[Strum G for a couple of bars for the intro]

    G                         G/F#
Her green plastic watering can
                             C
For her fake Chinese rubber plant
             C/B      C         G
In the fake plastic earth
         G                       G/F#
That she bought from a rubber man
                             C
In a town full of rubber plans
         C/B       C
To get rid of itself

             A7sus4               G
It wears her  out,  it wears her out
             A7sus4               G
It wears her  out,  it wears her out

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

             A7sus4              G
It wears him  out, it wears him out
             A7sus4              G
It wears him  out, it wears him out

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

            A7sus4             G 
It wears me  out, it wears me out
            A7sus4             G
It wears me  out, it wears me out
 
           G/F#
If I could be   who you wanted
           C                    C/B
If I could be who you wanted all   the time
        G
All the time...
