Thanks for bowie (landrew1@hotmail.com) for the original transcription.

My band was interested in learning this song.  But the one tab that seems
to be the most available on the web has parts that needed to be corrected.
Try as I might, I could not find an official transcription of this.  So,
I am basing my corrections on my own interpretation plus watching numerous
videos of the Kinks playing this song.

I did not bother with timing notation. Listen to the song to figure it out;
it is an easy song.  I also did not tab out the fills and solos (I never do
as I play my own anyway).

Silly boy you got so much to live for.....






Song structure:

Intro:
Drum fill
Riff 1 (2x) bass and drums only

Verse I:
Riff 1 (2x) bass and drums only

Met a girl called Lola and I took her back to my place
Feelin' guilty, feelin' scared, hidden cameras everywhere!!!
Stop!

Riff 1 (8x) all instruments…intensity increases as you approach the chorus

Hold on.  Stay in control

Girl, I want you here with me
But I'm really not as cool as I'd like to be
'Cause there's a red, under my bed
And there's a little yellow man in my head
And there's a true, blue inside of me
That keeps stoppin' me, touchin' ya, watchin' ya, lovin' ya

Chorus I:
Riff 2 (2x) + an extra Riff 1 Redux

Paranoia the destroyer
Paranoia the destroyer

Verse II:
Riff 1 (6x)

Well I fell asleep, then I woke feelin' kinda' queer
Lola looked at me and said, "ooh you look so weird."
She said, "Man, there's really something wrong with you.
One day you're gonna self destruct."
You're up, you're down, I can't work you out
You get a good thing going then you blow yourself out.

Chorus II:
Riff 2 (2x)

Silly boy you self destroyer
Silly boy you self destroyer

Bridge I:
Riff 3 + Riff 2

Silly boy you got so much to live for
So much to aim for, so much to try for
You're blowing it all with paranoia
You're so insecure you self destroyer
(and it goes like this, here it goes)

Chorus III:
Riff 2 (2x)

Paranoia the destroyer
(here it goes again)
Paranoia the destroyer

Interlude
Riff 1 (3x)

Verse III
Riff 1 (6x)

Doctor, Doctor help me please I know you'll understand
There's a little time device inside me, I'm a self destructing man
There's a red, under my bed
And there's a little green man in my head
And he said, "you're not goin' crazy, you're just a bit sad
'Cause there's a man in ya, gnawin' ya, tearin' ya into two."

Chorus IV:
Riff 2 (2x)

Silly boy you self-destroyer
Paranoia the destroyer

Bridge II:
Riff 3 + Riff 2

Self-destroyer, wreck you're health
Destroy you're friends, destroy yourself
The time device of self-destruction
Light the fuse and start eruption
(Yeah, it goes like this, here it goes)

Outro Chorus:
Riff 2 (5x)
Paranoia the destroyer
(Here's to paranoia)
Paranoia the destroyer
(Hey Hey, here it goes)
Paranoia the destroyer
(And it goes like this)

Paranoia the destroyer
(And it goes like this)
