Capo 1st fret

INTRO: Am x 4
[Am]Raised to be a lady by the [F]golden rule, 
[Dm]Alice was the spawn of a [Am]public school. 
With a double barrel name.. in the [F]back of her brain, 
And a [Dm]simple case of [G]mummy-doesnt-love-me [Am]blues.[Am] 
#
VERSE 2 
[Am]Reality it seems.. was [F]just a dream, 
She [Dm]couldnt get it on.. with the [Am]boys on the scene. 
But what do you expect from a chick whose [F]just sixteen, 
And [Dm]hey hey hey  (hey hey hey)... [G]you know what I [Am]mean. [Am]
#
CHORUS 1 (strum chords once in all chorus)
[Am]All the young girls love [F7]Alice, 
[C]Tender young Alice they [D7]say. 
Come [Am]over and see me, come [F]over and please me, 
[G]Alice it's [Bb]my turn [Am]today. 
 
[Am]All the young girls love [F7]Alice, 
[C]Tender young Alice they [D7]say. 
If I [Am]give you my number.. will you [F]promise to call me? 
[G]Wait till my [Bb]husbands [Am]away. (Am x 4) 
#
VERSE 3 
[Am]Poor little darling.. with a [F]chip out of her heart, 
It's like [Dm]acting in a movie.. When you've [Am]got the wrong part. 
Getting your kicks, in a[F]nother girls bed, 
And it was [Dm]only last Tuesday...[G]Oh..they found you in the subway [Am]dead.[Am] 
#
VERSE 4 
[Am]And who could you call your friends down in [F]Soho? 
One [Dm]or two, middle aged dykes in a [Am]Go-Go? 
And what do you expect from a [F]sixteen year old yo-yo? 
And [Dm]hey hey hey (hey hey hey}...[G]oh don't you [Am]know.[Am] 
#
CHORUS   
[Am]All the young girls love [F7]Alice, 
[C]Tender yound Alice they'd [D7]say. 
Come [Am]over and see me, come [F]over and please me,
[G]Alice it's [Bb]my turn [Am]today. 
 
[Am]All the young girls love [F7]Alice, 
[C]Tender young Alice they'd [D7]say. 
If I [Am]give you my number will you [F]promise to call me? 
[G]Wait till my [Bb]husbands [Am]away.

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.
