B11  Asus2  Cadd9 (x4) D
 
[Verse 1]

E7       F#7         Cadd9      Amadd11   B
   Alphabet city is haunted
E7        F#7                 Cadd9     Amadd11   B
   Constantina feels right at home
     E7
She probly won't say you're wrong
C#madd11
   You're already wrong 
Cadd9
   You're already wrong
       Aadd11              E7                 B11  Asus2  Cadd9 
And you      threw up whatever she shot down

[Chorus]

                   B11  Asus2  Cadd9
Said show me around
                   B11  Asus2  Cadd9
This alphabet town
                   B11  Asus2  Cadd9   D
Said show me around
 
[Verse 2]

E7           F#7              Cadd9      Amadd11   B
   There's a name you keep repeating
E7          F#7              Cadd9      Amadd11   B
   You got nothing better to do
            Cadd9               B       F7
And you're with someone who'll hear you say it
             E7sus4   Aadd11
And just not mind

E7
   Her hand on your arm
C#madd11
   Her hand on your arm
   Cadd9
She put her hand on your arm
   Aadd11                  E7                B11  Asus2  Cadd9 
         And told you her name you can't pronounce it

[Chorus]

                    B11  Asus2  Cadd9
I'll show you around 
                    B11  Asus2  Cadd9
This alphabet town
                    B11  Asus2  Cadd9
I'll show you around 

This alphabet town
Cadd9        B        F7
     I know what you are
             E7sus4   Aadd11
I just don't mind

E7
   I won't say you're wrong
C#madd11
   I know what you want
Cadd9
   And it's what I want
        Aadd11
So let's      go out

[Outro]

     E7             B11  Asus2  Cadd9
I'm ready to go out
                    B11  Asus2  Cadd9
I'll show you around 
                    B11  Asus2  Cadd9
This alphabet town
                    B11  Asus2  Cadd9
I'll show you around 
                    B11  Asus2  Cadd9 (x4)
This alphabet town

Thanks God!

I just added the chord shape voicings for B and F7 which I somehow forgot the first time around.
