Here is a better interpretation of I Wanna Be Sedated by the Ramones
than either of the ones that are currently posted on the mirrors site.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
                 I    W  A  n  n  A    B  E    S  E  D  A  t  E  D

                                  Artist:  Ramones


Intro: E (2 measures) - slide into it from a D#

E                                      B               E
Twenty-twenty-twenty four hours to go     I wanna be sedated

E                                  B               E
Nothin' to do and no where to go-o	   I wanna be sedated


     B                      E
Just get me to the airport put me on a plane

B                   E
Hurry hurry hurry before I go insane

   B                             E
I can't control my fingers    I can't control my brain

   A           B
Oh no no no no no


Lead guitar picks 8th notes on the open high E string over E A B E
chords (1 measure each)

E (2 measures) - slide into it from a D#. Then it goes up a *full* step
to:

F#                                      B               F#
Twenty-twenty-twenty four hours to go     I wanna be sedated

F#	                             B              F#
Nothin' to do and no where to go-o   I wanna be sedated


     C#                      F#
Just put me in a wheelchair get me to the show

C#                   F#
Hurry hurry hurry before I gotta go

C#                               F#
I can't control my fingers    I can't control my toes

   B           C#
Oh no no no no no

F# (2 measures)

Repeat last verse, then:


F#                   B              C#              F#
Ba-ba-bamp-ba     Ba-ba-ba-bamp-ba     I wanna be sedated

F#                   B              C#              F#
Ba-ba-bamp-ba     Ba-ba-ba-bamp-ba     I wanna be sedated


repeat and let F# ring to end

 Title:  I Wanna Be Sedated


 	E E E E E E E E E E E

         E   E  E  E  E  E  E
 	Twenty-twenty-twenty four hours ago

         A	            E E E E
 	I wanna be sedated

         E  E  E  E  E  E  E
 	Nothin' to do and no where to go-o-o

         A                   E E E E
	I wanna be sedated

            B B B B                            E E
	Just get me to the airport put me on a plane

         B B B B                           E E E
 	Hurry hurry hurry before I go insane

         B B B B                                E   E
 	I can't control my fingers I can't control my brain

         A A A   B  B B
 	Oh no no no no no


         E     E     E
         Ba-ba-bamp-ba
         A     A     A
         Ba-ba-ba-bamp-ba
         B     B     B
         I wanna be sedated

 	The 'solo' part is:
 E-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-|
 B----------------------------|
 G----------------------------|
 D----------------------------|
 A----------------------------|
 E----------------------------|


 	Over the E E E E A A A A B B B B E E E E part.

 	then it goes up a *full* step so that the chords are:

 	F# B C#

 	hopefully, that's enough explanation of this one.

 	Distort heavily, and make up your own lyrics as needed.

I wanted to learn this song for my 5 year old grandson. Most of this is fine. The 1st two lines are E A E not E B E. The 2nd verse stays in E. The ending goes 4 times not two.
