There's pretty much just two parts to the song. 3 if you count the short bridge. If you
listen to the version they recorded at the Orchard in NYC. It's easier to hear the
than in the album version, and I think the vocals are way more intense. You can find it 
iTunes or somewhere else I'm sure. - Scott Melendez


*Note: You can add a F# to the D Chord. By F# I mean 2nd fret from the capo. It's
a G#, but everything is relative to the capo. Hope that's not too confusing.

Intro:
Bm , D , G , D , Asus4, A

Bm                D           G
Please, curtains in. Start us off...
D            Asus4    A
You swing first.
Bm                           D
Sorry. I don't know what I said,
                          G
but you're crying now again,
           D               Asus4     A
and that only makes it worse.

Bm             G
Let me do my job.

Bm             G       A
Let me do my job.


*The G chords are quick in this

D                   G            D                G
Sylvia, get your head out of the oven.
Bm
Go back to screaming and cursing,
G                   Asus4             A
remind me again how everyone betrayed you.
D                   G            D
Sylvia, get your head out of the covers.
                        Bm
Let me take your temperature,
           G                        Asus4
you can throw the thermometer right back at me,
  A                                  D
if that's what you want to do, okay?

Please, please calm down. Steady out, I'm terrified.
Sorry, I want us to ally, But you swing on little knives.
They're only sharp on one side.

Let me do my job.
Let me do my job.

Sylvia, get your head out of the oven.
Go back to screaming and cursing,
remind me again how everyone betrayed you.
Sylvia, get your head out of the covers.
Let me take your temperature,
you can throw the thermometer right back at me,
if that's what you want to do, okay?

Sylvia, can't you see what you are doing?
Can't you see I'm scared to speak,
and I hate my voice 'cause it only makes you angry.

Sylvia, I only talk when you are sleeping.
That's when I tell you everything,
And I imagine that somehow you're going to hear me.

Everything sounds about right except for the Bm on "Let me do my job".

Oh, also the chorus where you play D, G, D, G doesn't sound right. If I find anything that sounds better I'll make sure to post.

Ok so this is what I think sounds best for the chorus of the album version:

D Bm
Sylvia, get your head out of the oven.
G
Go back to screaming and cursing,
Asus4 A
remind me again how everyone betrayed you.
