Basic song:
1st part     2nd part       3rd part
F#, E, B     F#, E, B, B    F#, C#, E, B
                             alternate
                            F#, C#, B, F# 
in full : 

F#             E
We are the 8 0 1

B                  F# 
We are the central shaft  -  And we are

E               B
here to let you take advantage

F#             E
Of our lack of craft

B                    F#
Certain streets have certain corners

E                B
Sooner or later, we'll turn yours

F#             E
We are the 8 0 1

B                     F#
We are the central shaft  - And thus through-

 E                   B
-out two years we've crossed the ocean 

F#            E
in our little craft (Row! Row! Row!)

B                F#
Now we're on the telephone

E                B
Making final arrangements (Ding! Ding!)

F#             E
We are the 8 0 1

B                     F#
We are the central shaft 

E  B  B

F#                    E 
Looking for a certain ratio

B                         B                      
Someone must have left it underneath the carpet

F#                      E 
Looking up and down the radio

B                    B                      
Oh-oh, nothing there this time

F#                    E 
Looking for a certain ratio

B                        B                      
Someone said they saw it parking in a car-lot

F#                      E 
Looking up and down the radio

B                    B    
Oh-oh, nothing there this time

F#                      E 
Going back down to the radio

B                          B    
Oh, oh - oh, oh - oh, oh - here we go!

       =======      =======      =======
  ===  B, B bent to C/C#, A, B  -- like:  ===

    1     2     3     4     1     2     3     4

Either keep that up for the last part, or switch to chords.
I like F#, C#, E, B when alone, or F#, C#, B, F# if there is A bass.
       =======      =======      ======= 

F#               
We are the table, the captain's table

C#
Let's get it understood, let's get it understood

E
We are the losers, we are the bruisers

B
Let's get it understood, let's get it understood

F#
We are the diners, the final diners

C#
Let's get it understood, let's get it understood

E
Most of us tinkers, some of us tailors,

B
And we've got candlesticks, and lots of cocktail sticks

F#
We saw the lovers, the modern lovers

C#
And they looked very good, they looked as if they could

E
We are the neighbours, the nosy neighbours

B
We think just like we would, we think just like we should.

   ====  (continue 3rd part)  ====
Oh, oh oh oh oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
