The songs is pretty simple, it's just straight power chords. Just a heads
up: the chords are a mix of the first a second octave, so listen to the song
find out exactly which chords to play. Special thanks jakethief@gmail.com,
who's tab of this was used as a starting point. But basically, I tabbed it
myself outside of the verse riff, so any mistakes are most likely my fault.
Any questions/comments/corrections should be directed to

Lyrics straight from Honest Bob's site.

Intro: B E F# E B x2

B                       E       F# E  B
  If I had you I'd hold you like a guitar
                        E           F#   E  B
I could slay you with a well-placed F sharp barre
                               D#
If you don't want to hear that tune I'll leave my fingers where they are

G#           E               G#             E
   And every time I see your face I want to touch it
      G#              E
And I know I'll never touch it
      G#        E   C#
I get by, I get by


A# B G# F# C#
            F#
And I can't tell how hard I tried
A# B G# F# C#
            F#
I can't reveal what I can't hide
A# B G# F# C#
            E
I said that I was fine, I lied
B A#        G#     F#        C             E
  But I can stick around and see you smile from the side

(same chords for verse and chorus 2)

I say William Shakespeare had the right idea
Put your passion in a poem she won't hear
If your heart is whole again you can publish it next year
And every time I see your neck I want to kiss it
And I know I'll never kiss it
I get by, I get by

And I've been in my head too long
To know when what I think is wrong
But I can write another song
And I can stick around and see you as you sing along

F# B E C# F# D E
F# B E C# F# D E F# A# D# G#

F#        B      E      C#       F#    D        E        E       F#
   I had another set of words to use instead of what I'm singing here
                B    E        C#    F#       D      E     F#
The rhymes were intricate and every line was filled with alliteration and
    A#     D#   G#
the best poetic tricks
F#         B       E        C#      F#      D       E       E      F#
   It demonstrated just how clearly I'm the perfect guy for you to hear
       B    E     C#      F#    D      E       F#
But in reality perfection isn't really what we want so we just
A#          D#     G#
throw words at the page and we
F#         C#         E      B          F#
Call it a masterpiece if any part of it sticks

F# C# E E E E E    < F#, C#, low E, high E, low E, high E, low E
F#           C#          E E   E  E    EF#
   I've been waiting on another bright idea
(listen to the song to get the timing)

(repeat, slowly speeding up)

B           C#           F#  E               B
  I've been working on a song that you won't hear
          C#           F#  E               B
I've been working on a song that you won't hear
          C#           F   E              B
I've been working on a song for you, dear
C# F#       E                      B
   And everybody tells me that I'm fine
C# F#       E                    B
   And everybody tells me not to mind
C# F#       E                      B
   And everybody says just toe the line
C#     E    E F# E        E    F#  E         E    F   E
   And everybody tells me that the world was made for me to play in
                               (^ low E, high E, F#)
but I don't believe them 

Outro: B C# E x3
       B C# E B F#
