   Intro Riff
   Guitar 2 (starting at the second part of Guitar 1's Intro Riff)
    A2  E  A2

   Verse 1
E
To know her, is to love her, I'm going undercover
A2                                     E
To catch a glimpse but not get caught

But to see her, could be worse, If I don't get my head straight first
A2                                  E
On second thought I guess I'll not

Pre-Chorus 1
Bb/C#                           A2
She's almost brighter than the sun
                    E
Seems to me to be unfair
                      Bb/C#
When you consider everyone
                      A2
Who pales when they compare, when they compare

Chorus
E
Can’t hold a candle to her
                                A2
Cause all the moths get in the way

And they’ll begin to chew her
                         E
Entire attire until it frays

For she outshines anyone whoever might
Bb/C#           A2               E
Dare to bask in the same candlelight

Intro Riff
Verse 2
E
Oh please don’t seat us in the back, With all the insects and the trash
A2                       E
She is a lady I’m the tramp

Collecting stares from pairs close by, Then flutters in a butterfly
A2                           E
Ew just a moth drawn to the lamp

Pre-Chorus 2
Bb/C#                      A2
She’s like an ancient artifact
                                E
Something you’re lucky to have found
                                   Bb/C#
She’ll pinch the nerves in all the necks
                             A2
When she turns those heads around, those heads around

Chorus
Intro Riff 2x
Chorus

Good! But according to your chord chart, I'm pretty sure your Bb/C# is actually a C#/Bb5 because Bb is the bass note.
