A                           Asus4
    Her green plastic watering can
Dmaj9/F#                    E6
    For her fake chinese rubber plant
Dsus2          A        Dsus2
    In fake pla-ah-stic earth
A                                 Asus4
    That she bought from a rubber man
Dmaj9/F#                 E6
    In a town full of rubber plans
Dsus2         A            Dsus2
    To get ri-i-d of itself


It wears her out
It wears her out
It wears her out
              A      Asus4
It wears her out

[Verse] (same chords)

She lives with a broken man
A cracked polystyrene man
Who just crumbles and burns
He used to do surgery
For girls in the eighties
But gravity always wins

And it wears him out
It wears him out
It wears him out
        Asus4    A
It wears

She looks like the real thing
She tastes like the real thing
My fake plastic love
But I can't help the feeling
I could blow through the ceiling
If I just turn and run


And it wears me out
it wears me out
It wears me out
It wears me out    Amaj7

And if i could be

Who you wanted
If I could be

who you wanted
E6  Bm11
A---ll the time
All the time
Ah ah ah


Bm11 // Bm11 // A // A  E6 // Bm11 // Bm11 // A.


This is the solo from the third verse. It's pretty quiet on the album but you can make it out OK.
(each dash is a semiquaver (or 16th whatever you call it))



Sorry for the typing mess up in the solo but you can't fit a double figure number into one character!
So to clear it up:| There are 5 8th-note 11s in the fifth measure/bar.
                  | And the notes in the eighth measure are all 8th-notes

This is one of the greatest songs by the greatest bands ever. And rest assured:

THIS TAB IS 100% ACCURATE (this statement is not legally binding)

Obviously if you're playing the rhythm (Thom's) part to this song you'll just have to
out the picking for your damn self cause I couldn't be hassled with it but the chords are
to the song.

This tab is better than the others on this page.

So happy... tabbing.(?)

This tab is right... except Amaj7 (X 0 2 1 2 0) should be replaced with Em6 (022120)... But... still correct! :)
