Oh you pretty things

I imagine this tab can be used to figure out a guitar arrangement but its meant for 
since the song was written for piano.

Put on some clothes, shake up your bed

I've made some breakfast and coffee

A crack in the sky and a hand reaching down to me

Where the books were found by the Golden ones

Written in pain, written in awe
     Bb7/D           Ebmin      Gb7/E             B/Eb
By a puzzled man who questioned what we were here for

Mamas and Papas insane

Oh You Pretty Things

   They're the start of a coming race
Gb                          Db
The earth is a bitch, we've finished our news
Bb7/D            Ebmin    Gb7/E       B/Eb
     Homo Sapiens have outgrown their use
        Cdim(A)         Db7
All the strangers came today
