulele. Now you can teach it to your children, so they can play it in the school talent show. 😉
