Title track from Janelle Monáe's awesome second album. Basically it's just Bm A Em F#7 
repeated all through the song, but I've included the full lyrics below as well with 
timings for when to swap the chords. Let me know any feedback or thoughts!

***********************************************************

Bm    A
   El-lec-lec-lec-lec-lec-lec-lec-lec-lec-tric
Em  F#7
    Lay-lay-lay-lay-lay-lay-lay-lay-dy

   Bm                        A
Ooh, you shock it, shake it, baby
Em                         F#7
   Electric lady, you're a star
Bm                          A
  You got a classic kind of crazy
Em                           F#7
   But you know just who you are
Bm                             A                Em
   You got the look the Gods agree they wanna see
                         F#7
   All the birds and the bees
                                  Bm
Dancing with the freaks in the trees
                               A
   And watch the water turn to wine
                          Em
Out in space and out your mind
                       F#7
Ooh, shock me one good time

         Bm        A       Em
Electric Lady, get way down
         F#7
Cause tonight we gon' do what we want to
         Bm        A       Em
Electric Lady, get way down
         F#7
Cause tonight we gon' do what we want to

Bm    A
La----dy (baby)
         Em    F#7
Electric La----dy

  Bm                       A                 Em
Yeah, I'll reprogram your mind, come on, get in
                       F#7
My spaceship leaves at ten
Bm                    A                Em
    I'm where I wanna be, just you and me
                     F#7                         Bm
Baby, talking on the side, as the world spins around
                          A
Can you feel your spine unwind,
                            Em
And watch the water turn to wine?
                       F#7
Ooh, shock it one good time


         Bm        A       Em
Electric Lady, get way down
         F#7
Cause tonight we gon' do what we want to
         Bm        A       Em
Electric Lady, get way down
         F#7
Cause tonight we gon' do what we want to

Bm
Gloss on her lips, glass on the ceiling
        A
All the girls showing love while the boys be catching feelings
Em
Once you see her face, her eyes, you'll remember
           F#7
And she'll have you falling harder than a Sunday in September
Bm
Whether in Savannah, K-Kansas or in Atlanta
A
She'll walk in any room, have you raising up your antennas
Em
She can fly you straight to the moon or to the ghettos
F#7
Wearing tennis shoes or in flats or in stilettos
  Bm
Illuminating all that she touches, eye on the sparrow
  A
A modern day Joan of her Arc or Mia Farrow
Em
Classy, sassy, put you in a razzle-dazzy
       F#7
Her magnetic energy will have you coming home like Lassie
         Bm
Singing, "Ooh, shock it, break it, baby"
A
Electro-, sophisti-, funky, lady
Em
We the kind of girls who ain't afraid to get down
         F#7
Electric ladies go on and scream out loud!

         Bm        A       Em
Electric Lady, get way down
         F#7
Cause tonight we gon' do what we want to
         Bm        A       Em
Electric Lady, get way down
         F#7
Cause tonight we gon' do what we want to


 Bm
Ooh, shock it, break it, baby
 A
Electric Lady, Electric Lady
        Em
Singin' boom, shock it, break it, baby
 F#7
Electric Lady, Electric Lady

I tried doing [xxx211] - I think that's F/A - instead of D and it seems to sound better to me.

Just a suggestion!

I think the A sounds better as an Am for this song as a suggestion. Also this is her 3rd album the first one is amazing give it a listen. Thanks for this tab!

Hey guys, thanks for the comments:
keeleu - I can't try this right now but I'll give it a go and if I agree I'll change the chords accordingly (ac-chord-ingly?)
GreyMatter.5 - yeah I do like Metropolis but that's really more like an EP than a full album. I think of Metropolis as kinda the introductory EP as it's suite I on its own, then the ArchAndroid (suites 2 and 3) as album one, and the Electric Lady (suites 4 and 5) as album 2. But agreed, all her stuff is amazing. Like with my comment to keeleu above, I'll give it a go and see how it feels!
