Version 1.0
Tuning: Standard

This here is the tab for Fluorescent Adolescent (the live
by Arctic Monkeys. The main differences between the regular version and this version are 
one is played down in a
key (down 1 step) and part of the song 'Only You Know' by Dion is added into the middle, 
is also a tempo change which you should listen out for.

As always, you should work out timing and strumming for yourself as you can't
tell someone how to do that in a tab. Any problems or questions, just shoot me an email 
I'll
back to you ASAP.

Another note; the A chord in brackets you see crop up occasionally is a quick chord
in the middle if you watch the video and listen to the song you can tell how to play it.

Guitar 1 (Alex Turner)

Intro x2
D Bm (A) Em A

Verse 1
                            D
You used to get it in your fishnets,

Now you only get it in your night dress,

Discarded all the naughty nights for niceness,

Landed in a very common crisis,
                            D
Everything's in order in a black-hole,
                           Bm
Nothing seems as pretty as the past though,
                  (A)         Em
That Bloody Mary's lacking in Tabasco,
                               A
Remember when you used to be a rascal?

Chorus
               Em
Oh the boy's a slag,
                     A
The best you ever had,
                     Em
The best you ever had,
          A                Em
Is just a memory and those dreams,
               A
Weren't as daft as they seemed,
               Em
Not as daft as they seemed,
                  G
My love when you dreamed them up...

Verse 2
                                   D
Flicking through a little book of sex tips,
                                  Bm
Remember when the boys were all electric?
               (A)                 Em
Now when she's told she's gonna get it,
                                     A
I'm guessing that she'd rather just forget it,
                             D
Clinging to not getting sentimental,
                              Bm
Said she wasn't going but she went still,
          (A)                  Em
Likes her gentlemen not to be gentle,

Was it a Mecca dauber or a betting pencil?

Chorus
                          Em
Oh the boy's a slag,
                                A
The best you ever had,
                  Em
The best you ever had,
           A                Em
Is just a memory and those dreams,
                    A
Weren't as daft as they seemed,
                Em
Not as daft as they seemed,
                 A
My love when you dream them up....

(Tempo drops here)

Bridge
F#m               Bm
Oh Flo, where did you go?
              Em
Where did you go?
              F#m  Em
Where did you go? Woah.

D Bm Em A

Only you know
D                          Bm                Em       A
I wanna see something that used to be in your eyes again,
   D                   Bm                  Em             A
I'm waitin' to see it, you know it's only a question of when,
         D        F#             G
And I know how much I'm missin' heaven,
    D
You know that it's missin'
              Em
Only you know where you have been to,
D                Em
Only you know what you have been through,
    D                            Em
But there's better things you're gonna get into,
                     D
And I wanna be there too....

D Bm Em A x2

Verse 3

D        Bm
Falling about
     Em                      A
You took a left off Last Laugh Lane,
             D          Bm
You were just sounding it out,
Em                     A
You're not coming back again.

Build back up to regular tempo strumming A


D          Bm   (A)
Falling about,
     Em                       A
You took a left off Last Laugh Lane,
              D        Bm     (A)
You were just sounding it out,
    Em                    A
But you're not coming back again.

                             D
You used to get it in your fishnets,
                            Bm
Now you only get it in your night dress,
          (A)                     Em
Discarded all the naughty nights for niceness,
                       A
Landed in a very common crisis,
                            D
Everything's in order in a black hole,
                           Bm
Is anything as pretty as the past though?
                  (A)         Em
That Bloody Mary's lacking in Tabasco,
                               A                                          Bm
Remember when you used to be a rascal? Oh.

Fade out.
