*(I'll type E4 for short)

During The verses A and E7sus4 are played... E7sus4 is just 
what he plays when he plays a variation of the A chord. You 
could play Asus2 if you like as well. Just choose whatever 
you think sounds better.

A      E4    A      E4
When i was a boy of 10
  A     E4   A    E4
I had a very best friend
A        E4        A      E4
Fred was kind with good intent
Bm                E
But just a little different

   A       E4      Bm
Oh special fred
     E           A      E4      Bm
Mama dropped him on his head
        E      A        E4      Bm
Now hes not so bright instead
       E          A         E4       Bm
He's a little bit special
Just a little bit

(Same chords as the 1st Verse)
We'd play tag and he'd get hurt
I'd play soldier He'd eat dirt
I liked math and spelling bees
Fred liked talking to a tree


I ran track, hung out in malls
Fred ran headfirst into walls
I had girls and lots of clothes
Fred had names for all his toes


C#m           Dm                     C#m
          One day talking to special fred
             Dm                    C#m
He grabbed a brick and swung at my head
      Dm                          C#m
As he laughed at me that's when i knew
             Dm                    E       A     E4
That special Fred had just made me special too

Now i laugh as i count bugs
I give strangers great big hugs
Next to me Fred is fine
Yeah, he's a f'n Eistein

(Same Chords as Chorus)
Oh special fred and me
Now we're not right in the head, ya see
Now we're not so bright instead
We're a little bit special
Just a little bit special
That bastard fred made me special
Just a little bit
Just a little bit...special
