So this is my version of an acoustic tab for this song (as I saw no one else had done one yet!)
If you listen to the track you should get the rhythm (it's very distinctive latin
sounding track!) Hope you enjoy it, and happy playing! Sam

                            Fm7
Well you were just too damn aloof
                            C7
Wearing your Morrissey t-shirt
                                C7
The kind of girl that's born for youth
                              Fm7
Well that's a blessing and some curse
                          Fm7
I tell you son beware of those
                A#/Bbm7
Who peak too early
                               Fm7     C7
Cause all that magic can't be froze
                              Fm7
And now it's you who ain't worthy

                  A#/Bbm7
So baby when I get famous
                  Fm7
Everybody's gonna see
           C7    A#/Bbm7
Awoh-oh-oh-oah
                      Fm7
You never really knew me


(Repeat as in above Verse & Chorus)


Does it make sense to simplify
Now we're knotted in riddles
But I don't care, do you know why
The girls are falling like skittles
Whoever said you needed rights
To tame your beauty
I'll say goodbye to lonely nights
Girls form an orderly queue please

So baby when I get famous
Everybody's gonna see
Oh oh oh
You never really knew me

So given knowledge, given time
I'd take us out of recession
I'd tell the world that all was fine
And that there freedom's a blessing
Cause when I'm looking from the top
You'll all seem smaller
Ain't that what all us humans want?
To stand that little bit taller

So baby when I get famous
Everybody's gonna see
Oh oh oh
You never really knew me
[x5]
