Em C G G/F#

[Verse]

Em           C
  You were a child 
                 G               G/F#
Crawling on your knees toward him 
Em                C
  Making momma so proud 
                  G       G/F#        
But your voice is too loud 
Em                     C
  We like to watch you laughing 
          G            G/F#
Picking insects off of plants 
Em                C        G      G/F#
  No time to think of consequences 


[Chorus]

Control yourself 
Take only what you need from them 
A family of trees wanting to be haunted 
(x2) 


[Verse]

The water is warm 
But it's sending me shivers 
A baby is born 
Crying out for attention 
Your memories fade 
Like looking through a fogged mirror 
Decisions to 
Decisions are made and not bought 
But I thought this wouldn't hurt a lot 
I guess not 


[Chorus]

Control yourself 
Take only what you need from them 
A family of trees wanting to be haunted 
(x2)

Control yourself 
Take only what you need from them 
A family of trees wanting to be haunted
(x3)
A family of trees...


Version II, without capo(the way the kooks actually played it )

F#m           D
  You were a child 
                 A               A/G#
Crawling on your knees toward him 
F#m                D
  Making momma so proud 
                  A       A/G#        
But your voice is too loud 
F#m                    D
  We like to watch you laughing 
          A            A/G#
Picking insects off of plants 
F#m                D        A      A/G#
  No time to think of consequences 

And so on...

The Kooks tab to this is flawless. i saw Pritchard playing this and those are the exact chords, well done. the intro is a bit confusing for me though =S idk why, just is

F#m & D (Em & C) Are played before the lyrics are sung ..it must look like this:
F#m(Em) D(C) A(G) A/G#(G/F#)
We like to watch you laughing
