Great proto-punk song by Jefferson Airplane, originally on SURRREALISTIC PILLOW (1967) 
later a spectacular live version on BLESS ITS POINTED LITTLE HEAD (1968). The only other 
on the internet is extremely inaccurate, and I'm sure this tab is perfect.

Verse:
C#m
Her neon mouth with the blinking soft smile

C#m
Is nothing but an electric sign

C#m
You could say she has an individual style

C#m
She’s part of a colorful time


Chorus:

Am                  D
Super-sealed lady, chrome-color clothes

Em                  D
You wear 'cause you have no other

Am            D
But I suppose no one knows

B
You're my plastic fantastic lover

Repeat Intro

Verse 2:

C#m
Your rattlin' cough never shuts off

C#m
Is nothin' but a used machine

C#m
Your aluminum finish, slightly diminished

C#m
Is the best I ever have seen


Chorus 2:

Am            D
Cosmetic baby plugged into me

Em             D
And never ever find another

Am             D
And I realize no one's wise

B
To my plastic fantastic lover

Verse 3:

C#m
The electrical dust is starting to rust

C#m
Her trapezoid thermometer taste

C#m
All the red tape is mechanical rape

C#m
Of the TV program waste


Chorus 3:

Am                D
Data control and IBM

Em                   D
Science is mankind's brother

Am               D
But all I see is drainin' me

B
On my plastic fantastic lover

on listening to the track i dont think this is right. the chorus is close but the verse's are totally wrong. i think its more of an e7 chord rather than a c#m chord. if you do figure it out please post it. i really want to play this song.
