Capo 1st fret

[INTRO] x4
Am

[Verse]
Am                         F
Raised to be a lady by the golden rule
Dm                        Am
Alice was the spawn of a public school
                                  F
With a double barrel name, in the back of her brain
       Dm             G                  Am
And a simple case of mummy-dont-love-me blues

[Verse]
Am                    F
Reality it seems, was just a dream
    Dm                          Am
She couldn't get it on, with the boys on the scene
                                           F
But what do you expect from a chick who’s just sixteen
    Dm                       G                   Am
And hey hey hey  (hey hey hey)  you know what I mean

[Chorus]
F#m7                         F
   All the young girls love Alice
C                       D7
Tender young Alice they say
     Am                    F
Come over and see me, come over and please me
G#         A#         Am
Alice it's my turn today

F#m7                        F
   All the young girls love Alice
C                       D7
Tender young Alice they say
     Am                           F
If I give you my number, will you promise to call me?
G#           A#         Am
Wait 'til my husband’s away

[Verse]
Am                             F
   Poor little darling, with a chip out of her heart
          Dm                             Am
It's like acting in a movie, when you've got the wrong part
                        F
Getting your kicks, in another girl's bed
           Dm                G                                 Am
And it was only last Tuesday, oh, they found you in the subway dead

[Verse]
Am                                          F
   And who could you call your friends down in Soho? 
Dm                              Am
One or two, middle aged dikes in a go-go? 
                                      F
And what do you expect from a sixteen year old yo-yo? 
    Dm                        G             Am
And hey hey hey  (hey hey hey)  oh, don't you know

[Chorus]
F#m7                         F
   All the young girls love Alice
C                       D7
Tender young Alice they say
     Am                    F
Come over and see me, come over and please me
G#         A#         Am
Alice it's my turn today

F#m7                        F
   All the young girls love Alice
C                       D7
Tender young Alice they say
     Am                           F
If I give you my number, will you promise to call me?
G#           A#         Am
Wait 'til my husband’s away

[Outro]
Am

Hey Tandem2, thanks for the contribution. The chord over lyric format like this works best for me. Give me the right chords and I can usually figure out the picking. That being said, I think a [G#] works better than the [G] in the chorus. Check it out. Thanks again. PEACE!

Personally prefer to play this as barre chords, starting on the Bb on 6th fret, then dropping down to the F# on 2nd fret, then up to the Ebm on 6th fret before returning the Bb (above it) on 6th fret. Then quickly stab an A-shaped Eb to Db triad to replicate the shrill guitar riff a the end of the progression. It sounds BADASS! Great song. Man, early EJ was sooooo good.
