[Verse 1]
                    G#m
Well Lanky Lenny is too tall to be lost and found
    E
Too big for the cages at the city pound
                B
Oh what will we do? 
                                      F#
Yeah, what will we do for fun and for free?
                               G#m
It seems the roads are growing wider and wider most every day
   E                                          
I used to love to drive but now I stay off the lanes
     B                                            F#
What is the use of standing up if there's nowhere to lean?
       G#m
Oh but somehow we’re getting by.
   E
It seems a little bit easier to touch the sky
    B
But something is coming for you,
                        F#
Something’s coming for me.

                   E
Oh, well can't you see, no?
B                F#
Yeah no, no, no, no,
                   E
We’re not like the others.
               B        F#         
Yeah baby it’s true-ooh, ooh, ooh, 
E
ooh, no
B                 F#    
Yeah, no, no, no, no, no
           E
We’re not like the others.
                                      G#m
And well we couldn’t be, if we wanted to.

[Verse 2]
                       G#m
So poor Lazy Lauren is too small to go out of doors
          E
She's too loud for the neighbors, she's too slow for the chores
           B
What will she do? 
                                 F#
What will we do for fun and for free?
                          G#m
See the roads are getting wider and wider most every day
            E
You know, I used to love to drive but now I stay off the lanes
            B                                         F#
What is the use of looking out if there is nothing to see?

[Chorus]
               E
Oh but you and me, no
B                F#
Yeah, no, no no, no
                   E
We're not like the others
                 B         F#        E
Yeah, baby, it's true- ooh ooh, ooh, ooh

No, No,
B             F#
yeah, no, no, no, no
                   E
We're not like the others
                                    G#m
Oh and we couldn't be, if we wanted to.

Cause we know, no, no, 
B                 F#
Yeah, no, no, no, no,
                    E
We're not like the others
                B          F#          E
Well maybe it's true- ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
    B
Oh, no, 
        F#
No, No, No, No
                   E
We're not like the others
                                     G#m
When we couldn't be, oh, if we wanted to.


[Side notes]


I like to play this all barre chords. It feels nifty going from the E barre on the 7th fret over 
to the B barre, also on the seventh, then sliding down to the F# on the second fret.

For the chorus I start on the E barre and descend through B, F# and then down to open E for just 
that segment.

It really is fun to play around though. Find the chords all over. See how quickly you can 
transition. See how clearly you can execute each version of the same chord and get a feel for the 
different voicings and how they work together. 

Increase your fret board knowledge in the process.

I find when experimenting with Shakey's songs it helps to remember that:

A G barre (third fret - E shape) is a C if you move it over and play an A shape barre with the root 
on the 5th string. 

An A barre (E-shape) moves over to a D under the same circumstances. (A.D. anno domini)

A B shifts to an E (just BE)

C to an F (the two worst swear words, starting with the worst)

D to a G. (Dolce and Gabbana? Donate Gladly? Whatever you remember. I dunno)


It can be surprising how many chords for songs are in such close proximity with this in mind.

It may not be your favourite voicing for the chords in context but it seems to be opening doors for 
me and mastering the E shape and A shape barres is something that should be done thoroughly in my 
opinion. 

But most of all, play around. Shakey rarely does the same rendition twice - sometimes he flat out 
opts to use a different key altogehter. He may have tremendous skill but he certainly isn't rigid 
in his playing style to his benefit.

------------------------------------
Not quite there with barres? 
------------------------------------

Capo on IV and change chords as follows: (this version is on Ultimate-Guitar too)

G#m - E - B - F# to:
Em  - C - G - D (and you can play open chords or throw some barres in too.) Go nuts.

*I'm not quite there with the picking but I'll keep at it and transcribe it when I nail the 
fundamentals*
