MARINA & THE DIAMONDS - Can't Pin Me Down

This song is from the album FROOT(2015), released on Mar 16, 2015.
I really enjoyed the rhythm section of this song. The vocals were not very impressive in this song, however the background music was excellent. The bass guitar felt great, while the guitar strumming added a nice effect to the song.

     D              F#m           C#m                D
I'm happy cooking dinner in the kitchen for my husband

You're not even close
E               F#m
Baby, it's the one thing
C#m              A
That I hate the most
E               F#m          C#m         A
All these contradictions pouring out of me
E             F#m        C#m     A
Just another girl in the 21st century
