Good Charlotte "Like its her birthday" Chords and Lyrics

This is only my third effort at working out chords and lyrics for a Good Charlotte song, despite their having released 5 albums since 2000. I guess they don't get too much airplay on Irish or UK radio, so I have only previously posted my interpretations of "Lifestyles of the rich and famous" and "Dance Floor Anthem", both of which are featured on my Miscellaneous Rock songs guitar chords page .

I like the bands indie/pop/rock sound, and the songs are usually pretty playable, even for learning guitarists, so I hope to get a chance to listen to the new album "Cardiology" and maybe work out chords for another song or two - probably "Counting the Days" which I gather is to be the second single.

"Like it's her birthday" is played in the tricky key of F sharp, or more accurately, G sharp minor, so once again I've tried to simplify the song by transposing it to the key of D / E minor, and putting a capo on the 4th fret so that you can play along with the original. Doing it this way means the chords used are D, Em, C and G, which are raised by the capo to the actual chords of F#, G#m, E and B.

I have posted my transposed version of "Like it's her Birthday" on my Rock Songs Guitar Chords page at (PJ's Guitar Chords and Lyrics)
