Regina Spektor - legend.
Surprised at lack of tabs for this, so thought I'd do one myself.
Then I realised this song does not transcribe well for guitar.

CAPO ON TWO

[Intro]
Am               C/E
Dun du du dun du dun du dun dun du du dun dun
Dm7/A           Bm7/A                A5
Dun du du dun du dun du dun dun du du dun dun
Am               Cmaj/E
Dun du du dun du dun du dun dun du du dun dun
Dm7/A           Bm7/A                A5
Dun du du dun du dun du dun dun du dun du dun

[Verse]
Am                       C/E
I'm the king's thirty second son
Dm7/A          Bm7/A                A5
Born to him in thirty second's time
Am               Cmaj/E
Born to him the night still young
Csus2                 Em7
Born to him with two eyebrows on
   Dm7/A           Bm7/A    Csus2      Em7
And that's all I was wearing
   Dm7/A           Bm7/A    Csus2      Em7
When I woke up staring at the world

     Am                                        C/E
My mom had been a rather crazy queen
Dm7/A       Bm7/A   A5
But not at all a sex machine
Am                        Cmaj/E
She liked to keep her body clean, clean
Csus2                 Em7
Thought the world to be quite obscene
      Dm7/A           Bm7/A    Csus2      Em7
But she retired to her chamber
   Dm7/A           Bm7/A    Csus2      Em7
And we remain quite strangers

[Bridge]
      Fsus2              Am7
And to see me made her awful sad
      Fsus2              Am7
And to touch me made her awful sad
      Fsus2              Am7
And to see me made her awful
      Fsus2              Am7
And to touch me made her awful

[Verse]
Am                           C/E
I'm the king's thirty second son
Dm7/A                   Bm7/A           A5
And all it took was thirty second's time
         Am                         Cmaj/E
But a spoiled little prince I was not
     Csus2                 Em7
Had a chamber maid and a chamber pot
           Dm7/A           Bm7/A    Csus2      Em7
And there's thirty one others just like me
       Dm7/A           Bm7/A    Csus2      Em7
There's thirty one others I can be


Am                           C/E
Someimtes I'd stand by the royal wall
Dm7/A                   Bm7/A           A5
The sky'd be so big that it broke my soul
         Am                         Cmaj/E
And i stood on my toes to catch a glimpse
     Csus2                 Em7
Of my mother's eyes and my mother's skin
           Dm7/A           Bm7/A    Csus2      Em7
And she retired to her chamber
      Dm7/A            Bm7/A    Csus2      Em7
And we remain quite strangers

[Bridge]
      Fsus2              Am7
And to see me made her awful sad
      Fsus2              Am7
And to touch me made her awful sad
      Fsus2              Am7
And to see me made her awful
      Fsus2              Am7
And to touch me made her awful

[Pre-chorus]
   Esus4
And one morning I woke up
               F
And I thought Oedipus, Oedipus, Oedipus, Oedipus
    Esus4                                 F
Then one morning I woke up and I thought Rex, Rex, Rex
 Esus4
Then one morning I woke up
              F
And I thought Oedipus, Oedipus, Oedipus, Oedipus

      Fsus2
Thirty two's still a goddamn number
      Fsus2/A       Am7
Thirty two's still counts, gonna make it count, gonna make it count
Gonna oh oh
      Fsus2
Thirty two's still a goddamn number
      Fsus2/A       Am7
Thirty two's still counts, gonna make it count, gonna make it count
Gonna oh oh

I'm the king's thirty second son
      Dm7/A                 Bm7/A           A5
There's thirty one others just like me
         Am                    Cmaj/E
There's thirty one others on the way
        Csus2                 Em7
There's thirty one others after that

 Am                   C/E
Sometimes I stand by the royal gate
  Dm7/A            Bm7/A           A5
People screaming love and hate
           Am                    Cmaj/E
And they scream and they scream and they scream and they scream
   Csus2                 Em7     Dm7/A            Bm7/A     
Long live the king, long live the queen

[Bridge]

And to see me made her awful

And to touch me made her awful

Like I said, it doesn't sound very good on guitar, but it's as close as I can get it.
