The chord after the Asus4 can be skipped if wanted to, since it's just a detail in 
the song. (in Verse 1 & 3)

Intro:
G/C D/B A Asus4 A

VERSE 1:
G/C             D/B
  The sun is a light bulb

A            Asus4     A 
 A candle's a treat

G/C                        D/B
  The curtains stay closed now

A            Asus4    A
 On my little retreat

G/C                 D/B
 And I'll only take medicine

A                    Asus4   A
 If it's followed by sweets

G/C             D/B
 A sickly pink liquid

A                Asus4     A
 That puts me to sleep

CHORUS 1:
A Dsus2 C5 | A Dsus2 BB5

A Dsus2  C5
        My head beats a better way

A Dsus2  BB5
        Tomorrow a better day

VERSE 2:
G/C                D/B
 And I can watch TV

A
 While I'm wrapped up in bed

G/C                    D/B
 And mother makes sure that

A
 I'm watered and fed

G/C                  D/B
 My best from school will

A
 Come over and stare

G/C          D/B
 At me in my bubble

A
 Of germified air

CHORUS 2:
A Dsus2  C5
        My head beats a better way

A Dsus2  BB5
        Tomorrow a better day

BRIDGE 1:
Dsus2               BB           A
 When I'm asleep the smoke fills me

Dsus2       BB                      A
 I feel the heat, my illness leaves me

SOLO 1: [in Am / C]
(chords played are):
C Bm A

WIERD BRIDGE THINGY:
A [A5 Asus2 A Asus4] A
  [  played  fast  ]

CHORUS 3:
A Dsus2  C5
        My head beats a better way

A Dsus2  BB5
        Tomorrow a better day

BRIDGE 2:
Dsus2               BB           A
 When I'm asleep the smoke fills me

Dsus2       BB                      A
 I feel the heat, my illness leaves me

SOLO 2: [in Am / C]
(chords played are):
C Bm A

VERSE 3/ OUTRO:
G/C             D/B
  The sun is a light bulb

A            Asus4     A 
 A candle's a treat

G/C                        D/B
  The curtains stay closed now

A            Asus4    A
 On my little retreat

G/C          D/B
 But after a while

A                   Asus4 A
 The noise from the street

G/C                D/B
 Is making me wish I

A               Asus4 A
 Was back on my feet

ENJOY!
