So what is the -very- first song you learned to play?

I am trying to find a song that is suitable difficulty, but I find a lot of these "beginner" songs are really difficult for me (sadly). The only song I can really play right now is the Moldy Peaches song from Juno and a few chords -_-

the first song i learnt waz misery business - dead easy its by paramore
They made me do push ups in drag

I'm gonna have a really hard time if we're both cannibals and racists.

Don't dress as a whore, he'll thump you.

I'm a firework, primed to go off

and I love how people make searchbar jokes because they feel that no thread should be done twice , when in reality the only thing that keeps getting more redundant is the people who make searchbar jokes.

stop being such a killjoy , you're the only one complaining
