Song: Plastic Tramp
Artist: Arctic Monkeys
Album: Fluorescent Adolescent

This is on the recently released fluorescent adolescent cd. I saw them live two months
at the Avalon in Boston and they were insane. I’m pretty sure this is how it goes for all
guitars. I put the notes and you should be able to figure out where they go if you just 
to the song

VERSE 1

He looks as though he hasn’t slept

His hair is purposely un-kept

In many though, his people wept (not about that line)

When you crafted your plan

Shadows underneath the eyes

And everywhere the bastard lies

My lack of proof is your disguise

You won’t remember me

CHORUS 1

There’s nothing really I can say

Sorry mate and walk away (not sure about that line)

I could be wrong

(In this) or (Unless) You play your game

There’s one that’s cruel and most unkind

And horrible is redefined

I can’t imagine


That you mind at all

VERSE 2

You’re lying again

Your conscious ain’t your friend

The only thing you’re stopping now

Is your imagination

Lying again

Your conscious ain’t your friend

The only thing you’re stopping now

Is your imagination

Is he really on the street?

Desperation or deceit?

And what he’s wearing on his feet

Won’t solve our mystery

And I am baffled by how you stand there

Better hide your grin
