Verse 1:
e                         e/C# e
They said release 'Remote Control'
    B                        e
But we didn't want it on the label
e                    e/C# e
They said, "Fly to Amsterdam"
    B                       e
The people laughed, but the press went mad

Chorus 1:
C#m~    A~   B~               e~
Ooh ooh ooh- Someone's really smart!
C#m~    A~   B*
Ooh ooh ooh- Complete control, that's a laugh!

Verse 2:
       e                  e/C#         e
On the last tour my mates couldn't get in
    B                                 e
I'd open up the back door, but they'd get run out again
         e                  e/C# e
At every hotel we was met by the Law
B                    e
Come for the party - come to make sure!

Chorus 2:
C#m~    A~        B~                e~
Ooh ooh ooh- Have we done something wrong?
C#m~    A~      B*
Ooh ooh ooh- Complete control, even over this song

Verse 3:
e                        e/C#  e
They said we'd be artistically free
B                          e
When we signed that bit of paper
e                          e/C#   e
They meant let's make a lotsa mon-ee
    B              e
An' worry about it later

Chorus 3:
C#m~    A~        B~         e~
Ooh ooh ooh- I'll never understand
C#m~    A~      B*
Ooh ooh ooh- complete control - lemme see your other hand!

Bridge: (arrpegiate these chords till "...ain't gonna last)
B       A        C#m~
I don't trust you, why do you trust me
D  A  e~
        Huh?
B            A           C#m~
All over the news spread fast
        D                     A                 e~
They're dirty, they're filthy, they ain't gonna last!
B            A             C#m     
This is Joe, public speaking
       D                  A                   e
I'm controlled in the body, controlled in the mind
B         A          C#m
This is a PUNK ROCKER, 
     D                     A     e
Were controlled in the body...
